Star Wars Battlefront II is a shooting game based on the Star Wars films. There have been four games in the series and is similar to the main Battlefield series. The latest version is Star Wars Battlefront II that features gameplay from the Star Wars prequel films continuing up to The Last Jedi.

The older Battlefront games were developed by Lucasarts, there was then a long gap until the new games that are developed by EA. The games have in common, the Star Wars setting and normally revolve around two armies – the Galactic Republic versus the Confederacy of Independent Systems or the Galactic Empire versus the Rebel Alliance or First Order versus the Resistance – fighting each other on various maps.

Star Wars Battlefront II offers a single-player story mode, an online multiplayer mode and a customizable character class system. The single player campaign and sheer volume of Star Wars characters, vehicles and locations is a big reason people enjoy this. In Battlefront 2 the story is set Between the time of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.

Star Wars Battlefront II is Rated PEGI 16 for Violence. This game contains frequent depictions of realistic-looking violence towards human-like and fantasy characters. Combat consists of battles where characters use various weapons such as lightsabers and blasters. When characters are defeated they limply fall to the floor with no visible injuries shown. This game also contains sustained depictions of death to human-like characters. The majority of the gameplay revolves around combat with rival teams fighting against one another. When enemies are killed they fall to the floor and their bodies pile up and remain there for a short time.
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.

Rated for younger players in the US. ESRB rated TEEN, lower than the main Battlefield game that is rated MATURE 17+. Players use blasters, grenades, pulse cannons, and sniper rifles to defeat enemy soldiers, armored vehicles/spaceships, and iconic characters. Combat is frenetic with laser gunfire, explosions, and cries of pain. Some characters can use light sabers and Force powers to engage in close-up combat; a Force Choke move allows players to pick characters up off the ground by their throat, holding them in the air for a time.
