Star Wars: Battlefront 3 – Evil Obi Wan Kenobi

This would have been one hell of an idea if it had gone through. Apparently they were supposed to introduce an “Evil Obi Wan Kenobi” into the rumored Battlefront 3. These images were leaked by the former employee ofFree Radical, the same person that leaked the concept art. This has got to be the coolest looking Obi Wan Kenobi ever!

These are such things as dreams are made on, the colorful concepts of dying developers, the universes that will never be.

A recent glimpse into the unpublished works of a now-defunct game developer shows us one such universe which includes fabled Star Wars good guy Obi-Wan Kenobi, corrupted and evil.

In the original concept art for the unannounced, but long-rumored-to-exist video game Star Wars Battlefront III, we get a chance to wonder what could have been had Obi-Wan Kenobi fallen to the temptations of the Dark Side.

The images, leaked by a former developer at Free Radical, show a yellow-eyed, hunched form in the tattered remnants of the robe made famous by Alec Guinness. His hands are gnarled and claw-like, his light saber not a heroic blue, but a malignant red.

Traditionally, George Lucas has always approved any change to Star Wars canon, though it’s unclear if this rumored idea would have changed canon or created a new one. But it does make this particular tidbit far more interesting than your average leaked game designs. Maybe Lucas is playing around with the idea of flipping his beloved, Wookiee-packed universe on its head

    i agree with mablung, partly, its always fun to think up parallel history,especially sinse people who play SWBF are more than not ready for fresh characters, whether based off of previous characters or completely new
