Many things are being worked out between Lucasarts and PG.
I doubt that Lucasarts or PG want to mess up the timeline.
The game might pick up right after EP3 and would show the actual rise of the empire with the game having an evil ending as the main one or perhaps the other ending would also be...evilish...or less so.
What are you smoking?
There are books upto 5000+ years before the battle of yavin.
might help, although I had the link of a better more accurate timeline...will try to find it somewhere.
Movie comes out in May, game for the movie is coming out before the movie, this game is expected 5 months after the movie at the earliest.
Could be a dvd tie in....or maybe not
This is a seperate game not tied into the movie.
From the time that PG announced the game, a lot of people seem to have already decided that this game will suck beyond anything that has ever been installed anywhere.
That is the kind of attitude that should be diverted towards games like C&C Generals.
Very similar to all the die hard original trilogy fans who 'know' that EP3 will be the worst movie ever.
The game has a very solid crew working on it, lucasarts -no matter how many people hate them, does good stuff to SW...ocasionally.
*goes back to BFME*
