    I have a list of what characters I would like to see in a new instalment of Star Wars Battlefront (or as part of an expansion pack). If you have any characters that you would like to see that are not included in the list, please feel free to include them in the comments.

    Interesting, I have some other suggestions (more general):
    • Destructible environments: a certain flame trooper could actually be useful, not only that it would encourage players to think more tactically
    • A melee class of troop or something like a beast-master from RPGs
    • Ability to pick up fallen enemy weapons and retain them in an inventory
    • Environmental weapons: could take the form of a tree branch, a brick, a length of wire, a length of pipe, sand, severed limbs- consider something like Shadow of Rome (PS2)
    • An anti vehicle class with rocket launchers- I had loads of fun in the original PS2 game in confined spaces
    • Injury detail/damage to players and NPCs: items of clothing get charred or torn, limping/altered gait, tissue damage
    • A skills tree system of upgrades (did I say I like role-playing games)
    • Personalisation
    • More environmental hazards that you could exploit: indigenous species, damaged wiring, reservoir of gas, reactor

    I think the Prequels still have the most potential for game content. For character specifically, I really want to see Ahsoka, Padme, Asajj, and Cad Bane. Beyond that, I wouldn’t be opposed to seeing Mace and Jango added as well.

    From just the Original Trilogy movies, I can’t think of any other heroes for them to add. Maybe re-add Dengar, Greedo, and Nien Nunb from Battlefront 1, but I don’t really care about any of them personally. From other Age of Rebellion era stories, they could re-add Jyn and Director Krennic (not too worried about them either), add Cal Kestis and the Second Sister from Jedi: Fallen Order (I’d be okay with this, but not something high on my wishlist), or some Rebels characters (I don’t really wish to see this, because the show’s too far away from the Original Trilogy timeline-wise and I don’t want too many lightsaber characters in this era). If they wanted to do something really out of the box, I’d like Doctor Aphra and Sana Starros to be added as characters. They’d fit in well and it’d add some more female characters to the game. Unfortunately, they’ve only appeared in the books and comics so far, which really lowers their chances.

    Whereas the prequels gave the most potential for content, the sequels need the most content but they have the least potential. The game desperately needs more heroes and villains, but there’s not too many good Villains to add unfortunately. For the heroes, we could get Poe, Rose, Jannah, or Zorii Bliss, but for the villains? I don’t think Snoke or any of the Knights of Ren would work. Maybe Commander Pyre from Resistance, but he’d be just as much of a Captain Phasma clone as he is in-universe. That leaves Hux and Pryde, neither of which I think would be particularly interesting as a playable character. I guess they could just make Chewie playable in the Sequel Era (especially if we could replace him and Bossk with other characters for the Prequel maps) and add Palpatine to the First Order even if that wouldn’t really make sense.

    In conclusion, if we were to get one more hero-villain pair for each era, I’d like to see:
    • Ahsoka Tano and Asajj Ventress for the Age of the Republic.
    • Doctor Aphra and Sana Starros for the Age of Rebellion.
    • Poe Dameron and General Hux for the Age of Resistance.

    Yeah, there's definitely plenty they could do to make Poe work. Air strike, use of both blaster pistol and rifle (like Leia) since he's used both, and maybe a 'leadership' teammate buff or something. At this point, I'd be ok with a Han/Finn hybrid or whatever, I just want to be able to play as Poe. He absolutely should be in game, as he is one of the main characters, one of the main three heroes of a trilogy. And for the same reason, Padme should be in also. It would complete the main three hero theme for all three trilogies.


    Great points. I'd be ok with a General Hux. Obviously he wasn't much of a warrior but I'd be ok with it...I think that what makes sense has flown out the window once Dice decided to add the BB droids. Personally, I'd be ok with them adding heroes without a 'bad guy' counterpart...but if they just have to, I think Hux works (he'd be comparable to Director Krenic) and for Padme's counterpart, why not add the shape shifting bounty hunter (forgot her name) who tried to kill her. She had far more action on screen than Bossk, so why not.

    Though I think Poe and Padme make the most sense, I wouldn't say no to any heroes/villains they want to add. I'd love to be able to play as Qui-Gon, or Cassian Andor, or Zorri. I'd play them all! As it is, my lowest character, Iden, is level 50. I'd take Two-Tubes even as a reinforcement. ;)

    Cassian could have a sniper ability! Maybe another Mandalorian, Pre Vizla or Din Djarin. Though that might be based on my prejudice against anything non Mandalorian. I don’t know what abilities Zorii could have though.

    I voted for the last 4 options, because Sequel era needs (even more) love.

    Ventress/Ahsoka but BF2 is over no more updates. This game has been a big disappointment for me I expected so much... I hardly play it hopefully we'll get better games in the future.
