Jedi are supposed to be warrior monk style folk trained from childhood like shaolin monks. So why are so many Jedi in things lately such stereotyped whiny little teen ****? I blame Anakin Skywalker.

That's only true for the prequels. In the NJO era, everything sucks. :ph34r:

There is still the most important issue of any Jedi action game: lightsaber combat. I'd rather not have another game with such a craptacular fighting system as that of JK2 and JA. I mean, it was fun and stuff, but it was nothing alike the movies. Jumping and running around in circles all the time is not what good ol' Obi-Wan does. We'll see how they do it for the EP3 game, but I'm not holding my hopes too high.

I found the lightsaber combat in JA very confusing. Obviously I never mastered it, but I found myself, as you described, jumping around all the time, pressing the mouse button and running rather than an actual "duel".

Screw SP, I want a better-developed MP with full focus on lightsaber combat.

I loved JK2 combat. Not that much against human or computer opponents but watching 2 or more equal computer controlled NPC fight each other.

Spawn few Luke's, few Dark Masters and some Stormtroopers for fun. Asbolutely beautiful. KotOR combat should look like that.

Oh, you've only heard the tip of the iceberg then. Try the Solo family getting it on with EACH OTHER. Now THAT was weird.

Yeah, but what does fanfic have to do with the NJO? Ender was making a comment that the NJO wasn't to his liking. So bringing up what some sex-starved fanfic writer wrote about doesn't help or hinder the case about the NJO being bad.

Um....I was joking? And the majority of this schtuff I've seen was set in the NJO era? :lol:

Ok, no problem. My mistake.

I just thought you were pointing out extra material to support Ender's claim that the NJO isn't very good by posting about something that had nothing to do with the actual "canon" NJO.

Yeah, but the system it's the closest any game as ever gotten to it, isn't it ?

I thought the Light Saber combat was one of the only things they actually got even remotely right.

I'm still waiting for the real Jedi Knight 2 however...

It's more accurate to say that the JK series are the only games which have ever been intended to be a lightsaber combat simulation. So there aren't other games to compare to.

I know it wasn't an action game, but I liked the KotOR lightsaber combat animations much better than JO/JA lightsaber combat.

Matybe we could have somekind of turnbased combat system for the next JK game.

Also I would like to play as Anakin Solo or Ben Skywalker.
