SW: luke personalized

Random comment about Battlefront 2 with spoilers if you care about that sort of thing

I watched about half of a youtube video of the cut-scenes from the single-player campaign in Star Wars: Battlefront 2 tonight, and I have to say that I'm not really impressed. Actually, it's more like the dialog and story is a little uneven. It's being told from the Imperial perspective starting around RotJ, but at one point we got a mission where the player gets to be Luke Skywalker and that seemed pretty good. Whoever voiced Luke did a really good job, but the character animation sure didn't look like Mark Hamill circa 1983. I think it was the next mission where Idin, the Imperial you're play as for the majority of the game, turns against the Empire as they carry out the Emperor's final orders. It seemed pretty sudden, even faster than Anakin's turn to the dark-side, if that's something you found wrong with RotS.

This is all still in the first half of the game, so I don't know if she changes her mind, starts a new branch of Imperial enforcement, or whatever by the end. I don't know if I'll watch the rest, but there you have it.
