Ok, ok, I know that I've already said my peace this morning, but while surfing this morning I came upon a line related to FFXII that officially pushes me over the edge. From the Gamespy review:
"The strange and colorful world of Ivalice might also be an acquired taste, and there's also what feels like a rather strong Star Wars influence (both trilogies) that could add to the worlds richness or just seem a little weird, depending on your personal take." [Emphasis my own]
Oh come on, a game that I was already looking forward to now apparently has a strong Star Wars influence...you had me at "Star Wars." See you in Ivalice.
