Space Combat on Rails... is STUPID !!!

TIE Fighter was such a great game... this is not.
Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed.

Wow, thank you for bringing this to our attention. That has never been brought up before.

On a less sarcastic note Bioware has made it known that, despite the overwhelming outcry, they will be sticking to their guns with the space combat model. They've stood firm on that since way back in the earliest glimpses of the game when the protesting began. It's unfortunate, but yep... space combat on rails. On the bright side it isn't forced upon you in any way, though I do not think that is any comfort to pilots from SWG.

Remember when Luke Skywalker was flying his X-Wing fighter all over the place, doing lots of loops and barrel rolls, making full use of his 3D environment to blow up the Death Star? And not just flying down a trench avoiding turrets and TIE Fighters? Me either.
CE VIP Remember when this was a big deal?

where have you been? its be known for a while that BW has been working on new space project for sometime now.

the current space on rails is fine for what it was meant to be, a side thing, not a main part of the game.
can't wait for this game to come out!

Oh? Well, that's great!

And to the post about Luke in the trenches with the turrets, that is the only space battle I can recall that is linear.

It's been about a year since they said they were doing a space update. And we got HM space. They never said it was going to be vastly different. I think we already got what they were working on and ashamed to admit that was all.

About that time they also said there would be updates to the CE vendor too. And we know where that went.

Wrong on all accounts. It was less then a year ago and I believe it was in a video interview not to long ago. I will post a link if I can find it but they in fact stated that the Super Secret Space Project was vastly different then the current space game we have and that while they cannot talk about it now they have a working iteration of it and that it is spectacular. It was also plainly stated that the HM space missions was NOT the SSSP.

This was posted on November, 29th 2012 which if you do your math correctly is just under 3 months ago.

They think the armour models are spectacular too .....

Super secret space project is probably putting spikes and antenna all over the PC ship's.
