Holy rancor! I may not be a big SW fan, but wow that has even me drooling. According to my son - who IS a huge SW fan - it's a good thing to have BioWare involved. From the trailer I agree. Of course, the finished product may not look quite as good as the trailer, but still.....

Are you serious? It looked silly!

Just looks like him. Malak has been dead for about 300 years at this point. That Sith character isn't given a name.
Are we sure he isn't Lord Angral?
Nope. He looks different and is mentioned as a separate character (though unnamed) that led the ground attack on the Temple while Angral led the fleet.

Lord Angral has a listing with pics:

Sith are cowards anyway, I'm not surprised Angral would send a flunkie to do his dirty work.

True enough, but as it's a game trailer, we'll let it slide.

Zach Snyder directs Star Wars.
And the simplistic plot, and the poor acting.

Totally awesome trailer that doesn't show a bit of the actual game.

I'm so conflicted.

So, just like a normal Star Wars movie.

Trailer looks good...but a bit wankish. Of course there's a tail-headed hottie and the Boba Bitch is all sexy, Sith guy is a Vader-type.

God, I hate it when prequel-era videogames don't even try to make things look different.

Exactly, and I love normal Star Wars movies. I'm just saying that pretending that this is in any way better than the prequels is, in my opinion, a symptom of severe gamer-blindness.

Re: I Want This as a Star Wars Film Now

I desperately wanted KotOR 3 instead of this; I thought KotOR was the best game of the decade.

However, BioWare is making up for it by making this look fucking awesome so far. I'm generally not big on MMOs but I'll sure as hell be giving this one a shot.

QFT.

Many people here are saying that they want this into a movie and/or wish this was one of the prequels, yet if that were the case, it would be bashed to high heavens.

Re: I Want This as a Star Wars Film Now

As much as I enjoyed the prequels, I still think they're the worse end of the Star Wars franchise (outside 90% of the EU that is). I was expecting Anakin to be this sympathetic "brother" a hero figure that had a fall from grace-- basically what Obi-Wan set up in Episode IV. Instead we got Emo Anakin that I just wanted to smack up the side the head and say "Get a pair you whiny little bitch". Clone Wars Anakin has been somewhat of a improvement, but still a long ways to go.

What works in games doesn't necessarily work in movies, and what fanboys like isn't necessarily what the general audience would like.
What part of the general audience that liked either the OT or Prequels would be opposed to large scale lightsaber fights between Jedi and Sith? I'm not talking about a two hour ongoing battle; there would obviously have to be a compelling story and characters wrapped around it for the movie to be viable. But I just don't see what is particularly "fanboy" exclusive about this.
The fanboy stuff would be using sexy females (Boba lady and the Twi'Lek) and the "Our time is at hand" old crap.
Dozens of lightsabers doesn't help much either.
Anyone who liked this should have had no problem with Episode II whatsoever.

I would agree with that if you're talking purely visual. Writing on the other hand...

...well can't say about the game, but Episode II, I was cheering for the seps to finally put a end to emo-boy.

I would say that if it's considered "old" that is only because it was used in the PT. Replace the PT with this, and it's not so old because it doesn't seem so repetitive.

It didn't really seem to help the PT for that matter, so the point is uncontested.

Now that's a bit silly. Without some quality writing, a film based upon what we've seen in this trailer wouldn't fare any better than the PT. The presumption is that the needed quality would be there. Personally, I like the set up in story here and feel it would make for a very engrossing tale, augmented by the special effects.
