 Star Wars: Blogs | Under the Twin Sunset | Star Wars vs. Star Trek

 GameSpy: Star Wars: Empire at War Review
The good news and the bad news is that Star Wars: Empire at War is not a conventional real-time strategy game.
It does a wonderful job of bending, breaking, and often reinventing the normal RTS rules to create as Star Wars a feel as you could possibly hope for, short of sitting in a theatre and being fourteen years old.
But overall, it captures the point of Star Wars: the epic sweep of a galactic conflict with a few notable personalities in the forefront.

You already know that there'll be a computer animated series set during the Clone Wars (featuring an undisclosed set of familiar characters) and a live-action show set during the Imperial era between the two movie trilogies.
I am the biggest Star Wars fan I know, but for some reason, the star wars tv shows do not get me psyched at all.

With a war taking place next door, in which their brethren were slugging it out with the Jews on more-equal terms, the passions of the average Jordanian are likely to be inflamed with the hope of imminent victory, and the collapse of the Hashemite dynasty in Jordan is a plausible (though not probable) outcome.
