Lol This is no where near a RPG

 #2 - Posted by: Jesse_Lee (Member) on 10-18-2008 at 16:33

Role Playing Game for the win!

No one said SWBF2 was an RPG. This is asking about Star Wars.

sortof a rail shooter. you are just watching

 #5 - Posted by: RED51 (Member) on 10-18-2008 at 17:46

It's a tie between arcade shooters and Role Playing Games!

 #6 - Posted by: Gold_Leader (Member) on 10-18-2008 at 18:07

I would say between RPG and rail shooting (even thou I dunno what it is, I'm guessing shooting with a gun).

 #7 - @6 - Posted by: Maveritchell (Staff) on 10-18-2008 at 18:36

Rail shooters were a lot of the old Star Wars games and a lot of the arcade games. (E.g. Rebel Assault series, Trilogy Arcade) You never see them anymore - rail shooters are games where you have a preset course through a level and you really only control where you're aiming your gun.

ooh. . . like that one Star Wars Arcade? I never liked those probably a tie between RPG and FPS. . . would Jedi Outcast and stuff count as RPG? they would, right? but it has FPS too. . . anyway, both of those. . . I could see it as more of an all-around shooting game like third and first person shooter

RPG, kotor 1 and 2 were the best star wars games, their stories were excellant and the fighting was fun.

 #10 - RPG - Posted by: A_L_I_E_N (Member) on 10-19-2008 at 00:22

Cause KotOR beats every SW game so far.

 #11 - Posted by: StupidJedi (Member) on 10-19-2008 at 10:25

i dont know what "rail-shooter" is, but i think the action/adventure are best. i almost picked RPG, but i didnt really like the way you attack people in KOTOR, you have to click that little attack symbol and that tiny button that changes yr attack.

 #12 - Posted by: star_wars_freak (Member) on 10-19-2008 at 10:32

:):(:o boooooooooooooooooooooo!

 #13 - Posted by: Schofield (Member) on 10-19-2008 at 14:33

KotOR was the crappiest series, to many overpowered jedi/sith.

 #14 - Posted by: ecusoccerdude (Member) on 10-19-2008 at 17:01

bf2 is the only star wars game ive played so i just voted for rail shooter

 #15 - RPG - Posted by: GrdAdmSenza (Member) on 10-19-2008 at 18:44

Idk, just RPG

 #16 - Posted by: Anakin12 (Member) on 10-20-2008 at 08:43

Games like:Jedi Academy,Rouge Squadron and Battlefront Role Playing like KOTOR

 #17 - Posted by: Jack2066 (Member) on 10-20-2008 at 09:58

Crap I misread!

 #18 - Posted by: Arcious (Member) on 10-20-2008 at 11:20

Eh I was just saying from my point of view it looks more of a strategy/arcade shooter

 #19 - Posted by: Darth_Palpatine (Member) on 10-20-2008 at 13:53

KOTOR beats the crap out of every star wars game. Period. :D:D:D

 #20 - Posted by: Game_Jedi (Member) on 10-20-2008 at 16:33

kotor is the best. no questions asked. rock on kotor:rock:

 #21 - Posted by: itachi100 (Member) on 10-20-2008 at 20:52

 #24 - Posted by: Darth_Awec (Member) on 10-22-2008 at 08:22

A FPS like the Jedi Knight series, the other genre that was the Rogue Squadron series, or a Flight Sim like the X-Wing Series. I never liked KotOR or SWG.

 #25 - Posted by: fiodis (Member) on 10-22-2008 at 16:49

Other. "Star Wars" is relaly too general a topic. You have hardcore RPGs like KOTOR and then you have the Rebel Assault series and SWBF2. It's all over the place. Even if we focus on, say, SWBF2, that game has a lot of potential for multiple genres. Spira: Besaid is an example of how SWBF2 can be a RPG, for instance. I've also been on some online RPG servers led by a person named Hero_Unit, and they're pretty good.

 #26 - Posted by: MatmanDude (Member) on 10-22-2008 at 17:34

I think that Star Wars (not bf2 necesarily) games have the best stories and gameplay and are most *movie-ish* in third person fights/first person shooters. Examples: Dark Forces 2, JK2-3, EP III Video Game, TFU, etc.
