New patch has just come out, allowing for content dowload + a new map of Jabbas Palace complete with Jabba and squeeling piggy guards! :)

Takes a bit to dowload as it's big, but well worth it, its a nice close quarters combat map!

Enjoyed playing the Jabba level last night. Like the way its been laid out so that pretty much every room you see in Return of the Jedi is actually in the level. Can even fall through the trap door and end up face to face with that huge Rancor. :-)

Was quite funny running round it and watching it eat rebels who had fallen down with me. Couple of quick shots to the Rancor's hands to stop it grabbing me and I was out the door and kicking the hell out the rebels again. :-)

Battlefront was surely designed by Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder. I can appreciate a game that's smart enough to steal Battlefield's conquest idea, but the graphics sucked and there's so many better games on LIVE.

As Tiltawhirl said, it being a mainly online game, it sure didn't feel like it.

It was so half-assed.

Yeah it'd be cool if you had a rank/promotion system in the game. You'd need penalties though to stop mongs dropping out just cause I've come along and wasted them harshly. ;-)

Penalties should become pretty severe in most online games to be honest. Like dropping out could result in something like 100 deaths being added to your stats or a very heavy loss if its a sports title.

Still, even without stats, I love playing on Battlefront. :-)

At least Halo 2 lets your play amount to something.

Why would we be talking about the PC version in the Xbox forum?

Battlefront must be one of the best games I own. OK it's on xbox and you're all on about the PC version but it is an amzing game. It's the only game that you can sit around in and watch your team mates battle for you - but fighting's all the fun! Only flaw is that it's a bit too easy!

Excellent stuff ! I'll be adding Jabba's Palace to my list of levels to play tonight online with my cousin. ;-)

Halo 2 isn't dull, it's just infested with rejects.

Battlefront, if it worked was good fun - but you had no idea where anyone was, what they were doing and there was no real team cohesion. You could have 5 guys running around doing sod all. Often enough I found myself and about 2 other people actually speaking to each other and trying to re-capture points.
