TFU 2 more of an RPG?
 
Would you guys want TFU 2 to have a deeper RPG type of experience? Something closer to KotoR than TFU 1.

SW01 04-02-2010 12:43 PM

Yes.

That's what I wanted with the first one. But somehow I doubt it'll happen.

SithJedi1 04-02-2010 01:02 PM

It needs more rpg elements but not too much.. We already have Kotor, why can't tfu just be tfu? I think too much rpg takes the magic out of the story.. Starkiller is a complex dude, now just imagine if all the players around the world have a different complex dude, that's just confusing. I want to see his personality claimed, wellwritten and not rushed and overmystical like the first one. Allthough the powers and saber moves can have some more RPG in them.. Somehow, the force wasn't totally unleashed for me the way I thought it'd be, I missed some powers and upgrades which I seriously hope they fix because this franchise has the possibility to grab a timeless fanbase like some other games LA has made before..

No. Because TFU is not meant to be a RPG.

I wouldn't want it to degenerate into JA in terms of main character blandness.

LordOfTheFish 04-05-2010 03:51 PM

No. I'd prefer it to be similiar to the original game. I don't think the story is deep enough anyway.

Jeff 04-05-2010 04:41 PM

Increased customization is always nice, but I definitely want the game to have action gameplay similar to the first one, except more fun.

Changing the game style would ruin it because you're taking away what attracted people to the game in the first place. Basically you still want to target the same audience.

Look what happened to the KOTOR series. This TOR game I think will ruin it because it went from RP to MMO and thus it is turning off a lot of its fan base because of it.

I disagree about the TOR comment because its not entirely a sequel to KOTOR but I get your point. If anything I think it will broaden it scope (unless it sucks which I do not think it will.) I think TFU 2 should stay an action game, but I do not want to have my enemies scale with me to make me feel like I am always at the same level as them (darn elite storm troopers.)

Agreed, doing otherwise would complete sabotage to the series.

Wrong example. A game can be a MMO and still be a RPG. As TOR is.

Darth Eclipse 04-07-2010 03:03 PM

I guess I agree that I don't want it to be too much of an RPG. But I think that there should be more force powers that you can choose whether or not to unlock.

Not that I want to turn this into a TOR discussion, but lets face it. Lots of people (including me) have been turned off by TOR because of what it has done to the KOTOR series. Purist (like myself) hate the changes. That's the point of not changing the game style for TFU. Lots of people who were attracted to the game will be turned off of it. That's all you should have gotten from me making the TOR example. I never said that there would others out there who would not like the change.

DarthSlinky 04-07-2010 11:50 PM

If they were going to make an RPG the would just make KOTOR III

I understand your point, but it's still the wrong example. TOR is still a RPG. It's not like changing a game like Jedi Knight, TFU, or Battlefront to RPG. These imply a complete change of gameplay, among other things. What differs TOR from KotOR III is being a MMO and a having to pay monthly fee. It's not a complete change of game style.

I'd like to see more content in it but nor really make it an rpg. It's more of a slasher and I'd rather see them focus on making that as goo as they can.

Ctrl Alt Del 04-17-2010 10:18 PM

I'd actually want it to look more like, you know, an action game?

Because, the way TFU is now (haven't bothered with any addons; screw graphical fireworks and no gameplay chages whatsoever) it's either an overdeveloped DMM tech display, a rather weak Euphoria showcase or just unsucessful at the game's proposition. Anyway, I think my time to complain about it is long gone now.

Not to stretch it too far and suggest devs turn it into something light years more complicated than what we understand as "TFU", maybe shaping it after the God of War series wouldn't be bad, gameplay-wise. It's simple, efficient and - would you look at that - fun.

HockeyGoalie35 04-18-2010 07:53 AM

well, i would want an RPG, but KOTOR had a lot more complicated storyline (they even had a comic book about it). I don't think that TFU2 will have enough of a story with good and bad outcomes......just what i think
