You mean a game where a jedi apprentice can destroy the universe with a single thought? No thanks.

No wait, let me guess. Jar Jar Binks, Sith Lord. No thanks.

Wait, I remember, Star Wars The Force Unleashed. No, that would be another horrible idea.

Look Mr Lucas, since Jedi Knight Dark Forces II it's been all downhill. For the good of Star Wars the government should step in and remove the property from your keeping.

nix2861d ago

i agree...

though i wish they would bring back Pod Racing for PS3 or 360. that was fun. otherwise rest of the games are all bad.

Thank god the movies were great.

calis2861d ago

morgan - do you ever stop talking rubbish?

TFU wasn't a bad game.
Kotor 1 and 2 are some of the best games ever created and the Battlefront series is top notch.

W-k2861d ago

say what you want but i love Star Wars The Force Unleashed its the best star wars game on the ps3/360 right now, imo it was pretty cool.

ikaris2861d ago

" imo it was pretty cool."

I think halo is a pretty cool guy, he kills aliens and I forgot the rest of the meme. But come on, you've got to present a better argument.

And Lucasarts didn't do Kotor1/2 or battlefront. They published I believe, not developed.

Hellsvacancy2861d ago

TFU was horrible, sum of it was cool but there wasnt enough 2 keep me entertained

LucasArts should give up on Star Wars it so 80s, try summin new

karan86242861d ago

If its not KOTOR 3 or BF3, George Lucas better start running

Pumbli2861d ago

Why do people always forget Star Wars: Republic Commando? It's actually one of my favorite FPSs ever. Better yet, anyone remember Empire at War for the PC and it's expansion Forces of Corruption? Anyone?

I'm a big Star Wars fan, I've played most of the Star Wars games and I fall in love almost every time, even with TFU... :P

Darth Vader is to me what Edward Cullen is to 13 year old girls. :P

SixTwoTwo2861d ago

idk dude i for one would love another force unleashed or battlefront game

morganfell2861d ago (Edited 2861d ago )

Republic Commando had some good 'moments' but it was far less a Star Wars game than Jedi Knight and thus part of the downhill. It was also last gen. With the most capable hardware ever they should be producing better games, not bargain bin trash. The Sith Edition is a sham and just another attempt to milk the Star Wars cash cow.

TFU a good game? Ha ha. Pulling down ships from the sky? And oh, what's this? I know when that Apprentice will use the force BECAUSE HE IS STANDING STILL. Never mind other characters can use the force on the move. SO much for Euphoria impressing the hell out of everyone.

Law of Lucasarts design? One enemy is good, a hundred is a hundred times better.

And when did the force get so powerful and lightsabers become little more capable than a whiffle ball bat. One swing should cut a stormtrooper or rebel in half. But instead it's about as effective as one of those nerf bats. The apprentice would have been better off with a large Our Team is #1 foam finger.

Doesn't that goat necked Lucas have enough money without continually cashing in with bad designs.

havikzero2861d ago

I hope its not kotor III if they are making it.

Pumbli2860d ago

morganfell - Well I really liked RC, maybe you didn't like it that much but that's your opinion.

I'm entitled to mine and in my opinion TFU is a good game, will your whining about the game change my opinion on it? No. Will anything you say against the game or bash it make me think less of it? No.

I really don't get what you're trying to accomplish here, bashing the hell out of TFU? Gratz, I think you deserve a round of applause for a job well done my man. :)

JBaby3432860d ago

I would have liked some DMM in it like they promised but the force powers were amazing. It's what the force should have been all long in my opinion because in the movies it seems to be a pretty weak "force" most of the time. Yoda's battle with the emperor being the exception.

Morganfell usually I agree with your comments but I disagree on this one. "lightsabers become little more capable than a whiffle ball bat. One swing should cut a stormtrooper or rebel in half. But instead it's about as effective as one of those nerf bats. The apprentice would have been better off with a large Our Team is #1 foam finger."

---You could say that about any hack n slash game when one swipe should kill or seriously injure someone but they keep coming like nothing happened. Heavenly Sword, NG series, GOW series, and tons of others. Take your pick the weapons are always unrealistic. Besides the game was the "Force Unleashed" not the "Lightsabre Unleashed".

morganfell2860d ago (Edited 2860d ago )

So the shortcomings of other games makes the failures here permissible?

