Make Star Wars Battlefront 2 include the Prequel Era

So as many probably already know, Star Wars Battlefront 2 will feature content from new movies.

Next year we’ll see Star Wars Battlefront back with bigger and better worlds, because we now have the new movies to work off [and] not just the historical movies that we used before.

The problem with this is that the Sequel Trilogy is not even finished yet. So there could possibly not be enough material to feature all these "bigger and better worlds".
And Star Wars The Force Awakens only feature Jakku, Takodana, D'Qar, The Starkiller base and Ahch-To.

I can't be alone, thinking these planets are not unique enough to make a new game for.
Jakku is Tatooine 2, Takodana is Yavin IV 2, The Starkiller base is Hoth 2 and Death Star 3.

The solution to this, as many others have stated on different forums and social media, is to make Star Wars Battlefront 2 about the Prequel Era.
Seeing as there are so many amazing planets with fantastic environments we haven't seen before.

We could have beautiful planets like Naboo, Coruscant, Kamino, Geonosis, Utapau, Mygeeto, Felucia, Kashyyyk, Cato Neimoidia, Saleucami, Mustafar and Polis Massa.

And these are planets just seen in the movies.
The TV series Star Wars The Clone Wars adds a plethora of new planets to the universe.

If you would like to go through all planets to exist in canon this is a paste-bin going over all of them stating what environment they have and where they first were mentioned: http://pastebin.com/UdvCcheL

So now that we know setting Star Wars Battlefront 2 within the Prequel Era solves the planet/location problem.
What about other things that people have had concerns about with the first one, Star Wars Battlefront?

We have, the customization or rather lack thereof.
There has always been a complaint about how lacking the customization in Star Wars Battlefront is, especially for the Imperial Troops since they're literally just using the same heads as for the Rebels.

By using the Prequel Era, we could have an almost infinite customization since armor color and camouflage for Clone Troopers is a thing.
We could be able to pick a pattern, choose a color for said pattern and then choose a base armor.

If you take a look at this imgur album: http://imgur.com/a/0cZD8
It is filled with different looking Clone Troopers, all looking unique, with their own armors, colors, markings and patterns.

The same can be said about Battle Droids: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Battle_droids

And onto heroes.
The Prequel Era also feature a bunch of characters that would serve as perfect hero characters in the game.

We could have Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Maul, Darth Sidious, Padmé Amidala, Anakin Skywalker, Yoda, Mace Windu, Ki Adi Mundi, Plo Koon and the rest on the Jedi Council, Zam Wesell, Jango Fett, Count Dooku, General Grievous and many more.

Vehicles and ships wouldn't be a problem either.
Naboo Starfighters, ARC-170 Starfighters, Jedi Starfighters, Droid gunships, Clone gunships, Swoop bikes, STAPs, AT-TEs, MTT's, BARC Speeders, AATs and AT-RT's.
These are just a few of the possible vehicles and ships that could be in the game.

So to come to a conclusion, setting Star Wars Battlefront 2 in the Prequel Era will solve most problems people have with Star Wars Battlefront.

  • There would be exciting planets with varying environments.
  • Immense customization for both Clone Troopers and Battle Droids.
  • There would be no shortage of iconic heroes.
  • And there would be unique vehicles and ships with differing functions.

If this is something you would like from Star Wars Battlefront 2, please sign this petition and hope it gains awareness from the people in charge.
