Damn, the marketing people attached to Star Wars: Battlefront are good.
Electronic Arts just dropped a new trailer for the multiplayer game that puts you into the shoes of a random stormtrooper or Rebel soldier during the major battles of the original movie trilogy, and it knows exactly who the game’s audience is. That’s 30-something Star Wars fans who desperately miss playing with action figures because adulthood is the worst.
If you number in that category, as many of us undoubtedly do, then you might find the trailer pretty powerfully emotional. If, instead, you think the Gen-X/Millennial folks are a self-indulgent lot forever clinging desperately to childhood, well, you can enjoying being a mean cynic while you’re not being invited to the Battlefront LAN party when the game drops in November.
