Just came across this video from late October and immediately had to share it in light of my recent review of Star Wars: Battlefront.
Long story short, back in 2008 Battlefront III was very close to completion and was possibly even in the quality assurance stage of development when Lucasarts more or less Order 66’d the project (along with several other awesome looking games set in the Star Wars universe).
Admittedly I like that the current Battlefront stays out of the prequels and sticks to the original trilogy but some of the things that were cut, namely story/campaign mode and space battles. The video below even shows a battle taking place both on the surface and in the upper reaches of the atmosphere!
I wish some of the ideas from this prequel era game had found their way to the newest iteration, it may have made the game an 8 or 9 out of 10.
Check it out though:
