Trust me. They didn't sell "millions and millions."

I remember buying TIE Fighter when it was still brand new (yes I'm that old) and I recall seeing copy after copy float into the bargain bin over the years.

They might be great games, but they sold worth crap. Wing Commander vs Lightsaber duels? What do you think will win over fanboys?

I would love to see Space Combat done similar to EVE, actually. Yes, I love the old X-Wing, TIE Fighter, and Wing Commander games. But for large fleet engagements like we would see in this war, EVE style would be best, imo.

Also.....dont think the OP said anything about sims, wich is why i suggest a "Wing Commander" like space RPG with Star Wars skin.


Wing Commander was a straight-up space sim in the same family as X-Wing.

Freelancer comes a bit closer to RPG mechanics, but still depends on player twitch skills over in-game character stats for success.

Just what elements differentiate a "Space RPG" from a Space Combat simulation?

X-wing vs Tie Fighter and Wing Commander (the oriignal ones that is) where all Space Flight sims.

Don't get me wrong I would love to see a new X-wing vs Tie Fighter game but odds are it's not gonna happen or if it does it will be made to be more arcade like.



But we will see what they have planned for SWTOR. My money is getting some free fligth space combat before the first expansion and then some thing major 2 or 3 expansions down the line. Something sort of like EVE.
