Bethesda + Lucas Arts: You know where this is going.

Seriously this is a team up I would love to see. An open ended, sandbox, single player RPG in the star wars universe. Hell I would even be happy if it only took place on one planet (a little disappointed though) .

Anyone else?

    Not a Star Wars fan, but I do love Bethesda. I don't see too many games that LA is involved in that were fun. KOTRO 1 and 2? That's the only Star Wars games I've ever enjoyed.

    Bethesda and someone else certainly. Ditch the Star Wars though because as much as I love the films and have even enjoyed a number of Star Wars games I'm kind of sick to death of seeing them get churned out over and over again every couple of years. New original settings get my vote.

    I see what you both are saying about star wars games usually being lack luster. However in the right hands they can be quite engaging (SW:KOTOR series). Ever since I first played galaxies I always felt Bethesda would have done a much better job with a SW sandbox. Maybe it's just me though haha.

    I definitely want to see something new from them in the near future (outside of a couple shooters).

    Don't get me wrong I know full well this would most likely never happen.

    No that may have been what he was saying but its not what I was getting at. Its simply the case that for me I no longer get excited about Star Wars games because I have seen so many of them. Some of them are good.....some of them not so good. Either way I dont care because its "just another Star Wars game". We will see another one come out within the next 5 years......and the next 5 years after that.....and so on. We will still be seeing bloody Star Wars games 50 years from now.

    So like I said it would be great to see Bethesda team up with someone......but not Lucas Arts. I think their talents would be wasted on "yet another Star Wars game" when they could team up with someone else to make something new and interesting that hasnt been done to death.

    Thought Bethesda and Interplay was still in a legal battle over this. And as far as I know Interplay is no longer the IP holder. Should also mention I want Bethesda in full control of the MMO. I don't think Interplay has the capability of making a decent fallout MMO.

    Am I wrong that the deal with Bethsoft, and Interplay was that they had to start soon? I remember reading something about that, so it would appear by the link above, interplay  started in 07 so they should still hold the license. Am I off my rocker?

  • Ditch Lucas Arts. Bethesda can easy solo. We already got our Fallout converted with Gamebryo.
