LucasArts: Star Wars 1313 Not Interested in Jedi "Demigod Complex"

Star Wars 1313's creative director Dominic Robillard has stressed that theconcepts behind the upcoming, gritty third-person action title are built upon "grounded" foundations, with mechanics designed to "make things more relatable", rather than pursuing an interest in the Jedi “demigod complex.”

“It’s not that I think that that’s overdone, but the criminal underworld of 1313 is a little more grounded and that has to live in the mechanics of the game,” he said. “Having mechanics that are limited by human ability makes things more relatable, then we can put all the cool stuff you can do into the gadgets and weapons.”

“You still get to do all of these amazing things because of the environment the game takes place in and because of the gear you have, but at the core you still have these vulnerabilities that are a bit more relatable, so you won’t have the demigod complex of a Jedi." [GCO]

Hmmm...

I wanna be a Jedi with a frickin' laser sword, damnit!

Nothing good since Dark Forces / Jedi Knight :(

Loved Jedi Academy - was hoping to be surprised with a sequel/HD remake/or even a series reboot at E3. Sadly nothing....
