    Is there going to be a phantom menace story-like game for the new AOTC movie?

    Hiya, Bob. To the best of my knowledge Lucasarts have opted not to do a Clones based game that follows the events of the movie. I think the Gameboy Advance is the only format getting a game that follows the plot & characters closely..

    The desktop consoles are seeing spin offs, games set in and around the time of Episode II (Bounty Hunter, Jedi Starfighter...etc).

    I think Bounty Hunter is going to be one the, if not the best, Star Wars based game ever. The concept is what fans have been asking for for, well, forever. I wonder if Star Wars: Galaxies will have any tie-ins?

    I think that they were thinking of making a AotC game like they did for Phantom Menace (the PC and PSX game that sucked) but I'm not sure if there are any concrete plans. They have to make one, they always do.

    They will probably make another Battle for Naboo type game, also.

    The TPM game didn't sell very well, and most people didn't like it. I think they realize that the spinoff games are much better overall.

    May LucasArts NEVER make another fighting game, shudder

    They should try to make movie based games similar to the OT SW games for the SNES. Those were great, you could control various characters, fly all the best ships, re-enact all the classic moments from the films, and each level had the little cinema sequences to move the story along. If they could just make a game like that (with updated sound and 3D graphics) I'd be one happy camper!

    Don't get me wrong, I like a lot of SW games like rogue leader, Obi-Wan, Podracer, etc, but the problem is they get so repetitive, you are either flying the whole game or controlling the same character throughout. The SNES games had a bit of variety, and that's what made them so fun!

    I think Bounty Hunter is a first person shooter too. He may not be in Clones much, but he's certainly going to be the Darth Maul of the movie, in that he has a minor role but everyone is going to think he's damn cool. [​IMG] Good of Lucasarts to exploit this...

    I hope it is a FPS. If it is, I don't know how well it will control on a console. I like to use the mouse. Wish they'd release it on the PC. . . .

    I think I remember reading somewhere that it was a third-person action shooter. Not sure though. . .

    I can deal with a third-person game. I just hope the control is along the Alice/Rune/Heretic II lines. But, of course, I like to play those with a mouse as well. I don't know how, say, Tomb Raider plays with a console controller, but its mouseless interface became unacceptable after I played better third-person games.

    Actually, why not make a first or third person game? They would just need to set them as different camera views, and people could choose which they like.

    Because the camera choice affects the gameplay, puzzles & combat? Games that offer both, like JK2, tend to keep focused on one core camera through development.

    Well what if they tried it like something like Shadows of the Empire? You could switch between 3rd and 1st in that...
