They are actually no reports of what will come on this years E3. Not even any real rumors.
Kinect is released, so it will not be there. But if Lucasarts, and mayby Bioware will attend, hopefully they have more to tell then how they will expand TOR.
WE STILL GOT ONE GAME onine being updated!! Star Wars The Old Republic:)
An update is an update, even if those updates is a ton larger then the combined dlc for the tfu-games :P And even if TOR will get even bigger expansions, its still not announced. And its a console exklusive game, with 2 million playing it. Its not really that impressive. Yet.
Its only a few days left now and when Kinec Star Wars game is released, we will have zero Star Wars games announced. Zero! Cant remember that ever happend since I started playing Star Wars-games.
No games coming this year, next year or in 2 or 3 years. I know that being not announced dosent say there isent any games in development, becouse they defently are. But this is like killing hope for all the fans the company has gathered. Instead of Star Wars, people will think of Mass Effect, Halo and Gears of War when they think of sci fi games. Kotor 1 and Jedi Outcast was long ago. We need new hits. Console exklusive games can never be that big. Games for kids has never been hits and never generated alot of money.
You know what we want Lucasats. Announce something and give us hope!
The Force Unleashed 3
Republic Commando 2
The Fighter 2
Empire at War 2
Jedi Knight 4
Kotor - singelplayer game
Since im in love with TOR and play it week after week and seem to never complete it (have one lvl 43 character at most), there was that thing that I dident agree with you thelastdisciple. But everyting else that you said; spot on, spot on. It was like everyting I feel about Star Wars games right now. I could not have said it better.
Its like Lucasarts thinks they will get money form the kids-games. Totally forgetting the 15 year old gamers, up to the 50+ year old guys that today play games, and they are holding on all that big money. They are the ones that can buy 2-5 Star Wars games a year if the games are good. They are the ones that can make a game sell 10M+ copies a year. Not the kids. And TOR just cant possibly sell that much, taking that much from wow.
The potental in Star Wars-games is so great, its a shame Lucasarts is just wasting time doing nearly nothing.
Definitely getting a bit tired of the alienation of serious Star Wars gamers, i get that the franchise as a whole greatly caters to kids, i mean it has a lot of lightheartedness and kid friendly aspects and I am not against that, i take it all in good measure...Pit Droids can be great fun and nice to see that re-released for iOS but when all LucasArts seems to be pumping out these days are Lego themed games and things like this new Kinect one which is completely uninteresting... you just have to wonder what they're up to?
Alright so there's The Old Republic that just came out and I'd give that a shot but MANY of us do not want to spend 60 bucks initially for some software and THEN have to continue to dish out money we probably don't have for it in order to keep playing month after month or how ever many months in advance that you'd like to pay for, I've just never believed in that logic no matter if it supports all their "updates" and server bills or not and these days there's enough of our own bills and things to pay for, it'd be a lot more plausible to manage something that you don't have to subscribe to.
Also the Clone Wars TV show while i love the series and watch it every Friday that it's on, with all due respect the games that have come out in it's style have just been so abysmal i mean like Clone Wars Republic Heroes.... seriously?........
The Force Unleashed is about the only hope there seems to be left of anything for serious gamers at the present moment and even then the sequel was quite disappointing.. not for it's story or characters really or even gameplay, i enjoyed all of that but it felt more like an expansion pack then a fully fledged sequel since it was so short and it shouldn't have been sold at full price when it first came out but now it's been since October 2010 now and it's pretty much a bargain binner, i guess there was about a full year in between the release years.. if the first came out in fall 2008 but looking at the way things are right now..it's February 2012 and there's been no word about continuing it unless they've been working on a 3rd game in secret and are taking a lot more time on it.
So much potential in existing lines of games, we've got the shooters in first and third person perspectives Dark Forces/Jedi Knight, Battlefront and Republic Commando. We've got a good RPG series in Knights of the Old Republic (where's our proper 3rd?), a fantastic real-time strategy (RTS) entry Empire at War and it's expansion, Rogue Squadron a brilliant and fun arcade style air combat series.
What about some new space simulators like the old X-wing vs. Tie Fighter? that'd be a welcomed resurgence of Star Wars games and a huge change as of late. Why aren't they interested in any of these anymore?
Revisiting something like that Bounty Hunter one would be cool, obviously that wasn't the greatest game in comparison with the aforementioned but it was definitely a fantastic idea and would deserve better execution.
What ever they're up to i hope the LEGO stuff isn't all we have to look forward to in the next couple of years or that will just simply suck.....

This is not the thread you're looking for. Seriousely, this is called "The Official: Where are the new Star Wars Games thread". Not, "Whine about Star Wars movies thread." Thank you for yor time and the big post.
You don't need to see his signature. He is not the guy you're looking for. He can go about his buisness. Move along.

Episode's 1 2 & 3 were nowhere near as amazing as 4 5 & 6, & let's face it 3 sucked big time died in child birth yeah whatever. Sorry Lucas but I would reconmend you watch an amazing film, you may know of it, it's called Star Wars Episode 6 Return of The Jedi.
Luke: Laia do you remember your mother, your real mother
Laia: Just a little bit she died when I was very young
Me: No she apparentley died in childbirth
Luke: What do you remember of her
Laia: She was very beautyfull, kind but sad
Luke: I have no memory of my mother
Me: Yeah Luke & your the Jedi, even Yoda admited it's easyer to see the past than it is the future & yet you were able to see what would happen to cloud city if you didn't go face Vader in Empire Strikes back yet you don't remmember your mother, whatever.
Lucas doesn't give a s*** about the fans all Star Wars is to him these day's is a way to make money at are expence. They don't listen & couldn't give a s*** what we think let alone what we want, the only reason I' even here is to talk to my fellow fans because it's obvious from all the threads that LA doesn't give a s*** about us.
I wonder what happened to starwars battlefront III? Anyone know whos making it and if their a EA partner i might wiggle room in and get to test it. Anyone have any information becuase i dont want to start a new thread with similar content with this being at the top of the list.
"why not make an open universe where you can fly your ship from planet to planet having battles along the way. choose to be sith , jedi, or bounty hunter make decisions effecting characters storyline and be able to customize characters and ship completely.(all platforms please)

We call this game star wars galaxies ( for making the decisions , if you want something like that , you will need to RP) but lucasart found a game like that useless and want to close it the 15th december
Well, at least they signed an Unreal Engine 3 Licensing Agreement. But in Paul Meegans shoes I would have decided to finish all the cliffhanger games with a decend sequel first and also tried listen to the fan base as to what they really want. After that he still could've severed all the ties to the other game developers in order to try and make LucasArts self-dependent.
Knights of the Old Republic III
The Force Unleashed III
And after that LucasArts could start to make some good and most importantly finished and polished games as an self-dependent game developer in order to earn some profit and most importantly regain peoples trust.
i wish someone that could actually do something for us the fan base of lucas games could BIG SLAP in the face to lucasarts whole crew! they dont even care about us anymore XD seriously speaking this is the worst thing that a company could ever do to the fans. practically ignore us and dont care about their own company either, seriously what a waste of time.. been waiting for some quality game i dont even care if it has to be some new star wars game or unknow character i just want a game with quality! not a game in which all they care about is leeching our money out.
God please Bless lucasarts and give them a reality check now !
They should make Star Wars Battlefront with the same features as Battlefront 2 just more realistic and add more jedi's and planets. They should also make the space battles more intense with multiple star ships and you should be able to blow up the starships. They could also add a story line like in sports games where you start out as an apprentice and work your way up to a master or sith lord. They could do this with clones as well.
