Star Wars: The Force Unleashed came to a pretty definitive conclusion (depending on the path you chose at the end of the game). No one knew exactly how the game would be able to have a sequel, especially since Starkiller never appears or is mentioned in the events of Star Wars which followed this game. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II may have been the one instance where the cloning on Kamino actually paid off as it has given another opportunity to play as this rouge Sith.
After being condemned by his former mentor, Starkiller escapes a detention block by ripping his way through Stormtroopers and droids alike. The series has taken a notably more brutal turn as Stormtroopers don’t just fall down after being hit by a lightsaber. They are actually ripped to pieces. It will be interesting to see if this carries over to gameplay or if it will just be used in the game’s cinematics. As seen in the original Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, droids and objects in the environment were often split to pieces. There is certainly a chance they could do the same with people in this game. The force powers also look to have been given a violent upgrade as one looks like it literally vaporizes enemies.

LA disappointsJune 17, 2010 at 7:09 pm
It will take a consistent run of games from LA that are actually finished and tested before I give it back its creed. They can come up with some of the best looking trailers but there is always some kind of big flaw with the game. Either the story is good but the game play sucks, the game play is decent but the story is crap, or my favorite, they release a pratially finished game. If this game actually goes through some good gameplay testing AND TOR doesn’t fail like galaxies fails now, then maybe I’ll be impressed by the next game LA announces, but if either of these games fails, I’m adding LA to my black list.
