Perhaps you’re a little like I am when you look at the Star Wars universe and its incarnations: kind of like watching your favorite plant wither while you do everything you normally have to love it.
I mean, the Clone Wars tv show was only cool because sometimes they had lightsabers that sometimes were used like you always want, and also sometimes some characters died. But as a whole there has been a lot of bad output from the Star Wars behemoth. We’ll see another “cartooned” version of Star Wars coming in the Old Republic MMO set to grab your wallet and shake it around like a chew toy.
What happened to games like Jedi Outcast?
Anyway, enter the Star Wars cantina game. I guess its something like a business management sim with Star Wars characters. Here’s the App store blurb:
Your task is to see that the right beverage finds its way to the right customer. And don’t keep them waiting, some of the customers are real troublemakers! Working towards your daily quota, accuracy and speed are essential. As a reward for a job well done, outfit your cantina with decorations and attractions to appeal to even the most difficult customers.
Ok, so from the sound of things, we won’t see any Jedi snipping off the limbs of boisterous cantina slime. Why are Star Wars games being dumbed down? Whats funny is I could totally get into this if it was rated teen and had realistic graphics and good dialogue/characters. I guess the content could reflect a high maturity while the graphics are cartooned, but really, whens the last time that happened?
We’ve said it before here at Pixel Well and we’ll say it again: give us a realistic, motion controlled Jedi duel game were you can shave off limbs and we would never stop playing it.
The Star Wars Cantina game is being developed by THQ and hasn’t had a release date set.
