I don't like the new interface. It looks a lot cheaper than the old, simplistic one.

The interface sucks. But the background music is great. Sounds much better than in the real game...

This is the first time I've seen an app I've used on the iPhone lose features with an "update". I'd revert if I could to the previous one, but somehow all those versions are now gone from my system. Shame on me for not backing up.

While I know the developer probably got pressured into this by Lucasarts marketing into making this just an ad for TFU, taking away what made it a fun app is just wrong. I'd have no problem if they enhanced it to make it better, but this isn't an enhancement.

Where's my purple lightsaber!?!

I don't want to play a predetermined Jedi character (who's only option is their color of "their" lightsaber), I want to play me as a Jedi (with my own choice of lightsaber color).

Until they bring back the features that made it fun in the first place, I'm removing it from my iPhone.

Damn backing-up...

I completely agree. But I'm doubtful that they'll update this, since it's basically just an advertisement now.

I doubt it too. Just means it will be permanently off then, if not deleted.

I mean, they could have at least attempted to make it a pretty ad, but I guess even that was too much to ask for.

I got so excited when I saw it but like everyone has been saying IT IS an ad.

I don't think it works that way. You can't just send me your version and expect it to work on mine. Unless I've misunderstood, Apple DRM will not allow that to happen.
