Role-Playing in RC?

Attention role-playing haters: don't read this.

That past, since so many RP in JA, I've always thought it might be cool to see what it would be like to role-play in Republic Commando.
Oftentimes online, it gets kinda dreary, just running around, killing and getting killed repeatedly over and over. What if we made it more interesting? Sending a spy into the enemy base, for example, or mounting an organized assault rather than just running around and shooting in a circle?
Role-playing would also allow for use of ranks and the such. That way, you could be a Private or Brigadier General, and give orders accordingly.

Any comments?

Well, I don't mean a text RP. I mean, role-playing while playing RC online.

Well considering RC is an FPS shooter, it's not exactly ideal for an RP element.
Also it's meant for you to just run around and shoot people, that's why it was made the way it is.

Yeah, but it could be made a lot more interesting if various role-playing elements were added.

By now, you've made it fairly obvious that you didn't read a single word of my first post. So, I shall quote it for you.

I'd be interested in an RPG for the game, as well as a sequel. I'm even into a text based RPG for RC.

I once created a Republic Commando Text-RPG, but it was written before I got the game so it's quite inaccurate. If enouhg people are interested, I'll start a new, more accurate one. The only problem is that about 3 people are actually Text-RP'ing right now.

Role Playing in RC Online would be fun, but people would need to get mods that allow you to play as Battle Droids and regular Clones, since it would get boring to ONLY have Commandos and Trandoshans.

Well, yeah, but if the mods were too much trouble, it would make RC more interesting to add a small degree of role-playing to it. I'm not implying an entire storyline kind of thing like you would do with ForceMod 3 in JA.

I like the idea a lot. Not a bad idea at all.

Too bad I've long since lost interest in RC because my idea was ground underfoot
