I like the idea of customizing your person. I think that the customizing should be for example, you choose a clone trooper, then you choose if you want episode 2 or 3 armor, then you choose what skills you want, then you say wether you are a pilot, heavy gunner, etc. So say you choose a heavy gunner, then you choose from a list of weapons and bombs and such that are ONLY for the heavy gunner. Then you choose what colors you want and where the colors go on your armor, and if you want you can choose a certain emblem or something. I dunno, just what I was thinking.
I'm not sure I like the idea of picking up other people's weapons. I like being able to get health and or ammo from some dead people though.
