* DevelopmentHell: ''Battlefront III'' went through quite a bit of this, in spite of both titles in the ''Battlefront'' series being the most financially successful ''Star Wars'' games made up until that point. Free Radical's ''Battlefront III'' was a mostly finished beta, but went unreleased after the developer working on it was bought out. Then [=LucasArts=] tried making a TechDemoGame to lead into ''III''... Which got cancelled once Disney bought ''Star Wars''. [=LucasArts=] was then closed, seemingly ending the prospect of another ''Battlefront'' game. The ''Star Wars'' game rights were given to Creator/ElectronicArts, which left a lot of fans unhappy until they remembered that they own [[HopeSpringsEternal DICE]], the company that made the ''Battlefield'' games upon which the ''Battlefront'' franchise is based. It was then announced at E3 2013 that the game (simply retitled ''Battlefront'') was in production, with early gameplay footage revealed at E3 2014 and a release date set for 2015.

* {{Vaporware}}: ''Battlefront III'' became this, in spite of both titles in the ''Battlefront'' series being the most financially successful ''Star Wars'' games made up until that point. Free Radical's ''Battlefront III'' was a mostly finished beta, but was cancelled after they ran out of funds and closed down.[[note]]A number of former Free Radical staff members claimed that they were subjected to [[http://www.gamespot.com/articles/battlefront-3-was-99-percent-done-when-canceled/1100-6400833/ especially malicious]] ExecutiveMeddling that effectively sabotaged the game, while a former Lucasarts staff member claimed that [[http://www.gamespot.com/articles/former-lucasarts-employee-on-why-star-wars-battlefront-iii-failed/1100-6400936/ the game wasn't nearly as done as stated]], and accused Free Radical of funneling resources meant for the game to their own internal projects. And [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement that's all that's going to be said about that]][[/note]]. After Disney bought ''Star Wars'' and gave the game rights to Creator/ElectronicArts, they announced at E3 2013 that a new game in the series (simply titled [[StarWarsBattlefront2015 Star Wars: Battlefront]]) was in production, being developed by ''VideoGame/Battlefield'' developer DICE. Early gameplay footage was revealed at E3 2014 and the game itself was released on November 17, 2015.

* StreisandEffect: EA released an alpha for the 2015 game that was intended to be completely private. This backfired '''spectacularly''' when people uploaded footage of the game on various video websites, regardless of the NDA. More leaks popped up as soon as EA tried shutting existing leaks down. Luckily, the alpha was pretty solid, barring a few GoodBadBugs.

* AscendedFanon or IKnewIt: The methods that have been constantly brought up by fans for common infantry to kill Jedi (Actually using fully automatic fire, shotguns, shooting them with something bigger than small arms, abandoning MookChivalry) are the most effective way to kill the generic Jedi in campaign mode.
** Even these might not be enough, which is why there's the merry tactic of switching to a heavy trooper, taking out a landmine, and smacking the Jedi in the face with it.
