In spite of a number of innovative features (three health bars, choreographable dancing and music coordinatable between several players, "your own R2 unit and 3PO", programmable droids, and so on) a complete overhaul of the combat system, designed to simplify it and make it more action-oriented, actually drove away more people than it attracted. It soon thereafter retired to that great Sony one-fee-for-all stable of aging and also-rans in the sky.
Still on life support, it was preceded in death by Sony foster brother Matrix Online.

It's Star Wars. What kind of nerds do you call yourselves?
