I am a huge fan of the Star Wars series! I would love to see a game that would cover all of the Star Wars life experience. The game I am thinking of is a game where you can choose between a Hero(Jedi or Sith), a soldier, a smuggler(Rebel smuggler or Bounty Hunter), or a citizen in the Star Wars universe. Doing this would give a wide range of different stories and tasks within the game!

If you chose a hero's life, it wouldn't be a hero that already exists in the Star Wars series, but you create your own Jedi or Sith from the ground up. You will be able to choose what kind of hero you will be. A light hero has the choice of a Knowledgeable Jedi where his knowledge of the force far exceeds other Jedi's, or a skilled Jedi were you will learn battle moves and have unique skills that no other hero will posses, but your knowledge of the force will be limited. The same goes for the Dark Side. You start as a youngling and train under either the one and only Master Yoda, or the feared Sith Lord, Lord Sidious. As you begin your training, you become stronger and more knowledgeable of the force with each passing day. After years and years of training, (Which of course will be simulated once you are able to do all of the basic abilities of your hero) your hero will be assigned to missions, battles, or negotiations by your superior hero's such as the Jedi Council, to go protect planets from invasions, or Lord Sidious, to produce fear and terror around the galaxy.

If you chose a soldiers life, you would start out as a rebel or storm trooper. After several missions and battles, you would eventually work up to being commander of your squadron and command your troops to victory. Once you have mastered being a commander of a Garrison in battle, you will earn the badge of Special Forces. Once you have made the Special Forces, you will learn advanced battle moves and begin to go on secret op's that impact the war heavily. Along the way you would be obtaining better armor, skill tactics, weapons, and experience.

If you chose a smugglers life(Rebel smuggler or Bounty Hunter), you would start out as a young boy with his mentor, learning the ways of the universe by his side. As the years pass, your mentor dies and leaves behind his legacy as a smuggler to you. To survive in the Universe as a smuggler, you will have to look for bounty and go track them down for money in return. Tracking bounty is not as easy as it sounds. You must travel to planets and talk to several people to find the location of your target and once you find him/her, you must be able to kill them or capture them. Killing them is easier then capturing them, but if you kill them, they are not worth nearly as much. If they escape or kill you instead, you will have to track them again. Different targets could include citizens on various planets, high valued targets within heavily guarded capitals, or legendary hero's in exile on a distant planet. The life of a smuggler is not for the weak and uncommitted. Only the strong will be able to track down the bounty.

If you chose the life of a citizen, it would be a more relaxed way to live your Star Wars life. As a citizen, you could travel the universe freely without any bounty hunter chasing you or worry of being sent into battle. That is as long as you stay out of trouble. If you stir up trouble on a populated planet, the smugglers will be looking for you. As a citizen, you would have the ability to purely go and enjoy each planet in the Star Wars universe and cause a little trouble if you wish. But you must collect resources from around the universe so you could fly in space because nobody gives you resources as a citizen. You must earn them yourself.

Basically this version of Star Wars would offer limitless adventure and outcomes. You could play this game over and find 4 different and amazing stories within one game. Thank you for your time in reading this and I hope you find this idea as interesting as I do!

i would just like The Old Republic to be released on PS4 and XB1, Star Trek Online showed that it can work

I'd do things for a remaster of KOTOR and a finished version of KOTOR 2.

Either way, good idea! Can't see it happening though, not when EA know they can make money through drip fed content now.

My Star Wars game pitch?

You play a midichlorian and you need to find other midiclorians, collect them and eventually ruin the franchise by spawning Anakin Skywalker. Just kidding.

I'd love, personally, something like X-Wing vs Tie Fighter but with enhanced visuals and VR support. The VR mission on Battlefront was just such wish fulfillment for me in an X-Wing, it would just be great. Throw in a good campaign and boom, great game.

Now I may be an idiot, but there's one thing I am not sir, and that sir, is an idiot

Are there any Star Wars turned-based RPG? It would be great if there was! It should be based on A New Hope.

My favorite line in MegaMan Battle Network 3:

-Lan Hikari: "Let's do this, MegaMan! Battle routine, set!!"

-MegaMan.exe: "Execute!"

-BubbleMan.exe: "Blubbbbb!"

@Octane what word, midiclorians the microscopic lifeforms that in a high enough concentration allow people to connect their inner force with the galactic force and explains why not every person in the galaxy is going around force pushing people?

@FullbringIchigo @Octane, or space herpes as they are more affectionately known.

Now I may be an idiot, but there's one thing I am not sir, and that sir, is an idiot

FullbringIchigo

@Rudy_Manchego i feel that most people just hate on it because they either misunderstood what was said in Episode 1 or are just OT fanboys who hate anything that isn't the OT or the old EU

of course there are some who think it's just a dumb idea and i can see why but i like that they gave a reason as to why not everyone can use the force, it makes the Jedi seem more special that way

i only seem to find comfort in the darkness

Octane

@FullbringIchigo It's... fantasy, it's ''magic'', it doesn't need an explanation. So it's the latter, I think it was dumb idea

Besides, it still doesn't really explain anything at all. How do the midi-chlorians influence the force? How does a Jedi ''use'' these midi-chlorians to influence the force? Why the specific numbers? Why anything basically. It was completely unnecessary IMO.

@FullbringIchigo I'm not as horrified about the concept as many but I think that giving a real world reason behind anything mysterious ruins a bit of the mystery.

It is a bit like explaining Neo in the Matrix or immortals in Highlander. Any explanation can never satisfy those people who have already built it up in their minds.

Now I may be an idiot, but there's one thing I am not sir, and that sir, is an idiot

Rudy_Manchego

@Tasuki Yeah but only retconned out after the fact. Have you seen the Directors cut of Highlander 2? I havent as can't find in UK but have heard it removes all the alien stuff forced in by the studio.

Now I may be an idiot, but there's one thing I am not sir, and that sir, is an idiot

Tasuki

@Rudy_Manchego You know, I have never actually seen it, but I heard the same thing. I have seen all of the Highlanders except that one too. Only ones though that I hae seen more then once though and can remember a good deal about is Highlander and Highlander 3.

@Octane they don't influence it at all they allow you to commune with it when you have a high enough concentration

basically they are like a Wi-Fi router acting as a bridge between you and what you are connecting too

@Rudy_Manchego yeah i can see that point it didn't need explaining but like i said it does make the force users stand out a bit more and make them special and also explains why characters like Han can't use it after all if the force is in all living things there had to be a reason why only a select few could use it didn't there?

i only seem to find comfort in the darkness

Octane

@FullbringIchigo I get that, but how does that work? If they want to pretend to be sci-fi and explain everything, please do so, but don't come up with this terrible excuse. It's like they're just moving the goalposts. ''The force isn't magic, because midi-chlorians'', yeah, but how? That explanation is as good as saying that some people can use the force and others can't.

Octane

FullbringIchigo

@Octane from what i understand it was better explained in the final few Clone Wars episodes but as the UK never got the final Clone Wars season i don't know what was actually said
