I agree that Clone Wars is the best Star Wars content. But that shit was NOT CHEAP to produce, each episode averaged out at more than 1 million bucks. The only reason it got the budget it did was because Lucas was a madlad wiling to burn money to warm his pet project baby. There's a reason Disney replaced it with Rebels, then replaced Rebels with the even cheaper Resistance. Disney gave us more Clone Wars because they were desperate to pander to their angered fans and Filoni had the power to push for it.An excellent example of why indie games are the way forward. This game was shitty and rushed, so imagine what it could have been with a smaller studio. Stylized graphics as opposed to "realistic", more content produced in shorter time, more genuine and less "EA", and ultimately cheaper and less of an investment than a huge half-decade project.
I mean fuck sake, Clone Wars is the best Star Wars content period and it's basically a CGI cartoon for kids. This could have been a more "child-like" spaceship simulator and more or less have tried out the same concept at 1/4 the resources.
It's why all the animation you see now is either Cel-shaded CGI or Flash Animated simplistic garbage. Good CGI cartoons are pricey business. Just like good video games.
