I'd like a wave of Star Wars games, but I want things like a new TIE Fighter, X-Wing Alliance or Rogue Squadron... or Supremacy/Rebellion. Or, for that matter, a next entry in the Jedi Knight saga.
Heck, as much as I frown at how lazy it is just to "remake" stuff... I'd go with remakes of X-Wing/TIE Fighter/X-Wing Alliance/Jedi Knight games in Unreal Engine 4, since many dev teams have shown it works well for FPS and space games.
But I'd rather the new films were just wiped from the collective consciousness of the universe. I saw Force Awakens via Lovefilm and it felt like I was watching A New Hope with the soul ripped out. I never bothered with any of the ones after.
What does "on a plane" mean? I'm missing some slang, I think...
I missed C&C4. WoW caused me to write them off forever. I saw it as a selling out type of deal. Cloning ever quest to smash commercial success would change them forever. n it did. Also, I'm pretty sure they had already started gobbling up IPs by then. EA is the worst offender. So many unique IPs in the vault never to be seen again (like Black & White series)
i think most people agree with your list of remakes. they should have two branches. a remake team, and a new IP team.
just gotta remember, the purpose of star wars has been and always will be selling toys. idk about "soul" as much as piss poor acting, but then again, the acting in the originals was pretty terrible as well. I was reminded of this over the holiday because we attended Episode IV W/ orchestra.
on a plane - on an airplane.

20-odd years of gaming and following developments has left me scarred and jaded. Its probably why I seem to find myself playing "proven classics" more than any new and shiny titles out there.
andromeda was pretty boring. it felt like an MMO that got axed mid-development then shoe-horned into a single player title. It had to remind you it was Mass Effect, because it was so generic & bland.
either way, someone's gotta do it. N it doesn't seem Bioware's been all that busy recently so no "Anthem" excuses can pop up.

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
Best R0ach Quote of all time : TLDR: Haswell might be the last legit gaming platform unless mice get their own non-USB interface on some newer architecture.
