    I wonder how Christopher Lee managed the fight with Yoda.

    George Lucas: "OK Yoda's in front of you but he's moving really fast and spinning and flipping around the place. Action!"
    Christopher Lee: "Err. Say that again." :p

    Anyways the Droidekas seriously unbalanced Episode I. I mean George Lucas said that the stormtroopers were supposed to replace the droids because they were better. Compared to the battle droids that's true. But the droidekas, with their speed, shields and rapid fire guns leave everyone in their dust, Jedi included.

    Like I said, they probably choreagraphed a fight scene, filmed it in front of the green screen, then built Yoda's moves around that.

    WHY THE F*CK DID THEY HAVE TO POSE?!?!!? (This is me making fun of myself, which I'm doing since Frosty ain't around too much on here anymore)

    Christopher Lee is an old hand when it comes to working around SFX. He knows all about landing on marks and what not; what was more absurd: Fighting Yoda or speaking in tounges to a blue screen during that big panning shot during LOTR?

    First point: Maybe Lucas wanted to establish that there were a lot of Jedi present without leaping straight into the action.

    Second point: Well as long as it turns out all right...

    I'd rather a single large exposition shot then 5 shots of two or three Jedi at a time.

    I'd rather the whole colluseum be immersed in flame, killing all parties involved. We don't always get what we want. :D

    Therein lies the problem, LeHah... you should never ignore people. Each person's opinion has it's own distinct flavor, and it's own value. Even yours. :D As a whole, we make up a community. As individuals, we're just a bunch of insane people griping about something which holds no bearing on reality.

    Well, excuse me for being out of sync with the rest of the forum. I'll return to being an jackass momentarily.

    i've been playing Starlancer and it doesnt seem to be a bad game at all..i just hate it that you are responsible for everything and your wingmates never get in trouble for stuff. I also hate having to shoot down the torpedoes..i thought the carriers and cruisers could handle them like in XWA. I'm not done yet...on the mission where you fly stolen enemy torp bombers. that mission stinks bad..i hate it. i do like the variety of the fighters, but you have so little time to enjoy them all, my fav is the Mirage..a good all purpose fighter...great weapons and nice missile capacity. I hope the sequel will be better.

    Do you find Gamma Wing annoying to defend all the time? You'd think they'd be loaded out with some sort of defensive turrets, so they could have at least a semblance of independency like the Broadsword...

    If you mean missing by a metre as opposed to ten metres, yes, this is better. :)

    I thought the same thing myself - they seem like an ideal solution to the Jedi's lightsabre reflection techniques... I don't think we've seen anyone successfully deal with them aside from Anakin shooting them with starfighter blasters in Episode I.

    I knew I shouldn't have mentioned anything on that. You can't please everyone - I personally liked the close up shots since the background Jedi would otherwise be just that, we wouldn't even see their faces or recognise that there were other Jedi beyond Qui-Gon, Yoda, Obi-Wan and Mace.

    How is this different from Wing Commander? ;)

    Reaction shots are one thing. Close ups are something else. But posing is damned stupid. "I'm a Jedi! Let me pose to show my styles!". Yuck.

    LeHah: Give 'em a break. They hardly get any camera time as it is and they're all going to get wiped out in a few years or so :(

    I just got done reading the second of his books written for the NJO series and I can vouch for his humorous side. I've also read the four X-Wing series novels he has written and those are also very good books.

    If by sequel he meant Freelancer, then it damned well better come out or Microsoft'll probably be rather angry.

    I think that the release problem of Freelancer is because Microsoft, not DA
