Vader’s raspy breathing suddenly fills the air around us as he moves in to chop down a pair of Rebel commandos. The moment becomes a serendipitous introduction to the next topic, which concerns why you can’t play as one of the four Jedi heroes — Vader, Skywalker, Count Dooku and Mace Windu — who are sometimes available to aid your team in the game’s 17 maps, depending on the mode you’re playing.

“We wanted players to experience the most explosive action in the Star Wars universe from the front lines as an ordinary foot soldier,” Pettit says.

Star Wars: Battlefront is currently scheduled to ship in July. is currently taking pre-orders for the game.

    IMG Reviews Savage
    7:15 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

    IMG has posted a review of Savage: The Battle for Newerth, ported to the Mac by Virtual Programming. Here's a clip from the review:

    Savage: The Battle for Newerth sets out to combine real time strategy games with first person shooters. It does this, in essence, by answering the question "what would happen if I weren't controlling little AI troops when I played Warcraft, but real players?" Therefore, depending on what you choose, you end up either playing from the position of a commander, with the traditional RTS overhead view from where you issue your orders to the battlefield, or from the position of a soldier in said battlefield, battling it out face to face with the enemy hordes. Unless, of course, you're a sniper or a catapult, but we'll get to that.
