The Dark Times is a Star Wars Battlefront II mod with a heavy single-player focus. It adds many new features to the game, including (but not limited to!) wave modes, randomized units, heroes, and skyboxes, and AI hero support. Its sequel, Rising Son, adds more of the above as well as several new maps and scripted missions.
I loved the campaign in this mod. The class system was greatly improved by having different special classes on different maps. My only problem with this mod is when you have to escort the Mon Cal engineers on the Mon Cal level, they will kill each other if you have FF on.
My Absolute Favorite part of this mod is the Mon Calamari Space map, I have oodles of fun on that map. I recommend playing it with a Flight sim joy stick (I use the Logitech Attack3).
I downloaded this mod and it is flawless. I failed to locate any moderate and\or major inconsistencies. I havent't found any bugs yet and that makes it well over impressive since I've had it for a while. The maps are a labor of love. Nothing seems out of place or dull. This mod is among the best and should have a place in the history of battlefront 2 modding, nay, modding in its entirety.
This mod is fantastic. The custom levels are spot-on and everything feels like an actual part of the game. The new game modes (especially Wave) are absolutely awesome and everything is worth playing over, thanks to the random heroes and villains. Speaking of heroes and villains, They are one of the highlights of the mod. There are LOTS and they are each different and cool in their own way. One of my personal favorite maps is the Coronet Rail because being packed into a small, high-speed train with a blaster rifle feels very exciting.
