    Compared with the star wars games of late? Hard to do worse, and they're not exactly studios renowned at making bad games.

    I'm happy, very happy - 3 games developers I really like with an IP I love.

    Give me Dice with Battlefront or Battlefield Star Wars, Visceral with a nice atmospheric Star Wars action game and BioWare with a Mass Effect style Star Wars RPG and i'll be a happy.

    I was happy with the force unleashed games. I hope they make at least one more in that set of games.

    I'm not interested in Battlefront. I used to be a massive fan of Bioware, then they fell in with EA and everything eventually went down hill. DA2 / ME3 / TOR. I don't care who sings the praises of those games, as far as I'm concerned they're awful. ME3 for a lot more than just the 'endings' -- Bioware is dead.

    lol.
    Poor old Star Wars, Disney bought the rights to the films so they could milk it for all its worth and now EA will do the same with the games.

    I'm depressed now. Look, lets play our new star wars game...wait server is busy? I'll try back later...oh sweet I'm in...**** I got kicked and lost all my progress...well lets try again. Oh, I need to buy a DLC in order to play something that was already on game day launch...ok well that's nice. I'm gonna do download that on Steam...wait I can't...hum, ok. I'm just gonna go join some MP, oh the next game is already out and no one is playing it, well that's cool, I guess I will go buy it, $60, damn...alright here it goes...**** can't play with anyone as I need a map pack premium expansion...fine. Oh sweet look at that awesome lightsaber, $10 really? Oh, hey look at this, PirateBay has it without all this BS, still can't play it on Steam, but FU EA.

    Well sht...

    Now EA will try to "going back to the roots" of Battlefront by making it a micro transaction / DLC filled buggy mess (same excuse they used for C&C, "going back to the roots" they say, because Red Alert 1 was all about DLC and multiplayer only right?)

    Proven to be good? It's EA / Bioware. My soul burns everytime I read the combination, let alone consider future titles. Bleh..

    I think I'm amongst the few happy about this news lol.

    SW Battlefront made by DICE with frostbyte engine, SW vehicles, **** could be freaking EPIC. I even have faith left in Bioware that they could pull off good SW themed RPGs again if they wanted to (and would of course be let to do so by EA...). Besides, it has been a long time since the last good SW game came out, as somebody said before, it is hard to do worse.
