Yep, I totally agree on that, now if only lucasarts would hire us.....

I sure hope that Lucas Arts thinks carefully about RC2.

There are people from LA on here. Hundreds of people have signed a petitions for a KotOR3, I doubt they would listen to 3 or 4 RC fans...

Don't underestimate the amount of Republic Commando fans... And the the book series continue as Imperial Commando so there's a chance they'll make a sequel.

We'll see. IC wont be released until August next year. Not to mention LA would need a few years to actually 'make' a game.

We can't be sure if there's any LucasArts employees here, and i'm sure that they're not just watching people moan about sequels.

Online petitions don't work. They never have, and I doubt they will for a very long time. All they do is allow people to vent.

And you're right - 3 or 4 people won't make a difference.

I severely doubt it. There's a reason why the game's content was licensed as a book series - because there's not much LucasArts wants to do with it. I can't say I blame them. For however many fans there are, the game didn't sell well enough for it to even warrant talk of a sequel.

That's why the books are there - to continue the story (in an albeit ham-fisted way).

They wouldn't be waiting for Traviss to finish anything - they don't work together. She writes stories based on the game, yes, but what she writes doesn't have any bearing on what LA could do if they even wanted to make a sequel.

It's exactly like George Lucas doesn't have to observe the canon of expanded universe elements if he makes a film, just like LA don't need to follow Traviss' stories if they make an RC2.

Nothing we say here can garuantee anything, it's all rather what if rather than it is or something similar to that. We don't know that any RC after this first one will be succesfull and LA wouldn't waste money to test that theory, Astor has the right idea on the amount of revenue produced with the first RC, it wasn't enough. Every idea presented here is obviously skeptical {well, everything everywhere for that matter}

RC2 is simply a nice goal, though. Karen Traviss is one of the many employees who follows LA's orders onto what Canon is, so whatever Canon Karen Traviss writes that has been cleared with the brass at LA is canon, and the whole system is quite confusing...

As I said earlier, everything on this subject is rather skeptical due to all the reasons listed in various posts by different people on this topic...

She doesn't work for them. Anything she writes is subject to change. She writes for Lucas Books - which is part of Lucas Licensing. Canon is subject to change - just because there's some books around doesn't matter.

And what she writes isn't approved by LucasArts. It's approved by Lucas Books. LucasArts is still in control of RC's IP though. She's 'borrowing' it, if you like, but she doesn't get final say in what happens.

She is under commission, though. That's the way all of the SW books are written, I mean the books from LB, the authors are offered commissions if they'd like to write the book. The system is very selective and chooses only the authors that show promise or have already shown their promise through other books based on other Science Fiction environments. You're right, final say is up to the guys at LA {or whatever, the guys who are in charge of this stuff}, who send the word down to LB, who give it to the commissioned author.

Hard Contact would be the first one vod then Triple Zero, True Colors, and Order 66 is the newest one.

Having read Order 66, I feel that I must strongly recommend against it. I can't speak for the others [in the series], but I've heard quite a bit of criticism for True Colors, as well.

ok this goes out to anyone talking about Order 66 or any of the RC books for that matter please PLEASE put a spoiler tag. But about the other books Padwan i think they are great but if you want feel free to get a second opinion.

I thought all of the books were excellent, but in a way, had the same moral premise of "rebellion" in it's wake. But I enjoyed it nonetheless!

Not really. It would've sucked if Traviss had come up with some stupid way to have them avoid it - which is impossible. Order 66 is hardwired into a Clone's brain- there's no way around it.

But, it seems she chooses what to follow about the SW universe. That's why Order 66 was a letdown, both in plot and style.

I'm not reading another book about the Clone wars again, unless it's by Zahn, Allston or Denning now.

Zahn is probably one of the best Star Wars authors ever! His Heir to the Empire series blew all previous books away!

Maybe the commandos could be jedi!!!!! JK

Don't know if this was mentioned but since it would probably be post order 66 (right?) could they have you as like rebel commandos, have you go through training and then put you through missions (like getting plans for the death star).
