AdmiralToguroAni Posted June 27, 2005 Share Posted June 27, 2005 Dont get the wrong idea about this post, I'm not asking for help on making a game or anything, but I'm just sort of rambling about a game from my youth and how cool it would be to see a Star Wars version of it. Anyone remember Pirates! Gold? They just recently re-did it for PC and Xbox and made me remember the good old days. Anyway, the game has you as a privateer on the Caribbean in the 1500-1600s. You could ally yourself with any of the 4 major powers, or remain neutral. You would recruit men, sail around in your little ship and capture bigger ships through space combat and boarding. Once you capture a ship, you can use it to attack other ships or towns. Of course, you could never get a giant fleet together because you dont have enough men, but if you were lucky you could take some towns along the coast to use as bases. I wish there was a Star Wars game like that. Maybe it could take place between the Thrawn era and the Yuuzan Vong invasion, when ships were getting more efficient in terms of crew sizes. You could fly in the different systems and capture New Republic ships or Remnant ships or whatever you wanted. I suppose a problem could be manpower for those giant starships like the Star Destroyers, but it would be neat to take over a small planet, steal some Federation Droid Pilot plans and start making droids to help you pilot the ship (Roger Roger). Of course, whoever you steal the ships from wont be happy and they'll send fleets after you (from what I understand, it was a miracle if you could get ahold of a dreadnaught, much less a star destroyer). To that end, capturing Star Destroyers would be the ultimate challenge in the game, sending your raiding party in and getting into a battle with the stormtroopers and fleet regiments inside. More than likely you'd be using dreadnaughts, corvettes, YT-1300s, or whatever they use at that time. That post Thrawn/Pre-Vong era seems the best place to put it, because its during that time that the Republic is experiencing growing pains, and the Empire is reduced in size and seems to come up with new super-weapons every other book or so, so I doubt they'd have TOO many fleets going after some space pirates. Anyway, I'm finished rambling. Just wishful thinking, but wouldn't it be cool? Count Dooku is the strongest Star Wars character as depicted in the movies. All hail Christopher Lee.
