Watch it, and then my thoughts after the jump.
I know I get on and off the hype train with amazing alacrity, but nothing gets the heart pumping like a good cinematic. In terms of cinematic grandeur, I still prefer the first trailer. But this one was amazing for showing that, yes, Republic troopers are completely badass, and yes, they can hold their own against a Sith.We also got to see a Jedi Consular – maybe Satele Shan, Massively reported – totally do a Hadoken on a Sith. Which was pretty awesome, too.
There are also rumors – much like I predicted in a comment on GeeCee’s blog – that players will have access to customizable starships that could double as housing. Which sounds awesome, because I really love me my Republic-style warships.
