I haven't seen a thread about this title yet, so lock it up if old...

Thoughts & Comparisons
A lot of criticism is coming from Uncharted fans, and understandably so. It's a 3rd person cinematic interactive experience with cover systems - very similar to ol'Drake. But I like to think this title will be similar in departure to the classic N64 title, Shadows of the Empire. SotE was a dark 3rd person shooter that was a neat side story to the main SW theme. I can only hope.

I'm excited for this title and would love if it turned out like Shadows of the Empire. I do hope the game world is somewhat open, especially if it's going to be a dark metropolis.

Really hoping this is the turning point where Star Wars games are good again.

it lost me at cover based shooter. if there's one thing the world doesn't need more of, its cover based shooters. Can I have a Open World (universe?) Star Wars game? at this point I don't care if it follows GTA style of Open world or the Bethesda formula of open world.. I just want a open universe where I can play on planets, and in space. Like GTA / ES meets privateer .. but with STARWARS (set in the only time period that matters (the GCW!!))

^I'm hoping it's like Mass Effect, where it has some openness to it (though there are parts which are extremely linear).

But I do agree with you that a true open Star Wars game would be epic. No MMO, either.

Open world would be nice but to be honest, I would just like a decent star wars game set in a era that doesn't involve the bloody clone wars (BORING!!!!!). The GCW would be a interesting setting, although to be honest I would be more interested to see a game set in a era that is mostly unexplored by media (NJO and Legacy) where the overtone of the universe takes a nasty turn for the worst.

i could do a game set in the Thrawn Trilogy. But I see where you're coming from. Star Wars games Quality have gone downhill in recent years. a good one would be a welcome change of pace

They lost me at third person. Hasn't been a good Star Wars game since the Jedi Knight series and Republic Commando.

YJK could make for a fun semi light-hearted setting. I'm not a big fan of how grimdark the Star Wars universe has gotten. As soon as they turned Jacen into a sith I was done. What a complete shit turn for one of the best EU characters.

yea that was a huge cop-out.. they could have done something different with that story arc. instead they turned him in to a Sith George Bush Jr. (along with killing off Mara Jade and Him In the process.. they could have made him a uniter of the different religions (jedi /sith) but no.. they had to make him lose his shit like a generic baddie

That was my thought/hope as well. Also because I'm assuming in ME:SW1313 you can romance and sex Leia. What, don't tell me no one else thought it. :mad:

Yep. They did great things with him in NJO. The idea of him going off and exploring the nature of the Force and all that was excellent. Instead the fell back on the boring idea that in Star Wars everyone is either good or evil and you can't allow a main character to exist in some shade of grey. I might have even bought it if they had had him not kill Mara and fight against the sith eventually and use insight gained from the dual ideals to bring to two together. That whole thing just took a huge piss on over a decade of damn good character development.

This wins pretty hard right here.

StarWarsrim. Grand Theft Speeder. Some real potential IMO.

Some of the assets and animations are being used for upcoming films.

For all we know this game was just a tech demo. There may not of been any content other than what we saw in the trailer. But boy did it look good :D
