    Thanks for proving my point. You had to post a picture of her with a bald head to even come close to the level of freakishness. Even with the bald head and ugly tattoos she still looks much more normal and not nearly as instinctively repulsive IRL. Not that she is a looker to begin with, but next to the demonic in-game model she is normal by comparison. It's even worse when you see it in motion.

    Got the FitGirl version bc I thought SW, why not. Maybe the games arent as bad as the fucking films are. But boy was I wrong. Lasted for like 30 mins, best part was when that frogfaced niggerette showed up in a supposedly dramatic cutscene. Had a good laugh there, was kinda the highlight of those 30 mins. Rest was boring jump n run sequences, bad humor (whats up with that shitty robot) sprinkled with popamole combat and a terrible control scheme (yes I played with my ps3 controler). Whoever designed that control scheme should get its balls cut off, but it prolly was a dangerhair anyway, so whatever.

    Avoid this shit at all cost, worst 50 gb in my life.

    Star Wars isn't supposed to be deep, rusty_shackleford. The Force is set in such a way as to facilitate the perpetuation of the Jedi vs Sith struggle as a backdrop for corny SF adventures.

    There is way too much platforming in this game. I like to kill people with my lighsaber not jump around like a cat.

    Day-um, those are some ugly muthafiuckers! Haven't seen anything this homely in an AAA title since Brian Fargo made all the character models in early builds of BT4 in his image.

    I suppose Star Wars once had a message during the Cold War, then it became a Kids trilogy. Now it just has an identity crisis.

    Even the GoT producers jumped ship from this irredeemable franchise.

    If Dark Souls-ish combat and Tomb Raider-ish platforming and (rarely) puzzle solving sounds good to you, I can't imagine not enjoying this game. There's a reason 90% of the complaints on this thread are "black lady looks weird" and "fuck EA." Not saying it's some amazing game, but it's very solid and well done for what it's trying to be.

    Who gives a fuck whether they uglified anybody or they just picked ugly actors to begin with. What's the difference anyway? The result is the same.

    SJW ideology, not even once.

    Making people ugly on purpose because you want to exalt the ephemeral over the ideal is not just wrong, it's downright satanic.

    I'd say that Dark Souls' different classes, weapons and armor, stats, variety all played a pretty big fucking role in the game's success. It's like offering a Diablo clone without stats and items; nothing but combat (which makes exploration and looking for chests and secrets pointless). Never played Tomb Raider but since raiding fucking tombs is all I'm doing, the comparison is apt. Compared to Jedi Academy combat is a painfully boring and limited. The Academy had three times as many Force powers, plus you could level them up, this game has Push, Pull, Jump (unless you count wall run which got old a long time ago). Its clear that the focus was on the visuals and 'emotional storytelling', not design.

    I've just finished the first Rogue squadron, are the two other as good? (before I start faffing around with an emulator)

    Yeah, they're both good games, though the third game has some on-foot sections that are pretty terrible.

    Eh, I'm talking about this game specifically. It's clear that the actors are kinda ugly, so is it wrong for picking them in the first place?

    This is true. Souls combat in itself isn't great, it's everything around it that elevates it.

    It has nothing to do with the actors it's their intent behind their choices on the actors and their rendering in the game. There's nothing wrong with ugly characters in and of itself and by extension there's nothing wrong with picking ugly actors for the purpose of making those characters, but the reason SJWs obsesses over ugliness is that they are war with reality over the fact people aren't the same in everything. This all nonsense about depicting "realistic" people is just sophistry. Those people are communists in every sense, even a metaphysical one and they want to define what is "real" as being what is most mediocre to make sure nobody is more advantaged than anybody else. This is why we got all those ugly dykes in The Outer Worlds. Games in particular are an especially delicious target for those people because of the tendency to portray the "ideal" in the most cheap and superficial way, but that's still preferable to a game that only has ugly characters in it, not the least because, cheap or not, one of the reasons we play games is to escape the shit aspects of reality in the first place. Even if i agreed with their definition of "realistic body types", which i don't, i still don't want to play a game with ugly land whales when i'm playing the game to escape from that shit in the first place.

    Haaaa ye no.

    Combat and level design is what makes Dark Souls. The "RPG" part is what's not that great.

    It has Dark Souls-ish combat and a lot of Souls-like tropes (respawning enemies at checkpoints, Metroid style levels, etc.). It's not overall a Dark Souls clone though, no. It mixes that with a lot of Tomb Raider and some other stuff, with a much more "cinematic" story and way less RPG aspects. It's very much a mix of what's popular now (Dark Souls and Tomb Raider sell very well for singleplayer games in 2019). Like I said, if you like those kinds of games you'll like this one. You won't cum all over its tits and marry it, but you'll enjoy yourself. If you don't like those kinds of games, you won't like this one.
