Battlefront II Q&A on ControllerFreaks.com talks with Shara Miller of
LucasArts about the Star Wars combat game: "Because most gamers arenít as

have a ranking system, Chat room, Clan system or anything else you would

will have. The expanded MMOFPS version of the game, that we will finish
several months after the Free Version, will be a full MMOFPS and have
everything I mentioned above and more."

|They don't think players have the ability to maneuver in space eh? Doesn't Lucas Arts remember a little series called X-Wing? I don't recall being able to tap a button and doing instant barrel rolls or double-backs.
Kids these days!!!
