  1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels bashing/gushing will be subject to Mod action. Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    No, I just like to think it doesn't exist. Although now that you mention it.... [face_thinking] [face_idea]

    What's that? :p

    Part of me thinks that just because Palpatine and Vader knew Bail was a Rebel doesn't make Bail easy to get to. He could have been hiding right under their noses on Alderaan, but that doesn't mean they'd find him, and prior to the completion of the Death Star (after which the senate became expendable), Palpatine might not have been able to make overt attacks on Alderaan and start killing senators.

    The other part of me thinks that even if Bail was in hiding, Leia didn't seem to be. Villain strategy 101: if you can't attack someone directly, go after their loved ones.

    Personally, I just prefer to pretend TFU never happened. The story of the first one I thought was OK, though does bring up this plot hole. But the second one was terrible and if they end not making a third, then they end up leaving things in an extremely awkward cliffhanger that can't go unresolved. It's easier for me to ignore the whole thing.

    I have both games but only played through half of the first one. I found it boring. <<;

    Well I really liked TFU 1, but as video game I wouldn't take it as fully canonical anyway. Second game had a few good ideas and that's it- otherwise it was terrible and completely bad as a game and story- Only thing I really liked in it was Imperial Cato Neimoidia.

    First TFU-game was enjoyable fun, while not that special as a game it looked very good and I liked the atmosphere in it. Story was much better than in those older ridiculous Jedi Knight-games (that are for some reason very popular). I have Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy as well, but despite of their fun arsenal of guns and explosives they are pretty poor as jedi games IMHO and they have so stupid plots that they are more like comedy or Star Wars- parody than serious stuff. Jedi Academy especially, Kyle goes for a beer and during that time Jaden kills 50 idiotical mercenaries then Kyle comes back and tells that Jaden is becoming a good jedi..... I laugh every time when I watch those story videos, they are so laughable[face_laugh]. KOTOR however is good RPG, but fighting is frustrating in it.

    Okay that went off-topic, but my point is that SW-video games are not usually that good- unfortunately.

    TFU 2 was barely half a game- one of the greatest disappointments what comes to SW-games. It definitely should have had more levels. Dark side ending should be considered canon simply because rebel victory on Kamino contradicts the opening crawl of ANH.....

    I am back...

    TFU 2 had only two planets, a plot that is too weak for even one episode of the worst TCW arcs or episodes and it just ended in the middle of nowhere.

    It basically has 4 main parts and two of them are quite similar. Basically Kamino, Cato Neimoidia, the Rebel Ship and Kamino again. That is it.

    Too short, nothing much new.




    The game like many TCW episodes raised more questions than answered questions.

    I get that that's supposed to show that something awful from TCW is still leaps and bounds better than TFU II, only I never particularly hated Shadow Warrior. It was far from my favorite, but I still thought it was OK. Far from the worst TCW has to offer.

    Seriously?! Shadow Warrior and TFU II comparing... You are like comparing a serious case of hemoroids and a pile of crap - both are nasty, just the latter not so much. TFU II is nothing compared to Shadow Warrior in the vile department.
    TFU II is just a simple fluke, not a crime. :D

    Nah there isn't much to talk about. I'm being pretty lax with staying on topic in this thread. I just thought that convo had gone far enough with Dan's arrival. =b

    Still another week to go before we get new info on MIA.

    It makes me happy that there is an artist out there doing comic style caricatures of well known characters like Captain America, Spider-Man, Hobgoblin, Jason (Friday the 13th), Lara Croft, and then tucked amongst them is...

    For having 2 seconds of screen time, he oozes awesomeness and needs more.

    Perhaps a background character in S5 or 6 :p

    They killed off all of their current background Jedi except "Sora Bulq" :-B
