Star Wars Discussion / Re: The severely disappointing story in Disney/EA's Battlefront II (spoilers)« Last post by Illidan Stormrage on November 16, 2017, 07:19:16 PM »
See, there's the story we could have had. You could have kept Iden Versio's disapproval of Operation Cinder, but you needn't have had her defect to the Rebels/Republic. It might have made a better story if she upheld her ideals in the Empire and worked as a Special Forces Agent to sabotage Operation Cinder from inside. With that out the way, she continues as an Imperial to the Battle of Jakku where again she must retreat from the conceded battle. From that point on, she could have been a character watching the remnants of the Empire crumble around her while still holding strong to the Imperial dream. You could have had missions ideal for a Special Forces Operative in a Cold War - intel, assassinations, extractions, political manipulation, until eventually she is invited to join the fledgling First Order - no need to give away plot details that the Story Group may wish to expand upon later.Their is a way to fix this and I know how.
I will use italics to explain.
After the part where Del is killed we hear voices call out to him. Del wakes up in his Inferno Squadron Armor to find Gideon telling him ot get up. Suffering from shock and panic he attacks Gideon but is stun as Gideon says something about how he remembers it all wrong. We then find out Del was in some sort of twisted Cryopod and that Iden is next to him in another. Gideon opens Iden's Cryopod and she reacts the same way. We then play this segiment as Gideon as he along with a couple of Imperial Stormtroopers help evac Iden and Del to a shuttle. They are attack on the way their by strange New Republiic forces that have strange markings. Gideon, and the stormtroopers along with the knocked-out Iden and Del make their escape in shuttle as the base explodes. Iden and Del wake up chain to beds with Gideon sitting in a corner looking relieved. He explains they have been through a lot and aren't thinking straight. Iden and Del don't trust him after Operation: Cinder on Vardos. Gideon sighs telling them they do not know fact from fiction and that their Memories had been alter. Asking for proof Gideon displays holo footage of them fighting with the Empire on Jakku and footage from other engagements. That's when we find out that Iden and Del were victims of a extremist element of the New Republic who had changed their memories, but the memories began following back. We learn that not only did Operation: Cinder not target Vardos, but that they had their Memories Merged with two Rebel Soldiers who died at Jakku. They asked why and we learn of a shadowy rouge element of the New Republic that capture Iden and Del during the battle of Jakku and experimented on them. They were capture after Iden went with Del in their tie fighters to go and try rescue Iden's Father from his ship. They encounter a extremist Rebel group of boarded the star destroyer and capture Iden and Del. This group took Iden and Del to a Blacksite where they had their memories alter so they could be a new super soldier against the Empire. When asked how long they had been captured for Gideon tells them 2 years and that Vardos, Pillo, and other worlds have now become Imperial Holdouts. So dawning their helmets Gideon reflected how he always wanted to be in commanded, but its good to have Del and Iden back. Maybe have Del and Iden kiss? But it ends with them entering the deck of the Corvus and being greeted by Imperial soldiers looking to Iden for Guidance. Iden then gives a speech about how they are not just fighting for the future of the Empire, but Vardos and Order. She then orders to make the jump to Vardos as the game either ends, or the game continues showing Inferno Squadron beyond the Battle of Jakku.
Their. I just made a genius solution to our problem.
also like to mention this was the original description of Inferno Squadron
In 4 ABY, Iden, Hask and Meeko participated in the Battle of Endor. They were on the forest moon when the Rebels destroyed the second Death Star. After this, they sought to avenge Emperor Palpatine, who had perished on the station.[3In 4 ABY, Iden, Hask and Meeko participated in the Battle of Endor.
