Fellow LaserBrains, Disney and Therefore EA Too, Dislike Many of the Original Light Side Characters.

Fellow LaserBrains, Disney and Therefore EA Too, Dislike Many of the Original Light Side Characters...

First off, the audio and visuals in this game are utterly amazing...
So to all of creative artists for SWBF2 (and SWBF1) I say, Job Exceedingly Well Done !!

Next... that so called ‘Saber Rework Patch’ that is supposed to come out whenever in the future... won't change the conclusion written below and here is why...

As most of us know, Disney bought STAR WARS from George Lucas for 4 BILLION dollars… not Thousand, or Million but BILLION… that’s $4,000,000,000.00.

Disney is making SW themed parks which are scheduled to open in the summer and fall of 2019... and
Disney has made and is making new Star Wars franchise movies… with their (Disney's) new agenda in place…

And one thing is for sure and has been very apparent… Disney dislikes (basically hates) some of the original Light Side characters now...

Has anyone been to Disneyland within the last 4+ years...

Vader, Chewie, R2D2, C3PO, Bobba Fett, Storm Troopers, Millennium Falcon, Tie-Fighters, X-Wings, AT-ATs are THE MAJOR STAR WARS Icons highly featured, pushed and keeping Star Wars 'alive' at the Disney Parks...

But who is (and has been for years) missing from the Disney’s Theme Parks…

Original/Older Luke Skywalker, Original/Older Han Solo, Original/Older Princess Leia - for most part, Original/Older Yoda- for most part, Original/Older Lando Calrissian - for most part...

NOW LOOK AT THIS GAME… STAR WARS BATTLEFRONT 2… FROM THE LIGHT SIDE...

Original Skywalker is garbage

Disney wants many of us to forget and move past the Original Luke Skywalker… basically ‘forget about him.” Look what they did to Luke Skywalker in The Last Jedi… no final climatic action sequence for Skywalker… all he got was a garbage scene which revealed he was ‘astro/force-projecting’ himself in front of Kylo… then POOF… we soon discovered Luke Skywalker ‘crossed over to the other side’… what boring, passive anti-Skywalker garbage. But Vader, on the other hand in Rogue 1… Vader received his climatic scene of sabering and forcing the Rebellion.

Original/Older Han Solo is garbage…

Look sadly, even Harrison Ford came to hate/dislike his Han Solo character a long time ago… so much so that Ford has repeatedly publicly stated he was glad Solo FINALLY DIED. What a ‘yuts’ Ford became regarding his Solo. Ford literally became sick and tired of his Han Solo character through the years. I am not talking about when Solo was originally planned to die at the end of the Empire Strikes Back either… that is not what I am talking about here.

RE… Young Han Solo

Disney loves young Solo because again from their perspective… “It’s time to forget about the Original/Older Han Solo. I mean, that Solo died, so just forget about him and even Harrison Ford is glad that his Solo finally died.”

Young Princess Leia is garbage

Disney loves young Leia due to possible movie spin-offs and Disney must be respectful to Original/Older Princess Leia due to the recent and still very fresh in the Princess Leia fans' memory regarding Carries Fisher's death in real life.

Young Yoda is garbage

Original/Older Lando Calrissian is garbage

But I will say this… Disney likes Billy Dee Williams to an extent and he (Williams) is still alive too.

RE… Young Lando Calrissian

Disney loves young Lando CArlrissian… I mean they approved of and are okay with Lando having a ‘thing’ for a machine/bot. What a bunch of garbage… I bet Billy Dee Williams never thought his Lando character backstory ever consisted of having a ‘thing’ for a machine/bot. What a bunch of garbage and it taints the Original/Older Lando Carlrissian character.

Rey is garbage… yet in many ways ‘stronger’ than Luke Skywalker... in this game.

NOW THINK OF THE DARK SIDE IN THIS GAME…

In comparison to the Light Side (above)… generally speaking…

The Dark Side dominates and is overpowered... while the Light Side has generally been garbage.

And so we look back to Disneyland within the last 4+ years...

Vader, Chewie, R2D2, C3PO, Bobba Fett, Storm Troopers, Millennium Falcon, Tie-Fighters, X-Wings, AT-ATs are THE MAJOR STAR WARS Icons highly featured, pushed and keeping Star Wars 'alive' at the Disney Parks...

Disney and their agenda dislike many of the Original Light Side Character… and so does THEIR game (SWBF2).

Look at and think back ALL of the Forum Posts requesting Light Side buffing... which is CLEARLY OBVIOUS regarding the Light Side to most of us who are reasonable and level headed…

And yet EA's (Disney's) silence regarding any real fixes/buffing/balancing are deafening.

Yes, Disney and therefore EA too, dislike many of the Original Light Side Characters... what a shame.

But there will always be one 1 Original Star Wars Trilogy (A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi) that STARTED IT ALL.

    Of course Mickey is going to push the characters that they introduced.

    The OT is what the adults grew up on, Disney's target demo (kids) is growing up with the new characters.

    At least it is something different than the usual debates where we can type out everyone's responses for them ;)

  • ...what ?
  • Forcing bad changes on good things has been known to be a good idea where absolutely nothing will go wrong.

    In other news, it's extremely alarming how grown people, legitimate adults, think that the Green New Deal is a perfectly good, let alone sane idea.

    See where I'm going with this?

    Heart of darkness beateth, Ultima
    Iron enigma treateth, Ultima
    Shielding light retreateth, Ultima
    Hydaelyn defeated. Ah, Ultima


    The fact is that if you're running it's because you suck, and the game shouldn't pander to players who suck.

  • I was at DisneyWorld 2 weeks ago. Disney doesn't hate the OT lightside characters. You can still get merch featuring all of the OT LS characters (my wife got a Leia magicband and I got a Luke magicband.) Chewy, Vader, Boba Fett, R2, 3P0, Kylo, Stormtroopers & Phasma are featured in the shows because they are all in costume (they don't have to try to find people to play the parts that look like the character like they would have to for Luke, Han, Lando and Leia.)

    The Star Wars fireworks/projection show heavily featured all of the OT characters, so I didn't see any hatred towards those characters on Disney's part.

    This makes me ashamed to be human. Unwilling? No worries, here’s some cash for your lack of effort.

  • Does the OP want Disneyland mascots wearing big Luke, Han and Leia heads?

    I guess that's a matter of personal preference, but just seems like a weird thing to focus on.

  • It makes sense that they would want to insert younger talent into the spotlight. They are just doing a bad job of making the transition.

    All they needed to do was give Luke, Leia, and Han epic deaths in TFA and we would have been happy

    That is easily explained... have you noticed that all of those characters are either not human or have masks on? People find that more interesting than human faces. Have you noticed that the human heroes of the sequel and prequel trilogies are also not on that list?

    Young Yoda? When has Yoda ever been portrayed as young?

    You do realize that Disney and EA have zero control over the development of this game? DICE are the ones who develop the game.

    LOL no. Luke is weak sure, but Han is amazing, Rey is amazing, Leia is amazing, Lando is amazing, and Yoda is amazing in GA but weak in HvV.

  • Meesa lost? Not gonna go to Disney to stand in line all day for one ride. What a scam. Can't wait to see them butcher xmen and deadpool!

    Alright folks I'm going to go ahead and lock this, I can't see this thread going down well and it's already starting to go off topic with comparisons and discussion of politics which isn't appropriate for this forum. This really isn't the place for those kinds of discussions.
