This. Just because the studio closed doesn't mean that everybody and their mother would be able to create Star Wars Games left & right. They still have to get a license to create it from Disney, ie they need Permission First

No, not even via Kickstarter as they could get tagged for Copyright Infringement or whatever

You do realize that the game (ie. software) already exists? The license, sure, but the game is written.

Ignorant. Buying the license precludes the idea of copyright issues. Pay attention.

I would not want to see SWG return.

SWG offered a lot of cool stuff but SWTOR offers some awesome combat, sure is better to fire sith lightning here than that weird blue line that sometimes did a 360 around your character.

I would like to see another Starwars MMO set in between the trilogy. I liked the empire with palpatine best, and awesome time period IMO. Plus i miss AT-AT's

Maybe factor in some of RP elements and open world of SWG with the combat and graphics of SWTOR, plus companions are pretty neat.

You can in no way compare the combat in an mmo from 2003 to an mmorpg from 2012. Just no, get out.
Apart from EMU (personally I hate) there is an NGE emu in production. http://www.projectswg.com/

But I would love to see SWG again. Nay sayers can say nay all they want.. guess what? You don't need to play it if you don't want to. Geez.

Nonsense. You need a license for the IP.. which would be in the 10s of millions just to get started (assuming Disney would even license a restart of that sorry old MMO, and why would they.. it was on it's last breath when LA/Sony pulled the plug. Let the EMUs handle the 10-20K people that would actually play it... 'course the EMUs will never leave alpha.. but they are there.

Shouldn't this belong on a SWG love thread? IF it ever happened at least make it so they fix those HORRIBLE animations. Especially of the running one. YUCK

Heh. A license was the subject being discussed. Do you feel knowledgeable in typing "Nonsense", than agreeing with the post you are quoting?
