Behold, a new featurette ‘slash’ trailer for the hotly anticipated video game Star Wars: Battlefront II.
One thing that amazes me about the new canon is the justification for the Empire. So far, we’ve seen and read about several characters who sincerely believe in the Empire’s mission. Rae Sloane, for one, is a great example of someone who truly thinks the Empire is the greatest government for the galaxy. Through the Aftermath books, we really see her reasoning and point of view about how the Rebels are in fact the villains. It’s a huge eye opener on the whole Empire/Republic conflict, and it raises the question of, “Could the Empire work?” or “Should there actually be an Empire?” Obvious answers are no, but reading the new canon novels make me rethink that. The main character of Battlefront II, Iden Versio, is in that same camp. We will get to see her reasoning and justification for the empire in a real visceral and engaging way throughout the game’s campaign.
