Space battles are totally cool. New maps are bland and uncreative. Music saves the day.

I could say Battlefront 2's entry was really hyped, hype that was totally reliant on the success of its predecessor. I bought it, I liked it, the space battles blew me away. Pair the double barrel rolls with John Williams' score and it will give you a hell lot of goosebumps.
Then we go to the land missions. There were a lot of new additions, the Jedi being the best, its only limitation on my part wasn't the timer but the moves (Jedi Knight Academy Acrobatics would give BF2 a whole lot more of depth). Besides the those and the player upgrades, nothing else was cool. I thought to my myself that the bar wasn't reached, not defying the standards that its predecessor made. In my opinion, the maps were really flawed, especially the new Geonosis.
The ups here would be the great multiplayer experience. Another obvious one would be the tantalizing THXesque music.
