Not sure if this is new or not but try Here (http://www.gamespot.com/ps2/action/starwarsbattlefront2/preview_6129902.html) Dagobah has been confirmed and it looks as if yoda will be a playable hero.

and I think this (http://www.gamesxtreme.net/pc/game/star-wars-battlefront-ii/interview-2234.shtml) interview is new.

Nothing really new, but the hunt mode sounds interesting. Stormtroopers versus Ewoks eh?

Yeah I read about Yoda/Degoba the other day, I can't believe their not pushing this like they did the first installment. Your right the hunting mode does sound interesting. I am just surprised in the lack of info since E3.

Try here (http://www.lucasarts.com/press/releases/102.html) (scroll down a little).

The pictures are small, but you can see what it looks like :)

I too think it looks awesome, better by far than the original.

The cover is magnificent, isn't it ?... At least, we can have a preview of some ships which will be available in SWBF II... (V-Wings, ARC-170, Droid Tri-fighter, etc...)

Anyone hear any new information on Star Wars Battlefront II? I can't believe no information. The official lucasarts website is so bad. You would think they would at least change the official site of the game to include information like what from Star Wars Battlefront I is coming back into Battlefront II like troopers, starships, vehicles, locations, etc.

By e-mail. I have some of the folk of Pandemic and LucasArts in my address book. I can also contact them through postal services but that just takes too long. ;)

I would like to know whether or not the reinforcement number at the top of the screen is changeable in the offline single player battles? I would like to be able to determine myself if I want a really short battle or long battle by the number of reinforcements. Maybe have that option in the single player options menu and I can decrease or increase the number in 50 or 100 increments.

I'm wondering what the developers will do when they bring in maps from the first game. How will they improve them? Will they be entirely new--as in a different location on the planet? Frankly, I'm not too thrilled about playing some of these again, so what will the appeal be? Thanks.

They will probably redo most of the popular and important maps by making them bigger, and improving graphics, the locations will probably be the same, or similar, but hopefully they will be redone in a way that is fun and takes advantage of the new objective based gameplay.

...to the Devs To Do list! Let's hope it plays out that way. Thanks.

Thats what it looks like, maybe to help balance certain maps.

that is what i thought but it weapons that it showed didn't look like it would be weapons for a Magna Guard.

ParanoidAndroid
09-04-2005, 04:41 PM
They probably changed his weapons to make it more balanced. They could be the sixth unit or maybe there sort of a secondary hero, like one player earns the right to be grievous but two runner ups can spawn as manga guards, could the same also go for emperor Palpatines guards?

Commander Obi-Wan
09-04-2005, 04:43 PM
that is a possiblity and that would be neat.

In fact, in the Expanded Universe, an IG-100 Droid (Also known as "Magna-Guard") can use an electro-staff (Of course !), but also a rocket-launcher or grenades...

Some new info about BF2 vehicles at Gamespy (http://ps2.gamespy.com/playstation-2/star-wars-battlefront-2/649845p1.html) looks like vehicles will have critical points, and some interesting bits about hijacking a vehicle. There are some new screens to.
