Team Xbox has published an interview with Greg Borrud, director of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Naturally, this interview discusses some of the new features for the Xbox version of the game. Here's a quote:

Though they only very very vaguely have anything at all to do with LucasArts, we host them and lrrrv them greatly.

GameSpot has published Entry #1 for Hal Barwood's RTX Red Rock designer diary. This first entry deals with the woes of cutting parts out of the game as the production deadline looms closer. Here's a small glimpse into the process:
So, with a good cut to make, why is the process so tough? Because we're in schedule hell, with hard dates to make and not much time to make them. Each little featurette must be measured against time that could be spent honing up the frame rate, for example, on the PS2. And cuts can backfire.
PS2, eh? *sniff* In addition, the feature allegedly contains 37 new screenshots. Note for you Windows users: the screenshots will not appear if you've been monkeying around with your "hosts" file. Enjoy!
