Hmm....interesting. I'm eager to hear more about this...and eager to hear what "Machiavellian undercurrent as you spy, cajole," etc means. I hope we get to see more Galactic Map tools like probe droids or Interdictors in their full-fledged roles...

I think it would be awesome to have the ssd, but it would be nice to have the episodes 1-3 content not really so much for the story, but for the different units it had, but still i think this mod is going to be great

Hmmm... I was hoping for a Clone Wars or Post ROTJ stuff, but this sounds interesting. Nothing like running your own crime empire. Can't wait for more information.

Some of the best Star Wars games are completely new material (Knights of the Old Republic anyone?). And honestly, did anyone know who Grand Admiral Thrawn was before "Heir to the Empire" was written? Some people still don't know who he is. Are you really saying that anything new added to the mythology is automatically bad?

That said, many here are basing assumptions on a very short article with little actual information in it. Just because we are adding new material does not mean that some of the things you mentioned are not in the expansion - which is why I suggest that you wait until more detailed information is released before going off the deep end. As I said above, I really can't say anything more at this time, but I (or SageKing, or Delphi) will answer more questions as soon as the official announcement is made.


guys lets wait before we jump to conclusions eh?

Interesting...kinda takes on the Battle for Middle Earth create your own character aspect...hmmm...

Well...right now I have no idea what to think, but I do have to say I'm interested in knowing what exactly will be heading our way, so I can't wait for the details.

Interesting, but certainly not the direction I hoped EaW would go in. Having said that, it does sound interesting, but of course I'll hold off on forming an opinion of the x-pac until I know more.

I still think Empire At War would make for a great Microsoft or Electronic Arts game.
