The lights are on
I wasn't sure where to post this as a star wars specific forum but I think most gamers can participate in this anyways.
So aside from half life episode 3 the games that most people seem to demand are Star wars Battlefront 3 and/or Star wars Rpublic Commando 2. At least that's what I'm feeling. Only problem is Lucas Arts was recently having financial issues, even with SWTOR being a decent success. This seems to be a probable cause for these games not being available yet. At least from what I could peice together. So I came up with a different idea.
Are you, the community, willing to accept an HD remake of the originals? This could be a much less expensive project and based on the recent games put out by Lucas Arts, a return to the past is probably just what they need. Along with updated graphics they have the ability to add even more content and updated AI all in one game for less than a normal game. It's not a next gen sequel per se but maybe it could tide us over until the true sequels hit shelves and maybe give them some more money in their pockets to make sure the sequels are up to snuff.
Thoughts? Questions? Please discuss.

Alright, I'll take a stab at this. Being a HUGE fan of both of these games, I feel the need to agree that an HD remake would be pretty cool. A few additions to spice up the old and make it feel new and chances are the games will sell. But I for one would not buy these remakes. I have yet to buy an HD remake to date, and I don't believe I am going to start now. It's nothing against the game or the developers, I just don't find much pleasure re-buying a game I used to play/own just because its a little more shiny. In my opinion, there is a reason I stopped playing the game and unless they can throw something drastically different into the HD remake I don't feel the need to re-buy it. Thats just my opinion on the HD remake aspect of these games.
I have played the Battlefront games and always wondered how Republic Commando was like. It would be good to see re-releases of these games that are updated and have sequels confirmed. I would definitely love to buy these games, re-releases or sequels.
Republic commando was a blast..
Also not quite the opinions I expected. But I'm in the same boat Nintendo Fan. I like HD remakes and these were two of my all time favorites. But this is just as much a dream as legitimate sequels I guess.
I loved the Battlefront series and would buy the HD remakes. However, in order for me to buy them they would have to come with some more updates. Such as better functions and perks. I would definitely get them then. What would be even better if they included the remakes and the most recent sequel in a value pack, I would be sold on that too. I hope they come out with Battlefront 3 someday.
I really would love a sequel to both of these games, I just don't understand why they haven't.
I would agree that a remake (not remaster) with some upgraded gameplay mechanics would be great for fans, as well as reassuring LucasArts that their old IP can still draw crowds.
Thats a good point magiccoffeepot. LucasArts prbably just needs reassurance that it will sell well if they made a sequel.
Well, there's also the issue of finding a studio to develop it. Apparently BFIII was in the works but the devs were being totally harassed by LucasArts. They referred to their contacts within LucasArts as "psychopaths." When that studio fell apart, the game went into development limbo, and hasn't been heard from since. I'm sure LucasArts knows that people want the game, they just need to get their sh*t in order first.
I definitley wouldn't mind a Battlefront 1 or 2 (heck, or a bundle with both of them) HD remake, but I have a feeling It would just make me long more for Battlefront 3 ;(
