Post Mind Tricks..............

SO.........I know this is only one of the forcepowers but I'd really like to see some different Mind triks u could use.For example it would be cool if u could control a stormie. You could force him to let you go [ like in films ;- ] or you could force him to kill other storms.And the stronger the stormie is the harder it is to control him.You couldn't control a dark jedi or Sith.Your thoughts....?

Yea that would be cool. And the more complecated the mind trick i.e. controlling a storm trooper to kill others the more force it uses. That would rule. Things like this would make the game much more playable and enjoyable.

Light Jedi don't like manipulating people using the Force. It is "wrong" (or so I've heard). Dark Jedi on the other hand...

Anyway, if I remember correctly, wasn't there something about mind tricks in a couple of the previews. I think they said you could distract stormtroopers (make them look the other way) and get people to tell you secrets and stuff.

Yea..but when they went to use it it wouldnt work. I thought that bit was quite funny, and showed us how early in development the game really was. I dont think they mentioned stuff like our suggestions though, actually turning stormies on their own people. Ravens idea was more like a persuasion to make them think you werent there.

That would ROCK, and it would be a much cooler use of Jedi Mind tricks than simple invisibility. Also... Making NPCs look the other way would be cool for anyone who wants to go through the game using more of a thief-esque stealth style. (might also be a cool trick for MP, distracting someone during a saber battle by forcing their heads to turn, lol)

well, you could maybe force a non-jedi to turn their head, but i doubt a Jedi can persuade another Jedi. plus, you can only persuade those with weak minds, or so ben kenobi said...

Yea, jabba said it to. Because he wasnt week minded he couldnt be effected. Just like watto couldnt in Ep1. So people like jedi could not be effected. Stormies could though and that would be cool

This is a great idea, and like Rave stated, would prove valuable for the replay factor...Also, it would create a openended approach to accomlishing missions differently( hence the replay value) and would create opportunity for Rave to implement challenging puzzles, were you may HAVE to use this to progress through areas of the game....just a thought

i dont think this would work in MP at all
kinda like the force slow-down speed in MotS, it just wouldnt be compatible with the gameplay...would make a nice MP hack though

its amazing a big fat slob can resist Mind tricks, but the most harshly trained, strickly regemented Army personnel have weak, easily distractable minds... silly huh..
