Oh… there will be prequel stuff…
My guess is that DICE was under a tight schedule, not by lucasfilm, but by EA. They wanted the game out before TFA. So now, for BF2, they have the engine and a lot of the assets/sounds/etc., so this whole time they really only had to tweak the graphics a bit and then add assets and gameplay elements. So i bet it is much bigger
I also like how the story will follow (at least from how the trailer is perceived) a post-Jedi Imperial loyalist.
@kewldude007 i knew it would get taken down lol. I updated it, but i expect that one may get taken down too lol. I will update it with the actual Star Wars youtube link when it goes up.
