latest star wars mmorpg trailer


What amuses me about the star wars cartoon is how it continues to use catch phrases from the original trilogy on a regular basis. "I have a bad feeling about this" etc. How many could there be to use in nearly every episode without getting old.

Though I guess catch phrases from the bible or Shakespeare have become part of our language so why not star wars.

I was amused but not surprised when even Nytimes movie critic ao Scott cited star wars as the most influential movie he ever saw as a kid (also unsurprisingly manolo dhargis cites is obscure French new wave films like trufault or Jules et Jim.)

What amused me about the latest trailer is how many scenes from the old trilogy they fit into a 6 minute clip from blasting out of the death star to navigating the death star trench to the
Turret guns in the falcon to the death of kenobi to vaders force duel with space debris to the roguish smuggler. And while it was blatantly obvious the appeals to nostalgia were surprisingly powerful in making me want to buy this game.
