Well holy smokes. This comm has been dead for over a year!
Anyway...don't think I had anything big to update with...I don't think there's anything new Fett wise. Boba is in some new comics, though:http://www.tfaw.com/Profile/Star-Wars-Adventures%3A-Boba-Fett-And-The-Ship-Of-Fear-GN___372502http://www.tfaw.com/Profile/Star-Wars%3A-Blood-Ties-A-Tale-Of-Jango-And-Boba-Fett-TPB___377662
Anyone read these at all?
Um...has there ever been discussion here about a sandbox style game, with Boba [or even Jango] as the main character? As in, it would play out in a similar fashion to, say, Red Dead Redemption and the GTA series that it came from?
Granted, yes, Lucas and his narrow minded cronies at LA would never go for it. But its nice to think in what ifs sometimes. So, WHAT IF there was a game? And I'm not talking about a linear style game [IE the 2002 "Bounty Hunter"], I'm talking about sandbox, 'open galaxy' style. Anyone? Anyone? Ok, I'll throw my ideas out:
1. For starters, it would have to be set in some time of Boba's life which hasn't been written on yet. Several months inbetween canon events, or something. Don't want to walk all over established EU [totally not provoking a Lucas bashing, btw. But feel free to rip him apart if you'd like, I don't mind a bit]
2. As a sandbox style game, as Boba you'd have your galaxy map [think KOTOR or Mass Effect] to plot hyperspace routes to. At random times while flying about or even walking around planets, you could be attacked by pirates and thugs [sort of stuff happens all the time in GTA and RDR]. You could get random/scripted offers for bounties, maybe even compete with other well known bounty hunters of the time.
3. No doubt this could also work with Jango...of course, his time line is a little broken. It seems like he wasn't a bounty hunter for very long before being hired by Dooku, and then after that he didn't take many assignments...
4. If its NOT a sandbox game, then maybe it could be one giant flashback. With Boba in his later years, recalling some of his jobs to his grand daughter Mirta Gev [or other characters introduced in recent novels]...or he's just contemplating and reminiscing to himself [since Boba isn't the story telling type.] And there's A LOT of flashbacks players could play through: escaping Geonosis, leading Stormtroopers on Kamino, the Bounty Hunter Wars, fighting Vader, attempting to kill Mace Windu, the list goes on...
Anyway. Ideas? Thoughts?
