None of this is any consequence though because it's Star Wars!
If only there were a configurable bot mode...
uhh, there is? I don't know how configurable it is, as most of it was locked out in the beta, but there's definitely several different bot difficulty modes.
The original had a few maps with bots, but the vast majority were multiplayer only. I haven't heard that the new one is any different, have you?
Lol, those of us that played the beta for SWBF2 have already played at least two of the bot modes, it was under the game mode "arcade" which housed all of the bot content.
Again, most of these modes were greyed out "for launch" but the ones on offer contained a full bot mode (ie. 2 teams full of AI, for solo, co-op, or 1v1 against a friend [you and friend each on opposing teams with 15 or so other bots on each team]). There was another that was you being a hero and having a certain amount of time to get X kills. In the beta's case you played as Darth Maul and it was pretty fun for a bot mode.
Again, most of the options were greyed out, so wait for reviews or streams at launch to see the extent of it, but it seems to be launching will a full complement of ze bots.
As for the first (remake) SWBF in 2015, it didn't have any bot modes on launch, but they patched it in later on, about 3-6 months later with some of the free map packs they released. It eventually included full bots for I believe every MP map.
