    So tell us your thoughts on the gameplay. Was it clunky, smooth? Did playing it really give you that ” holy crap I am in the Star Wars Universe!”

    heh, we were not there. 🙁

    we will be at E3 though!

    seriously though we scoured the net all day for all of this info and then just put it up here for the community. I guess we did a good job if you thought we was there live! woot, win 😉

    My bad, it get’s kind of hard trying to keep up with all that were there tweeting away.

    You have done a terrific job of compiling all of this information though. You kept me up to date the whole day!

    Much appreciated!