Preposterous.

Particularly when so much ado was made about Euphoria. And even doubly so when previous Star Wars jedi games - Jedi Knight II on the PC - had remarkable dismemberment and lightsabers that actually worked.

One step forward and three steps back is inexcusable. I don't mean mods like this:

or this

http://www.youtube.com/watc...

As the first guy uses the code enabled in the dev console but he also has a blood mod installed. The code was simple:

g_saberRealisticCombat 1 - Dismemberments

And was a great way to play the game but Lucas Arts doesn't believe in advancing any gameplay or preserving the canon for that matter.

How come Nathan Drake can be shot 14 times with a machine gun and never die?
How can he recover from bullet wounds in mere seconds?

You really want to look at realism as a negative? You will be crushed in that argument.

morganfell2860d ago (Edited 2860d ago )

Oh look, it's another person that doesn't comprehend the difference between realism and established canon.

Who mentioned realism? Oh, that's right...YOU DID.

When speaking of Star Wars games it is in the light of canon, not actual reality where lightsabers do not even exist. Look around, see anyone else? That's what left field looks like.

Nathan Drake can take a certain number of rounds because that is the design of the world of Uncharted when it was first introduced. The developers didn't change it and put flying clowns in the game...which is the equivalent of what TFU devs did to the world of Star Wars.

And you obviously have never played Uncharted and you absolutely haven't tried it on Crushing mode because Drake certainly can't take 14 rounds from anything without dying 5 times over.

I DO NOT NEED TO SAY ANYTHING ELSE BECAUSE YOU PWNED YOURSELF MORE EFFECTIVELY THAN ANYONE ELSE.

calis2858d ago

"Oh look, it's another person that doesn't comprehend the difference between realism and established canon."

*sigh*

There are many Star Wars games where the lightsabre doesn't kill on one hit. It's all about adding to difficulty.

"Who mentioned realism? Oh, that's right...YOU DID."

Actually you did. But nice try.

"Nathan Drake can take a certain number of rounds because that is the design of the world of Uncharted when it was first introduced."

Yet they use "real" guns, such as desert eagle, M4 etc.

You know why Drake doesn't die on one hit? Because it's all about difficulty, not realism. Same with any Star Wars game. Or any driving game where you don't die smashing into a wall.

"The developers didn't change it and put flying clowns in the game...which is the equivalent of what TFU devs did to the world of Star Wars."

riiight.

"And you obviously have never played Uncharted and you absolutely haven't tried it on Crushing mode because Drake certainly can't take 14 rounds from anything without dying 5 times over."

lol, I see why people call your morganfail. Seriously? That's your argument. Because the hardest difficulty has your dying quicker. Wow, isn't that something.
And I bet the enemies take more damage before they die too.

"I DO NOT NEED TO SAY ANYTHING ELSE BECAUSE YOU PWNED YOURSELF MORE EFFECTIVELY THAN ANYONE ELSE."

You keep telling yourself that fanboy.

Out of nowhere Battlefront 3. (and the crowd go's wild)
:)

micro_invader2861d ago

Please, don't remind me. It hurts my soul :(

What that game could have been.

mj2462861d ago

The Battlefront series is absolutaly brilliant and i think 3 has the potential to be a very big title. Hopefully :)

Nac2860d ago

If anyone decides to make a sequel it will be Obsidian.

Nihilism2861d ago

Until I get kotor 3 and battlefront 3, I don't want anything they have to offer. the ONLY reason kotor 2 was a let down with the ending is because lucasarts are greedy c***s and forced obsidian to release it.

kaveti66162860d ago

Do you want Lucasart's to be behind KOTOR 3? I don't care if they publish it, but they better not touch it during development. Bring back Bioware, I say. But how the hell will EA let Bioware make a Kotor game?

calis2858d ago

"But how the hell will EA let Bioware make a Kotor game?"

Why wouldn't they?

Charmers2861d ago

Whatever Lucasarts make they can keep it off the PC we don't need their "dubious" quality on the format anymore. I used to be a huge fan of Lucasarts work but now what they produce is just pitiful. Until that changes I would be a sap and buy their rubbish.
