    Well the Star Wars franchise has been going down the pan for years, teaming up with EA seems suitably apt to me.

    Struggle to name the last good star wars game that was not knights of the old republic 1 or 2. EA can hardly do worse than lucas arts and there friends have managed in recent years.

    I don't care who makes it now, as long as a proper successor to XvT turns up.

    I think this is chance for a EA to do what it always does - release the same game but with slightly better graphics. If they would do that with all the SW flight sims, not touch any of the story or gameplay, but just get Tie Fighter etc looking nice and working on Windows 7 they could be onto a winner.

    Just going to wait and see, although I'm also someone who wouldn't mind seeing some game refreshes :D

    Battlefront 3 would be awesome.

    "Where the exclusion of 'online-category' games leaves BioWare's Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO, however, is unknown - it's perfectly possible that the title will be allowed to wind down in favour of a reborn MMO under Disney's direction."

    I highly doubt this would happen. SWTOR is now the 2nd largest Western MMO (in terms of subscription numbers), and is making a lot of money off the Cartel Market as well. This game is making them a lot of money, and I can't see them closing it down any time soon.

    Apparently, in the conference call today, EA said BioWare is already working on a new Star Wars game.
