Star Wars Battlefront Launch Trailer Is Glorious Fan Fiction



Hoth Leia versus Boba Fett! Vader tossing his saber at Duros! Palpatine walking into battle on Endor! This is the sort of thing we imagined when playing with the Kenner toys – but even the rich kids never had this many in the box.

Yes, it’s fan indulgence that might not have made sense in the saga itself, but isn’t that why we have games like this? Let me play as a Battle Droid murdering Gungans, and record-setting sales might just be in the cards.
