The only problem with this game is that no one else is doing it. The open battlefields aren't small. The battle is going on at ALL times. Instead of being just a main charcter in a story or a overseeing general, you are the whole battle. You can use diffrent types of troops, space battles, Jedi/Sith warriors, and online features are amazing. I bought this game and the day I rented it. I just wish more titles, such as all those WWII titles, would try this. Awsome if you are a Star Wars fan or not.

Battlefield 1942 meets Star Wars.

Story: As a member of the 501st, you fight for the Republic, and eventually become a full fledged Stormtrooper for the Empire. Based on the series of Star Wars movies, this game's storyline will be liked by both people who have seen all of the movies, and those who haven't. (5/5)

Gameplay: This game offers many options to make the game interesting and fun. Get into an instant battle quickly, go do the storyline mode, or conquer the galaxy as any of the four armies you can play. Get online and play with other SWBF fans, or play the unique hero battles pitting all of the legends of the Star Wars universe against one another. (5/5)

Controls: A bit of a challenging controller layout, but you can customize it however you want. To fully understand and utilize the options of each playable character, playing the game for a while is required. (4/5)

Sound: Like most Star Wars games, Star Wars specific music is played throughout each level, creating an atmosphere of excitement and thrill. Although some of the spoken sound bytes seem dry when executed, and at times, humorous (such as a Rebel yelling "YEHAAAH!" after completing a map), it doesn't harm the charm of the game. (4/5)

Replay Value: If you like games in which you control a soldier within a massive army, pitted against another army, then you'd love this game. Love Battlefield 1942 You'd love this game... Maybe. Never the less, the awards you can win make you yearn to keep playing, over and over again. Very addictive. (5/5)

Overall: This game is an extreme improvement of the already memorable Star Wars Battlefront game. Take control of the heroes, such as the Jedi or Sith Lords, instead of just watching them hack away at enemies. Set the difficulty up and watch the game become greatly challenging. Become an expert in a specific archetype of soldier even (I'm a big Stormtrooper and sniper myself). Fun at every corner of this game, get three other friends and conquer the entire Star Wars universe! (22/25)

You should definitely rent this game (or buy it if you have the money, which is very likely). I really don't know why I like this game so much, but if you get bored you can order 3 new maps and 2 new jedi for about $5. Which is always a good thing. The one thing I stress though, is xbox live on this game, it's terrible. I used the right analog stick to look around once, and for some weird reason, My trooper kept going up-right for some reason.
Another time, whenever I set a time bomb somewhere immediately afterward my trooper acted like he was throwing a grenade. So play split-screen, or single player, but don't expect to get blown away on xbox live.
