DICE could certainly make a great Battlefront but EA would just push them to make another CoD clone

Wow, what a shame. I'd imagine that Disney's cancellation of the show was done to draw the universe around the upcoming films. The Clone Wars are terribly interesting, but Disney may feel that they've been milked for all they're worth. :(

At least we get another battlefront that is really a shooter and not that battlefront elite squadron kind of game. Who knows hopefully it won't be a CoD clone. Even if it is I might play it anyway just to try it. I still remember how I got the first battlefront.

the only game that I would really play from EA is if they spent about four years making Battle Front 3. why four years? allows for a lot of time to correct stuff that Beta Testers didn't like.

Hmmm, that's interesting. I'm guessing this means the live-action series  that was planned for that time period won't be happening.

 

Either way, hopefully this cartoon lives up to its predecessor...

I hadn't thought about that at first, but seeing as they share the same premise, it's likely. I'm not sure which I'd rather have, but with a cartoon they can be more.. creative with action scenes and effects, so it might work out for the best.~|ET|~

I'm (maybe overly) optimistic about Rebels. Imo, the Clone Wars has been milked for all its worth for the past 10 years (at least in the 'mainstream' media). It's about time that Star Wars fans got a different setting.

It really is a pity that 1313 got cancelled. Boba Fett's adventures would have tied in nicely with the new focus they have on the Rebels period. :(

What?! Well that's a bummer since I remember hearing about it a few weeks ago. Though I should have seen it coming since Disney laid off the entire LucasArt's Staff.

 

Anyways, in Republic Commando, when you customize your character as a clone, there are five different armor paints. Fixer (Hacker I think), Scorch (Demolition), Sev (Sniper), Night Ops, and Recon. Is this a canon skin, or fanon skin, since I can't find out.

Bring back vehicles for ground battles like the first game had. Since DICE is doing it I'm pretty optimistic this will happen.

I'd also like larger maps and more troops on the field at once now that technology has advanced.

Also remakes of all the old maps.

Roll a pair of dice. If you get an even number, Han wins. If an odd, then Boba. That's my answer and I'm sticking to it.

I have only somewhat recently started getting into the Star Wars Expanded universe. To me, Star Wars was mostly six films, a tv show (The Clone Wars) and one awesome video game (Battlefront II)

 

Over the course of the last several months, that has changed, however.

 

I bought the KotOR games on a whim, and It's safe to say I have few regrets about that.

 

I checked out Genndy Tartakovsky's Clone Wars (the 2003 2d one), surprisingly more entertaining than the CGI version (then again, it is Tartakovsky we're talking about here)

 

Bought The Force Unleashed as well, definitely bridged the gap between episodes III and IV.

 

I'm currently reading Darth Bane: Rule of Two, and I'm already planning on picking up some more novels as well. (Any recommendations?)

 

Now, if only I could get Rogue Squadron and Episode I Racer working on my computer again, and fix that issue I have with TOR...
