Reposting my little blog - I just feel so strongly about it

TIE Fighter for the PC (DOS) was AWESOME. It was also released SIXTEEN years ago. I'm dumbfounded that we haven't seen a resuscitation of this franchise. I'd love to once again fly Imperial missions, and earn tattoos of ever-increasing honor and magnificence by pleasing the Emperor.

Recapture that badassery, add a symmetrical, intertwining Rebel campaign, and call it X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter.

Round it out with a multiplayer component. Make sure it includes all the fighters, from beefy and slow Y-Wings to lightning quick TIE Interceptors, from funky B-Wings to TIE Bombers. Make sure they allow for different payloads for varying situations, forcing a selection between say for example, proton torpedoes or a tractor beam. Then throw all the players in the lobby into a random scenario, like an Alliance Death Star run or an Imperial escort mission. Add in surprises to keep them fresh, like the arrival of pirates or a solar storm, randomly generated by a system like the "Director A.I." from Left 4 Dead.

Do you not want this game?! LucasArt, make this happen!

It doesn't make any sense. I'd have expected at least a "quick few bucks" version of X-Wing v. Tie Fighter for current gen consoles.. Doesn't Lucas like money? Isn't the 360 (or PS3) just perfect for a space fighter game? Isn't Live MADE for this kind of multi-player awesomeness? Why doesn't this game exist for current consoles?

Why? Because "your skin is so soft," Dave, "not rough like the desert." ;)

Even though a quick port would be easy cash, we always run the risk it will go the way of "Wing Commander Arena" and "Battlestar Galactica" for Xbox Live.

I don't want to know, do I?
