    Well, here are the required specs for running Star Wars Battlefront from Apple's website-
    System requirements:
    Operating System: Mac OS X 10.3.6 or later
    CPU Processor: PowerPC G4/G5 or later
    CPU Speed: 1GHz or faster
    Memory: 256 MB or higher (512 MB recommended)
    Hard Disk Space: 2.7 GB free disk space
    Video Card (ATI): Radeon 8500 or better
    Video Card (NVidia): GeForce4 MX or better
    Video Memory (VRam): 64 MB or higher
    Media Required: DVD Drive

    So no, it looks the iBook G4s are left out. :(

    depends really. Could it possibly run on an iBook? yes. It depends if the game actually checks to see if you have a 64MB Vid card, if you don't it may not install, or it will just tell you. It may not check and it will install, but don't know how it would run on the iBook.

    The GPU is more than powerful enough, it has less VRAM though.

    If it doesn't actually check the VRAM, it'll run.

    I run it on an FX 5200 all the time and it runs on lower settings on a Radeon 9200 SE.
