Kinda saw the writing on the wall. I'm not gonna hate so much as bemoan the inevitable "online pass" for Battlefront 3 the unreliable EA servers which will eventually shut down leaving you $60 game all but worthless once EA decides it's not profitable to keep them open.

Though, I'm sure they'll make some good games, obviously a new KOTOR is to be expected.

EA has bioware under them, so I take this as a good thing honestly

'Come fight beside me,' I said to myself, and although it doesn't make sense, I held my own hand as a small sign of trust, and together I made my defense.

Didn't that start when Disney acquired ownership of the Star Wars brand?

Although, I don't get why Disney doesn't just get into the game publishing business, with all the rights that they own.

As a major Star Wars fan, I'd rather the whole series just explode at this point. Preferably like this

We're in the rebuilding phase, 'Card. Star Wars blew up in May of 1999. Then each subsequent 3 years after until 2005. We healed for a few years, now we're back up and running.

In Abrams I trust.

. . . I'm actually fine with this if it gets me a KotOR 3.

It's not like Lucas Arts was doing anything worthwhile with the IP.

Even with ea at the helm, it'll still be better than any star wars game since the first Force Unleashed.

They tried in recent years and after a string of failures obviously decided it wasn't worth the hassle. They had studios like Propaganda Games, Black Rock, Junction Point, etc.
