    it would be cool to fight with the war droids on Byss against the darkside beasts like wedge and lando did in DE2, but the citadel would be almost impossible to capture because of its defense's and dark jedi guarding it.

    If the demo works good, is the full game gauranteed(I never could spell that word right)to work? (I am the one with the 200 mhz pentium)

    Normally the demos run WORSE than the full versions (they have in most of my experience)... final versions are better optimised.

    Full version will have the option to go to a lower resolution, play less sounds, etc

    According to the Gamespot review, all Jedi look the same. And all Sith look the same.
    The Gungans will have Jedi, but the Jedi won't be Gungans.

    I don't know if anyone has mentioned this, but wouldn't it rock if they put out an expansion with a new playable race - the Yuuzhan Vong? It would be pretty cool to use their biotechnology . . . just a thought.

    I'm a bit dissapointed with the jedi in battlegrounds demo. Their sabers are all either blue or red and they can't deflect bolts like they could in force comander (I'm talking about the jedi characters like luke and vader.)
    The new shields seen in the trailer for the game look good though, they have obviously changed it a bit since the demo.

    The Camel tells me:
    "They are like the Yuuzhan Vong..."

    So the circle is complete. ;-)
    Heh, maybe we'll end up seeing the Gungans allying with the Y. Vongs somewhen...

    Excuse me, I'm on a trip... and this is off topic ;-)

    Well, if the sabers were mixed green + blue, then it would be really confusing if it was a knight or a master (guessing that master has green saber). And they can't deflect bolts, true, but if they could, it would make them even more powerful than they already are. And how would bounty hunters kill them? Knife 'em? ;)

    It comes out tommorow!! This is the official reaction thread! How are you getting it? Where are you getting it? When are you getting it? Are you getting it? :)

    I'm getting it off Amazon.com Hopefully it will show up tomorrow or Tuesday!

    I'm not getting it for a while, I'm going to get Starfighter PC first (will be available in a fortnight in the UK :p ;)).

    Erly, the camel's back! How's he been? ;)

    Corleone, where did you learn Starfighter PC would be out in a fortnight in the UK?

    Multiple sources? Have you had it confirmed?

    Cause, y'know, lucasarts.com says;

    Availability: PlayStation 2 Available Now, Xbox Nov. '01, PC Jan. '02

    <points at Corleone, and stifles a giggle, but waits to see Corleone's proof of early UK release before bursting out into a hysterical fit of laughter>
