Although you could argue that saying "The Good Three" versus "The Sucky Three" but then people would bring up that the third movie in each series is not the same quality as to lump it with the other two. Now we got a seventh and everything is higgly piggly!
You're right, the third in the prequel trilogy was worse than the other two, and the third in the original trilogy was better than the other two.

I'll let myself out.

Seriously though, I do like Sith the least of the prequels and Jedi the most of the OT. I know that's not the majority view, and I'm not a hipster who hates everything "everyone else" likes. That's just my personal preference.

Anyway, you do have a good point about "the first three movies". It's definitely confusing, although the new trilogy and Episode 7 don't really add to or remove from the confusion as far as I can see (at least until people start saying "the last three movies").

Yeah I'll wait for the Full Trilogy game. They always do one. But when they do, I'm there. I love playing these in co-op.

Really? That's sucks from a standpoint of not using anything from the first 3 movies to improve Battlefront.


Everything in Battlefront is from the first three movies... maybe one day someone will make Episode I, II, and III, but I'm quite certain there has never been any made before New Hope.

I meant episodes 1-3

Some day, God willing, somebody will come up with a better way to make everyone understand when they're talking about "The first three movies" whether they are by numerical order or chronological (by release date, that is). Until then confusion and arguments rein. Although you could argue that saying "The Good Three" versus "The Sucky Three" but then people would bring up that the third movie in each series is not the same quality as to lump it with the other two. Now we got a seventh and everything is higgly piggly!

It was quite comical hearing the excuse for EA not having any force awakens DLC for Battlefront. According to EA they're not allowed to mix old with new because of the contract with Disney, you have to remain in cannon for the period of time the game is set in.


Because Luke fighting Vader on Hoth was in the movie.

Um try at least 6 years nin. the new star wars is not due out until 2 years from now. so do the math.

And yea, these are a lot of fun especially Coop.


2017 and 2019.

Rogue One is this xmas, and episode 8 (about to start shooting) is xmas 2017. Then another anthology in 18, and episode 9 in 19 (barring any more delays).
