And each one looks like it was directed by John Woo. Hell yeah I'd pay good money to see that!

Full Length CGI movies cost more than full-budget blockbuster films.

Think Avatar cost (wikipedia'd) $380 million for the film alone, excluding marketing.

A 10-15 minute CGI video with actors and cost, is probably about half that - when made by professionals like the people who made the videos for the promotion of this game. (Decieved, Hope, Return of the Empire etc)

Im not saying Im not all for it, but I think its unlikely due to cost alone.

Give me a good non CGI movie anyday. I mean that for scifi also. I am so against green screen that life out of everything at this point. Let the acctors have something to interact with, and be a part of. I am convinced we see so much bad acting today because not only are we asking them to know their lines, but also were some imaginary thing that they have no idea what it will look like is going to be placed. We are asking them to do to much. Plus so many producers try to save bad scripts and acting by pumping up the special effects, and forgetting everything needs to be done well for it all to work.

Meh, I'm fine with playing this game and being my own non cgi story as was intended when they made the game. Thanks for the cinematic clips however they were awesome!

So you think that Bioware paid 200MIL-ish for each of the CGI segment in this game? I find that to be a bit much. I am sure its not cheap but that seams a bit high. They are going to hit 5 mil subscribers easy. I think it could be done.

I downloaded every single one of those clips. Love them. The John Woo style action especially in Return was amazing. Mah Jedi homie Zabrak bad*** messing those Sith dudes up was pretty epic. Yeah, he lost. But it was 2v1 so he kinda had to. He took out one of them, though.

not really. Most CGI movies cost a lot because the studio making them can charge that much for them. Really they are not that expensive since you dont' have to build sets, pay for an entire film crew catering and so fourth.

You just need computers, some animators with tallent, and voice actors.

This is the reason why the market is flooded with CGI movies. Look back to the 80s and 90s back then it was rare if there was another hand drawn animated film to come out in theaters that wasn't made by Disney.

hell id be fine with bioware just making a tor movie with real actors but wouldnt mind cgi either...lucas needs to take some notes from bioware on story and plot. not to mention making cool characters (no more jar jar please...i beg u...) If this game does good enough lets cross our fingers for a tor movie somday and even more so that it doesnt bomb cause lets face it...games turned into movies have a preaty pathetic reputation.
