    If i could choose any studio and any genre for Star Wars?… Give Naughty Dog the Chance to do the Uncharted Star Wars game, and give Platinum Games the change to do an action adventure of their own. Platinum games would make an AMAZING action adventure game if they could do a Jedi based game or another type of genre.

    Imagine the world where Microsoft got Star Wars license, as they bought Obsidian and Obsidian developed KOTOR2. So they make KOTOR3.

    That "ping" sound at 33:42 when Greg speculates Disney's decision to pull EA's contract. Was that planned? Because if not, that timing was incredible. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2E_1Uan4Ec&t=33m41s

    Fuck yes, Gary! Hit the nail on the fucking head, right there. I've been saying that for years, now. Well said!

    Okay so here's my closer your eyes sort of pitch (dont cuz you're reading)

    Imagine a star wars game, that's set in a time when the Jedi order was still in its infancy, where different factions and alien species were still colonizing new worlds. And imagine you can play as one of those factions. Imagine a large map of an entire planet where you can build settlements, cities, armies, fight other factions trying to claim the planet. Imagine giant armies fighting each other and you control it all.

    Honestly no single company should have an exclusive deal for Star Wars. You can't trust any of them to deliver a large number of high quality games instead let them apply for a single game in the universe at a time. Give one to ubisoft, give one to Activision Blizzard, give one to Obsidian/Microsoft, give one to a couple smaller indie devs, give one to fucking CD Projekt Red for fuck's sakes. Hell they could make a Stellaris/Paradox partnership to make a Star Wars game based upon the Stellaris systems.

    My favourite game of all time is Star Wars Galaxies, It had everything from exploring, Space flight, Build the ships, If the ship was big enough you could decorate the insides, Decorate 1 of a plethora of houses with nicknack's from all over the galaxy, Music was amazing, Sound effects were on point, PvP was amazing, Chasing a target as a bounty hunter across multiple planets was exhilarating, Tons of instances/dungeons, Great stories, Even graphically it was pretty, It got axed because of the very hollow The Old Republic which was published under EA before they got the exclusive rights of Star Wars and since then I have hated them with a passion, Star Wars Galaxies was the pinnacle of gaming joy in my eyes and they ended it to make way for a piece of sh%%.

    EA should sell off everything but there sports titles because let’s be honest, that’s all they really care about & the sports fans are dumb enough to keep buying them. Also, shame on Disney for partnering with EA

    The better comparison is the Warhammer 40K universe and how IT is being treating a thousand times better. Small developers making these amazing games under that license, meanwhile EA wasting the Star Wars licence trying to make a FIFA Star Wars. Disney needs to take away that license and open it up to the smaller developers so good games can be made.

    I’ve been saying this exact same thing for years now. Let developers and publishers from all walks of life have a jab at Star Wars like marvel is doing with multiple publishers.

    With Disney star wars I have enjoyed 3 of the 4 movies (rogue one being my favorite and last Jedi being the one I enjoyed the least) so not a bad track record. However, with the EA star wars games I didn't enjoy either one of those games….very disappointing, would have bought star wars uncharted day one.

    EA is one of the biggest games companies in the world financially but for quality of games they are worse than allot of small indy devs, they just churn out uninspired trash these days.

    Would it not have made more sense for disney to have a licensing scheme similar to what Epics games, crytek do with their game engines? How many Star wars games would we get if it was that open?

    What if EA is intentionally sabotaging the games to get out of the deal? Imagine the contract had a clause that EA has to pay a specific amount no matter how the games are doing.
