Have there been any modern star wars games that haven't been terrible? These things spank of fucking a corpse.
also: awesome, a cinematic trailer that in no way represents the gameplay of the final product. i look forward to playing halo with jedi skins.
Oooh. It's an MMO. My bad. I guess I'll be ganking you instead. Even better.
Yes, there have been plenty of good Star Wars games in "modern times". At least according to popular opinions.
If you hated KOTOR or the Battlefront games then there is nothing that can be said to convince you otherwise.
Force Unleashed was fun. The power of the force in that game was supposed to be over-the-top as part of the gameplay but now it seems that "planet-crushing godmode" is the canonical standard for Star Wars.
I liked it better when being a high-ranking Jedi meant you could bluff your way past guards and awkwardly chop arms off in bars. Yoda with this new style of power could probably blow up a sun or something equally ridiculous.
Finally, this game will be balls, like all MMO's and anything made by valve.
Force unleashed was a pretty bad star wars game by most peoples standards, so that shows how good your taste is. Earlier games like the jedi knight series were great, same with kotr.
Valve has yet to make a bad game, so I don't know what kind of angsty crack you're smoking.
Force Unleashed was fun. That alone elevates it above the vast ocean of shit that is the average "Star Wars" game. It's no Rogue Squadron I'll give you that gladly but I wouldn't say it was "terrible" assuming you played it on a proper console of course.
Valve games that suck my balls; TF2, CS:S and DoD:S
P.S. I completed X-COM recently, great game.
For those of you just catching up you should know that Oddeye will mention how much he hates TF2 whenever there is an opportunity to do so.
Nobody has cared enough to ask him why.
this game might be good, if they ever finish doing voiceovers for every piece of text in the game.

Five stars for pretty cool CG action.
Cinematic trailers for video games are kinda lame though, especially when something this action-packed is being used to advertise a MMORPG, possibly the most boring and tedious genre of games in existence.

This is so great. Remember when everyone was like "E3 is so lame and it's on its way out." and it did indeed look like it was on its way out because it was just a giant money pit where companies just spent millions on showy bullshit and games sort of took a back seat to all that and then all the major game companies were like "We're bringing E3 back but it will be restrained and more down to earth!"
So in just 2 years or so we're already back to CG-only promos for games and some of the most painfully faked gameplay/game interaction performances perhaps in all gaming history.
Considering how bananas people go for pre-rendered scenes that have nothing to do with gameplay I'd be pumping them out too. Can't say I blame them basically.

This franchise is way past its expiration date.

Its good thing they continue the tradition of soldiers as meatshields and redshirts while Jedi's as the superheroes and the only ones that matter. After all, its like this is an MMO where they want people to pick between Jedi class and Republic Soldier class in fairly even numbers.
Wait, it is? Shit.
Ha ha, so it's just like the first Star Wars MMO?

Just let Bioware and Genndy Tartakovsky take over from now on, Lucas. They do your property better than you.
bioware doing an all 3D CGI star wars movie would be pretty sweet

This is the Titanic plot of Star Wars games.

Another game trailer without a single second of gameplay shown?
I'm glad they managed to make those troopers look like Gears of War guys.
Obviously this is a masterpiece in every way.

How long do we have to wait before George Lucas dies and we can put Star Wars in the hands of people with talent?
Conversely Star Wars is only "over" cause someone such as Lucas has fucked it up beyond repair ("its for kids" my ass!), and if anything its has been shown Star Wars in other peoples hands have at times turned out ranging from still bad to amazing.
So really what is so nerdy about the logic of a franchise that still has potential to kick-ass (considering how interesting the universe) being in some other person or companies more capable hands?

Who will not want to play a Jedi Knight or Bad Jedi Knight in this?

While the era sounds interesting, there are more and more fans who would like to play rebellion era (within a few years of BOY) then the 3 crap movie era. When are we going to get some stormtrooper, TIE fighter, smuggler goodness?
