As time has passed, the internet has slowly learned more about Free Radical's cancelled Battlefront 3 project. The idea was to expand upon Battlefront 2's grand battles, allowing a seamless transition from space dogfighting to ground combat.

Free Radical's efforts were eventually canned though, after a change in LucasArts leadership. But while it doesn't feature a full space to ground transition, the final mission of DICE's Battlefront echoes some of the spirit of the cancelled project.
