I think out of those 3 I would probably pick the star wars game. I think that the starwars games are really doing great, KOTOR II was a great game and so is battlefront 2. They are on a roll and I think a starwars RTS is a good idea.

I played the battle for middle earth and I was quite dissapointed, it felt like an altered warcraft.

As for Warhammer game I don't really know what to say, I played a really old warhammer game on PS1 and it seemed a little slower paced compared to other RTS's but then again things change and that was a long time ago.

Isn't there an RTS in development based on Quake? It's called something something Quake Wars. Or something. I think that might be pretty good. As you can probably tell, I really know my stuff.

I will probably give the Star Wars game a look. Hopefully they do a better job than they did with Force Commander and Battlegrounds. (I liked Battlegrounds, don't get me wrong; but really it was just Age of Empires II modified with a Star Wars theme, like a Star Wars "total conversion".)

I am excited about the new warhammer game. I really liked dawn of war. It is a great game and an excellent multiplayer game. My friends always come over and play.

Ya wow I remember 'Force Commander'. I never played BFME, but alot of plp did. Some say It was disappointing, other greatly enjoy it. Its just that, the new BFME has major yet simple changes to give it a new feel (Is it eneogh). Especially in multi player. Im really Excited over EAW. Sorta maybe like Homeworld with better graphics and gameplay with the ability to have land wars. Warhammer graphics looks amazing and Im sure the bloody, voilent genre with live on. But with the lack of info on any of these games. Its hard to cop a feel.

Overall Its the Online playablity that will win me. Heck, I still play WCR3 cause Blizzard supports it very well. unlike EA and Zero Hour *cough*
