r0b, I agree with you completely when you state that the Clone Wars have amazing gaming potential. They do.. and I dont believe it has been fully realised.
Though playing a Jedi in the Clone Wars at the moment would be nothing unlike the Jedi Knight series. JK tackled Jedihood very well. Unless the gameplay was seriously rehashed, it would just be more of the same in a different environment.
At this point in time, I think the only relevant thing to do is an expansion / sequel when it comes to RC.
