With regards to the Space Battles TV Spot

I gotta say that I'm a bit miffed that they're using Yoda as a Ship Hero.

Considering the fact that we've never seen him dogfight or fly a regular Eta-2 (unless there's some old thing from Legends I'm not aware of). Not to mention that it seems like quite a slap in the face after they teased Obi-Wan's Delta-7 (and Obi-Wan in general) back at Star Wars Celebration.

Wouldn't it make more sense to use a Jedi/Republic character who's more known for their piloting skills like Anakin, or Plo Koon (seriously I'd take Plo over Yoda as a Hero Ship any day of the week).

Perhaps I'm just over-reacting (actually yeah, I am), so for now I'll just sit and wait in hopes that the full trailer sheds some more light on this.

What do ya'll think?
We're finally getting the High Ground man! Wooooooooo!

  • I feel this choice is the final nail in the coffin for Anakin.

    He's by far the most logical choice when discussing flying for the PT.

  • I don't mind seeing any Jedi characters as flying heroes honestly. It makes sense that they would all be good pilots. I don't want to see Yoda before characters like Anakin and Obi-Wan though, but that goes for ground combat as well.

  • Not having seen the clone wars series
    I'd almost wish they would stick strictly to the movies.
    I feel jipped we aren't gonna get obi wan or anakin in this game.
    Makes no sense whatsoever

    Just being a prequel fanboy though. I'm sure there will be oodles of OT stuff

    It doesn't bother me in the least to be completely honest. Sure, Anakin would make more sense, but just because we've never seen Yoda fighting in a starfighter doesn't mean he never did. Plus, and this is pure speculation on my part nothing confirmed, I'd imagine they'd want to only add heroes who are already in the game in the starfighter aspect.

    By this I mean, it's probable they want every Starfighter Hero to have an equivalent on the ground side of things. This does not mean, however, that the opposite is true. Not all ground heroes would or should get ship combat.
    Basically "all space heroes need to also be on the ground, but not all ground heroes need also be in space".
    This is also why I think that Poe might be a hero in the ground as well, just unannounced as of yet.

    Hmm... I feel weird, on one hand I get to play as even more Yoda! But, for them to show Maul's Infiltrator fighting Yoda's little craft instead of a new, unannounced, or more sensible given the location pairing of say... Obi-Wan's Delta craft and Jango's Slave 1, or even Anakin and Grievous's star fighters, I'm a little bummed currently. It still looks awesome, though, but I just want more new stuff.

    Really? Yoda is a hero ship? Where is anakin or obi wan? Like seriously what kind of logic are they using?
  • You know you want it. Now all we need is for Yoda to laugh after he shoots someone down

  • I am not complaining. Actually, I am suprised that Yoda got a hero ship. In the series he seemed to be not a pilot and just used his ship for transporting himself.
    I was really forwarding to Anakin's yellow interceptor which was great fun to fly 2005.

    Yoda has a ship in clone wars.
  • Yoda's Ship is in season 6 of the Clone Wars.

  • I'm happy. I'm hoping most, if not all heroes get their own ship.

    Yoda and maul are only there because they are already confirmed.

    Does seem a bit weird but possibly because he doesn't have a delta-7 (or era-2 later) like the rest of the Jedi.

    We'll still definitely see obi wan in a delta-7 and probably Anakin in a eta-2.
