As a lifelong Star Wars fan, is it just me that's actually burn-out on Star Wars games now? I grew up playing the Dark Forces on the MAC, then the KOTOR RPGs which were awesome and kept the excitement of the universe alive in me.

But since then.... a hell of a lot of crap, specifically SW:KOTOR, which had me jump with a massive portion of my WoW guild, only for us all to be bitterly disappointed a few months after launch. SW has started to taste a bit sour for me....but maybe DICE can sweeten it? Hmmm...we'll see.

If they reintroduce the space battles, I'll be happy Grin. Loved Battlefront 2 and I'm so glad a skilled FPS development team has gotten their hands on the IP, and that they're passionate! Also glad that I'll be able to buy an FPS from DICE that isn't a modern era "blue.... And ORANGE!" shooter (although it's better than a brown shooter).

If they can make it like Battlefield 1943 colour style (I.E bright and vibrant) they're onto a winner visually Smile in my eyes.

As much as I want this to be a third person shooter as well as an FPS, I doubt Dice will stray from its heavy FPS centred games, meaning we have Battlefield in Space.

Which isn't bad, but maybe not the best i had hoped.

Still looking forward to this game a lot, and especially to see more.

no worries, mate! They have confirmed third person and first person! You can switch it similarly to BF2.
