I hadn't been following this closely but I just read that there will be no single player campaign. That diminishes the game greatly in my eyes as it reduces it to a series of repetitive multiplayer maps with a few wrinkles thrown in (ie: the ability to briefly play as Vader or Luke or briefly pilot the Millenium Falcon) that make little sense within the game. It may look pretty but the lack of any kind of overarching goal means, to me at least, that this will be the kind of game where you drop in, play a few matches, get bored, and leave. MP only games have traditionally quickly fallen by the wayside and have not had any meaningful longevity. Take away the pretty coat of paint and I see the exact same problem here.
Oh well, one less game I need to consider this holiday season.
