I didn't see many posts related to this topic so I thought I'd start one ;) !

What is the feature in Galactic Battlegrounds that has you excited the most?
1) I think the Scenario editor sounds neat...

The thing I like about it is how Ensemble is making it...they did a greate job with the Age of Empires series. I think they are only second to Blizzard when it comes to RTS games. I hope Galactic Battlegrounds can capture some of the brilliance that Starcraft had...that game was and still is amazing. It's the perfect RTS in my opinion and I still play it with my friends regularly! I hope GB can follow in it's footsteps.

I'm excited simply by the fact that it is a SW RTS that is being done right. Loved AoK, I'll probably like this a lot.

All I got to say is "WOOKIE RUSH!!!!"

Anyway, Battlegrounds looks cool.

the feature that i cant wait for is being able to play as 6 different factions/species/whatever you want to call them. ive been waiting for a SW RTS like this one for a long, long time. now, i aint dissing Rebellion and FC, but hey, the team that put out one of the few non-SW games that i bought and played for countless hours, is making a SW RTS, im in heaven.

also, one thing that i dont understand, is all these people bashing Battleground before they get a chance to play it, or even see it in action. its going to be a great game, they'll catch on.

I wasn't too fond of the scenerio editor for the age of empires series.

I loved playing the game, however I hope the units would be more "unique" to each civ... sorta like StarCraft. I played a lot of Age2, but it replay value died out after a while because there is only one special unit for each civ. The buildings looked different, but that isn't a big factor in my opinion.

Star Wars Battlegrounds is going to be a kick ass game, no questions asked. I, along with most of the others on this post, love Age of Empires II, and it's expansion, as well as the Great StarCraft series. This game looks like it might be a combination, and that, my friends, would be magical :D

What i think is...

1. They can have NJO as an expansion set or update, it will ne very fun to play as NR v.s YV.

2. The Empire can have a "space-active" weapon like World Devastater, Krytop virus, Planetary Bombermen, may be even a Death Star or Something...and Rebel have a Ion Canon to defend them.

These days Iv been playing AoK, Its very good, just a bit difficult
Jackal, I think in an interview someone said that the units will be different mainly in appearance :(
Anyway, Itll probbly be a great game. Im looking forward to the wookie campaign

what do you mean have to buy the game then pay monthly charges? what game are we talkin about? I do NOT want to pay monthly charges on any game, cause that would suck A.

I guess I'd buy the game anyway :D
