Star Wars Battlefront 3 is all I care about... I'll take the other stuff, but it's been years since the leaked footage and cancelling of what may have been the best Star Wars game ever :(

I'd add Republic Commando to that list.

Oh yes Republic Commando definitely! I thought that they hinted a sequel in the game's ending but sadly I never saw any news about it :(
NukaCola  +   1204d ago
I really want a sequel to Jedi Knight. Outcast is by far my favorite SW game next to KOTOR. I really didnt like the way Academy was set up. It was the FFX-2 of that series IMHO. I do hope they bring Kyle Katarn back for another showdown.
r1sh12  +   1204d ago
I cant believe that knights of the old republic isnt on that list.
I think those should be made along with KOTOR 3.
Personally I dont think the old republic is the same as the kotor series.
duplissi  +   1204d ago
tor is more of a spin off. it is very much like kotor.
christian hour  +   1204d ago
I was raging that we werent getting another KOTOR initially, mainly because i dont like the idea of paying monthly subs to play a game, and I sure as hell wasn't going to have a pc to run the thing so I was kind of disappoint that the old republic was going to be an mmo. Of course my opinion has changed drastically since then, i was fortunate enough to have a friend with the game and every few nights I'd go up and play as a character he let me make on one of his free slots. It has KOTOR all over it, it feels just like a KOTOR game but with so much more, need to get it into my life asap, getting withdrawl symptoms when im not in my friends house playing it haha. if yr looking for more kotor action r1sh12, i would recommend checkign it out at least, especially if you have the hardware to run it, every now and then they do free weekends where you can download and play the game for free, give you an idea if you're into it or not before parting with yr hard earned cash.
Guitardr85  +   1204d ago
@ r1sh12

The main reason KOTOR probably isn't on the list is because "KOTOR 3" has already been made. It's called Star Wars: The Old Republic. If you havne't tried it yet, do so. You will find it is very much Kotor 3!
r1sh12  +   1202d ago
will check it out when I get more time.
Got finals coming up next month, but after that Ill give it a go
RedDead  +   1205d ago
In no particular order

Jedi knight
Tai fighter
awi5951  +   1205d ago
old republic reminds me very much of kotor. it has too much kotor in it. Its a MMO and no one groups up they just play solo doing their class story or side stories on each planet.
Nevers  +   1205d ago
I was a huge KOTOR fan... but was so disappointed they chose to go the MMO route rather than just putting out a sequel.
christian hour  +   1204d ago
nevers, I was the same, cos i'm not a big mmo guy, and I dont like the idea of paying monthly to play a game, and i absolutely love KOTOR, but my god its just like kotor with the ability to team up with people, you also get AI companions and build a party, it has a very big single player feel to it compared to other mmos. And awi5951 i have only played the game in my friends house but he's part of a guild and they're always teaming up to take on the heroic4 and group quests, very hard to do on your own unless yr super duper lvl 50 or something, you see tonnes of people grouping up, but you can just as easily make yr way through the game solo, though yr missing out on some great times, community is fairly friendly, nobodys called me a nigger or a faggot or even a noob, everyones been helpful anytime I've played it. Got to applaud that because anytime i've played an mmo i've only been partied up with assholes haha.

Personally I'd love to see a new dark forces:jedi knights game, when that first came out on pc (dark forces 2) it blew me away, i still go back to it from time to time, would love a new one with Kyle Katarn, jedi outcast and jedi academy were good, but i didnt like the transition from fps to third person when jedi knight became its own little franchise. Still loved the games but would love a FPS sequel, "dark forces 3:jedi knight 7:outcast academy 3" or whatever theyd have to call it now.

"Tai fighter"

mep69  +   1204d ago
what do you mean by Tai fighter? Tie fighter or star wars teras kasi ?
Anyway game devs need to get off their asses and give us a good Star Wars game that isn't an MMO.
I for one reall want a new Jedi Knight, KOTOR would be awesome, but it isn't going to happen
MagicAccent  +   1204d ago
You forgot Tie Fighter.
abombletap  +   1205d ago
thank you for not putting in unleashed...
DarkBlood  +   1205d ago
hey i thought it was pretty cool for my self though i have to say i was slightly confused at unleased 2 ending but either way anything crazy can happen in that universe
christian hour  +   1204d ago
The first unleashed was a great showcase for the tech and really set the playing field for an amazing sequel that could have expanded on everythign they put in place in the first one... but we all know how that one turned out... such a shame :( unleashed 2 was piss poor imo, still have a fondness for the original though
TheGrimBunny  +   1205d ago
I really wish they would just make Knights of the Old Republic 3, that would be great as good as the MMO might be, I loved the original two single player RPG's.
SPAM-FRITTER-123  +   1204d ago
so buy the old republic. it is basicaly 3. im about 60 hours into the sith warrior story and im only half way through.the games crafting,modding,crew skills and leveling up tree is much better than skyrim. by the way there is 8 story lines and 16 classes to play them. there is thousands of hours worth of old republic gameplay in the game (side missions also have deep story)

also revan is in the sith story lines.

if you want to play co-op then you can. if you want to play it on your own....you can.

the old republic doesnt get enough hype.

I have to agree with SPAM-FRITTER, if you can run it and afford it, get SWTOR, it basically is KOTOR 3. I was very skeptical at first, and annoyed that one of my favourite series had gone MMO instead of a nice new sequel. I didnt want to have to pay monthly and I didnt have a pc to run it, i still dont. And as of 3 weeks ago my opinion was still "F*** it", its an mmo it cant be anything like KOTOR in terms of story and how it feels. It is everything KOTOR was and much much more. Now I'm doing everything I can to build the cheapest rig i can to play this game. I go to my friends every 2nd or 3rd night just to play a bounty hunter character I started playing as. Forewarning, its addictive as hell, last mmo i played was Ultima Online, never got sucked into another one since, but damn this has me sucked in!

also they just released patch 1.2 that includes legacy mode, lots of cool features included but one of my favourites is a family tree, out of all the characters youve made you can assign them as relatives, friends, enemys etc, might not be a big deal to most people but I think its a great new feature, theres a LOT more to the legacy mode, i'd be here all day, but it definitely has made the game that much more appealing.

