Things EA Will Absolutely Regret About 'Jedi: Fallen Order'

As mentioned before, there was once a point when Hoth was basically to Star Wars games what Normandy Beach is to World War II shooters. And it got tired. We've gotten fewer Star Wars novels, comics, and games since, but if there is a simple truth now, it's that we're pretty full up on anything that takes place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.



At this very moment, we now have two full-fledged Star Wars movies, a slew of comics, and a TV series that fill in that gap of time between the prequels and the original trilogy, one of which literally leads into the exact moment A New Hope starts. Granted, that's a 30-year stretch of time to fill in, and there's a lot to explore in there, but if there's any connecting trait between all the best Star Wars video games, it's that they take us somewhere and somewhen we haven't seen before. Knights of the Old Republic took place millennia before the prequels, which gave BioWare plenty of wiggle room to make the universe their own.


Jedi: Fallen Order might be able to ace the story — it is being made by the people who made us care about the story of a boy and his Titan friend, after all — but it's at a disadvantage when it's covering such well-trodden ground.
