**** company now. No BF3, ruin Kotor 2, no Tie fighter/

Can I double/triple agree? I would if I could. Battlefront 3 better be happening still. I don't care if it's just starting, but it needs to happen.

A few less Star Wars games and some new IP's, They have lots of classic IP's like Monkey Island they could use.

aiBreeze1372d ago

A new Monkey Island game? What I'd give for that.

oldfriend861372d ago

Just make another Battle Front 3. Seriously. What is so hard about that concept?

It's not a crappy game, therefore they can't make it.

theWB271372d ago

Easy....Call of Duty and Battlefield. For them to make a quality game it'd need to be AAA caliber which means AAA development. Do you think they'd steal enough sales from those two to justify development in that genre....probably not. Business...

Yes. I'm a huge COD guy, but I'm an even bigger Star Wars fan.

Don't underestimate the power of the Force.

SWBF would be a HUGE game for any console. They do it right with clans and things like that... The game would be HUGE, and there is easily enough room for a Star Wars BF game, next to COD and BF.

theWB271372d ago

I get that...but do you risk that financially if the company is in a little flux? It might be huge to think of...but what if they go all out and it doesn't deliver quality wise? I'd do it next gen when they can wow people. But now is a little risky. Too late.

Even on a business stance, most VG companies are copping out and going for CoD/BF games. Dead Space, Resident Evil, Splinter Cell, are all doing it now and more games to follow.

I mean, look at the games Lucas Arts have now. They can't NOT afford to go with a new BF. A new IP would be more poison to the company. Just stick with what was good, which was the BF series.

No Battlefront, No Tie Fighter, No Force Unleashed, No KOTOR!!

More Maniac Mansion, More Indiana Jones, More Grim Fandango, More Loom...give me something other than Star Wars LucasArts!

They have published a few non-Star Wars games, but none of them have panned out to be great.

Let's see...there's Fracture, Lucidity, LEGO Indy games, and...Thrillvile. Heh...not nearly up to comparison to some of the games you've mentioned though.

no jedi outcast this gen has seriously pissed me off. maybe some of them guys need to quit so they can hire halfass smart people to get us some decent games.
