    Yeah, LucasArts royally screwed Free Radical over very badly back then. The Escapist has a good article detailing it, fittingly titled "LucasArts Run by 'Psychopaths'". [face_plain]

    Make of this what you will.

    I was angry at Lucasarts like you guys, but when I read these, I realized that they really weren't at fault (at least not completely). Funny since TuggieGameReviews even said in his 1st video in a series of them based on the supposed proof that BF3 was being made by Spark Unlimited (In which such a revelation of their actual project they were working on turned out to be quite the opposite of what we were theorizing) that he assumed Lucasarts wanted to make sure the game was good before they release it. I guess he was right since they seemingly tried again with Slant Six since files for a potential BF3 appeared in Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. It seems they obviously still want to make it but they want it to be good before they do so.

    I'm more sad that it contributed to the downfall of Free Radical than the lack of the game itself, honestly...

    I don't believe LucasArts side of the story.

    At all.

    I highly doubt the 99% number. Games that simply need a little bug-testing don't get canned. Especially not when in an already proven money-maker of a series like Battlefront. I'm thinking Haze being as bad as it was, not to mention as late as BFIII was becoming, had as much to do with it as anything.

    Here's that full article btw: http://www.gamespot.com/news/former...-why-star-wars-battlefront-iii-failed-6400936

    I believe the employee on this (with exception to the "Ponzi scheme theory"), especially since most of it falls in line with what I posted earlier in the thread in how that former Rebellion employee claims they hadn't been receiving builds to base their versions of BF3 on, especially him mentioning hearing how "Mediocre" they looked for the time the game was in development.

    This isn't like say Star Fox 2 on the SNES which had somewhat more legitimate reasons for cancellation, what with the N64 on the horizon and not wanting to divert attention from it or even the original Earthbound, again for similar reasons despite a second attempt near the end of the NES' lifetime prior to the release of it's successor on the SNES.

    If done right could easily rival call of duty! Id also love to see a StarWar fighting game.

    call of duty is a horrible game to follow.... Same thing every year....

    on the IGN poll Halo 4 beat cod bo2 178k votes to 52k votes....

    But, no other game matters because there is no other game like battlefront. Because no other game has AI in multiplayer :D

    The PlayStation exclusive Killzone series does have bots in multiplayer, but it is generally played without them, particularly Killzone 2 and 3. I haven't played the last two, Killzone 2 and 3, because I don't have a PS3, but I know of them and I have Killzone for the PS2.

    Yep. If BF & KotOR both got the HD treatment, I would be a happy gamer again.

    Wasn't BF 2 released the same year as the 360? if so, they should have released it for the 360

    They did release BF 2 for the 360 actually...

    EDIT: Or was that for the original X-Box? I can never remember :p

    The 360 came out a year or two later.
    I don't believe that the game was 99% complete. They would have let something slip or an official announcement that it was coming out.
    SithLordDarthRichie I watched that whole thing. There were some glitches still but looked really fun
