    So I really like how Disney and Co are handling the films with getting talented Directors that can enter the Universe that inspired them to be who they are. JJ Abrams being the biggest example. Gareth Edwards being the second best since he's literally the freshest Director attached to the new films or I should say Spin-Offs. Anyways lets begin. In my head and dream of dreams this would be the announcement list they would reveal. Keep in mind this list applies to game developers that are good at what they do and in my personal opinion could make great Star Wars games if given the chance.

    Hideo Kojima - Stealth Star Wars game. Imagine a stealth game in the Star Wars universe especially under someones direction that literally understand the genre the best. I would explode.

    Bethesda Softworks - Open World RPG. Imagine exploring an entire small sector of space completely seamless from land and space. This would be very bold but this company knows how to do open worlds.

    Fromsoftware - Star Wars action RPG. This one is the biggest "Would never happen" on my list but I can dream. Plus after seeing Bloodbornes fast paced combat just imagine lightsabers and other types of Star Wars related weapons.

    Ken Levine - This one could be anything but I know if he was involved it would be amazing. I could see him tackling maybe Sith back-stories. Doesn't have to play at all like BioShock but he knows how to do stories really well.

    Naughty Dog - This one would be so good because I could totally see it being about Han Solo/Chewie. Have it be on some mission we never saw or heard of before. Plus Uncharted just fits with Han Solo on so many basic levels. It would be an amazing game.

    This one is actually the biggest "WOULD AND WILL NOT HAPPEN EVER" choices I will make on this dream list.

    Blizzard MMORPG - Why? Because I know they would do it right. Basically. Titan proves that and the company itself proves that. Titan was gonna be their next MMO and from all the info that came out of it when it was cancelled that game was not a "WoW clone" at all. So I know that Blizzard would do a Star Wars MMO justice.

    Anyways that is my list that will never ever happen. I wish it would though. Doesn't have to be these companies but I feel that Disney is making a mistake putting their eggs all in the EA basket. Why not let other creative minds explore and develop amazing stories in this wonderful universe? That is what they are doing with the films, the games should get the same treatment. Anyways as my first post on this website hopefully my other ones wont be as stupid as this. May the force be with all of you. /wave

    One last thing if yall want to make some dream lists as well feel free. :p

    Hell yeah dude, that would be spectacular as well. More variety is always good. The fact that they're only splitting game development between 3 EA owned developers at the moment just worries me. I love DICE, Visceral, and BioWare but I feel like Disney is making a missed opportunity. Giving EA total control over Star Wars video games I feel is a big mistake. Every developer with a good idea should be allowed to make a Star Wars game as long as it fits with canon and has a Maclunkey good premise.

    An Assassin's Creed style Star Wars game would be the best game ever.

    Yeah I really wish Disney would let other companies make Star Wars games besides the three EA owned ones.

    I'm dating myself with my early love for Rebel Assault, Tie Fighter, Dark Forces 1,2, Rogue Squadron - more recently Jedi Knight/Academy, Battlefront, KOTOR and TFU - okay so all of them :D

    Outside of Battlefront, we need another KOTOR/Mass effect type open world or space combat game, but I would love another first person shooter Dark Forces style. No progression to becoming a Jedi Knight. You could wield the saber throughout the game in a crude way, but never master it as a weapon - be a courier delivering the saber or something. Also, what about a COD style game from the perspective of a stormtrooper/empire - wont happen with Battlefront, but I can dream.

    We're all dreaming man, this thread is a dream. :p I would be so happy if they made a spiritual successor to Dark Forces. Seeing what EA has done with Hardline really worries me about Battlefront and honestly the fact that they own the video game rights to Star Wars. I still feel that is a massive mistake. Disney should be overseeing it all and picking developers that they want to enter this magically universe. Instead it's like EA is renting the rights to just abuse it (I want to be proven wrong) such a massive waste of potential.

    Would love to see a remake of the X-Wing/TIE series with multiplayer online battles and a canon series of single player campaigns that included most of the current gen consoles. Maybe even local network/split screen multi player capabilities for the campaigns. I'm a little disappointed that I most likely won't be able to find a way to play battlefront because of the limited platform release it is getting.

    For me, I would love to see some great Star Wars game series get adapted into the new canon, by that I mean basically rebooting Legends games to fit within the new canon. For instance, I would absolutely love to see a reboot of the Dark Forces series, reintroducing Kyle Katarn into the new canon. Obviously there would have to be some major changes, for instance Kyle would no longer be the individual responsible for the theft of the Death Star plans, but that would be part of the fun, seeing the contrast between what has changed and what has stayed the same.