I can't believe Rogue Squadron hasn't been made in the last 10 years THAT GAME IS EPIC!
PopRocks359  +   1205d ago
Factor5 closed its doors after Lair bombed like a motherfucker. That's why. :(
duplissi  +   1204d ago
actually they only closed their american branch, their german branch is still operating.
Majin-vegeta  +   1205d ago
Nice but i would switch 3&1.

THESHAUNZY  +   1205d ago
t0mmyb0y  +   1205d ago
Finally a list people can agree with.
wedgie  +   1205d ago
Thing is Dark Forces and Jedi Knight are kind of under the same category. Its a progression.

So put a new single player KOTOR on there, and you got yourself a pretty good list.
THESHAUNZY  +   1205d ago
*cough old republic... *cough
christian hour  +   1204d ago
*cough* agree. I was in the new KOTOR single player game camp, that was before I actually played the old republic. It IS the next KOTOR single player game, with mmo features in abundance :D 300 years after kotor 2 and I came across a cult of Revanites, i hope that comes into it a bit more, Revan is one of my all time favourite VG characters, i pray he somehow survived being 300 years old :P i'm still only lvl 16 bounty hunter but I'll get there eventually haha
Captain Qwark 9  +   1205d ago
id add

pod racer, more like the 64 version, not the ps2 one
kotor 3

Dark Forces man, good times! Blasting Nerf Herders with um blasters ftw!
MrDead  +   1205d ago
Just stop turning Star Wars into a joke, there’s a generation that associate it with Jar-Jar and a dancing Han Solo, Han Solo would not dance and if he did it wouldn’t be like a dad at a wedding. For shame Lucas, for shame.

When I was growing up Star Wars was shining beacon of perfection, this needs to be so again.
LOL_WUT  +   1205d ago
Well said.
StrongMan  +   1205d ago
That abomination know as Kinect Star Wars has set the bar so low for Star Wars games that Lucas Arts really need to redeem the good name of Star Wars.
aftrdark21  +   1205d ago
Jedi Power Battles. I still have that game for my DC. It was sweet! Co-op and loads of fun. They left it open for a sequel in the ending. Think of it with the SWTFU style.
FlashXIII  +   1205d ago
THIS!!! I loved that game.
Neo Nugget  +   1205d ago
What about a Star Wars:Bounty Hunter Boba Fett game?

The one with Jango was pretty amazeballs.
Wumbo  +   1205d ago
I'm baffled that its 2012 and a next gen Battlefront has not come out yet.

A massive and polished starwars 3rd person war game with space battles and insane graphics just screams money and replayability.
adamant715  +   1205d ago
Jedi Knight is highest on my list tbh. Everything about the series was just perfect. Except Jedi Academy, that was bad.
Sithlord-Gamble  +   1205d ago
How can u make this list and not have Knights of the Old Republic on it ??!!??

Those were the greatest star wars rpgs ever and the only reason i bought the 1st xbox.

Total Fail IMO.
duplissi  +   1204d ago
i agree. swtor comes close! but being an mmo with a subcription fee.... well not good enough.

dont get me wrong i play some tor... ok a lot of tor, but i still would love to have a proper kotor... perhaps just like mass effect but with lightsabers
iagainsti120  +   1205d ago
I need my Rouge Squadron and X-Wing Vs. Tie Fighter action they were 2 of my favorite PC games in elementary school. Nothing is better than a good old Star Wars dog fighting game.
JKelloggs  +   1205d ago
Star Wars Republic Commando and Battlefront 3 would be ideal Star Wars game sequels
Trekster_Gamer  +   1205d ago
I agree with all but a HD Rogue Squadron with some extra goodies would get my money in a heartbeat!

Better yet combine a full FPS with Rogue Squadron!
Dlacy13g  +   1205d ago
Republic Commando... did I mention Republic Commando? Cause if I didn't, let me go on record and say they should make a new Republic Commando. :)
Theangrybogan  +   1205d ago
KOTOR 3! After they rerelease Kotor 2 with a better ending. Ahhh kotor 2, the original ME 3.
CYBERHATER  +   1205d ago
Jedi Knight 2!!!!!!!!
Perjoss  +   1205d ago
I used to play a fantastic star wars strategy game called Rebellion (I think its called Supremacy in some countries) I wish they would make an up to date version of that.
Nalrogi  +   1204d ago
Then you should buy Star Wars:Empire At War & the expansion pack. Pretty much a modern Rebillion but more focused on the battles.
Perjoss  +   1205d ago
I can just imagine it right now:

A group of super enthusiastic devs are invited to Skywalker ranch to showcase a brilliant 1:1 motion control lightsaber combat game made in the cryengine 3 with insane graphics. Lucas glares at them empty faced and says "hm ok, but I think we should go with that one with the dancing storm troopers instead"
NewVegasTroop  +   1204d ago
completely agree on the list, but why not also release HD collections, just image kotor collection with perfect performance, trophies, and the cut content from kotor 2 *gets boner*
BALLARD32  +   1204d ago
1. Battlefront III.
DasTier  +   1204d ago
No Republic Commando? Or Galactic Battlegrounds?
MacUser1986  +   1204d ago
Rouge Squadron would be awesome but if any game needs a remake or sequel it's Republic Commando.
