Speak of the devil... I just beat this game today (PC version). It is one of the best FPSs that I have EVER played... the lightsaber battles are the coolest. Pretty graphics and great sound too! (It is damn tough too) :D

Ahhh - makes my decision of buying the Xbox better and better. Glad I decided to pass on upgrading my PC - again - just to play the latest and greatest game.

Play Jedi Outcast w/o Mouse & Keyboard? Bleh!

I tried Obi-wan, it just doesn't work with a pad

I agree. Swinging a lightsaber is much easier for me with an analog stick on a pad.

How on earth would you put ALL those force powers on a pad, though?? There aren't enough buttons / combinations.

I'll buy this one for sure, if only to see Kyle on my Sony WEGA with 5.1 sound.

Well, they managed to get the force powers to work in Obi Wan with the triggers. Perhaps a similar method, but using both of the triggers? This would make for 12 different face button combinations. The other option is to do like Azurik did, and make you use a combination of buttons in conjunction with the force trigger. Like I said before though-as long as they use the basic controls from Halo and not Goldeneye, I'll be happy.

I think whoever is responsible for Obi-Wan should be shot in the face. The game is absolute shit! The graphics look like it would run on a PS1 and the gameplay sucks. I can't believe how shitty it runs on the X-Box though, I mean there are times when the game gets down to 10 FPS, unbelievable. The levels are very poorly designed also. It's as if LucasArts whipped the game up in a day. They should stick with getting help from other developers like Raven and Factor 5.
