New Star Wars game to be announced?

Seems like they're going for something new, (new, functioning flight sim would be nice)  rather than a sequel. But considering how vague the teaser is, its anyone's guess

Thoughts?

Yes, I'd love another flight sim. I still play the original Rogue Squadron to this day, though on my old laptop now since my desktop is 64-bit (curse you, Vista!). It'd be lovely to play a new one with high-res graphics ;D

Although perhaps a new Battlefront wouldn't be half bad. Or a nice RPG. Then again, I don't exactly trust LucasArts to make a RPG, and I believe Bioware's busy at the moment.

My main disappointment with Rebel Strike was the horrid on-foot levels, which took up half the storyline...

At any rate, only two weeks 'til we found out for sure.  :)

Never played it. All Rogue Squadron's sequals were for the N64 if I remember correctly.

When was the last time we had a Star Wars flight sim? I think the most recent was that bit of flying you did in the space levels of Battlefront 2. *Runs off to check*

EDIT:
Most recent Flight sim: "Jump to Lightspeed" expansion pack for Galaxies, 2004  :P
Most recent standalone flight sim: "Jedi Starfighter", 2002
Most recent one for the PC, "Starfighter", 2001.

Bleh. I'll stick to my decade-old Rogue Squadron goodness, thanks.

Rebel strike was for the Game Cube.

Galaxies' flight simulation was acceptable for an RPG; the hyperspace technique was nice, but secondary weapons sucked. Customization was nice. Starfighter was ok (if a bit ridiculous in some of its plot devices). Neither would be counted as true flight sims though.

It has indeed been too long since a stand alone Flight sim has been made...

Yes indeed...

*Crosses fingers*

Weird thought... what if they somehow continued with the Lego Star Wars series.... But with something like KOTOR's plotline, or the Clone Wars series (either old or new).  ???

*thinks about it*

If they do, LucasArts is officially unbelievably insane as well as intensely stupid. If they managed to pull it off without it becoming a crazed incoherent mess, I will give them a medal.

The Force Unleashed II? Seriously?

Yet again, LucasArts resorts to a shiny cash cow.

Could someone explain to me how you can make a sequel to a game who's main character is DEAD?!?*


*Or, in the case of Dark side ending, killing the rebellion and darth vader, making everything after it impossible?

*sigh*

More continuity errors. At this point I don't think they give a darn anymore. I feel sorry for guy compiling a Star Wars timeline... the area from about 20 BBY to 5 ABY (before battle of Yavin and After Battle of Yavin, respectively) is such a cluster**** of inconsistencies and outright contradictions.  :-\

Didn't they already release a Star Wars: Unleashed: Dark Side edition or something which was the exact same game apart from a different box and like, an extra 15 minutes of gameplay somewhere in there?

I think it's a KOTOR MMO that they're working on. Them or someone else...

I know there's a KOTOR-era MMO in the works.

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.
