GAME REVIEW: Star Wars Battlefront II

LucasArts (PS2, Xbox)
Game ••••½ Graphics/Sound ••••½
Once again, online warfare (for up to 24 players on PS2, 36 on Xbox) has you capturing and defending control points scattered about locations like the Death Star and molten-hot Mustafar. But now you also get to play as Force-fueled warriors - including the man in black (no, not Johnny; I'm talking Vader) - and engage in ship-to-ship space battles. It's Star Wars like it oughta be, without the mushy romance and lame politics.
