I was never into Battlefront. Not my type of game. I enjoy story-focused games Star Wars games like SWTOR, KOTOR, DF1/2, JK2, JKA.

yeah, I kinda raised an eyebrow to that shield thing too. But seeing Boba Fett using his jetpack made up for it.  Also during a panel with DICE today they said the star destroyer ruins in the new Force Awakens teaser will be explained in this game:

 I've never actually played any of the Battlefront games before, but I'm excited for this.  I love the fact that it looks like about 90% (or more) of the in game content is influenced by the OT.  To be honest the last SW games I played were the Dark Forces/Jedi Knight ones. But I do like DICE's battlefield games (when they work) so this game might bring me back.

SWBF2 was my first real multiplayer fps. I used to play the pc version online a lot. A few years later I got into the Star Wars First Strike mod for Battlefield 2142, as well as vanilla bf2142, bf2, bf2 sandbox, bf2 racer, and to a far lesser extent, project reality and AIX. Good times. Of course, now that I am big on FLOSS(Free/Libre and Open Source Software)-ness, I am stuck with the next best thing: ETLegacy. Shame there aren't any real free and open source Battlefield clones...

As for the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront game, I probably won't play it, but if I did, I hope that it implements squad play and other battlefield features, as there has been a drought of T-rated Battlefield games. Sure, I'm old enough to play the M-rated games if I really wanted to, but I prefer not thinking about untoggable profanity and blood.

Sorry if there's already a thread about this, but I didn't find one.  Any other gamers excited about this?

I'd imagine most are.

I find that deal with EA all sorts of depressing. Give me a good story-driven game, not a Battlefield clone/reskin. Hell, I'd take a crappy story-driven game in place of a Battlefield clone/reskin. Virtually any game, really.

Obviously, I'd love to see a follow-up to KotOR2 from Obsidian, preferably in the form of a finished game this time around ;) No chance of that happening with EA in the driver's seat, though.

I really hate when a movie I want to watch has something explained in a video game I have no interest in playing, watching, or reading about.

While I probably will play this one, I totally agree with you. I'm sure there won't be much story in this game though (if any) because it's basically just an online multiplayer shooter. And who knows, we might get more backstory for the battle in Ep 7 than the game will even show.

To be fair, Linux is also lacking in story based games.

I really hate when a movie I want to watch has something explained in a video game I have no interest in playing, watching, or reading about.

If it is something that is completely unimportant to the story in the film, then I don't see why would you even care. In this particular case it seems to be just a matter of fancy background.

Well they do refer to the "new republic" and the "empire" in the description about the battle of Jakku.  First cannon mention of the new republic, though it seems to not be existent in TFA so far.

Meaning that maybe both fell greatly, eventually causing the "resistance" and "the first order" to rise by TFA.

I'm guessing this game won't go into story allowing "Aftermath" to cover it, OR it could be an opening for TFA much like how Trek '09 started, with a battle taking many years before the present story takes place.

Apparently you don't want it all, as you won't play video games or read books to get it.

Battlefront 2 had a short but interesting singleplayer campaign, though. My hope is that they will at least make a similar campaign to connect the OT to the new movies, like from the Battle of Endor to wherever TFA's grand finale will take place. I'm not expecting too much, though.

 Really? Well, this game had my curiousity, but now it has my attention.

Just so this post is legal and on topic, I really enjoyed the trailer.  It almost looks good enough for daneditor to use some footage for his edit, should he feel up to it.

Alright guys, I've went ahead and released a video breaking down the Star Wars: Battlefront in-engine footage reveal and the new trailer for the new movie The Force Awakens giving speculation on both. If you enjoy games and enjoy Star Wars and have the time to invest; watch the video. There's alot of info in here you don't want to miss.

No Bespin and Yavin? No space battles? 

C'mon, EA. This feels like an incomplete game.
