Will The Next Star Wars Video Game Star Boba Fett?

So, it's not exactly news that there's a new Star Wars game coming. (Guess what: There is!) But the name for which Lucasfilm has filed for a trademark actually is kinda interesting, in a speculation-y way.

The company has applied for a trademark on the name "Star Wars 1313" for an upcoming video game. This was spotted by fusible.com, who speculate that the game could star Bobba Fett, given that "CT-1313" was an alias that he once used on Aarganu.

You know what? While this is all rampant! speculation!, I actually think that a Boba Fett game would be great. That's largely because as much as I dig The Force, it does seem to be getting a bit played out in the video game setting. The Force has been unleashed one time too many, methinks.

A Dark Forces-like FPS or 3rd person cover-shooter starring Bobba Fett, featuring rocket-packs and non-jedi-specific storytelling and moral grey areas? I'm into it.

Then again, it's Lucasarts, and we all know how they love to… well… ruin things. So, I'm not holding my breath for excellence. We'll see.

    Definitely gonna be another kinect dancing game.

    "A Dark Forces-like FPS or 3rd person cover-shooter starring Bobba Fett, featuring rocket-packs and non-jedi-specific storytelling and moral grey areas? I’m into it."

    Which is exactly what we won't get.

    I don't see how Lucas Arts find it do difficult to produce games. They already have at their disposal, the two greatest things a game needs to succeed - a fan base and a story/character set that people will enjoy.
    Throw their budget into the equation and it's absolutely crazy that they constantly fail to produce!

    So... Star Wars: Bounty Hunter 2?

    Boba Fett has one B, how it could be right in the headline and wrong in the article twice is beyond me.

    Wasn't there already a Star Wars Bounty Hunter game? on PS2 if I recall..

    I would really dig an Uncharted-like Han Solo game.

      Star Wars: Bounty Hunter. I've still got it laying around for the GameCube (I think it was an exclusive). You play as Jango Fett and it tells the story of how he got to be the base model for the clone troopers. It wasn't ground breaking, and since the story deals with a lot of stuff that goes against Boba Fett lore it was a bit hard to get through, but gameplay-wise it was actually pretty good. With a bit more work and some current generation power it could be really interesting.

        Bounty Hunter was a fucking sick game.

    It could work... i loved Star Wars: Bounty Hunter... but maybe im alone on that one...

      I was obsessed with that game! Been waiting for SWBH2 for ages...

    I've dreamed of a Boba Fett-centered action/adventure (possibly open-world on Nar Shaddaa or a similiar shady location)... especially after playing Bounty Hunter on GameCube back in the day... I'd be willing to bet that we won't see anything remotely like that.

    *cough* *cough* Dark Void anyone......?