    Game play wise I would absolutely love to see another space flight sim in the vein of the X-Wing game series. I also want to see another game that has light saber content like the Jedi Knight games, where a light saber straight up kills something when it slashes it, not like the Force Unleashed where you had to slash enemies over and over again to defeat them. An open world Star Wars game in the vein of games like Skyrim would be amazing as well.

    I'd like an arcade style beat-em-up. Like the old X-men or Ninja Turtles arcade games. Just go through the entire saga. From Quigon and Obi Wan on the Trade Fed Ship to Luke vs Vader/Palp. The Han/Greedo level would be short. As long as you shoot first. I guess sortof like Jedi Power Battles but with the asthetics of a modern Double Dragon or Streets of Rage. HD 2D sidescroller. Could be fun if there are tons of hidden characters and unlockables. Maybe you change the entire saga by which character you choose also. Play the entire game as Vader or Mace Windu or Yoda. Play as luke but go Dark. So there would be a few decicion moments in the game. Just an idea and now I'm rambling.

    I don't know. Bethesda, while they make great games, are also hit and miss e.g. Fallout 4, The Elder Scrolls Battlespire.

    - An open world Assassins Creed type game would be great. Play as a bounty hunter and stack up gear like new blasters, jumppacks, and even a lightsaber! Set across cities in Nal Hutta, Tatooine, Dathomir, and Ryloth.

    - Bioware. Either KOTOR3 or something new. But definitely Bioware.

    - Bethesda would be interesting. Not sure they'd be able to handle something as big as multiple planets, though. Maybe smaller maps- a Corellian city, a Mandalorian city, a Kashyyyk village, a Sullustan factory. Flying handled in between, with hyperspace used as a sort of fast travel. Could be fun.

    - Netherrealm- A fighting game. Don't do teras kasi. Give us only force users, from all eras. We could see Mace Windu v Kylo Ren, Darth Vader v Rey, Plo Koon v Revan. Cool stuff like that.

    - Taleworlds- The Star Wars mod for Mount and Blade is excellent. If the company itself had the licensing, they could make a hell of a game.

    - Telltale- A telltale Star Wars game could be wonderful! Something canon- maybe set in the Old Republic, or between ROTJ and TFA

    First and foremost, I REALLY want to see a Bethesda-style open-world SW RPG. The only problem there is, it would have to be such a huge game in order to balance transplanetary travel with decent-sized maps on each world that I'm not sure even the most souped-up gaming PCs could handle it, let alone any of the consoles. So, realistically, we'd be looking at a small handful of planets, each with a fairly small and limited map.

    That said, it'd still be a fantastic SW gaming experience, even if there wasn't a vast expanse of explorable area in it. Bethesda's game worlds are always so immersive, and there's so much to interact with, so many opportunities for storylines interspersed with cool little one-off missions... being able to experience that within the Star Wars universe would be unbelievably fun and fascinating.

    Running a close second for me would be a long-overdue SW flight combat game. Much as I loved the Rogue Squadron games on the Nintendo systems years ago, at this point I think they need to get away from stringing together a bunch of disparate game levels (fun though they were) and dive back into deeper, mission-based flight combat games along the lines of the old X-wing, TIE Fighter, and X-wing Alliance PC games. With the current-gen consoles and the degree to which PCs can now be cranked up, they could really knock it out of the park with a good X-wing game.

    Uh, you do know that Respawn [Titanfall] are making one too, right?

    I just hope it's something completely different from Titanfall. Titanfall is excellent, of course, but with SW: Battlefront being the only major SW game to come out so far during the Disney era, I think we need a bit of variation on the MMO "SpawnDieSpawnDieSpawnDieSpawnDie" concept.

    They could do a game set a Long, Long, Long, Long Time Ago before that many planets were discovered. It could be more about exploration. Maybe Coruscant, Corellia, and Duros are the only known planets. And you get to go out and find new worlds and blaze new hyper-routes (Trek style, but in the GFFA). Then releasing expansions (which EA LOVES) would make a lot of sense. So the entire galaxy doesn't have to be created all at once for one game. I could be a completely different kind of Star Wars.

    And yes I would love a good star fighter game.

    Also, I would like to have a campaign mode with splitscreen and online splitscreen in any new FPS that they churn out.
