Trivia

While playing in Conquest Mode as Han Solo, you can occasionally hear one of the Imperial Troopers say, "Hey! Solo shot first! That's not fair!" while Han is killing other troopers. This is a reference to a difference between the Special Edition version of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) and the original version. Specifically, the scene where Greedo confronts Han in the Mos Eisley cantina was edited, featuring a laser bolt from Greedo's weapon that barely misses Han's head just before Han kills Greedo. In the original version, Han did indeed shoot first, killing Greedo before Greedo had a chance to shoot (the in-game remark about unfairness presumably referring to the fact that, in the Special Edition movie version, Han clearly killed in self-defense, while the killing of Greedo in the original version was a more questionable use of pre-emptive self-defense).

Goofs

The clone troopers hold weapons in their right hand (with their left to steady two-handed weapons), meaning they are right handed, but on the cover of the game case, the trooper has the gun in his left hand. If all of the troopers were cloned from Jango Fett, they would all be right handed. See more »

Inferior to the original
3 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

The original Starwars Battlefront rocked. This sequel plays similarly and is graphically just as good but the overall package is inferior.

First off, those cool 3D wire frame 'hologram' menus from the first game are no more and have been replaced by lame DVD-esquire background footage from the movies.

More importantly the Galactic Conquest mode is over complicated and the Galaxy map makes it hard to work out what's going on. You can't just pick any enemy planet to attack as before; now you have to move there in turns like in some lame board game.

You also have to buy unit classes before you can play as them rather than having a full set from the start which really annoyed me. To make me even angrier you could only play as a certain class (that you just bought) once you own a certain amount of command posts! If a battle isn't going your way it's difficulty is compounded by the fact you can't strategically play as a unit that may help you turn the tide because you don't control enough of the map.

The split-screen mode is what destroyed this game for me. I burnt hours playing the first game with friends but now the vertical split down the centre of the screen is gone and has been replaced with the terrible top and bottom split. It's like looking through a letterbox! It looks rubbish! Why they have done this I don't know. They could at least add the option of changing. Very lazy.

All this doesn't make the game totally bad, especially if you haven't played the first game (I have been a tad negative and haven't touched on the good points) but for all the new units and maps this game pales in comparison the original – the king of multi-player games on the Xbox. Lets hope for Battlefront 3 the guys at Lucas Arts and Pandemic remember the old saying 'if it ain't broke don't fix it'.
