    This game isnt doing too good on Metacritic so far. http://www.metacritic.com/game/xbox-...nect-star-wars Official Xbox Magazine was especially hard on it.

    Sales are aces though. I personally enjoy the game. $#@! the reviews. SOCOM 4 got slaughtered in the reviews, and it's in my top 5 games this gen. Though this one isn't

    Sales are aces because it is bundled with the limited edition console. This game is a huge giant turd. My opinion of course

    Do you have the sales numbers handy? Edit - Oh nevermind. Apparently this game is bundled with the limited edition console.

    I hadn't seen a breakdown of the bundled sales and non bundled sales. Interesting. Well, I was just going by the sales charts that have been posted.

    I never said that all of the sales were from bundles but some of those sales definitely are. Anyway yeah the casual market is a powerful one. The Wii showed us that. Thats why MS is chasing after it.

    Maybe. I don't think the game has sold a million. Maybe half that or a little more. Still pretty good sales for a kinect title.

    You are all avoiding the elephant in the room, and thats is:

    WHY THE $#@! HAVENT WE SEEN A BATTLEFRONT 3?

    That is by far the biggets mis-step/$#@! up of any company this generation.

    Shame on you Lucasarts, shame on you.

    No Indy, No Battlefront.
    I am no longer participating in these forums, I wish all of you on the PSU Forums the best for the future.

    This game had potential, it has great art style and interesting modes and mini games but it just didn't pull it off. There was no way a Star Wars experience was ever going be relegated to an inputless motion system. Being a Jedi should have the feeling of power and control, not power and rails. There was some positive feedback on the racing and dancing parts of the game though.

    I think Starhawk is the closest thing to that we're going to see for the remainder of this gen.

    I would like to see a dedicated pod racing game on these consoles like the one on the PS2.

    I cant help but think how completely $#@!ed LucasArts management are, there 2 biggest sellers have fallen by the wayside and replaced by Nathan Drake and COD/Battlefield.

    They should get shown the door.

    Jesues they couldnt even cash in on Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

    Actually I'm glad about Nathan Drake (thats a first party Sony game anyway so I dont see how that applies) but I would gladly trade COD for Battlefront.
