While there are certainly enough vehicles in the Star Wars universe to make a racing game, the challenge would be to make a Star Wars game and not just a generic Space Ship game.
If you take the Iconic Star Wars ships, then there are only really five or six that instantly say 'Star Wars'. Beyond that, you're getting into muddy waters where the average person won't recognize the vast majority of the ships, as they only ever appear for a few moments in the films or, not at all.
You're right about the 3rd person element, but I can't see Dice going that route. Maybe they could, but all their games from the last 10 years suggest not.
As FPS's go, I think Dice do a good job of giving your character 'personality / an identity' even though you never actually see them, beyond the class selection screen. The class system is the obvious method that they could use to define a character. But there are other things like voice acting, animations, weapon design, sound design (Dice are acknowledged masters) HUD elements - Imagine the variation in HUD between playing as a Stormtrooper, Wookie, Human, Droid etc.
Then throw all that onto the Battlefield template and, IMO, it's a perfect fit. Up until the official announcement for Battlefield 4, forums we're littered with people screaming for a sequel to BF 2142 - A Sci-Fi FPS - and now we have this.
Bottom line is, I'm a fan of both Battlefield and Star Wars so if this happens I'll be the happiest pig in shitsvil.
