THE JEDI DIFFERENCE OR USE THE FORCE, GRUNT!

What's a Star Wars game without Jedi Knights? Right, boring. Luckily, Battlefront II provides several ways for you to acquire your own midi-clorianated warrior:
In single player the process of unlocking a Jedi follows the basic rules of the hero system: Achieve specific mission objectives-et voilą-you may find yourself with a Mace Windu or Ki-Adi-Mundi. In the more open-ended galactic conquest mode, you must must win battles to gain special bonuses, one of these being a Jedi. In instant action, you can just pick a Jedi and go lightsaber crazy.

In multiplayer action, the games host largely determines the use of Jedi characters, and there can be only one Jedi on the map per game at any givin time. Becoming a Jedi can be by random selection or dependent upon the number of kills a player has (the most prolific killer gets to be the Jedi). The host can also give one Jedi to each team or limit them to a specific side. In the case of the ladder, let's just say the Empire gets the Jedi. If the Rebellion can kill that Jedi, it will then be able to spawn one for itself-leaving the Empire Jedi-less.

The Jedi come equipped with a usual variety of Force powers: Push, Choke, Jump, Pull, Lightning, and lightsaber throw, as well as a few specific moves for certain Jedi. They can also block blaster fire. Force energy can be depleted, but it regenerates over time.

Hope you guys enjoy!

Yeah it was in this months issue of OPM. I'm not some little kid who gets his rocks off by lying on these forums. I'm a grown man, and have been on these forums since last year. I don't have a scanner, but I did take the time to type it out for you guys.

Thanks for the list! Great info on heroes.

Unfortunetly several maps were not listed under any heroes, most notably Kamino or Hoth, I wonder if this means that these maps have been cut from the final game, or if they just won't have heroes on that level. Also Kit Fisto was nowhere to be found in the list so I guess he is not in the game either.

Yeah I listed everything that was in the article. I am guessing they are not putting the old maps in BF II. Is there a confirmed list of all the maps in BF II? I wonder if this is all the maps, or will some maps not have hero's in it, like you said.

No-one Worry about Hoth and Kamino, i've seen a screenshot of echo base with luke skywalker as a rebel pilot with his blue lightsaber (his hair looks stupid).
And i've seen a screenshots of Jango Fett and Obi-wan on Kamino,
I think it's on the official site's screenshots.

The List must not be complete.

Yeah ive seen that screen, and that list plenty of times before, thats why I was wondering why it wasn't on the list. Maybe they didn't have a complete list of the planets when they made the list so they only listed the ones that were definetly in the game at the time.

Well yeah, of course, but does it make sense to put them in a game like Battlefront, where you play as the soldiers? Don't make me quote Mace from AotC... because what he says is exactly why Jedi SHOULD NOT BE PLAYABLE. There are a few maps, Geonosis, Felucia, Mygeeto, and Kashyyyk (NOT Yoda though, but there was Luminara Unduli on the ground), where Jedi did take a part in leading the clones into battle. But that doesn't mean that they need to be PLAYABLE. They should be AI-controlled.

Why can't they just supply a decent battlefield-type Star Wars game? As awesome as BF2 is, it's not Star Wars. Really, I'd have been so much happier if instead LA decided to team up with DICE and make SWBF2 actually an expansion pack for BF2, instead of using the same crappy engine, physics, etc. from SWBF.

The point of the battlefront games has always been to "play the SW battles any way you want". Whether or not Mace wants to fight, you can't deny the fact that Jedi *do* play an important role in the warfare of the prequel movies.

Why shouldn't they be playable? There were several Jedi who were just sent to Geonosis to serve as "soldiers". I do agree with you that "heros" are indeed overused (I think the playable Jedi should have been generic Jedi, not characters from the movies), but you can't completely scrap the Jedi idea for this.

In the prequels, Jedi fought in battles with the clones. They should also in a game based on the movies.

Perhaps you would have been happy, but others would have screamed that LA was just doing mods of other games (SWGB, for example) to make fast money.

I do agree with you on the expansion thing though. I know I will feel robbed after buying the game, but what can I say? I'm a fan.

Wrong, they were serving as commanders and generals, not grunts.

Well which would you rather have: a crappy $50 game, or an awesome $25 game? I'll choose the latter.

I gotta say that this game is going a wee bit overboard with heroes. Hopefully it won't hinder the development of the rest of the core game.

