I'll probably get it. I haven't quite finished Bad Piggies yet, but they've all been fun, and the newer games have been even more fun than the old ones. I like that I can pick it up, play a few levels, and not have to sit there and play for hours to get anywhere (not that most mobile games are that way, but it doesn't require constant attention).

But the big question is: who's gonna shoot first, the birds or the pigs?!

What a shame for Lucas. A mediocre and mindless game mixed with one of the best space sagas of all time.

Never played, might give it a shot as long as it is less than $5.

It's fun until you run out of levels. But Angry Birds Star Wars... they're just ruining the Star Wars name. First the sub-par prequels, then the corny animated series, then this.

Actually, not even close. I started to write an answer to this thread and figured out that everything I wrote could be cropped to this one perfectly formed sentence. I reckon I didn't phrase it well enough but I really felt like giving a high-five to the original poster as it made me laugh.

Still (and before you added your 'I just jumped on my high horse' comment, I also commented on that article on my own personal blog here: http://bit.ly/VTIIm3).

But hey, thanks to you also for bringing such constructive comment to the thread

Okay, I kinda got it when Angry Birds came out. It was a game that was a pop-hit, one of those addictive time wasters. I even considered playing it from time to time. AB Space came very close to convincing me to play. But what has convinced me more than anything never to want to play is the massive levels or over the top merchandising. Everywhere I go I see Angry Birds toys, Angry Birds key rings, Angry Birds flash lights, Angry Birds USB drives. It just disgusts me, and it makes me want to have nothing to do with Angry Birds.

I might have considered this one, but even here, they're a month away from their announced release date and this pathetic little video is all they can offer? No game play? Not even an epic voice over with flashing scenes of mayhem? I would have expected more from a promo video. It seems obvious to me that they are banking on the popularity of the Angry Birds brand and the Star Wars brand to sell this new game, regardless of the actual content...

AB Space is still on iTunes top10 (paid games) in most countries. It sells like a pig

In US store: bad Piggies 1. and Space 7. In some other countries there is also original AB in top10.

It's a perfect product. There is always more people who have not tried it yet than ppl who have completed it. After Xmas there is millions new iOS/Andrdoid owners more who are eager to get their hands on it.

Wonder how many iOS devices are bought to kids just because of Angry Birds?

I know one 6 year old boy who is total AB addict. He has to have all their merchandise and he drinks only AB can's. Multiply that with few million kids around there world. Add SW to that equation and you need quite many zeros to calculate the money they are making

Star Wars? At this point of the Angry Bird's life, I think a tie-in with Jaws would be more appropriate.

Clearly the next episode of the Angry Birds franchise should be:

Angry Birds : Happy Days!
In which the main goal is to ensure the bird's trajectory lands them safely on the other side of the shark.

Wow, they're really trying to squeeze every last drop from this, aren't they? I think there is still quite a big market for Angry Birds though, since budget Androids and older iDevices are making their way into more and more people's hands these days - Bringing Angry Birds to people who haven't gotten over it yet.

I am looking forward to this, if Space was any indication of what they have planned for this game, great. Hope we get some kind of ridiculous light saber use (beyond them standing in for the slingshot.)

It'll be the most fun I have had with Star Wars in long time.
