No the problem is Star Wars itself.
The guys owning Star Wars think: Hey, this is STAR WARS. It must sell 10 million copies, because it is frigging Star Wars! If they craft a MMO, they don't make a MMO for 300k subs or 500k subs. No, they want to make a MMO with 10 million subs in mind. Same if they make a single player game. Because it is Star Wars, they think it MUST make 5-10 million copies sold.
And to accomplish that, they become TOTALLY risk averse. As in: make it as simplistic and much of a copy-cat of "the known and proven" formulas as possible.
Result will always, always be mediocre trash.
Because it is Star Wars. And that means, fodder for the unwashed masses. Not for the demanding few elite gamers we are. WE are not the target audience. The target audience are those SW fans who want to replay Episode II and who maybe play one or two computer games every year, but toss 60 dollars into a cheap, primitive 8 hour minigame, because THAT sells 6+ million copies.
A detailed, demanding sandbox Star Wars game would sell maybe 300-400k copies.
So you see, why should any CEO ever decide to produce a niche SW game for us, when he can make obscene amounts of bucks by selling trash games to masses?? Why??
A forum is a place where people can discuss about different opinions. So what I don't get is, how people react offended when they come to a forum and then find... well different opinions. If a different opinion offends you, what are you even doing here?

I dont know why so much hate for disney as they have always been a great company for all ages...they make great movies both animated and live action, lion king and tron series are some of my all time favorite movies...they have a lot of great tv shows old and new, Gargoyles and Darkwing Duck was awsome. They worked great with squarenix in Kingdom Hearts also one of my favorite game series. I think it was a good idea to let EA handle the games as EA has a lot of great developers under them like DICE and Bioware.
