The second one was a rush-job. Pandemic did horribly under pressure and deadlines. With Battlefront 1 and Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction they weren't given strict time limits to meet regular deadlines and were able to stay creative with it. With both sequels however they were forced to deliver and meet deadlines (aka milestones) and did so just barely. Both sequels suffered from lack of polish in several areas while having very shoddy designs that over simplified mechanics that were otherwise awesome in the first games.

Also Force Unleashed 2 didn't have a great story. You found out you were possibly a clone, escaped from darkside training/captivity and made a real quick loop back to fight Vader without getting any real answers. Wasted campaign and player time.

FORCE UNLEASHED 3!!!!!! I mean come on guys yes the second was short but the gameplay and story was awesome if they do a really good job with a third game they could salvage their reputation and then also make a battlefront 3.

I'd like to see a Skyrim type game but set in the universe. Hell I just wish they would have released TOR on console. They prob won't ever finish Battlefront 3 and I'm not trying to fly around on a jetpack and shoot people. Thats what Halo is for. RPG please!

I was so sad when it turned out Spark Unlimited wasn't developing Battlefront 3. Those bastards kept on dropping hints on their twitter, leading everyone on until they announced they were helping on Lost Planet 3.

In my opinion, games that are meant for flight only get bland. If they have flight as a major part, they should also include ground combat. Look at Starhawk. That game blended the two very well (and added the awesome build and battle feature).
They could do a game where you take control of a pilot that takes missions, which occasionally take him to the ground for battles as well.

W.e happened to star wars flying games? Battle for naboo and all the rogue squadron games were awesome but there hasn't been any star wars flight sims since, with the size and scope of games like skyrim they could make truly massive battles in a battlefront esque sort of way but also as a flight sim

Something that incorporated the entire star wars galaxy would be sick. You can do anything nowadays size wise because of cloud storage and such

Raijin1999 I mentioned the Boba Fett connection here, in the original report (link also in the article). http://www.neoseeker.com/news/19066-lucasfilm-trademarks-star-wars-1313-file-suggests-new-video-game/

But you're right about a date reference. Hadn't even thought of that.

Oh yeah, some folks found a reference to the 1313 thing as being a past alias used by Boba Fett. However, it could also be the release date of Jan 3, 2013.

Ah, server sync is off. Your message just appeared before mine when it was just a double post. lol

Yeah, Force Unleashed was actually decent but the campaign ended up running short for the same reasons Battlefront 3 originally went under -- the suits pulled the plug. Think they even fired the game director before he finished the game. It's like suddenly you're playing the game and just getting into it and then bam, Vader fight and it's over. It did, however, leave the game open for another but after the piss poor reception of force unleashed 2 I doubt they'd consider that as a draw for a third game. They basically weakened the brand name and need to go back to something greater at this point.
(And Indy just isn't going to cut it, even if you can get past nuking the fridge)

Republic Commando was awesome. They still could make a sequel though set under Storm Troopers. "Imperial Commando" or something.

LOL, but of course then you wouldn't be able to shoot and aim anything unless you had the option of taking TK-421's helmet off.
