It's amazing with how bad they screwed up SWTOR. 
No-one ever listens to Zathras. Quite mad, they say. It is good that Zathras does not mind. He's even grown to like it. Oh yes. -Zathras

Re: EA Gets Exclusive Star Wars VG Rights
Yeah, probably a result of the negociations for acquiring LA in the first place as the first article points out.

We'll see how it goes. So far EA hasn't ruined anything I care about, and they can't be less productive than LA was.

That's not necessarily such a bad move from Disney, especially given what didn't happen on the Marvel video game front.

Who knows, if Disney starts to wake up to the video game market, we might see good Marvel-based games happen yet in the future.

People who actually still look at TOR tell me that in the last three months there's been more cause for hope in the game than there was since launch, so I'm inclined to cut EA some slack.

Maybe not too bad.

A Jedi Knight in the style of Mass Effect? Kyle with Luke/Han/Leia/Lando/Chawbacca and co in a Grp?
Battlefront in the Frostbite 3 Engine. DICE make Singleplayer in Battlefield 4. Maybe then a Campaign in Battlefront 3?
Empire at War 2 again with Frostbite 3
Maybe a new X-Wing ?
1313 from the Dead Space Studio?

looking forward...

There's a snowball's chance in hell but one can only hope. Whatever they do I just hope that it wont be about a rehash of the movies yet again.

Indeed.  The best things to come out of Star Wars have virtually nothing to do with the movies (Kotor, Jedi Knight, etc).

Star Wars Republic Commando.

It was the last good thing Lucasart did. They were dead for all intents and purposes afterwards but hell they "departed" with a masterpiece.

Yeah, Battlefield 3 is a lot like Battlefront 1 & 2: No working tools for coordination (like a useful map, a commander or working comroses), so a Battlefront by Dice would be at least as good as the old ones.
Any they sucked compared to Battlefield 2 or Battlefield 2142 ;)

is apprehensive. Not sure this will go well, generally distrust EA, but will wait and see I think...

Re: EA Gets Exclusive Star Wars VG Rights
The problem is, EA is going the Activision route, especially with their FPSes and their railroaded story, blinding bloom and shades-of-grey-and-brown colour palette, achievement/unlock based multiplayer and incremental bits of DLC that cost twenty bucks a pop. Look at Battlefield 3 compared to the older Battlefield games. BF3.5 (sorry, BF4) is gonna be even worse. This is going to hit Star Wars and people will eat it right up even though the quality has markedly dropped in an attempt to make more money.

Could you imagine an X-Wing game with perks, unlocks, paint jobs and weapon attachments? "OMG I just prestiged my KX-9 now I can fire purple laser bolts! They match the pony art on my X-Wing's nose! Now I have to just level up my Ls10.4s so they make a WUBWUB sound when firing!"
In the arena of logic, I fight unarmed.

Could someone tell me how any of what was said right there is actually a bad thing? :P

I've my reservations about EA, but I won't be one to dismiss something before it happens

Re: EA Gets Exclusive Star Wars VG Rights
At least the good news part is that they have both the rights of Star Wars and Battlefield, so they better don't screw up Star Wars: Battlefront 3

Star Wars Rebellion 2. Anything but Empire at War again please, it was a decent enough game. But just lacked so much that Rebellion had layed down.

Re: EA Gets Exclusive Star Wars VG Rights
Rebellion was a pretty damn good game. I'd kill for an updated version that has more in-depth fleet combat.
