I'll be back in a bit everyone. I'm going to grab an extremely large tub of Ben & Jerrys, sit in my shower and cry my fucking eyes out at the fact this game was cancelled.

FUCK YOU LUCAS ARTS!
I'm with you on that. Hold on, I think I have some Ben & Jerrys Schweddy Balls ice cream.


Seeing how far they were into development makes it all the more depressing *cry*


Captcha: face to face.... Yes, I would like a face to face confrontation with the execs at lucasarts and demand to know why they could make Star wars kinect but not this.

So wait...they could make a Darthvader dance off but not this? That's like dropping Halo 4 for Halocart racing.
Need I remind you this a company named after a man that thought this.


This


This


And This


Would all be great ideas, and the only thing out of that list that he ever went out and said he regretted was the last one?


Anyways... The game had so much potential only to be all pissed away T_T

I also have the sinking feeling that if they do make the game, it'll be by a different company and it will essentially just be a Modern Warfare rip-off reskinned as "Star Wars!"
Let me guess Nostalgia Critic fan?

Wait, so can anyone explain why they decided to cancel this? It looked like it could have been a pretty awesome game.

Was it delays? Or just asshole-syndrome on the part of the higher ups?

Looks like some quality improvements over battlefront 2, would have been nice.

Wow that was, ummm, quite good looking game footage. Shame the game got cancelled but I'm sure that i won't succumb to emotions like other members of the escapist. I'm fine. I really am, not a single issue with seeing this. I..I.....I-I......

*Cue true reaction: watch from 0:40*

May I dare ask how someone could be -that- traumatized by a car accident?..

Just read it and good lord! I knew a company going under was a big deal but I had no idea it could be that slow and painful! Makes me worry about the guys behind the Prototype series.

You want any rocky road? I've got a little left over from Mass Effect 3. "sigh" what the Hell is wrong with video games these days?

God damnit Lucasarts! What happened to you? From games like Monkey Island and Battlefront, to Star Wars Kinect, how the mighty have fallen.

The worst part about this is that this is virtually the only Star Wars series that could have shipped a million+ units anymore.

Where's the fuckin' Kickstarter when we actually need it?!!!

Jesus. I can't believe they made Star Wars Kinect and they canned this. That must be the dumbest business decision I've ever heard of.

I hope for the fans of the Battlefront series, that one of the devs kept a copy of the files somewhere.

I'm no fan of that show (Clannad). But somehow being a anime-buff requires me to respond. Basically, troubled childhood.

Another Crystal Skull hater? Le sigh.
It's not his fault that George Lucas can't write for shit and that his company can't even milk its franchise correctly.

If it really was almost complete at the time it was cancelled, here's hoping that a disgruntled dev eventually does what one of the disgruntled devs of Star Fox 2 did and leaks that sucker. It should see the light of day, and IP law be damned. It should be illegal to just sit on something like that. If you're not gonna sell it, release it for free.
