Need opinions on story for SP series
First off, let me say there aren't any levels being built yet, so if you're expecting screenshots, hit the back button.
The first level in the series takes place 2 months before the Battle of Endor.
I'll list the characters that will appear or play some role in the series:
Thanatos - Young Dark Jedi personally trained by Lord Vader. He believes that the Rebels butchered his family when he was a boy, and thus hates the Alliance with a passion.
Lord Vader - Do I have to elaborate?
Emperor Palpatine - Ditto.
Director Alek Mirras - The Empire's top scientist. In charge of an ultra secret project. A project even more secret than the second Death Star. I'll elaborate later.
That's all the major players. Here's the story summary for each level.
Level 1 : "Trial by Fire"- Alek's first mission as a Dark Jedi for the Empire. The Empire has recently become aware of a large Rebel training facility on the planet [insert name]. Normally, the Empire would launch a full scale assault, similar to the assault on Hoth. However, the Empire has been strapped for men and resources due to the construction of the second Death Star and the hunt for the traitor Admiral Zaarin. Thus, you're being sent in covertly to disable any planetary shields, ion cannons, and communications systems. Once completed he is to send a message signaling two ISDs to drop out of hyperspace and commence an orbital bombardment on the facility, reducing it to rubble.
Well, the mission is pretty straightforward. You get to the reactor, shut down all the required systems, and send the signal. Now, you're supposed to get 3 minutes to get out of there before the bombing starts. Well, you don't. So it becomes a mad dash to find a suitable mean of escape. You find an X-Wing and escape. You get into space and tell the ISDs who you are. One of them says they'll tractor you in. It starts pulling you in, and then...BOOM BOOM BOOM! They start shooting at you. So you take out the tractor beams with torpedoes, and after avoiding a crapload of laser fire, you escape into hyperspace.
I'll post the plot for the next level later, but how does it sound so far?
