I never said that UT2004 was the pinacle, but the details on some of the maps do put the redering quality of the SWBF maps to shame. Details to rain drops,and dust falling is what I was talking about. And playing Onslaught mode, with vehicles and teams, the control and the physics really do make SWBF look it was made 4 years ago.
As for comparing to pinacle, FarCry details are setting High par. The detail in JKA also beats this game, with the skin details.
As for the detail of the AT-AT, Snowspeeders, and maps layout, I do like that part of the game. Some maps better than others(bespin and Hoth the best).
