    Early early early build.

    What do you think? Potential? Space/flight combat looks promising at least.

    Maybe they couldn't figure out how to make it so one does not get fragged in the first seconds of game play.

    This is why it was cancelled, you can blame the assholes who now run LucasArts

    Let's keep in mind that the originals were made by Pandemic Studios and published by Lucasarts, while this new one is being made by DICE (ya hear?) and published by EA.

    EA is batting a solid zero when it comes to taking over brilliant franchises.
    ME2&3
    DAII
    Sim City
    Command and Conquer
    Ultima

    I'm sure you could dig through their acquisitions and not find one series that was actually made better by the takeover.
    That doesn't mean I won't remain hopeful, but I will seriously be watching the most discerning aficionados for honest reviews, and not the fucking mountaindewdoritosGOTY horseshit that permeates the professional reviews as well as the metacritic scores. What's this world coming to when you can't even trust metacritic?

    As much as I dislike EA, I think they can pull this game off. Primarily because it is being developed by DICE, which has had great success with the Battlefield series which has become the most popular FPS games on the market. Couple that with the fact they will be using the Frostbite 3 Engine, which is a very good game engine (although the current version of the CryEngine is leaps and bounds a better game engine in my opinion), I think EA can create a great Star Wars Battlefront game.
