There's a great article over at Gamespot UK where they report on the story that is doing the rounds on the internet that Star Wars Battlefront was 99% finished.  Actually according to a former Lucasarts employee it was far from finished and was more like at 75% finished of a mediocre game.

"This 99 percent complete stuff is just bullsh*t," a former LucasArts employee who wished to remain nameless told GameSpot. "A generous estimate would be 75 percent of a mediocre game."

The source also addresses the rumours that the game was sabotaged for financial gain.

"I was at LucasArts during this time, working on Battlefront III, and remember it well. Everybody from producers to marketing was 100 percent invested in making the relationship work," the source said. "We were desperate for a next-gen followup to Battlefront (the claim that the project was sabotaged for financial reasons is ludicrous. The [Battlefront] franchise was a huge money maker at the time). When Free Radical continually missed dates and deliveries, [former LucasArts presidents Jim Ward and Darrell Rodriguez] made many 'good will' whole or partial milestone payments to keep the project going."

Its a great article and well worth a read.  Click on the link below to read it now.
