le sigh. I loved those games and with the dawn of the console multiplayer age it would have been a powerful contender and still could be. But it seems it is not to be.

Also I want this game, hope somebody comes and picks it up. Yes I'm looking at you Disney, you'd better get to steppin'.

TBH, a 50 grand kickstart would have worked well, if it was really 99%. I've seen new-dev indie devs get 80k for a game. This would easily pop 150k.

What puzzles me is that no one took it up. With how successful Battlefront II was, I would think that SOMEONE would have picked this up.

I think we can find evidence in its former dev why it wasn't picked up. Apparently the new heads of LucasArts made finishing the game far more troublesome than was worth it. If they were 99% done then its obvious someone wanted it to not come out. Why would another developer want to pick up a game that was so complete but was still dropped by higher? Sounds like a trap to me.

It's too bad I used to play those games. I definitely would have bought that game if it wasn't a failure financially.

Sorry, can't give you guys Battlefront III, play one of these lego star wars or shitty kinect games instead... very irritating

Just think, if I played Battlefront 2 from the time it came out to now, I'd probly be playing SWBF3 till 2020! At least! But Im glad they finally came out with it and told us the truth.

Another thing, I heard that Free Radical is now Crytek? If so this game would have been AMAZING. Lucasarts, you have missed out on an immense amout of profit here. Since that is what you are obviously after, WHY DIDNT YOU PUBLISH???

Massive shame TBH. Just hope that now with the studio being part of Crytek and assuming that they've kept the actual files from development, they could pursuade their owners to finish it and publish the game with permission from LucasArts of course... not sure why either since LucasArts would have nothing to lose from it, it's just their franchise so if anything they'll be entitled to royalties.

What I don't understand was how this game got to 99% completion without any publicity. Where they just going to mysteriously show up in gamestop stores one day?

Damn it. This game would've been amazing with the massive online community of this generation of gaming.
