It's still one of my favorite aspects of the entire Star Wars universe, the game was incredibly fun as well. Better than DroidWorks.
What it did do was give some background and character to the setting, without these smaller extra things then it would just be incredibly dull and linear. That reason alone is enough to keep me from the Indiana Jones boredomfest.
Something like Kotor and the death matches.
I've only played KOTOR:II and it was one of the most boring games I've ever played. I do like games that are more story based, but I think Myst spoiled me with good story and gameplay (for it's kind of game) while KOTOR2, I was told was one of the best games of all time by the guy at Gamestop, was nothing but just a huge disappointment. I grew up with Dark Forces and it's sequels, Battlefront, Ep. 1 Racer, and DroidWorks, so I was expecting the game to be somewhat fun.
Like CoD, Zelda, Final Fantasy and Uncharted, I can't get into the stories and background of those because of the gameplay being so unappealing and the opposite of fun. That's why I'm such a big Bethesda fan - They can make games with great story, settings and backgrounds along with gameplay that is just right (or modular enough to tweak to your own liking) and I'm not just attributing these traits to TES and Fallout. Dishonored and RAGE, two games they published that are still very good and leave me wanting more. I haven't played any other series or any of the old Beth sports games except Brink, and that was just a huge failure.
But, like I've stated before, this is all my opinion. Feel free to call me out on this, but I doubt I'll change my mind.
