3rd Time's The Charm

Lucas Arts announced today that they will be making another attempt at an RTS game. The game, which is to be called "Star Wars Battleground", is a joint effort with Ensemble Studios, the designers of Age of Empires. The game is supposed to "usher in a new phase in the evolution of the RTS game". For a little more on the collaboration, here's a clip:
"From the first time I played Age of Empires, I knew someday LucasArts and Ensemble should work together to create the ultimate RTS franchise," says Simon Jeffery, president of LucasArts. "Gaming is evolving rapidly and fewer massively successful games are stumbled upon by accident. The market is more aware of what it wants, and consequently we are providing a marriage of superlative design, consummate technology, and an IP-based gaming universe with which most of the western world is familiar. In short, LucasArts very much views this as the birth of a market leading franchise"
For a little more head straight to the press release. I seriously hope they get it right this time, I want to stop some Ewoks with an AT-AT.
