SPECULATION Do you think the Bad Batch series works better as a sp/co-op video game?

    You have your Brute, Sniper, Tech, Leader classes all in one group.

    "Members of Bad Batch — a unique squad of clones who vary genetically from their brothers in the Clone Army — each possess a singular exceptional skill, which makes them extraordinarily effective soldiers and a formidable crew. In the post-Clone War era, they will take on daring mercenary missions as they struggle to stay afloat and find new purpose."

    That description to me just screams video game potential. I wonder how that's going to work as a 24 min per episode, though.

    Well, that would be like republic commando, except with more powerful and unique abilities.
    And that wouldn’t be a bad thing!

    Yeah, I'm almost thinking something like Left 4 Dead.

    The genre is expanding a bit (Vermintide gave it the dark fantasy treatment) so I could see it working well with Star Wars. You and your squad mowing down legions of droids, with special droids (droidekas, commandos, etc) posing bigger special threats.

    I have really mixed feelings about a Bad Batch show. I liked the arc in TCW, but I feel like this show is playing it safe. I'd prefer another game tbh.

    But maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised, and I'll love it and I should just be grateful we are getting more new content at all lol

    Yes, 100%. I didn’t really enjoy the Bad Batch arc in The Clone Wars and I’m not very enthusiastic about the fact that they’re getting an entire series dedicated to them. Now that you’ve proposed the idea of it being a game instead, though... I’d be really into that. I think it would work WAY better as a video game than it would as an entire series.
