I wondered what the "next gen" lightsaber would look like.

Edit- Her name is Maris Brood.


Shaak Ti


Juno Eclipse


General Kota

spoiler:
The potential Jedi that are hunted down in the game are Quinlan Vos, Ferus Olin, The Dark Woman, and Asajj Ventress. You will be able to hunt down Shaak Ti in the game. Most of the Jedi being hunted down are rumored to be from the EU.

Heh-heh-heh. I can hardly wait to read Prime's ruminations on this new development.

*Sigh* Alas the vicious rumors of no PC support for this game appear to be true.

Ah, tonfa lightsabres.

It seems the developers sat around asking each other "what would be the best way of making a lightsabre EVEN MORE hazardous to the jedi who is using it?"...

Anyway, nuts to this game, and to all games that are not released immediately on the PC. The PC may be a dying gaming market, but I'll never leave my PC! NEVER!

Ooooh, a PS3...

that doesnt make any sense if shaak ti is in the game... she gets killed by general grievous in the deleted scenes on ROTS with obiwan and anakin watching.

The operative phrase being "deleted scenes" in that sentence. Since the scene didn't make it into the theatrical release we can't say that Shaak Ti really was killed by Grievous now, can we?

The whole thing is convoluted and f***ed. I don't really care about the storyline, I just want to play with the DMM and Euphoria tech.

Yea I thought about that too. Because in the deleted scenes in Ep. III it shows her getting owned by Grievous. So I wonder how its going to work around that.

Gah! You unloaded a wikipedia article on me and one with unsurprisingly little in the way of supporting authoritative sources to boot. I'm done for. The Star Wars databank article for Shaak Ti does indicate that it is believed she died in the Jedi Temple when Vader and the 501st attacked.

I dunno Nalukai. I guess you'll just have to play the game when it comes out to see what role Shaak Ti has in the game. Maybe she will appear as a Force ghost. Who knows?

There was a reason they deleted it, and this is it.

Shaak Ti dying in the Jedi Temple is just a rumor. Keyword: believed

I hope Lucasarts don't forget to concentrate on lightsaber combat too.

No mediocre lightsaber combat Lucasarts, I'm warning you!

Or, this game will be headed to the trash compactor, as the worst Jedi game yet.
A disappointment it will be!

Focus on Force powers only not; combat with lighsabers also.

I'm sure that many Jedi fans out there don't want to only use the powers of Force in combat, but also the lightsaber, especially with the great anticipation of seeing the Euphoria AI engine in action.
Well, with the anticipation I have.

I agree. I hope for a game (maybe not TFU) that's nearly entirely based around the "art" of lightsaber combat. Fluid animations, movie style and brand new stances and strikes. From epic saber locks to simply seeing the light of the saber flood and reflect off the environment as it ignites.

I want to see the greatest weapon of any movie, game, or book get the attention it deserves. Not to say that force powers or the storyline should be ignored, but let's face it, in the end we all just want to cut things in half with a blade made entirely out of energy.

Let's see the evolution of lightsaber combat in a game (and then bring that game to the PC as well).

I would gladly use all of these cool force powers a couple of times on whoever decided to release the game on those wimpy consoles and not the PC. I also feel bad for the Wii people out there; but snobbing us PC users over the single interesting Star Wars release since KotOR? That stinks.

Here are some tech demos showing off the game's engine and physics. They talk about digital molecular matter and Euphoria.

And here's a longer vid, but the quality is not as good..

Delayed to 2008? Already? It was less than a month ago that they said November 2007.

I guess you can look at this using the "glass half full" or "glass half empty" philosophy. I say this is a good sign that LucasArts wants to ensure this game's quality is great and is willing to deal with the egg on their collective faces now to extend the game's expected release date instead of rushing out a sub-par game to meet a deadline.

Not that I'll be playing this game if it doesn't come out for PC but that's just my two cents.

Yes, they started the game late 2005, there no way they can finish this kind of game in 2 years. The delay is for the good of the game. But what about the multimedia event? The whole thing is centered on this game.

Starwars.com has posted a Haden Blackman article about TFU's production stages. Seems like LucasArts want to give the fans a view into the making of TFU, similar to what Lucasfilm did with the movies. Haden does say they've hit "First Playable" with TFU.

Hmmm... Shaak Ti seems to have some rancor lovers in a crystaline planet...

I am not sure about Vos though, I mean with his ability(and his master's) to remain hidden even from the force, his underhand tactics, his great saber skills(with some vapaad even), his cortosis gauntlet, his willingless to call unpo the darkside to save his crew... and chances are he would be living happily with his old master Tholme the ninja jedi and maybe even Tholme's homegirl... I personally would avoid the whole Vos thing, he would be better in his own series.

As for Dar Woman, I though she is supposed to be Vader's target?

I would love to see the fight with ventress. That would be one nasty fight. Ferus Olin is also expacted.

Who is this Maris Brood girl?

OH, TO -VE SUN: You need to read the end of "Obsession" She got away.

And that kinda sucks, everyone gets away in the end: The Emperor, Boba Fett, Asaaj Ventress, etc...

Well, there is the final known fate of Durge and Ventress.

Think its compiled in one of the Clone Wars TPB, like what they do with the Stat Wars Republic stuff. Its volume 6 or 7, not sure.

I really need to get up to speed when it comes to SW comics, I've only read Dark Empire, which was ok, but I know there's much better stuff out there, I just don't really know where to begin...
