There are scenes in the main trailer which show a standard Rebel soldier on a Tatootine-like planet blasting in and around Tuscan raider huts. You see there sand people getting wasted. It makes me curious, which faction are the sand people with. Anyone else notice this? Its 2/3 of the way through it, right after it says "capture it".

Also if Luke said "If there is a bright center to the universe, you're on the planet that's farthest from..." in reference to Tatooine. In Episode 1 They mention several times that Tatooine is on the outer rim. For such an isolated planet which never really had a hand in the grand scheme of things (according to the films) why do game makers always have a tatooine level? Yeah its a place we can all recognize but how accurate is that. Why not make up a similar but different desert planet? Oh well.

Look for those sand people.

Sounds Risky

Because if they didn't put tatooine in then there would be a pretty big uproar from the fans. Maybe not from you or me but from a lot of others.

The Tusken Raiders are not a playable class. They're NPCs on a Tatooine map, like Ewoks on Endor.

Why would you even want to fight them in enourmous groups?

About the 'why tatooine?' issue. I'm a star wars fan so I like tatooine in a star wars game. What about you?

About the Tatooine issue, well I'm a fan too and have been for 27 years. I just found it interesting that a planet which was supposed to be on the ass end of space, a place where until chasing Leia the Empire didn't have much to with, a place Obi-Wan saw fit to hide himself and Luke on, would ultimately get so much attention thanks to the lesser imaginative game makers.
I love the saga but reflect on the remarks made in the movies. Developers could satisfy fans with a Tatooine-like planet without it being Tatooine. With the vastness of the Star Wars galaxy why must we always see the same planets?

I can answer my own question. Its for the same reason why people like all the MOH/CoD games or all the Terminator movies or all the Doom clone games. They like the first and want more but more of the exact same each time. Deviate too much and you've lost a fan.

There's be 25+ years of Star Wars books and media, it might be cool to use some of those areas only described in books or briefly mentioned in film. Yeah, I know the impact isn't as good because we never got the visuals for those places and people wouldn't recognize them but it gives the developers more of an artistic license.

tuscan raiders are the neutral class on tatooine so they attack both rebels and imperials.I also read if you kill all the tuskens you can take over there camp!

I hope they include Jabba's Palace and his goons into the game. That would be an awesome game. Jabba and his gang taking a neutral stance and fight both empire and rebels.

The tatooine level may very well be after the events of ANH, when the empire did know Tatooine.

I don't care so much about it anyway, the planet I'm really looking for is Hoth.

lets not fool ourselves. Like, Kamino is not of episode 3, it is of episode 2. Not everything is going to be according to the movies. Tatooine, for a backwater planet, sure gets alot of attention, so they put it in the movies. I'm glad they did, I like tatooine. I like the number of choices of planets you can play.

Maybe if you took Jabba's palace you would have a rancor fight on your side. That would be awesome.

Yes its nice to "play" the movies, but they should put some non movie planets like mannan, kessel, corellia, Nar Shadda, and Koribon.

I don't mind there are no new planets in the game. Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds was made up for the largest part, most vehicles didn't exist in the movies at all. I didn't like that at all.

Some planets from the books would be nice, but if he have to choose ten, then I would go for the movie planets. There you can fight out the epic Star Wars battles for yourself, so the Star Wars feeling is best there.
