just could be so!
It has the star we have craved over for years in it!
Could it finally bring a belivable SW universe to life? and actually put the Wars back in Star wars?

That's the million-dollar question, friend.

It's all about balance. That will tip the scales one way or the other with a game as large-scale as this.

we have wanted big battles we have wanted to be in them and let us hope this brings it
many games have promised but failed to deliver

we shall see. SW games have never covered this ground from this angle. To be a ordinary soldier in the epic battles was overlooked for so long. So many aspects to the SW universe its hard to fit it all in cohesively. We've had flight sims, played as jedi, been battle planners and role-played but to fight as teams and not in a deathmatch mode will be great. Not to mention th fact that they're covering all the films.

I think the recipe for the ulitmate Star Wars game would be a tablespoon of "Xwing Alliance" (did anyone play that here? It was the best of the great flight sims and being able to easily make your own battles was perfect for lan parties). A cup of Jedi Knight 1-3 (the whole Dark Forces saga was fun but the manuevers in Jedi Academy are awesome). A pinch of SW Galaxies. Finally 1 and 1/3 cup of Battlefront.

To have all that flexibilty and be able to play as jedi, clonetrooper, ewok, wookie, TIE pilot and so would be great. Also if they let you choose weapn load outs for your player would be nice too. For instance if you're a stormtrooper you have the choices of 1 of the following primary weapons, Blaster rifle, rocket launcher or sniper rifle. Each character would have 3 appropriate choices or slight variations. A wookie smuggler as an engineer or a medic or a saboteur. Understand?

I know I'm dreaming about all that.

Well, maybe a giant comet will make a collision with earth just after the game comes in stores, wiping out all human civilsation, wich makes bf the last star wars game ever! :)

Of course a better star wars game could be made, but this probably is the best one made so far, so lets not talk about futur games, until this one is in stores.

Faith is good, fellas, but I think we'd better reserve our judgement until the game is released.

The last thing we want on September 19th is people whining on these forums about how disappointed they are -- like what happened to Galaxies.

Is Jedi Knight: Dark Forces2 from the Jedi Knight or Dark Forses series? :p

The only way it is the Ultimate Star Wars game for me is if every Star Wars vehicle, starship, and troopers are included in the game. That would include B-wings, A-wings, Imperial Lander, Imperial Lamdba Class Shuttle, Rebel Medium Transport, Tie Advanced, Tie Interceptor, Tie Bomber, Tie Fighter, X-wing, Y-wing, Snowspeeder, etc.

The problem with the SWG forums was they turned to crap, because of the splitting on the Gen Board into GAT and General SW

That's where all the cool guys from the GAT went, especially after the creation of nuGAT (when the game launched)

16 v 16 isn't huge, but 16v 16 + 48 bots + third-party AI = pretty darn big.

Third party AI and that's it! No bots in Multiplayer, it ruins it!

All I care about is me and my computer troopers taken on other computer players. I personally think it is fun to play against the computer just change the difficulty level if you get bored with easy level.

For the Xbox, you will need Xbox Live to play, and for the PlayStation 2, you will need a PlayStation 2 Network Adapter. For the PC, a broadband Internet connection is required along with an ISP. A broadband Internet connection is required for all platforms. From the official FAQ

Well, there isn't anything on the official site, but Game Informer magazine says that Battlefront's online games will support up to 48 bots.
