    Yea, there have been way worse tie in games based on the Star Wars license. The Jar Jar "education" kids game springs to mind.

    Priceless. That's the first thing I thought of too.

    I vote hilarious. Star Wars died in 1983 when a band of semi-intelligent hedgehogs armed with wooden spears defeated a legion of stormtroopers with armor support on the forest moon of Endor. After that, this game was inevitable.

    God help us all. I want to facepalm so hard that it knocks me out of my chair. This is beyond all the other shit they have ever pulled. This is retarded on a level that is beyond my comprehension. Why!? You want to make a Kinect Star Wars game and that is the best you can pull off? Someone needs to get their ass kicked for that one.

    Hmm, what exactly makes someone a huge Star Wars fan? I've only seen the original trilogy. :)

    It is pretty stupid what Star Wars has become nowadays though, Lucas needs to be shot into the Sun to prevent even more of his movies becoming extremely altered and/or play toys for children :x

    South Park was quite on the ball really with the rape of Indiana Jones episode and the older one when Lucas changes the original Indiana movies which become so bad that people's eyes pop out when they watch it :lol:

    This man has a point.

    Still, at that time, that was just one stain on a series that otherwise had a lot to offer. I think Star Wars Kinect just crossed a certain line that the franchise had not, as of yet, managed to cross. A line that nobody wanted it to cross. I mean, in comparison to this crap, even Jar Jar Binks looks good.

    There is still some good stuff in the expanded universe... Timothy Zahn's novels, for example. And Jedi Academy.

    you know why they had those apes in the movie in the first place? They sell great as toys.

    Not to derail this but... arent there people in the desert whos standard issue military issue footware is sandals... diddn't they beat the russians out of afghanistan and... are currently giving the USA a hell of a time as well?
    The Ewoks can be faulted for being too fuzzy and cute but don't ever underestimate the effectiveness of guerilla tactics.

    There's a difference between a less sophisticated force winning a protracted guerilla conflicted and a group of anthropomorphic, stone-age teddy bears beating a legion of the Empire's best troops in a straight fight.

    The reason why Battlefront 3 was cancelled and decent SW games are no longer made; change of management. David Doak of Free Radical complains that people passionate about making games in LucasArts where replaced by psychopaths sometime in 2008. Their attitude was not conducive towards game development:

    LucasArts: We're going to screw you out of the money promised in your contract.

    Doak(Free Radical): You can't do this I made Goldeneye!

    He suggests that publishers can go back on an already shitty contract, perfectly willing to take on devs in court.

    Angry Joe essentially does a spot on "this game sucks and Lucas is morally bankrupt" in his review on Youtube.

    Angry joe is the bomb..altho his reviews are highly bias but who cares, like his review of skyrim was making it seem godlike but the game itself is as repetitive as oblivion was, they expanded the world a little bit and added a few minor changes but the game is essentialy still the same..but anyway i think SW kinect is hilarious, i am a die hard fan of star wars..but not of darth wader, star wars needs a bit more quality humor and this made me laugh my ass off, it deviated a shit ton from the franchise but meh who cares im a die hard fan of humor too ^^..dont take it so hard people..i think han solo always had it in him to be a rock star and now he is and thats awesome..and the always underrated storm troopers stealing the dance floor, awesome too..and all you liars and bastards pretending you never wanted to see the princess dance..how dare you lie so much..at any rate its a blast it seems, either play it or dont but really a whole forum segment dedicated to hating the thing..lets grow up shall we..

    Well I'd say I'm a fan of Star Wars, grew up on the originals and wasn't impressed with the new ones. Not like they ruined my life or scarred me or anything. Like someone said there has been silly stuff released with the SW IP since day one. It does seem however that since his movies were criticized Lucas is in intent on turning the series into a mockery since he was butthurt about the reception of the movies.

    I think what makes people the most mad is the lack of any good SW games since KOTOR. KOTOR2 was uncomplete (another instance where obsidian was rushed), and the Force Unleashed was a disappointment (IMO), and every tells me the Old Republic would be a good single player game if you didn't have to pay $15 a month to play it. I think the last good game I played was the RTS one, but it wasn't anything exceptional.

    On an unrelated note, have there been any good Kinect games or is it just an attempt to compete with the Wii?

    you are right, the lack of GOOD SW games is quite disturbing.

    I am missing games like Kotor, Jedi knight 2 outcast and the various X-Wing, Tie-Fighter flight simulators which have been really well made for their time.

    There have been many good SW games in the past. But recently ... not so much.

    Hell yeah man, I loooved X-wing and Tie-fighter and played them for years. It's amazing they came out in what, 93-94? Looking back I think they would get kind of boring now but as a teenager they were awesome.

    a flight-sim in the star wars universe could be still entertaining I think. If done well.
