Honestly the last good star wars game was jedi power battles
Why are you suprised

Star wars fans dont know what they want so their outrage about ea doesnt even make sense

True. This is the same fanbase that ruined Jake Lloyd's life, relentlessly harassed Kelly Marie Tran over her character in The Last Jedi, and almost drove Ahmed Best (voice of Jar Jar Binks) to kill himself.

Animals. -_-

We could probably have a more constructive discussion about this topic if the title was clear and concise, and the OP wasn't full of sensationalism.

Is it sensationalism to be frustrated that the Star Wars rights holder didn't chew out a shitty publisher for their shitty business practices?

It does lower the thread's overall quality to EA level.

Pretty much this. A large portion of Star Wars fans have been screaming "RUINED FOREVER!" since at least 1983. But Star Wars has survived every other occasion where it was RUINED FOREVER: Greedo firing at Han, bad CGI Jabba in ANH (and bad/overused CGI in general in the Special Editions and prequels), "Jedi Rocks," Hayden Christensen Force ghost, midichlorians, Jar Jar Binks, "I hate sand," the "Anakin becomes Vader" scene, "She has lost the will to live," "NOOOOOOOO!", and so on. I'm sure it'll survive Grouchy Old Luke and a female lead. There's always been parts of the SW fanbase that can never be satisfied and treat each new film as if it were supposed to be a religious experience. Me? I've enjoyed every movie that Lucasfilm has made since the Disney buyout. Far better than the prequels. Of course, I go to the movies to have fun, and I haven't been disappointed yet from the new Star Wars films. Episode 9 is still my most anticipated movie of the year (Endgame is a close second, of course).

Trusting EA to be the sole publisher of SW games was a pretty boneheaded move, though.

Who would could bid on something as big as Star Wars?  Who else would bid?  I'd rather EA than Activision, to be honest.  



Yayaya.

Disney Sucks.
EA sucks.
Star Wars Sucks.

Yet there are many people who give them much money. But why? A grinding question, so i made use of my superhuman power of observation and deduction and i think i found the main culprit behind it all. Its stupid people. Not just one or two. But lots n lots of stupid.

Some very smart scientists once research studied and their findings are alarming. When wearing "Im with stupid" overgarments there is a 135.7% chance that at least 3 stupid persons are present within a 12 meter radius - using metric system shows just how smart those science people are. Reseachers dont know if the chances are higher or lower when married couples with children are compared to the average because the percentage number curiously is converted to ratio number. They dont have any idea why that is either. But they suspect it was some stupid intern who messed around with the data files. A science chick remarks: "We are confident this little mishap will be reversed in the near future."

Anyway. It was concluded, stupidity poses a greater threat to human civilisation than climate change. And as we all know climate change on its own will screw us up in a not so distant future.

Abandon all hope.

Hunting Season is nigh...

You talk like the only bad Star Wars games were made by EA. LucasArts had their fair share of misses as well.



Sounds more to me like he just doesn't care. That's a difference. A person who doesn't care is more likely an asshole rather than an idiot.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

I wonder what is going to happen to the Star Wars IP once the new disney trilogy is done. The new movies are either critically despised and some outright bombed, the toys don't sell, the videogames are panned and exclusively handled by a company universally despised, the books and comics are either ignored or not enough to keep the rest afloat... What's left? They are going to burn out a franchise that years ago seemed to be unsinkable.



You know it deserves the GOTY.
