SWG: Creepiest Holiday Ever?

So now Ewoks fly.  And we’re expected to love them instead of powering up our AA batteries (that’s anti-aircraft, not anti-aliasing) and having a turkey shoot?  I think that’s unreasonable.

Best quote from the holiday page:

During the Festival of Love, tribe members prepare meals, dance, and sing traditional songs, such as this ancestral chant often heard drifting through the treetops of the forest moon:

Dugun duca lula ludia nuna, dounga, luna nudia!

No wonder the Empire wanted to dominate their planet — it’s just too bad they didn’t just drop a few nukes in to finish the job.

I’m also assuming that this painting doubles as the portal to Ewok Hell or somesuch:

ARGH! KILL IT WITH FIRE!

Thanks to KIASA for making my day with this!

    Totally agree. This is a complete failure to combine the cuteness of cupid (ewok babies), with wings, and neon pastel colors of love in a painting while you drink a purple drink (grape soda?).

    Oh SWG. My first MMO. How far you have fallen.

    Hey! Maybe the few devs still running this game are thinking of ridiculous ways to mess with it while they wait for it to die when SWTOR comes out.

    Way to jump the shark, SWG. @_@

    Ewoks freak me out. Always have, always will. And Lucas only invented them so he could sell more merchandise. Bah 😦

    Wotcha everyone,
    This is just another sign that Star Wars and real-world festivities just do not mix. As if the Star Wars Holiday Special wasn’t proof enough…
    I hope Bioware are taking note.
    Cheers,
    Hawley.

    I think the new devs are purposely doing this shit to piss off the vets. They probably sit around laughing about it while sharing a crack pipe.

    This festival has been around for a while, and while it’s not continuity-defining, it is actually pretty funny.

    I love it. While my sub is running out tomorrow, unless I decide to renew, I am sure to log in to get the flying ewok. And that painting is awesome.
