Please Bring Back Star Wars Space Shooters - Kotaku Australia. Thanks Darth Guybrush.
"Hello. Are you a Disney executive, passing a few minutes downtime between acquisitions and layoffs? Maybe you work at EA, and are trying to work out how to salvage your brand's Star Wars efforts after the disaster that is Battlefront II. Here's a free idea: make another space shooter."

Starfighter assault in SWBF2 is pretty fun for about 4-5 hours, then it just falls flat. The mechanics are well done, very arcade, but there's not enough depth. I would totally play a dedicated game that really expands on the mechanics, with more players, bigger maps, more depth etc.

I briefly entertained the notion of a Tie Fighter remake with those graphics, but I think I blacked out for like an hour because of sheer excitement, so I don't do that anymore.

XWVM won't be nearly that nice, but it's a huge update to the original X-Wing game. They'll be converting Tie Fighter next.

Ok how about 100 star wars ships spawn in a galaxy and... no.

Tie Fighter in HD/Elite dangerous quality graphics should be fine. Add co-op and I'd pay 60 bucks for it.

(Regarding SW:Battlefront II) Frostshite is a horrible piece of shit engine that makes games look artificial as if you were playing on a movie set instead of the actual location. -CJ_Parker

Yeah, a new SW space shooter would mean you have to pay for each and every shot you take, as well as your shields.

I can't believe nobody thought of this before!

No Lootboxes, so no dice.

That being said, the XWVM mod for X-Wing is going to make another run through a must-play. They are making tremendous progress, and the game is looking fantastic.
