Vision for BF3 - Battlefront: The Clone Wars

After watching the new CGI Clone Wars TV series, I think the new Battlefront should reflect it. With its slightly more cartoony graphics, development should be much quicker and a better game can be made.

Also, limiting the game to the Clone Wars makes more sense. The Galactic Civil War, while it just about works with space battles (even then, the Rebels deliberately avoided fleet action with the Empire until Endor, despite what you see in Empire at War), the Rebels and Imperials rarely fought land battles. The reason for both in the same, the Rebels were ridiculously outneumbered and thus fought mostly guerilla warfare.

The Clone Wars, however, is the opposite, featuring literally millions of Clones and droids. If anything, Battlefront 1 and 2 failed to get across the sheer numbers. There's a simple way to rectify this - squad-based combat - most troops will be accompanied by an AI squad.

Battlefront 3: Clone Wars Plan
