    Well, MY ideal (and again, this is just me saying what I'd like, not based on any facts or even rumors) would be that they include all four Factor 5 Star Wars games (Rogue Squadron, Battle For Naboo, Rogue Leader, and Rebel Strike) in their original forms, but as a BONUS include this 'movie mode' I'm suggesting.

    It would be very interesting, though, if they had a mode that placed ALL the levels from all the games in chronological order. Rogue Squadron and Rogue Leader would be easy, since all the non-bonus levels in Squadron take place before all the non-bonus levels in Leader, with the exception of Death Star Attack. What would be very interesting is the integration of some of the Rebel Strike levels and bonus levels from all the games which I don't think actually have ever been given specified locations on the Star Wars timeline.

    Good thoughts.

    I guess separating the levels by game would be easier than splicing them that seems most likely.
    I hope they have cheats still, I could never get past some levels without them.

    You might find this thread over in Lit a fun mental exercise taking the idea to the extreme: [link=]Shall We Play a Game? - Arranging Video Game Storylines By Level [/link]. I actually started that thread based on almost the exact same idea you had with arranging RS levels as a series.

    We can only hope that the RS series gets at least ported to the VC. If they're [graphically] redone, that'll make my day fore sure! I remember proposing that idea in a thread about 4 years ago! Let's all just pray that this rumor (or w/e you wanna call it), becomes a reality, unlike that rumor back in the last generation, that Factor 5 was working on an RS remake project "Rogue X", metinks, for the Xbox.

    At this time, Factor 5 may just be still waiting to see how things our working out with their Sony release of Lair. Funny how they seemed to have jumped between the companies over the years (not really giving Microsoft much attention,afaik, hmmm...). Well we best all be crossin' our fingers that their "mesmerization" with the PS3s power, doesn't result in this idea being released on that $479 80 GB BR monster (no offense, PlayPeople).

    Honestly, I don't own any of the 7th Generation systems, and really have no plans to, even if I had the money. If this story in Star Wars remains exclusive to Nintendo, would at least make me feel good. I, on the other hand am still waiting for RSIV: The Yuuzahn-Vong Conflict. Chances are they'll wait 'til WiiHD, to release another sequel. Never really knew anything about that particular race or their role, post-Episode VI, but I've researched [over the years] they were a serious force to be reckoned with. I personally can't wait to engage them, in an RS sequel, after learning about them. I love a challenge!!8-}
