Question Episode II Game Style

Since it's just over a year away, it's pretty obvious that LEC is working on an 'official' movie tie-in game, like TPM was to Episode I the movie.

What style do you think that game will be in? Puzzle-adventure like TPM, or something different? Maybe a third-person action a la Obi-Wan? Post your thoughts/wishes here.

Wishes! Yaaaaa!

Hmmm, a TPS like TPM would be nice, of course a FPS like JK would be cool too (anyone seen the Jedi Outcast previews? They rock! )

It would be cool if there had been a combination style game like say Battle for Naboo combined with TPM, where you could get into one of the N-1 starfighters in the TPM hangar, and actually fly it

I hope it'll be like Obi-Wan, but you will be able too pilot fighters too. That would be very cool.

When the camera is closer to the player (like Obi-Wan, JK, JK2) you seem to be more IN the game and not just in a ship floating some distance above the player.

Yeah, the TPM was kind hard to control when it came to combat.
The jumping wasn't too bad but they should still leave it out, hint hint.

Talking about jumping in TPM, you don't have too do much in that first part of The Theed Gardens if you know the OTHER way.

So much for staying on topic.
Hehe.. I wouldn't mind if the epi.II game was like TPM.

The TPM game was good but I think they should at least move the camera down to a 3rd person view like in Obi-Wan, JK2, JK.

You baaaaaad people! No spoilers for the poor children! (Though I'd looooove to control Obi-Wan's ship...a cross between the A-Wing and the Star Destroyer *drool* oops! )

I thought TPM was easy to control in combat. the only bad thing was the limit to the number of things you can do, while fighting, at once. (Why not jump and slash at the same time?) Ah well. Of course I've never played JK or MotS so I can't compare.

To tell the truth, I know of a few spiolers too, but I stoped quite shortly because I didn't want too ruin to much.

Redwing,

Try TAPPING the attack button while you're jumping...especially fun if you can time it so you flip while slashing.
