Star Wars Battlefront 2 Dev On Showing A New Side Of The Empire With A Female Lead


GameSpot has the story.

Quote:
On Having A Female Protagonist

It's sad that the internet coming to terms with [female protagonists] because Star Wars has always been about strong female characters. And for us, telling an authentic Star Wars story had to go through a strong female protagonist. We wanted somebody who would be bold, headstrong, but also show an emotional side. So it made perfect sense for us that it would be Iden.

On Janina Gavankar's Performance

I haven't worked personally with Janina but my colleague who sits to the left of me at work, he's been to motion capture sessions and she's phenomenal. She's so enthusiastic, she's so happy to be working with us. We have a great collaboration with her. She's always giving 110 percent during our motion and facial capture sessions. I think it shows in the captures that we have. We have captures for cinematic and we have captures for gameplay as well. So when Iden does a melee takedown, that's Janina doing the melee takedown.

It's not so much gamers having a problem with female protagonists, as it is third-wave feminists freaking out when the protagonist is not female.

It is almost like everyone forgets that Samus Aran, Lara Croft, Cate Archer, Joanna Dark, Jill Valentine, among others, existed and were loved before these modern times.

Most people have never taken issue with strong female protagonists.

The problem is how politicized such a non-issue has become in recent years. The world has gone mad.

Remember folks, the writer behind Battlefront 2's story refers to Anita Sarkeesian as his "hero". Expect cringe and bad storytelling at least on par with Mass Effect Andromeda.

Stop being such a Libtard.


The issue isn't they're female, the issue is everyone has to "celebrate" the fact the character is female.


We've had female characters for years, fuck off, it isn't progress and it doesn't mean anything, its a story with a female lead character.


Really, you want it to be normal and equal you need to stop treating something that isn't that big of a deal as a "BIG DEAL OF DIVERSITY"

it stinks of forced feelings.

end of rant.
