Should the Wookiees be in SWGB2?

Hi everyone. Just thinking about civs. As you should know, the list of civs in my template is as such
- Confederacy of Independant Systems
- Galactic Empire
- Galactic Republic
- Hutt Cartel
- Rebel Alliance
- Naboo Coalition
- Trade Federation
- Wookiees
with the Yyuzhan Vong being a bonus civ, only becoming available after completing the single-player campaigns on the hardest difficulty. They would then be available for multi-player and 'Conquer the Galaxy'.

What im wondering, is would you prefer
- Royal Naboo
- Gungans
with the Wookiees as a minor, unplayable civ

or

- Naboo (Royal Naboo + Gungans)
- Wookiees

The Naboo and Wookiees have laughable armies (if you're going by "canon"), I'd rather have the Yuuzhan Vong then them.

I never got why Naboo had the best Air (the stats and bonus), when in the movies, they were weak aircrafts.

Well, their aircrafts weren't weak, just heavily outnumbered and unable to pierce a Droid Control Ship's shields...

I don't know know I'd rther have all of them, Naboo, Gungan and Wookiee.

Phreak - the YV would be in regardless of the outcome of this poll.

luke - well, that would be good, but im trying to keep it down to 8 civs plus one bonus.

Compa - they would be anyway, either as a civ by themselves or as a joint-civ with the Royal Naboo (which i prefer)

Why are the wookies so popular anyway? Ok, Chewie is quite charismatic (a modifier of about +5, DnD terms) but he's the only wookie (apart from the senetors in the prequels) we see in the movie. I'd get them out, and keep the gungans.

Well if I had to choose between those two options I'd prefer to have the Naboo and the Gungans as separate and leave the Wookiees out. However, I'd much prefer to have all three (Wookiees, Naboo and Gungans) and drop the Hutt Cartel. I've said it before and I'll say it again, you won't see the Hutt Cartel on a battleground. Their wars are waged in secret through underhanded means, not with two armies lined up on opposite sides of a grassy plain.

Vostok - and as i've said before, Jabba and his minions play an important part in the SW saga, and i think it's important to have a civ that represents Tatooine and the underworld. As compared to SWGB, this civ would also add more variety, both in terms of gameplay and visuals.

As for now, i've decided to keep the Wookiees. However, if more people come online and vote to have the Wookiees removed, then i will re-visit the decision.

To replace them with a more 'important' civ. Mainly because, at the moment, the Wookiees really arent that important in Galactic matters, and we've only seen Chewy and a few Wookiees senators.

F'n ponderous...

You guys are all f***ing high.
You talk about removing wookiees due to lack of canon items.
The Vong are ENTIRELY EU! They won't be in the next game! Get over it!

I pardon your ignorance because most of you are too young to realize no one knows who the hell they are, and that they aren't marketable because of that.

Then Windu claims a victory in his poll... when EIGHT people voted! What a character. I wonder what the name of his little world is. Because it sure as hell isn't this one. I swear I think the kid lives in his room and never goes outside his door. No clue. No grasp of reality.

pbguy - i'd suggest that you use some air freshner and some cleaning tools, because that it the biggest pile of manure i've seen here for a while.

I have never suggested that the Wookiees be replaced with the Yuuzhan Vong (is that right?). What i WAS asking was wether the Wookiees should be replaced with another civ that had more screen time than they did, the Mon Calamari would be one candidate. However, as no-one came up with any other alternatives, i have decided to keep the Wookiees.

I'll probably never know how you come to these incorrect, loony ideas about what i say, but i would ask that you actually read and try to understand posts before you respond and make a fool of yourself.

You have a very strange thought process. It skips a few steps pretty often.

First of all, give up on the Vong. It ain't gonna happen. I will personally buy your next Star Wars RTS if they're in it. You can quote me on that. It will never happen.

Oh yeah... the mon Cal had SOOOOO much more 'screen time.' How many movies were they in? And how many of them were in them? You might want to re-think that theory.

You say it, I just laugh at it and make fun of it and point out how you're wrong. Me a fool? Isn't that the pot calling the kettle black... And hey, I like your posts. If for nothing more than a good laugh and to feel very fortunate that I'm not you.

We only saw a handful of Mon Calamari in one movie while we see Chewie all the time.

Wookiees will be a part of Ep3, it has been confirmed that they'll be in it. They'll get more screen time then the Mon Calamari.

Wookiees already have more screentime than Mon Calamari, I have no idea what Windu is on about.

Episode I: Wookiees - Yes, Mon Calamari - No
Episode II: Wookiees - No, Mon Calamari - No
Episode IV: Wookiees - Yes, Mon Calamari - No
Episode V: Wookiees - Yes, Mon Calamari - No
Episode VI: Wookiees - Yes, Mon Calamari - Yes

Just because there are a number of Mon Calamari in half of Return of the Jedi doesn't make up for the fact that Chewbacca is a main character who features the whole way through three movies.

And going on what pbguy said - I will personally buy everyone on this forum a copy of the next Star Wars RTS if it features the Yuuzhan Vong as a civ, that's how confident I am they won't be there.

pbguy - why oh why do you never listen. I have said twice now on this thread that I NEVER INTENDED TO REPLACE THE WOOKIEES WITH THE VONG - get it through your think skull!

luke - my point is that we see a lof more of the Mon Cal's than we do Wookiees. The grand total so far is about 3 or 4 Wookiees compared to many, many Mon Cal plus their Cruisers. They are a lot more prominant as a race than the Wookiees are, even though we see Chewie more.

That is such an incorrect statement. You walk up to your average Joe Nobody and ask him to name a Wookiee, there is a fair chance he will say Chewbacca. Go up to him and ask him to name a Mon Calamari and he might refer you to the squid rings he had for lunch.

Chewbacca is such a popular and prominant character, so much so they felt it necessary to include Wookiee senators in Episode I and the character of Chewbacca in Episode III. Explain how a race whose name isn't even mentioned throughout the entire saga is more prominant than that.

If I need to go to external sources, name a single piece of pop culture that includes the words Mon Calamari. Off the top of my head I'd include The Simpsons, The Bloodhound Gang, South Park, and View Askew movies that have on more than one occaision mentioned Wookiees. The only thing I can remotely think of relating to Mon Calamari is that in the South Park movie, the guy giving the war briefing has a voice similar to Admiral Ackbar, but that's a stretch and any non-Star Wars fan would not get the reference.

So I ask you once again Windu to explain your bizarre logic.

Vostok - you missed the point i was trying to make. Sure, the Wookiees due to Chewbacca are more prominent BUT we see more of the Mon Calamari civilisation. I'm not suggesting they should be a seperate civ in SWGB2 (i have them as part of the Rebels), just as an example of a possible replacement.
