This is totally the best Star Wars Battlefront Easter egg

Okay, this is it. Forget the Wilhelm scream or any other nod to the films, lore or cast - this is the greatest Star Wars Battlefront (opens in new tab) Easter egg.

It's a reference to this famous moment from the film:

You're looking at the Stormtrooper on the right just in case you missed it. Clearly visibility in those helmets isn't great, which might go some of the way to explaining the Empire's legendary bad aiming.

One of the more amazing things about that blooper is that it took so long to be discovered. It wasn't until the film was released on video years later that anyone noticed. Did they leave it in the film for fun? Did no one see it during editing? Whatever the reason it's a classic bit of the movie and great to see it referenced in the game.

Seen something newsworthy? Tell us!
