What's your least favorite star wars video game (besides this one)

I've been a big star wars fan for a good chunk of my life and as such I have played a large variety of the video games. From the Lego franchise to the sadly failed Disney infinity series and both kotor games just to name a few I have enjoyed most titles in their own way. However my least favorite title was a bit of a shock and its name...The Force Unleashed 2. I was stunned by the first game and the unique story it had to tell and the graphics were a big jump from kotor days (not dissing on the classics) but when I started playing unleashed 2 i was severely disappointed. From the start i had all my force powers including a new one by the half way point of stage 1. By then the story felt so rushed that I realized that as a whole the game lacks locations as you visit one area twice and only briefly visit a few others. Within only what feels like a few short hours I'm already facing big bad Vader and the game is done. I felt like the only goal the development team had for this sequel was pushing the limits on graphics as it was slightly more refined than its predecessor but still lacked length and much more. What is your least favorite star wars game besides heroes and why

  • Least favorite? Of the ones I've played probably Dark Forces not because it was bad by any means but that it just doesn't hold up well to the others like Jedi Academy or The Force Unleashed
  • Star Wars Battlefront 2 (new one). Because EA
  • It's sad I was at one point contemplating getting either xbox one or ps4 for battlefront 2 alone and over the time I waited and researched I started seeing all the negative reviews and the issues it had. While I'd like to get either system in the future I'm glad it wont be for battlefront.

    Both systems are about to be replaced so you might want to just wait for the next gen consoles.

    It was cool for one play through. Then you realized it was really bad.

    I rented battlefront 1 (ps3 or ps4 version. Can't remember which)

    I got bored after about an hour. Never considered the second one

    I don't know how anyone plays a shooter on a console...

    Maybe that was part of the problem. Mainly I'm just over pvp games. I heard bf2 added a single player section but I read it was basically a joke

    KOTOR. Over-hyped, linear and boring. I didn't even finish it.
    In game name: Lucas Gregory - - - -"Whale blah grump poooop." - Ouchie

    In game guild: TNR Uprising
    I beat the REAL T7 Yoda (not the nerfed one) and did so before mods were there to help

    a better question is are there any other good sw games out there?

    and please, kotor fans, just don't.
    Maybe End Game isn't for you

    To be fair, were non-linear, open world games even a thing when KOTOR was released?

    Tie Fighter is hands down the best SW game ever (the other games from that series (Xwing, Xwing vs Tie Fighter, and Xwing Alliance were all good as well, but Tie Fighter was the best). Can still get em all from Steam.

    Rogue Leader was pretty darn good if you have a Gamecube. Rogue Squadron (its predecessor) was also very solid if you have an N64.

    Sorta feels like a hot take here. Can't argue with over hyped, since I don't know how good you expected it to be.

    Certainly don't see linear. It's less linear (especially naratively) than many games released even today. Heck, I just finished uncharted 4 (which was great), and all you do is run from point a to b and grab the ledges that are painted white.

    I missed the tie fighter type games. Did it have a story section like wing commander or was it just the combat?

    The entire "do things A, B and C before you can move on to point D" is what I mean. And it's not like I don't finish long campaign games. I have played both Baldur's Gate games all the way through, Neverwinter Nights, Starcraft I and II to completion, etc. I found KOTOR very boring after several hours. I tried to go back to it recently and find it has aged very poorly.

    There was a story component that drove all the missions. I don't remember all the campaigns, but you fought rebels, pirates, and a faction of the empire that wanted to topple palpatine. The last campaign was directed by Thrawn. At some point during the story you could become the emperors hand.

    The missions of each campaign were great because they weren't just mindless dog fighting. You had specific military objectives for each one. Stuff like "Escort a hospital frigate out of a combat zone and ensure it escapes to light speed" or "Disable the corellian corvette carrying the map of the unkown regions". If you left that hospital frigate to chase an x wing you had damaged, there was a good chance you would miss the squadron of Ywings about to launch torpedos at the frigate....

    Was really a well done strategy, flight sim.

    I've played most Star Wars games, and enjoyed most of them. About the only ones I couldn't get into are the lego versions.
