I don’t know anything about the development of Battlefront II’s single-player campaign, but after playing it, I can’t help but feel that the creative team had the bones of a really interesting Star Wars side-story, and had it compromised by meddling corporate decision-makers. Forced to abandon their original characters at regular intervals to include trite segments with Luke Skywalker and his buddies, it leads to an uneven campaign that manages to feel bloated despite only being around six hours long.
