There seems to be some talk that Jedi Knight II is in the works (I'm not talking about Obi-Wan, either). I read it at Voodooextreme. Click <a href="http://www.voodooextreme.com/comments.taf?postid=11632">here</a> to read about it. I know this should go in the Games forum, but this is a great moment for all of Star Wars if it is true (plus I wanted someone to actaully see it...).

I thought MotS was Jedi Knight 2 (although I would like to see what happens if you continue the dark path).

What did you mean by that? I meant I would like to see what would happen if the whole game was played when you're dark. MotS made it so you have to be light.

I think LEC is a little confused:

1. Dark Forces
2. Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II
3. Jedi Knight II: Mysteries of the Sith

So, technically, this one would be Jedi Knight III: Dark Forces III.

What I really disliked about MotS was how badly LEC told the story.

They wanted a big name from the EU, so they plugged in Mara Jade with no regard to her character development. They wanted her master to turn to the Dark Side, so Kyle did so, then "caved" back to the Light at the end. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/mad.gif

They also dropped Jan Ors (*sniff*), and "reset" all of Kyle's development (both character and Force-wise) back to the novice level. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/rolleyes.gif

What irritates me is the idea that, after defeating Jerec and rejecting the near-absolute power of the Valley of the Jedi, Kyle would fall for some unspecified Sith powers!

The only ways MotS could be rationalized is if you barely stayed on the light side during JK. LEC should've hired someone who actually knows what "characters" are (and how to write them) and/or started with two completely new player characters.

IMHO, MotS is a pale shadow of JK that's only appreciable for the updated engine.

The dark side really got the shaft in JK. After you "fell" or whatever, you only got like ONE more cutscene...

If TFN is reporting it, there's a 99% chance that it's true. We can only hope. Although it concerns me that LA won't be involved that much.

That makes me more optimistic about it. Everybody knows LA would screw it up.

I didn't mean the title, I was talking series-wise.
LA did screw up the story in MOTS, and the cut scenes were crap, but the gameplay and graphics were great.

Starfighter is actually a lot of fun. It's better than Rogue Squadron, IMO, and I rather enjoyed spending a few hours on it this week. It's no X-Wing, but it's a lotta fun. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/eek.gif

Says a stupid Nintendo fanboy. I ****ing hate fanboys. I mean, c'mon... The entire concept of somebody being a fanboy of a company/system/whatever is ridiculous. Like, in Sceltor's last post, you can just TASTE the jealously(I don't care how you spell it)! He's all like, "Dammit Starfighter is coming out for PS2 only. PS2 SUCKS!" Even though he knows the N64 wouldn't handle a game like that. It's like, when somebody becomes a fanboy of something, they lose all common sense, and they get pissed off if anybody says anything negative about what they are a fanboy of. With the PS2 vs DC vs N64/GC vs XBOX war, fanboys from all four companies are talking crap all at once! It's the most amusing thing ever. Just check out any forum that's about PS2 or Nintendo/Sega/Sony/or whatever. There are ALWAYS people who go around saying "HAHA PS2 NOBODY CAN BUY IT! N64(replace with DC or XBOX or whatever the **** you want) 4EVER!"

So like, I have no idea whatsoever of what I'm saying.

Actually it was more like:
1.Dark Forces
2.Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II
3.Jedi Knight: Dark Forces III: Mysteries of the Sith (bit of a mouthful!)

So, it would be called either...
Jedi Knight II: Insert title of choice
or
Jedi Knight II: Dark Forces IV: Insert title of choice

Starfighter isn't comming to the PC. Battle For Naboo is in March. It's already gone gold.

Also now we have another RTS called Star Wars: Battlegrounds. Developed with the makers of Age Of Empires. E3 is looking pretty good this year!
