I still think that the dark side needs to creep up a little more in Anakin in season 2. From the interviews with Ashley and Matt, the dark side will not only show up in Anakin, but in Ahsoka too.

It brings depth to the characters.

I didn't say the movie was bad, I loved it! I just hated the main storyline, you know with the whole jedi order trying to rescue Jabba the Hutt's son, which Ahsoka then named "Stinky".

Asajj Ventress is amazing, and the battle between her and Obi-Wan stole the whole movie!

But anyways, we're getting off topic here. The board's about the game, not the movie.
QFT. I didn't mind the first season, especially after they got rid of the name 'Sky-guy'. The premiere for season 2 was far, far better than anything in the first season, though.

I played the demo for this game on my PS3 the other day. It was...lame. TFU on the PS2 was more fun (and you know I've sunk to the depths of boredom with something when I say that ). The little lock puzzles were stupid. I knew exactly how to work them about one second after I saw 'em, but the stupid things kept turning in the opposite direction I wanted them to go! -_-

Also, the Clone level was annoying. It was too hard to pick myself out from the others, and it was waaaay too easy to take down those hordes of battle droids.

The Jedi level was just...terrible. The combat was lame, and the characters' voices, (which are usually well-acted in the show), sounded...distinctly bored.

Krome hasn't impressed me.

Oh, well. Maybe they'll make a decent game out of the second season. (sigh)


Chapter 12 of A Soul Adrift is out.

Short stories:
T'katlu: On the planet Felucia, a young apprentice of the Dark Side thinks back to the beginning of her training as she lies in wait for her prey...

All the Time: After four years in the Unknown Regions, the Exile returns to the known galaxy to visit an old enemy.

Broken: A master of the Dark Side finds himself about to lose the one thing he cares about--and he will do anything to stop her from endangering herself.

Well I'm a sucker for game that everybody else hates, like the Harry Potter games for PC, and gameboy color. They have extremely low ratings, but I find myself playing them again for the hundredth time. And I personally love the new 3D platforming engine that LEGO Star Wars introduced.

Another thing that helps me to play the demo of the new game, is that my whole family are star wars fans, and my little five year old sister adores Ahsoka. And then she heard that you could actually PLAY her. OMG!
Now I am having to play with her everyday.

Agreed. I miss those days.

That being said, I don't hate the new clone wars. It has some good episodes and action. They just need to really tone down the slapstick.

Oh, and not making a game that by all accounts is dreadful helps too.

I have fond memories of reading the Dark Horse Republic comics, and I was always wowed by the stories, art, and dark themes. Stuff like the Battle of Kamino, Jabim, and everything related to the twisted life of Quinlan Vos was awesome!

Too bad Lucas isn't spending time trying to replicate things like this, instead of a cartoon show.


Are you one of those poor Macintosh gamers that are in the possession of Empire at War, yet because of the scarcity of Mac players out there you have nobody to play against? If you are, PM me if you want to set up a game.

LA needs to stop.
The Clone Wars are over. We know what happens in the end, so there's no point wrenching out game after game after tv series about it.
Focus on new things in the Star Wars universe plzkthx

Right... No need for the live action series neither. We know what happens in the end. That works for the prequel trilogy too.

I like the Clone Wars! Lots of action, and Anakin shows his corruption more in season 2 (Unless Ashley Eckstien is wrong). Ahsoka has pretty much dropped the nicknames now.

Anyways, I am very excited to buy this game. The demo was a lot of fun IMO.

It might be true that it is a well done series, the problem most have with it is that first, it seems to cater, possibly, way to much to children, meaning that its plots are almost no different to many other childrens shows, aside from the SW characters and such. Then there is the fact that because LucasArts and other related companies devote their care more to things such as The Clone Wars, it means that other projects, that actually have some originality(at least in the sense that they don't have much to do with the movies), and might I say, put of some of the needed darkness or sense of real danger into the SW universe(*cough The Sith Lords cough*), might just get either shelved, never released, scrapped entirely, or released in a pitiful form.

I don't think so. About TSL, there was no Clone Wars at the time to serve as an excuse for it's many bugs. And just because a company like LucasArts released a game like this, that doesn't mean they are not doing something about other SW games too. Besides, LucasArts is just the publisher, so that's one more reason to believe they're working on more games as well. TOR, BFIII?, etc...

I think that the movie's plot line was trash, but the series has pretty original storyline. And you've got to admit, Cad Bane is pretty sweet! Cad Bane is climbing up the list of favorite Villans. And if you watch the series long enough, you will see homages to the old movies, and other things that are meant for the adults.

One of the funny moments, is in the episode Bombad Jedi, where Jar Jar stars along side C3-PO. Jar Jar represents the younger audiences humor, and C3-PO represents the older audiences humor. It shows the two of them bicker, much like the old and young audiences do in real life.
Another mature theme in the show, is in the episodes Jedi Crash and Defenders of the Peace. It deals with sacrifice, and fighting in what you believe in, even when it is the unpopular choice.

EDIT:

The problem of the movie, is that it was released as a movie, and not on it's original for: episodes.

Right on the first episode, there's an OT Yoda.

True, but there was the work they were likely doing for ROTS, and it seems that everything else besides just gets a date to ship, and if it isn't ready, "oh well". Seems to fit, since they even forbade Obsidian to make a patch that would complete the game.

But more on topic, It is possible that other things other than Clone Wars material is being worked on, but it seems more priority is placed on things relating to the movies and such, and not as much to other things.
