Will get. I really hope they let the Jedi and sith be focal in this. Go back to some of the force combat styles of the original battlefront 2. It was insane how OP the non Jedi/sith became in the first one.

I already made the mistake with getting the first battlefront. Played it for a month, then never again. It looked fantastic until I realized it was a pretty empty game after playing it a couple weeks

I'm in only if it has a single player campaign of decent length, not something I will burn through in two hours. I would almost kill someone to get a modern day KotOR or The Force Unleashed

Dice doesn't have the best track record for single player campaigns. Single player campaigns in Battlefield have been garbage outside of Bad Company 1 and 2. It's so easy to tell they just took the maps, game modes, and mechanics from the multiplayer and slapped on some cutscenes.

Call of Duty and Halo do a good job of feeling like a game designed first for single player that also has great multiplayer content.

Which perfectly describes the campaign from Battlefront 1 & 2 on the old console. It kind of surprised me that people were so up in arms about it missing.

I never played the "campaign" in those games, but back in the day, I never would have enjoyed them if the whole game couldn't be played offline. To this day, that's not the case with the reboot even though they have updated the game to include some offline game modes.
