    Well, but at least James Turner loves this pack. I wonder if other EA Game Changers will "pretend" to love it just to please their EA overlords.

    curious to know what Plumbella thinks.

    Isn't it wonderful that nobody is forced to buy the pack? B)

    This is like a builder stopping work on a house's laundry room, knitting room, and wherever you do your composting to build a treehouse garage for your car, game room, and pool on the same property. It’s cool I guess and fun!

    Mmm... better now (although you're not wrong that the game needs an overhaul to have more depth, however that's for free update and not paid for DLC)

    @Naus It's definitely going to be interesting watching them try and convince their audiences that it's good. Especially the builders, since the items will probably only work for a few types of builds.

    While this is a tangent some people will love (and I’m genuinely pleased for you Star Wars fans) it’s a) not my cup of tea and b) not what I think we really need in the game. It’s seems a little...pointless and random (and a cash grab). I don’t believe other franchises or fandoms belong in the Sims personally. Didn’t like the Diesel or Katy Perry Sims 3 packs and didn’t like Moschino part from the added extras it added to actual gameplay.

    But if this is the route EA are taking us then I demand a Harry Potter and a Lord of the Rings Game Pack please!! Also we can throw werewolves into Harry Potter if y’all are being lazy.

    I shall personally not be buying it. The only pack I will not own so far is this one. I even bought Eco Lifestyle (boo! Lol)

    I so love it! It will go perfect with my Futuristic Game Save. Plus, I've been a fan of Star Wars since 1977. I used to have a big crush on the hot young Mark Hamill & wanted to be Princess Leia when I grew up. I even had a Luke Skywalker & Princess Leia dolls until it got lost in one of my family's moves. When I was a young adult I read the Star Wars novels to the point that when Disney did their own version of the continuing story I was so disappointed. Poor Luke didn't have his beloved wife Jade.
    Leia & Han didn't have their twin children.

    I think it's quite sad that the community react in such a childish way. We know practically nothing yet. The younger simmers might be disappointed though - they are used with getting all shades of pastels, and now they get a space theme that was new in the 80s (?) and that is kind of nostalgia for the senior simmers. Poor kids ;)

    Oh, I expect the glitches, but I don't care. Even Sims 3 never had this.

    At least this gives me lots of time to explore the other packs that I haven't totally explored yet.

    I am not surprised at all, I personally have no interest in this pack either, but I am not gonna hate on it or on those that like it. I simply won't buy it. Just saves me money in the long run. I do hope this isn't the direction they are going to continue with though, as it will spell the end of me buying more packs for sims 4. My wallet will thank them though.

    I am one of the very much older simmers. I was expecting disappointment and they delivered. But then, I am not into star wars. I even wish the bloatware we have in the base game could be permanently removed. My expectations for this iteration are so low.

    So, what is the difference between playing around with a lightsabers with your kids in real life, and your Sims playing around with lightsabers in the game?

    .

    I suppose I’m considered a “senior simmer” since I’m over the age of 30. Although we practically don’t know much I do know enough to determine this isn’t for me or my play style. This, even though I am a Star Wars fan. Love the movies and avidly played SWTOR. If I’m nostalgic I’ll watch the movies or play the games.

    On top of that I have no plans on buying anything from this team until they fix the bugs that ruin my gaming experience. I’m not the type of individual to go on a rampage over it, I don’t like it, won’t buy it. I do see the positive, more money saved that can be used for other games I play.

    The lightsaber with my "kids" isn't real and is based from a particular movie sequel which is sci-fi adventurous movie genre. The game is a life simulation? Not a movie sequel.

    Again if this game pack is for you then that's great! I'm just stating a general opinion based on why a part of the community dislikes the new game pack

    Lightsabers. Full stop. Period. But also exclamation marks (!!!! - yes, plural). Can I state this as a general opinion on why part of the community likes the new game pack?

    Also, is it too much to hope for a new death: death by lightsaber? Oh, oh, even better, do we get a Sarlacc?
  • NindigoNindigo Posts: 2,764 Member
    @Finbar659 No worries, I was just curious. To me, both things are in the make-believe genre and something to do for fun :)

    It's a "life simulation" with ghosts, vampires, mermaids, wizards, plant people and, yes, aliens. I don't think that's it.
