Obsidian to pitch a new Star Wars RPG to Disney

Obsidian Entertainment, developer best known for their work on several existing RPG franchises such as Fallout: New Vegas and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2, has an idea for a new Star Wars game to pitch to LucasArts, now owned by Disney.

"We pitched a between-Episode III and Episode IV game [to previous Star Wars owner LucasArts]," Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart told RPS. "Because we think that timeframe is super interesting. It's the fall of the Republic, the extermination of the Jedi, it's Obi-Wan going off and making sure Luke is OK. You have the Sith, but you have the extermination of all Force users except for very, very few. So it was an interesting time to set a game, and you know, Chris Avellone came up with a really cool story."

Urquhart continued: "It’s something we’re still hoping for, even with the Disney/Lucas stuff going on. It changes things a lot, but you know, we’re gonna push on it. I would say it’s within the top three pitches we’ve ever come up with."

While Obsidian has not spoken with Disney yet, they seem very eager to push the game pitch into realisation.

"We haven’t [talked with Disney yet]. We’re kind of waiting for the smoke to clear. But that’s one of my next big things to do. To kind of go over there and [get the ball rolling again]."

I definitely back this idea. I loved the original and second Knights of the Old Republic back on the original Xbox's. They've aged a bit but they're still classic RPGs and probably are the best of BioWare and Obsidian's work.
if KoTOR 2 didn't have so many bugs (if it wasn't rushed) it would of been a great rpg, and a 3rd would have followed... took fans to make their own fixes for kotor 2 to become a least better then what it was... will buy this... or turn to the dark side trying.
KoTOR both one and two were awesome. I'd happily lap this up.

I agree to an extent. You could tell KOTOR 2 was rushed with the amount of glitches and exploits available. Obsidian were forced to cut two whole planets from the game as well and rush the ending to make deadline. Still, the 'Influence' system was one of the best systems in any game ever, and the story was great.
