Here's your confirmation from the FAQ on the site:

Is Star Wars Battlefront using the same engine from an existing game?
No, the engine for Star Wars Battlefront is a brand new engine developed by Pandemic Studios.

I read this was built using the Battlefield 1942 engine. Can someone confirm this, since Battlefield 1942 is a quite enjoyable game.

When your MMORPG has better graphics then your FPS, you know there is something seriously wrong.

Better graphics? And that did what for SWG? I'd rather have fun gameplay and 'good' graphics anyday, not that I'm going to assume the Battlefront is fun, just that graphics are a nice-ity.

If Battlefronts does turn out to be more fun then SWG then I think the quote should read "When you charge your customers a monthly subscription to play your 'pretty' MMORPG but your pay once to play average graphics FPS is more fun, you know there is something seriously wrong."

September 21st...same day as the DVD trilogy comes out. Good timing. Lots of SW goodness on 9/21.

May not be the greatest grfx, but I'm still psyched for this one. With the ability to drive AT-ST's, AT-AT's and speeder bikes, how can you not?

They say on certain levels the Ewoks assist the Rebels by ambushing Imperial troops by stealing bikes, etc. But seriously, if you were a Rebel in this game wandering through a forest and you saw an Ewok...

You'd blow that furry little bastard away, right?

Maybe ahouting 'Get your own damn franchise, Chief Chirpa, you ruined a trilogy!' before clicking your blaster to, 'Fry the Muppet' setting, and ventilating Wicket on the spot.

Developers who cannot make a decent engine should just put the mouse down and walk away.

More than likely those are shots from the PS2 build which is primarily what they've been showing off so far. Doesn't make sense as I'd imagine you'd want your game to look as good as possible so why not go with the Xbox screenies at least.

Anyway, BF 1942 wasn't exactly the best looking game around when it came out yet it held everyones attention. If this is done right I imagine that will be the same case here.

Agreed. Those screenshots are not exactly terrific. Maybe they are using the Dark Forces graphics engine.
