I beg to differ, everyone and their mother has heard of Tie Fighter by now.
There is a difference between "has heard of" and "wants to play". I have heard many things of Zynga games like Farmville, but boy, do i have no interest in playing this kind of game at all.

That said ... to get the money of LucasArts newest target group, you have to rape and twist Tie Fighter into a simple action-arcade game.

Thats the beauty of gaming these days, no you dont! Basically if you have a good marketing campaign with some good CGI and the full weight of a Star Wars licence behind you you can sell 1 million pre-orders without breaking a sweat! Its paradoxical, but it also happens to be true. Why do you think so many developers get away with basically taking a huge fucking dump in a retail box and still make a buck??? It can also work the other way around, making a good game, selling it to break even and then letting the game's quality do all the marketing work for you.

Good games sell thesedays. I hope that publishers eventually catch on to this....
