In six years they've managed to only put out the same game twice, and a bunch of garbage mobile games. I'm incredibly confused about what the hell EA is doing with this license.

From Reddit:

If you look at the six years between say... 2002 and 2008, we had the following games, (excluding kiddy titles, shit mobile tie ins, and not double counting expansions of already listed games):

Bounty Hunter, Galactic Battlegrounds: CC, Attack of the Clones, Racer Revenge, Jedi Starfighter, Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, Star Wars Galaxies, KOTOR1, Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, Rogue Squadron III, Battlefront, KOTOR2, Republic Commando, Revenge of the Sith, Battlefront II, Empire at War, LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Star Wars II, LEGO Star Wars Complete, Battlefront: Renegade Squadron, and The Force Unleashed.

6 years, 20 games spanning FPS, RTS, third person action game, flight combat games, MMO and racing games.


Not all of those games were winners. But at least we had any games at all.

Are we talking about Star Wars or Halo?

 

Yes.

Yeah, Halo is one of those series' that is definitely guilty of having a lot of plot elements kinda fly under the radar, especially for first-time or casual players. A lot of important characters, backstory, and overall plot information is contained within the plethora of expanded universe material. At the time of Halo 2's release, there was already 3 novels and graphic novel that definitely provided more context for the events and characters than you could find in the games. Not 'mandatory reading' by any means, but pretty helpful.

 

Also, Halo CE:A and Halo 2:A both contain terminals scattered throughout their respective campaigns that play short-ish, animated comic-style videos that shed light on a lot of stuff. You may have stumbled upon a few during your play through so far, but they are kinda disjointed if not viewed in order.
