9 Ridiculous Star Wars Games EA Should and Shouldn’t Make

The Plain Ridiculous

Chewbacca’s Big Adventure (Phil Hornshaw)
Developer: BioWare

Set in the period between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, Chewbacca Von Wookiee finds himself fleeing Kashyyyk as the Galactic Empire rises on Coruscant. A known Jedi sympathizer (and secret rebel intelligence agent), Chewbacca makes his way across the galaxy in hopes of helping his friends Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi one day — but in the meantime, his high-ranking Kashyyykian soldier’s life is over. As Chewbacca begins to wander the galaxy in search of adventure, he realizes two important things: 1. everyone is racist against wookiees, and 2. nobody has a goddamn clue what he’s saying — including the player controlling him. BioWare presents the most immersive and emotional morality tale it has ever created, in which players don’t just have to choose their responses and make important decisions in how they interact with characters, but they have to figure out what the hell they just said by gauging characters’ reactions. A constant battle against pulling off NPCs’ arms in frustration, Chewbacca’s Big Adventure is one wookiee’s tale of self-discovery and howling. Lots and lots of howling.

Mos Eisley Cantina (Ron Whitaker)
Developer: Harmonix

The new rhythm game from EA. Mos Eisley Cantina lets you create a character that will perform vocal and dance numbers on the stage at the famous watering hole. You’ll sing and dance while dodging thrown objects and blaster fire. At launch, we’ll include 30 different authentic Star Wars songs, with hundreds more coming as paid post-launch DLC. Make sure to save up for the expansion where you can play everyone’s favorite pop song from Jabba’s palace! Better with Kinect.

Skimboard (James Murff)
Developer: EA Black Box

The latest in killer sports titles from EA, Skimboard puts you in control of the coolest extreme sport in Star Wars: skimboarding! Perform complicated hoverboard tricks around an open-world Mos Eisley, avoid the smugglers and Hutt thugs that prowl the streets, and earn enough money to get offworld. Day-one DLC includes Cloud City and Coruscant for those wanting to continue their skimboarding beyond the conclusion of the story! Comes with a YouTube recording feature that can be unlocked for a few dollars.

Fett: Bounty Hunter (Ian Cheong)
Developer: Visceral

Boba Fett is a man who walks on the edge of the law, on the thin line between right and wrong. A crew of reality TV producers from Coruscant follow Fett around as he tracks down his marks throughout known space. Along the way, he receives a mark for another ex-clone Trooper, who is most undoubtedly a clone of his dad. He must learn to set his feelings aside by bringing the lawbreaker to justice– and all his actions are recorded and broadcast for mass galactic consumption.

Actually Ross, the thought of Jedi Crusaders gives me a bit of a Star Wars chubby…of course you are a bloody hippie heathen so I’m sure your worldview would shatter or something equally pathetic.

Two games I would love to see.

The first is a space sim is a blend between Tachyeon: The Fringe and Freelancer. It could be the Elder Scrolls in space. Completely open world (should I say galaxy) with a pretty good story to bind it all together. You start off life as a Smuggler and through out the course of the game you can trade goods, take part in assaults of military bases, civilian settlements, blockade runs ect…

The second is a game where you play a Jedi. However, the twist is unlike every other Jedi style game, you DON’T play the Galaxy’s most powerful Jedi. As a matter of fact, you’re not technically a “jedi” at all. This is post episode 3, so the council never came for you. You’ve live most of your life in hiding from the Empire. All of your powers are self taught and you’ve used those powers to get by on the streets. Im thinking something similar to Deus Ex in terms of gameplay. Honestly, more Human Revolution than original though without the godawful energy cell mechanic.

Both games would feature tons of unlocks and secrets, things that keep someone busy for months. The type of game that doesnt end an hour after finally getting all the cool abilities.

Star Wars is for 20-stone eight year olds and 50 year old virgins. EA should bin the franchise and put all their attention behind a pay-as-you-play always-online Mass Effect FPS.

The picture at the end of Tie Fighter gave me some serious nostalgia. You really didn’t see a lot of flight shooters after that on the pc because after that, there was no point to making one, perfection had been reached.

I would buy what Axetwin suggests. Also- can we not ban “Lol”? Is there some sort if ‘ignore’ function on Gamefront if we can’t? “Lol” has never had anything constructive to say, and it’s getting kind of embarrassing for the human race that they keep TALKING. What about the aliens? WHY WOULD THEY COME AND SAVE US ALL IF LOL WAS A REPRESENTATIVE OF OUR RACE??? For the sake of us all, we must KILL LOL/GET LOL OFF GAMEFRONT!!
