That was an awesome part of BF2, I HIGHLY doubt they'll leave it out
The Mandalorian Wars were a series of massacres that masked another war, a war of conversion. Culminating in a final atrocity that no Jedi could walk away from… save one.

The only problem I had with it, was the fact everyone just abused The Force and kept everyone down. So it was really unbalanced for the more ranged normal chars, I get that its force user vs non but its a game...so should be balanced.

The Revan novel created a great deal of plot holes, while also destroying previous canon. But not the time for this discussion.

Personally, I never really played online on BF2, but from playing single-player, I agree with Wolf that the missle spam and Force spam was a bit much. Even though I was doing it.

If they do a hero mode in this game, I think they need to leave (most) Jedi out. Anakin, Obi-Wan, Luke, Vader, Maul, and Dooku. No others. There are plenty of Jedi-related games that Jedi fans can play. The Jedi characters make winning far too easy. The heroes should be (except for the aforementioned Jedi) only blaster-users like: Han, Leia, Commander Cody, Captain Rex, Boba Fett, Jango Fett, IG-88, Cad Bane, etc. This makes it more challenging to a certain extent because they don't have any skills that put them over the generic troops, but it gives the pleasure of playing a named character.

I played a little bit of online with one of my guilders a couple weeks back, we got nostalgic

To be honest, Jedi aren't OP in online, I went round as Leia most of the time, whenever Jedi jumped they were more susceptible to shots, one precise shot took them out. Hell, my guilder was an engineer and one shot palpatine :/
They're not too op, it's like imagining a sentinel vs a sorcerer, the sentinel is inherently easier to win with, but if the sorc is smart, they can take them out with ease. Given they have luck and fate on their side too, if both played right its always close.
Jedi are Op in BF2 to the extent they're easy to play, that's it...

Not True, the ranged are the most OP for me.
They're normal troopers with an edge, awesome.
Heroes with sabers have to be in the middle of battle to be effective, and it wears them down.
Staying alive as vader in the Tantive IV quest long enough to kill leia with a force choke was easy, close hallways, but staying alive as Skywalker In Knightfall? Bleh.

Now to wait for a kotor 3 exploring the revan novel whilst actually making surik look like revans equal *cough*
Perhaps thisis what you're looking for?

Although Surik is not Revan's equal. Which is why she doesn't look like it in the novel. Which is canon.

No, forcibly balanced games are boring. Make the weapons powerful and interesting, and not quite too hard to abuse skillfully. I hate it when a game is so "well balanced" for multiplayer that it becomes uninteresting and pointless to even have different weapons.

One of the best FPS games I've ever played was Halo: CE. You constantly agonized over what weapon to keep and which one to leave behind, because they were all different and interesting, and powerful under the right conditions. But you always kept the pistol. It was that good.

Same thing with the Force, you use it because it's your edge. Jedi can smack you down and lay waste to everyone at close range, but it requires skill to execute those maneuvers. A good player can take down Jedi with snipers and rockets easily.

HALLEJUAH!!!! THESE PEOPLE ARE OUR SAVIORS!!!!

Thank god someone has the initiative to do this. I had high hopes for BF3 (as well as First Assault and 1313), and seeing those games go in the can was heartbreaking. Finally, it may not be BF3, but at least it's something!
