Gamespot recently reviewed Star Wars Battlefront 2 (Xbox), developed by Pandemic Stuios. The sequel to the popular Star Wars Battlefront, which was released a few months ago for the Mac by Aspyr Media, Battlefront 2 improves upon the original with the addition of new maps, characters, and the inclusion of space-based battles. From the Gamespot review:

If Battlefront II seems like it's treading over familiar ground, that's because it is. If you already played the first game, you won't be surprised to see the same maps in this one. You'll keep fighting on the icy wastes of Hoth, the steamy swamps of Dagobah, and among the buildings in the dusty town of Mos Eisley. Some incremental feature improvements, like the new single-player campaign modes, playable Jedi, and space battles have also been tossed in for good measure. While there haven't been any radical changes made since the first game, Battlefront II remains a worthwhile choice for Star Wars fans looking for a good team-based shooter.
While not yet announced on the Mac, given the popularity of the original, a port by Aspyr is a possibility.

I'd rather they port something with a chance of developing a multiplayer community, or with a more rewarding solo experience.

Just as I expected: the contents of an add-on disguised as a full featured game. Can we spell "rip-off"?

You should have known this was coming since before the first one got ported. Of course it's not going to change much. 1 was a bit of a miss, too, which was obvious and puts me in the right place to take advantage of this upgrade :)
