Disney (or someone associated with Disney) has once again patched the PC version of 2005's Star Wars: Battlefront II, following the restoration of its multiplayer services previous year.

In the Hoth-like coldness of Star Wars "Wilderness Years", following Return of the Jedi in 1983 but before The Phantom Menace in 1999, advancements in the story of the galaxy far, far away had to be done in the form of books, comics, and video games. Minor bug fixes, optimized performance, improved lobby functionality, more accurate ping calculations, and more can be found in the update. We'd be surprised if that happened given how troublesome Battlefront 2's first few months have been, but it's not out of the question.

But it's been more than a decade since a Blue Devils player won the John Wooden Award - the last one being J.J. OR sophomore point guard Sabrina Ionescu is one of 25 players who remain in contention for the John R.

However, with Double Damage now revealing its own Star Wars space battle project, which was pitched to EA in 2016, we've now got to wonder whether DD could have done an even better job. Darth Vader in white probably doesn't make sense, versus in black. It's been a long, long time since we've gotten a really great shooter in the Star Wars universe, and we very almost had one, as footage from a 2016 pitch has surfaced (via Kotaku).

Some time ago, Blake Jorgensen, the financial director of Electronic Arts, ruled out the arrival of personalization items to Star Wars: Battlefront II, since he believed that they would violate the canon and that players probably did not want to play with a pink Darth Vader.
