Seven Characters EA Should Add To ‘Star Wars: Battlefront II’

EA’s Star Wars Battlefront II video game is releasing two new characters today to go along with their “Season 1” in honor of The Last Jedi hitting theaters this week: Finn and Captain Phasma. EA is also releasing new maps from the The Last Jedi, “Crait” and “D’Qar”. And thankfully, everything is free after the fiasco EA dealt with in the lead up to the game’s initial release last month. Finn and Captain Phasma are welcome additions to the game, but there are some other heroes that fans would absolutely love to see in Star Wars Battlefront II.


Anakin Skywalker

Yes, Darth Vader is already in the game, but Darth Vader and Anakin Skywalker are basically two different people. Even in the Star Wars films, it’s talked about how Anakin died when he made the transformation into Darth Vader. The only question would be if Anakin is considered a hero or villain in the game, because whatever side gets him will be getting a heavy-hitter.


Obi-Wan Kenobi

It’s a video game tragedy that Obi-Wan Kenobi is not in Battlefront II. He wasn’t in the first Battlefront, either, so I’m not sure what’s up with that. But Obi-Wan is arguably the greatest Jedi ever—he defeated the ultra-powerful Anakin, after all—and 100% belongs in the game. Hopefully it happens sooner than later.


Padme Amidala

Princess Leia got her prowess with a blaster from somewhere, and her mother probably had a hand in it. Padme Amidala would be an excellent addition as a character that doesn’t use a ‘saber, but it might be weird if she faces off with Darth Vader (or Anakin) in battle.


Qui-Gon Jinn

Darth Maul is in the game, but we could use more characters from The Phantom Menace. Qui-Gon Jinn is the Master of Obi-Wan and is a very important character in the saga. He and his green lightsaber would go great with the hero squad.


Count Dooku

This is an easy one for the villains. Count Dooku wields a slightly curved red lightsaber and uses force lightning like Emperor Palpatine. He was a former Jedi trained by Yoda, for crying out loud. Put him in the game, EA.


Mace Windu

The serious Mace Windu was a Jedi through and through, and he and his purple electrum lightsaber would be awesome in Battlefront II.


General Grievous

General Grievous would be loads of fun to use, as he can fight with four lightsabers at one time and is also capable with a blaster pistol. His trademark cough coming through the speakers would be epic.