Seriously, you took the words right out of my mouth. Why do they insist on using the same crappy engine? Why must jedi be so predominant in this sort of game? What drugs are the devs taking here?

It still looks like it has the possibility of being fun, just the heroes, the engine and the numerous dev errors damage the game far too much. I know I sound like a Battlefront hater, but I'm not. I really do want to love the game and feel pleased with it, but as much as I try, I realise that at the end of the day, it's just another mediocre Star Wars game.

I don't see how this rips battlefield off... Its in 3rd person for a start!

But then those who play shooters before battlefield was released could say they ripped off all those games such as counter strike and wolfenstein, every1 is just comparing games to the best game even if that game was copied! but apparently that doesnt matter :-\

Battlefront 2 is copying Battlefront 1 if anything.. LOL!

Ha, I remember Wolfwnstein, I played that game all the time when it came out. I guess that makes me old then.

Quote:

Well they fought on the front lines in that battle, commanders and generals don't fight on the front line. And I don't remember one clone trooper on the ground either, they were in the gunships. It was just Jedi, and Padma, on the ground fighting. And they fought on the front lines with the troopers on Princess Amidala's planet. Naboo was it?

Well, the fight between playable, and non playable Jedi starts again. There really is no reason to worry about it, the host can turn them off it he wishes.



And Vader is in the Death Star, I missed that map when I was typing.

Actually, a good point was brought up there, the host can turn off Jedi, so that's ok.

Thinking actually, the majority of players of this game will be the usual fanboys (no offense to anyone in this forum with Jedi as their religion) and so the hosts will have Jedi on.

I suppose however that some hosts WILL turn them off, and instant action is always there, so all hope is not lost.

Exactly! Is a general still a general if he doesn't have any troops to command?

All hope is not lost??!!?

Actually, that's exactly the point of view I'm fighting against. We shouldn't see playable Jedi as a flaw, but as an additional feature. Lets not forget that if one entirely scraps the jedi/hero concept, battlefront 2 only brings space battles and new skins for the republic. Maps? Everybody can do maps (and some user-created maps are indeed superior to the official ones). That's not much for a full game, isn't it?

Bfront can be played on both modes

I personally don't consider Bfront as a rip-off. But many people do. Remember when bfront came out? How many topics have we had with a subject similar to "poor man's battlefield"?

Reviewers on various websites also compared Bfront to Bfield and used this to discredit Bfront. That obviously makes a very bad argumentation, but we can't deny the fact that people do compare these games, and that Bfront 1 didn't bring much to fight against the already-popular Bfield games.

The thing is, from a technical point of view, Bfront only appealed to SW fans. When you design a game, you want as many people as possible to enjoy it.

Bfront 2 brings space battles and Jedi. These two aspects are new to the genre (unless you count the Bfield SW mod; in that case, only the Jedi and heroes will make Bfront unique).

So what I'm saying is that having playable Jedi is a unique feature, and it should be considered as such.

That is an intresting point of view. Although you could argue that SWBF2 is more of an expansion than a full game (same engine anybody?), plus you get the extra character class.

Ultimately, you are right, and I will keep my judgement on Jedi personal in the future until I have played them myself. Then I will decide if they fit. Not now.

I totally agree with you, the people who only want to play as a grunt even don't have to turn them off, for example: You made 6 kills, and then you get the message: Do you want to play as Ki-Adi-Mundi?, and then you can chose Yes or No, just chose no, and don't complain about the fact that jedi are in the game, and in multiplayer, you can turn jedi off there too, so why are you people complaining?!

I thought I saw a nice screenshot on Lucasarts Star Wars Battlefront II website showing Darth Maul walking around Mos Espa or Mos Eisley. I hope they have the original Battlefront's maps in it also.

Not part of the Battle of Geonosis though.

That says it all.
Here's what the official site has to say:

"The Clone Wars were a trying time for the Jedi. They transformed from an order of peacekeepers to military commanders, serving as battlefield generals for the Republic's new clone army."

So no, my definition they are NOT actually IN the Grand Army.

I'm sorry, but I can't follow you here. The website says that they serve the army, as battlefield generals and you still think they're not in the army???

Exactly.

The official novel says they're in the army. The official website says they are the generals of the army.

Very well. Lets call it the Battle of the Geonosis Arena.

