Return is probably the best, but it will take a long time to forget when I saw the Deceived trailer through a live stream of EA's press conference at E3. Pure fanboy service. So I'll vote for it.

I really like Hope just cause it shows a non-Force using Trooper take on a Sith in head-to-head combat... but yeah, Return is pretty damn epic.

EDIT: Also, hope you don't mind but I added the trailers to your post, MrObiWan.

Where is all of the above option?

Went with Hope, the thermal detanator surprise for Malgus is priceless.

I didn't vote because, IMO, these Trailers are better than anything in Star Wars since 2005, and they all deserve a pedestal.

Ven Zallow is badass, Satele Shan is Badass, Kao Cen Darach is badass, Lord Vindican is badass, Malgus is beginning to piss me off but still badass, The Smuggler is cool, his ship is cooler.

The Trooper armor is still a MASSIVE mistake in my opinion, and truly alters the feel of the trailer and game, which is why Hope is by far my least favorite of the three trailers, but still better than any Clone Wars episode.

Favorite Duelist= Kao Cen Darach (Zabrak)
Favorite scene= Crashed troop carrier unveils Sith strike-force
Favorite Death= Ven Zallow (I shed a tear)
Favorite Entrance= Satele Shans Slow-mo-floor-punch-force-push-gtfo-move.
Favorite ship= Smuggler's XS stock light freighter
Favorite backdrop/Render= The Jedi Temple fly by in Deceived is awe-inspiring.

Socratic irony

I fully understand the in-universe, marketing, continuity, getting the casual/kid crowd involved explanations. I just think they should of designed the trooper armor in a way that didn't resemble Clone troopers in any way (Other than the fact it was armor of course) you could advertise 'Hope' as a Clone Wars CGI short, and no one would question it.

This is Just my opinion, I'm sure some Star Wars fans think that the Clone Wars is the Pinnacle of the franchise, and are excited they can emulate commander red-shirt.

I actually like the Clones in the Prequel trilogy, I love all the films unconditionally, Something about the TV show has just tarnished them IMO.

The same can be said about the Millennium Falcon rip-off, among many other ships/technology.

Not really because the falcon is cool, and they're have always been Corellion freighters in this era

I'm not arguing the coolness of the Falcon, only that the ships designs are rip-offs the same way the trooper armor is.

How is a resemblance to the Clone Trooper armour, which is just a reworking of the Stormtrooper armour to begin with targeting kids who watch The Clone Wars? XD I don't understand but whatever...

If your the real Lynk, and not an impostor, I'd assume that is not beyond your understanding :)

I "Hope" they create a new trailer, trailer's of TOR must "Return"! Can't think of a sentence for deceived. :p

@ adamqd: Yeah...... you're still gonna have to explain this to me.

@ MrObiWan: The three big cinematic trailers released so far are used when you start that game and choose which faction you want to play as for the first time... so no, no more trailers coming out for TOR that aren't gameplay related.

Of course, when the expansions for the game comes out I'm sure those may have a cinematic clip to use as a trailer or two...

@ adamqd: I'm not, you're just being paranoid.

TOR is pretty far removed from anything to do with the various Clone Wars media that has been coming out recently from Lucas and friends and I genuinely don't understand how a few markings on the Republic Troopers armour suddenly screams "we're making this game for the children who watch TCW CG series"...

I didn't say that, I said they used the Armor to make it recognizable to Clone Wars fans (be they Kids or Adults) who maybe dont have as much investment in the franchise as a whole. I'd rather they had built a new armor style from the ground up.

I thought it was to make it more recognizable to Star Wars fans (stormtroopers and clone troopers?).

This.


As for the armour styles, there are lot of different styles that the Trooper has depending on what type of armour you pick up during the game... I'm playing as a Trooper Vanguard so I've already looked through some of what they have and their is a good variety. Some look familiar and have the style of a classic stormtrooper/snow trooper/scout trooper all the way to the ARC trooper variant clone troopers... and then there are trooper armour which look nothing like what the movies or other media have shown us.

As for the trailer itself, it's just as Alexrd said, they just went for a simple look that was recognisable to Star Wars fans in general which combined aspects of the storm and clone troopers as well as adding a little bit of flare not seen in either.

Your saying exactly what I said, only, its reasoning is good for you, and bad for me hehe :) we must agree to disagree.

I suppose they could've made the troopers look more like Spartans from Halo or Helghast from Killzone :p

Hope's my favorite. Seeing the trooper about to take out a Sith lord with a thermal detonator with that little smile on his face was epic. Not to mention I'm in love with Kevin Michael Richardson's voice (and Rafael Sbarge's of course).

Yea, Hope was pretty damn epic, it was awesome when Satele was stabbed on the hand from Malgus's lightsaber and blocked it through the force.

For "Return", does anybody know the name of the Zabrak Jedi master? I know it starts with a K, at least I think so.

I definitely love me some "Return". Hope as second favorite. And it works as giving some hindsight to "Hope". Jace goes balls-out after Malgus the second he sees him as revenge for Malgus' presence and actions during the fall of Korriban in "Return".

I love the Setele Shan + Jace Malcom tag team combo against Malgus was so awesome. That's the way they should have shown the Clones and Jedi fighting together in the prequel movies... kind of did in TCW but not as awesomely...

I think deceived for me. Talking about an entrance. And maybe it was because it was the first one out, but to me it is what Star Wars is all about.

Deceived hands down.

As for the style thing, look at the differences between the style of K1 and TSL versus TOR. The originals had the Star Wars flavour but were distinct enough to separate them from the movies. TOR, whether it was an LA mandate or an EA/Bioware decision, essentially just transplants designs straight from the movies with no regard to canon or logic. The whole "technology plateaued" argument is ridiculous. It's just a shameless attempt to increase subscriber numbers. While I don't begrudge them making money, they could do it without affecting the franchise and luring in fans under false pretenses.

So you have a problem with the technology plateau? But that starts another argument entirely I guess if we go down that road.
