    As I mentioned in your other thread, PLENTY of good single player games.

    Single play Star Wars game?.... Sadly, last ones I can think of are the Force Unleashed games on PS3.

    Thanks!
    Currently I'm enjoying Battlefront 1 quite a bit, especially the 'Skirmish' mode, but it's frustrating to see what I'm missing out on not having a PSN plus account for online gaming..... oh well.....

    With the recent updates, the progression system became really shitty and unplayable.
    EA sabotaged this game on purpose because of the microtransaction affair which occured when the game was released.
    The story of the solo mode was pretty good though.

    Yeah, but look at it and keep in mind that a really great company was far along into a fully solo Star Wars game and EA cancelled it cause "no one likes single player anymore" and then put out this trash instead.

    Gotta love EA! I love that God of War made millions and millions more than BF2. I wish they'd un-cancel that Star Wars game since it looked AWESOME, but it's probably way too late. :(

    Indeed, it's all about multi-player modes nowadays...

    Mostly cause of monolithic companies trying to force it. Some of the top-selling games of the last couple years are single player only. EA just refuses to accept that and keeps doing stupid shit like this while declaring that single player is dead. I guess it's easier for them to adopt the business model of just endlessly recycling the same damn game, sticking tons of microtransactions in it, and releasing it yearly cause for some reason people keep paying for it. It's finally starting to backfire a bit, but there's still a silent majority of people out there that just buys their stupid sports games/COD games every year, only play them, and are happy as a clam. Argh.

    I really wish they'd go out of business and that it would somehow resurrect all the great studios they absorbed and dissolved. I don't get why that had to happen. Bioware is next on the block, I'm sure (not that there's much left to dissolve).

    as far as I'm concerned bioware was dead after ME3. especially after seeing some of the garbage writing in andromeda.

    Right, I'm talking the more literal kind where everyone gets fired and it gets scattered to the wind, like they've done to many good studios already. I don't get it. Why would anyone let EA buy them out? It's just a 90% guarantee your company is going to go away. I guess it's cause of execs wanting a huge payday and not caring about what happens to their hundreds of employees.

    I wish they'd just take the license from EA. Plenty of other companies could do great things with the franchise. Personally, unless we're getting KOTOR on consoles, I'd only want a story driven Star Wars game at this point.

    Side note, thinking about this, am I the only one who would dig remaking Shadows of the Empire? Or do something with Dash Rendar?

    ^I'd be more into a remake of Rogue Squadron, give how atrocious the flying has been in the SWBF games. But yeah, I could see SotE, too.

    In both cases, though, it might be nostalgia goggles getting in the way. ;)

    Rogue Squadron 2 and 3 really hold up. Up the resolution and polygons a bit and I'd buy that game again.
