As we draw closer to the Fall, November 17th to be exact, more details are slowly coming to light on EA Games’ newest entry into the Battlefront saga. It’s shaping up not only to be a game that will please frustrated fans of the first game, but also fill a very interesting part of canon – what will happen to the most loyal Imperials when their Empire no longer has an Emperor?
