They've been working on finding someone to develop it or so it seems. Although I hope it's not spark unlimited. Legendary has many of the problems that the guy listed. Thanks for the video, rose my hopes. Some of you guys here should apply and make sure the game gets good.
I have not been sure about a Battlefield 3. Back in Star Wars: Republic Commando there were tons of petitions asking for a patch to fix a bug and add new maps, that never happened even though Lucas Arts did respond to the petition. The community then had to take on their insanely confusing editor and make maps themselves.
In Star Wars: Battlefront 2 we have been asking for a Battlefield 3 since as long as I can remember. I don't think its going to happen, Lucas Arts is really good at ignoring their fans. Especially when they give you a game and don't offer any further support.
Well, all of the games that have came out since BF 2 have been pretty messed up (any PSP game for examples). Also, it seems that many video game creators are going out of business while creating crappy games. My hope is that they will realize they would make boatloads more if they made the good games again and not this "the force unleashed" crap.
It isn't Lucasarts' fault if the games that are delivered to them suck, but what does matter is what they ask the companies to deliever.
