Oh no terrible franchise is in the hands of a terrible company
On the one hand, it means we'll probably get to see Battlefront 3 and some action/RPG game (KOTOR3?). But it's still EA, so I'm very worried about what they have planned in terms of DRM, DLC, Pre-order exclusives, Regional exclusives and the list could probably go on.
To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
I’m not that arrogant.
The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.

I assume they'll have dice do some sort of Battlefront 3 facsimile, even if they don't call it that.
And while I think it'll probably be ok gameplay wise, I dread what EA'll slap on as extras :\
Eh, I really hope Disney knows what they are getting into when they decided to let EA keep publishing games for the franchise. I mean, SW: TOR was a major disaster, and if EA decides to cash in on the games in the worst ways possible to the point that they are financial failures as well, then I don't see Disney being that willing to let EA use their franchise anymore.

The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

Wrong. Mr. Ford asked if Han could be killed and Mr. Lucas said no.
Go go Star Wars
Meh, I'm over hating on both game companies and franchises.
It takes a certain amount of obsession to be hating on something after so much time... let it go. Move on..find something you do like.
Hey, if they make new games, which they clearly will, then I'll see what the games are like....maybe I'll like them, maybe I won't.
What a novel concept.
I think EA was the only one with deep enough pockets to pony up the dough and pay the mouse for the rights. My only real issue is that EA has fully embraced the micro-transaction model, so no matter what games we get, expect to continue paying if you want additional content and features.
One thing has piqued my curiosity, it was the caveat to the agreement that said that the mouse has retained the rights to develop additional games on the "mobile, social and online game categories". The original agreement to develop SWTOR was done back in 2008 and given the lack luster performance, could we get another Star Wars MMO? Wishful thinking I know, but I hold out hope for another star wars based sandbox MMO like Galaxies.
