    I think majority are disappointed because Star Wars don't tend to relate to a "Life Simulation" genre.

    Let me tell you about my life ... 🤪

    cqnNzGhm.jpg

    I'm the Biker Scout trooper! Part of a costuming group that does charity events and things.

    So yeah, it relates.

    Your life isn't a game.... But good on you on for the charity events and all that ❤️

    That's true, my life isn't a game. But Star Wars is a pretty big part of my life. I've been a long time fan. When I broke my leg in 2015, if it hadn't been for me playing Knights of the Old Republic on a near 24/7 basis and watching The Clone Wars on Netflix, I probably would have gone insane. I was Darth Revan that year for Halloween; which was a huge motivation to get me back on my feet and moving forward after my accident. It even got me pretty motivated to go back to school and finish my degree, and the last class I took at university was a Star Wars film studies class that really meant a lot to me.

    So I'm pretty chuffed about a Star Wars game pack and what it means for my enjoyment of game play, although I recognize it's not for everyone.

    I'm glad you are a big fan of star wars! Enjoy the new game pack! I'm sure it will be fun for you! :) happy gaming!

    Thanks! I'm going to make my 501st family as simselves and take them all to Batuu. It's been really hard not seeing them all, because they're a great group of folks and mean a lot to me with what we do, and chatting with them on Zoom is fun and all, but it's not the good times we've had. It's not real life of course, but it's what I got right now. Just keepin' positive till we can all troop again.

    Don't care. I think they deserve this hate. I'm plenty disappointed. I've had my opportunities to play Star Wars as a franchise. I'd reach for those games if I wanted to play Star Wars or anything related.

    Sooooo, that's a lightsaber, huh? Okay...

    Look, with any cult classic or fan favorite, you're going to get some nerds really, really excited and the rest of the population is going to be alienated. I would be over the moon if the Sims 4 worked with Middle Earth Enterprises to bring the elves, dwarves, and halflings into the game, but guess how many people would hate it? Lots.

    I don't like Star Wars. I never have. The first movie, which was the best IMO, was still underwhelming for me. I've never understood the attraction at all. But there's a lot of people who adore it. So either way, the Sims team had better be ready for a lot of people who are disappointed because it isn't their cup of tea, and then the die-hard fans who are going to love it. Fandoms are divisive. They always have been.

    So, I'll go back to playing other games. Sometime next year, I'll pop in and see if the Sims team has done anything noteworthy. There are other life simulations currently in development that are starting to look more promising anyways.

    I feel like I’m witnessing history. I wonder if the team will comment.

    I doubt it, eco had a lot of dislikes and the whole fiasco with the 20th anniversary and they were both completely ignored.

    The one thing that makes me kind of mad (and I could be totally wrong) is that it looks like they invested way more money into this pack than others. That's just so unfair. Like did Disney throw money at them? Did EA think that because it would maybe pull in Star Wars fans into the Sims that they were willing to spend more money? It really frustrates and upsets me. The CAS items alone had to cost way more money than normal.

    Sadly I am guessing the same, I bet Disney did throw more money at them.

    Meh. It doesn't represent the silent majority. I'd be interested in seeing how it does in sales, but we'll probably never know because maxis doesn't share that info.

    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.
    Lol! I was a very young adult in 1977, in fact I was in my second year of college, and I got married that year. My hubby and I both loved the star war movies. I thought Hans Solo was a hunk! I still love sci-fi. I have to say I’m a bit out of place with these newer Star Wars movies, though I have seen most of them with my young adult daughter and her boyfriend. Being older I was more than a bit disappointed when Hans Solo died, But, I lost my own husband 14 years ago to cancer, so maybe it’s a bit fitting. I’m going to have to get the books and read them!

    I’m not quite sure how I’m going to fit this into my sims stories. I’m not sure if it’s a vacation world, or if you can live there. I hope they include a hotel lot and casino stuff to this package. If they do I can see taking vacations there and looking at it as sort of an amusement park type vacation world. I hope that if the aliens are not real aliens, but just dressed in outfits that they are not from my home worlds.... lol. Am I excited? I’m not sure.... lol. It’s definitely something different!

    No, judging by the likes/dislikes ratio on the trailer, it's mostly positive... ish. 93k likes vs 39k dislikes. This trailer is getting bombed, though. I've never seen such a reception, especially one about Star Wars. But I do understand it.

    I was, like, oh wow, so cool, but didn't see any sarlacc in the trailer or mention in the blog or something. So I went over to your thread and read everything your posted there, but I think you're confusing sarlacc with sabacc. Sabacc is a card game, and I've indeed seen a sabacc game table in the trailer. A sarlacc is a 100 meter long carnivorous creature that burrows in the ground, leaving only it's maw at the surface, and takes about 1000 years to digest it's prey (painfully and keeping it unnaturally long alive)... It could have been a cowplant reskin or something? Oh well, bummer.

    Honestly I’m not excited for this. Some people don’t like stars wars and this type of stuff isn’t the “normal” for people. I’m probably not getting this myself so enjoy those whom are excited

    First, some off-topic honesty: I just love your picture @KaeChan2089 (I was big Sailor Moon fan)

    To put my opinion on the whole Sims series lately gently, I think they stopped caring what the fans/players think. They know there are so many of us that no matter what they make, enough people will still buy it to give them a crazy profit.
    They simply don't care about their product, just that it makes them money.

    (All of this anger and disappointment, I still have hope the game will get better...I've played Sims too long to give up on it at this point.)

    Thanks so much for the sweet comment <3.

    I've been saying it for years they don't care.
    But I personally don't mind a SW pack xD

    The thing is, even many Star Wars fans are upset and disappointed with this pack... because it's pointless. If we wanted to play a Star Wars story, we'd be buying and playing one of EA's Star Wars games... there was absolutely no reason for them to make an entire pack revolving around Star Wars.

    I guess good for those who were anticipating this?

    To me, the fact is this is a Game Pack… so, StrangerVille Ep. 2?

    I do feel that this might end up disappoint a large portion of SW fans because it will not be as expansive as true SW games, and avid Sims players because many are confused why this came to be.

    Disney make me hate Star Wars and now EA make me hate Sims 4. What a great time to be alive.

    I understand people are frustrated because they don’t seem to listen & give us what we truly need in this game to make it better. For a long time sims 4 has not been the same sims I knew & loved growing up. They truly have lost touched on their fan base & the sims franchise. I love Star Wars I truly do & at first I was a bit happy about it but truthfully what will this offer? I don’t see much replay on this so far. This pack seems way out of touch from the sims. I would have preferred a new occult type but Star Wars? This pack feels a bit childish from the looks of it & I hope for their sake this is executed really well & not watered down to kidish. I will still reserve judgment until we see more details but I truly hope that those surveys they gave us does improve the quality of this game. It’s sad to see many people divided over a decision that probably wasn’t even the gurus ideas. You have to remember EA controls them now & i’m sure some gurus felt this was definitely not something the fan base would be happy about . Take your frustration out on EA & Disney but not the gurus.

    It may be as EA/Maxis unlike previous versions notice that some features are restricted to certain packs and may be thinking this pack will be limited and not available to all neighborhoods which for me sticks out like an sore thumb and it just limits creativity within the whole game in general like CL in which you can't build apts from stratch and it limited to neighbors, EL and CL. I do not dislike it until I get more info on it.

    I honestly think a space pack would of been better with just small references to Star Wars. But not a whole pack dedicated to the brand.
