Why did the X-wing pilot go to all that trouble to take out a single TIE Interceptor? Why not just leave with everyone else? The battle was already won.

If you can't stand the grey-washing of the Civil War, please do not scroll down for your own sake. People. Kindly stop calling the Empire "good guys" in this short. The TIE pilot was a protagonist, not a hero. The Imperial cause is unambiguously a bad cause. And people pointing this out are not denying Imperial humanity.

Haven’t seen it mentioned yet, but the lengths the Rebel pilot went to to try and take out Gray are noteworthy. Did he have clearance from his own Command to stay back and search the debris field? Let alone engage in a lengthy chase? In all this time his fleet could’ve probably jumped into hyperspace already. What was he hoping to find?

Hello there! What a way to introduce us to Captain Varko Grey! I loved seeing an Imperial Ace Pilot at the controls of a TIE/IN Interceptor, that was so exciting! This CG short is absolutely epic! To everyone involved in making this incredible CG short, thank you!

Bro we need this as a full show, like the clone wars but with stormtroopers. The story looks absolutely perfect and we have really been needing something from the imperial side. I hate the good guy turned rebel story but I’d even be fine with it if it was like the series finally or at least a few seasons of buildup, and not just a starwars rebels clone (just saying that name makes me wanna vomit). They could do something like the brain chip episodes. And please for the love of god make it for older audiences and not toddlers. I’m not saying make it R-rated but it would need to be bold enough to actually talk about deeper stuff than “oh look at that dumb dumb over der I guess I’ll shoot em. Pew pew. Haha rebels win imp r dumb” like rebels did. Sadly I don’t see it being a thing since it probably wouldn’t appeal to general audiences, and they don’t really care about their hardcore fans.

Judge by any metric: safety, prosperity, trade, opportunity, peace. Compare Imperial rule to what is happening right now. Is the world more peaceful since the revolution ? I see nothing but death and chaos.

Have low confidence in this with the amount of "forced" diversity. Female Admiral, Female commander both POC and one with the Alphabet buzz cut yet the main villain is a white male and the lead heroine is a female (rebel) ugh...So much promise yet in reality it'll be an SJW flop!

@unicornonthecob it was not. He wanted the imperials to speak with british accents and the vast majority of british actors in the 70s and 80s were white males. Seriously do you even know shit about the series you are talking about?
unicornonthecob 20 minutes ago
@Rising Horizon Gaming They had some non-White people in the Rebellion in the OT, and zero non-White people in the Empire. It was done intentionally.
Rising Horizon Gaming
@unicornonthecob yeah because that's all George had access to when filming in britain white british dudes. as the series increased in scope he tried to add more diversity to the those that were cast but since filming in britain was was the cheapest option for him at the time due to tax reasons there wasn't much that he could do. Take a look at everything after the original films in both canon and legends material and you will see the empire make leaps in diversity since drawing or writing a character is infinitely cheaper than hiring an actor.
unicornonthecob 9 hours ago
@Rising Horizon Gaming Actually, there are only White men in the Empire during the Original Trilogy. So it is strange that they would make him Asian.
Rising Horizon Gaming
How so asians exist as a part of humanity and the empire only allows humans and near humans to serve. It would be weird if he were an alien of some kind but not an Asian human

Is it weird that I always saw the rebellion as the bad guys? The empire is a military built off of the galactic senate while the rebellion was just a bunch of terrorist with a Death Star 9/11.
Rising Horizon Gaming
The rebellion had official support in the Senate thanks to the delegation of 2000. 2000 senators representing 2000 worlds supported the alliance to restore the republic and before the Senate was removed from power they tried to get show the atrocities the empire had committed against countless worlds such as the genocide of the geonosians, the use of slavery by imperial backed corporations and so on. While minor military engagements did happen between the young rebellion and the empire war was not formally declared until the battle of scarif and with the destruction of alderaan the more worlds began to take the rebellions side. The empire are literally space Nazis would you call those who rebelled against the Nazis the bad guys?

Oh look more wasted money marketing content that should of been part of battlefront 2, remember all those Starfighter content requests for over two years you ignored? Remember the Starfighter thread being the biggest one on your official Battlefront 2 forum before shut it down? Remember it taking 2 years for an employee to even acknowledge that thread’s existence? Remember F8rge telling us Starfighter content was the least requested content next to more Extraction maps? EA is corporate scum

WookieFanboi 12 hours ago
Really interesting that a video game company chose to make an evil empire trooper the sympathetic character here, replete with rousing hero theme. And that's the way you're going to intro this game? With the "heroic" soldier of the Empire? Pretty tone deaf, considering what's going on in the world. Obviously not an accident.
Kinsley Jacques

considering that this game probably took some years to do (like any other game), i don't think the devs are prophets that can tell what's gonna happen in the world.
Rising Horizon Gaming
Actually the campaign is split in two. You experience the final year of the war from both sides as the conflict inevitably leads to the battle of jakuu and the fall of the empire. There were hero's and idealists on both sides fighting for what they believed in and it's about time we learned their stories because nothing is every black and white. Bad people sometimes fight for noble causes and good people sometimes fight for causes they believe to be noble but at their heart are truly corrupt.