So everyone calls him general, he fights in the front lines with clones and has a full battalion under his command, but no, he's not a general. [/sarcasm]

This is not real life. This is Star Wars. And it goes perfectly well with palpatine's plot to "purify" the galaxie of all the Jedi. He used them as battlefield generals (to use what TK got from an official source) so that many of them would die. He killed the rest of them.

Both the jedi and the clones served the Republic. Ultimately, however, the Jedi were loyal to the Force itself, and not answerable to the Supreme Chancellor. Furthermore, if the Jedi were formally in the army, it seems to me that it would have been difficult to order clone troopers to execute someone who was technically in the army with them. Officially, Order 66 identified the Jedi as traitors, and frankly, identifying a hundreds of generals as traitors would be problematic in any real-life army. On the other hand, identifying hundreds of military advisors, outside the military, would possibly be less problematic. Just my two cents.

I fail to see why just because someone is serving as a general it makes them automatically an official member of the army. That's not how it works. I mean, that would be like saying that the Wookiees are also part of the Grand Army because they served the Republic in the Clone Wars. After all, they were barking out orders to the clones on the beach, so they clearly had command over them. And if they are in a position like that they must be in the army... right? Wrong.

And like boinga said, you can't just completely remove the chain of command of an army and then have everything proceed on as normal as it did. This is because the Jedi are just advisors, and when it comes down to it, who's really in charge is Palpatine and the Clone Commanders.

Also, go to the official site and check out the entries for the Jedi. It says their affiliation is the Jedi Order, not the Galactic Republic, which is what it says for the Clone Troopers.

So I return to my original point, which is that having Jedi playable in the Grand Army is incorrect.

yes the Jedi Order is a separate group from the Republic itself. They work independently from each other - the Jedi don't become involved in politics and the Republic only uses Jedi as diplomats and peacemakers.

on the topic of not having Jedi playable, i disagree. Wasting droids with a rifle is cool, but i feel that i just carry the team by taking out hundreds of rebels and taking cp's. Being rewarded by being able to step into the boots of a hero like Darth or Luke is great. - a good incentive.

but i can see where u are coming from with the idea that they should be AI controlled.


Some of the funniest moments in Star Wars:

Qui-Gon Jinn (gesturing to nudge Watto's mind): "I don't have anything else, but credits will do fine."
Watto: "No, they won't!"
Qui-Gon Jinn (nudging harder): "Credits will do fine."
Watto: "No, they won't! What, you think you're some kind of Jedi, waving your hand around like that? I'm a Toydarian! Mind tricks don't work on me, only money!"

Exile: "I believe they call that 'pulling a Bindo'"

Mace Windu:"This party's over!"

There's better ways or rewarding players than having them compete with their own team to get the Jedi. Really, that's not encouraging teamwork at all - it's encouraging players to whore the tanks to get more kills than everyone else, or even playing as crappy as possible (the server owner can even set it so the worst player gets the Jedi, like a handicap).

Look at BF2 for example: you can advance through ranks, unlock weapons, earn awards and medals, etc. and gain command over lower-ranking players through combat and teamwork. And this stuff is permanent; it doesn't just go away when the life bar is drained.

And personally, I think that in a military game, you should be rewarded like you would in the military. I mean, when was the last time a Clone Trooper was promoted by making him a Jedi?

I have to agree with you here. I think the system in Bfield 2 is quite simply awesome. It would surely improve Bfront if we could have something similar.

Like MachineCult said.

About the general debate we had :

For our own sanity, I'll leave it there. This is due to 2 things :

1. We could likely persue this arguments-throwing contest for days, because both you and I have deeply entrenched viewpoints and we stick to our ideas (which is good).
2. You have to admit that the quality of the debate deteriorated over the last posts. You stick to the website, I stick to the book; that's it.

That surely doesn't mean I accept your opinions as true, however. I just think we're going nowhere, and it's pointless to continue. Whatever I quote from the book, you'll just stick to your organizations thing from website.

To the thread starter : sorry for hijaking the topic I just couldn't stand by and watch TK whine again without doing anything

When was the last time you saw a normal clone soldier just hopping into a Gunship or a tank? In reality only pilots would be able to use them. The clone trooper doesn't become a Jedi, the Jedi just enters the battlefield.
I think the heroes are really more a reward for singleplayer not multiplayer, from what you said Jedi seem to go better in the singleplayer mode.
