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.

The other thing about the ad the showed at the VGA that angered me was how insulting it was to the potential player.

LA Employee 1: Hmm. Lets show him blowing up walls for no apparent reason with some random "something-something-dark side"- like quotes.
LA Employee 2: Ooh! And then we can show some thing like a rancor, but impossibly huge! They'll think that's really cool!
LA Employee 1: And then, he'll randomly shoot force lightning everywhere. Because force lightning is cool!
Common Sense: Don't you guys think its a bit insulting to assume that people will pay for a Star Wars game just because its got big things and looks shiny?
LA Employee 2: Who cares? as long as its got the star wars logo on it, people will buy it.
LA Employee 1: And if they don't, we already make money by existing, so its not like it'll affect us.
Spore! Star Wars! Dinosaurs!
Fanfic!

I think this can become pretty cool if they fix the flaws from the first one.

I LOVED the first one... The wii controls were perfect, but it was way too short...

As for how they can continue with the lead character dying?  They already did that with the secret apprentice twice... IN THE SAME F***ING GAME.  Don't tell me that they can't pull it off again.

Alternately, this game COULD be the early, pre-Juno training.  After all, he had a lot of dead pilots before she came along.

I had no problems with the Wii gameplay. that was its only redeeming value

"Can" isn't what's in question here. "Should" is.
