    One of the devs said(something to the effect of) there was a legal issue with Alec’s estate.. told this to a former forum members face, in fact. Many of us are hoping Old Ben doesn’t get the snub again.

    I remember they also said Ben would be too similar to Luke... you know, because he’s a lightsaber user. :s

    Rebels nulls that devs words.

    Even if that were the case (and it is pure speculation at this point because they do not communicate effectively), Obi Wan Kenobi (Old Ben version) is in their game Galaxy of Heroes. It is not a strikingly similar rendition of Alec Guinness per se, but they were able to make it work on some level. So, they can dispense with the evasive pleasantries.

    Probably all that needs to be said, but I’ll elaborate anyway. ;)

    As excited as we all are for the clone Wars new heroes coming down the pipeline, I couldn’t help feeling slightly saddened that this meant Old Ben would most likely not be coming. But there is still hope... and that would be in the form of Old Ben skins. With the addition of young Han and Lando, there must be Old Ben skins for the PT Kenobi. He is a must include now that these skins have been released and depict entirely different looking and sounding heroes of the same name.

    We cannot have PT Obiwan without his wiser mentor, later in life self. Old Ben is the last of the OT main characters not in the game. Alec’s depiction of the former master, is still the only portrayal to earn an Oscar and Golden Globe nomination. The noble sacrifice of giving own life so Luke could continue his journey, is one of the most iconic moments in movie history. Many among us wish to hear the kind old man’s voice and wise words while battling The Empire.

    Old Ben and Farmboy Luke on Mos Eisley... The old man taking on Vader in HvV. These are the things I hope to be able to see and play out in this game. Two skins are all that is needed to give Sir Alec his proper due that should have been in the first game. Even if he had a love/hate for his character, most fans do not.

    "You wont be winning this time, Darth."
    "Not bad for an old man like me."
    "You shouldnt have left your guard down like that."
    "You have some skill it seems."
    "Become one with the force."
    "Nice try, but that wont get you anywhere."
    “The Emperor, we’d best be cautious”
    "I must face darth vader myself"
    "I feel his presence ... I must face darth vader"
    "A great distubance in the force”

    The statement you just wrote is a good enough reason for me to believe that something would be coming.

    Who’s to say after CW main highlights (October-January), they don’t do a Skin Drop for Luke and other heroes/villains lacking skins!?

    That was my point. I don’t have any doubt that they’ll be made/deployed. I’m not even worried. It’s never been about “If”, but “When”.

    Just my two cents/Opinion.

    My last comment still stands in my mind. 100%. With these devs and this game it’s not about if, it’s when. Which is why the Soon.TM meme is so popular lol. <3

  • Hopefully they add Old Ben, Old Han, and Old Luke. That would be awesome.

    Yes, I agree to all skins mentioned.

    Hahah is that the blu ray final version? Cause that one is the best in regards to stupidity but obviously the worst in regards to being awesome. OG all the way otherwise.

  • Make it happen DICE. This would be EPIC.

  • Who would voice Ben tho :(
    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 love obi wan, one of the best moments in my opinion from clone wars has to be when adI gallia get's killed by savage and he is force to watch helplessly, hopefully we get to meet her cousin stass allie in this new season and they explore how she got her seat on the council, be amazing of they bring her to the game for her clone legion.

    Again, we deserve an awesome skin drop with actual wanted and requested skins. Princess & Old Leia, Scoundrel & Old Han, Farmboy/Bespin/Pilot/Old Luke, Hooded/Cyborg Maul, Battle-Damaged Vader, among many others... and including the one and only Old Ben Kenobi. Most people's introduction to the character was conspicuously absent last game, and he needs to make it in eventually. Here's hoping!
    "I felt there was a large amount of human chauvinism... also I felt very bad that at the end the Wookie didn't get a medal also... oh, all the people got medals but the Wookie who had been in there fighting all the time, didn't get any medal, and I thought that was an example of Anti-Wookie discrimination." - Carl Sagan on the subject of Star Wars
    He knew.
