Battlefront II Story Review

One of the best Star Wars stories to date

Battlefront II Story Review

“Star Wars: Battlefront II” recently came out and the story mode is amazing! It bridges the gap perfectly between “Return of The Jedi” and “The Force Awakens” and is quite possibly one of my favorite Star Wars stories to date.


The story starts off with Iden Versio, who is part of an Imperial Special Forces squad known as Inferno Squad. The squad has two other members besides Iden, their names are Del Meeko and Gideon Hask. The first mission you play as Iden who has been “captured” on purpose by the rebel alliance in order to delete a message pertaining the Emperors plan over Endor. This mission involves mainly stealth and you really get a look at what is happening off screen in “Return of The Jedi.”

After that mission, the player is then playing as Iden again on Endor, just after the destruction of the shield generator and just before the Rebellion destroys the second Death Star. There is actually a cutscene when the second Death Star is destroyed which then prompts the Empire to evacuate the planet. I really enjoyed this mission, mainly because of the fact that we got to see how the Imperials were reacting to the destruction. Something we never really got to see in the movies.

The next few missions deal with Operation: Cinder which is basically the Empire destroying several planets including Idens home world of Vardos. Which prompts her and Dels decision to defect to the Rebel Alliance. This was something that I didn’t think i would like because the “Imperial Defecting to the Alliance” is so overused, but i actually really enjoyed it because it showed that Iden and Del were able to see the flaws in the Empire and defect. While it is believed that Iden will join the First Order in the expansion pack “Project Resurrection,” however this is still unknown.

The second half of the missions for the story are very different then the first, as they are very hero-based. Hero meaning Han Solo, Princess Leia and Lando Calrissian. while these missions are fun, they are kind of filler as in the end the missions don’t offer much to the story as a whole. Besides the Leia mission which is Leia defending Naboo after the Operation: Cinder satellites failed and the Empire is attacking the city.

The ending of the game is the Battle of Jakku which is one of most fun missions in the game. It has X-Wing combat, ground combat, and a boss battle with Hask, who has remained loyal to the Empire. It ends with Iden and Del sharing a kiss and it then flashes forward to 30 years later and Kylo Ren has tracked Del to Pillio. Kylo is looking for the map to Luke Skywalker which leads straight into “The Force Awakens”. He also mentions Del having a daughter which is possibly Rey. We won’t find out until “The Last Jedi”. Overall, the games story is very good.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
