Sneak Peek at Star Wars; The Force Unleashed

by Edward Webb

About two weeks ago, Mr. Kamshaft from here at XBA was invited by LucasArts to visit their studios in San Francisco and get some one-on-one time with their new game, “Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.” Apparently, three thousand miles was a little far to go for a one hour presentation, so he extended the invitation to me. By pure coincidence, I actually had business in the Bay Area on the 1st, which was in their window for dropping by the studio.


I was met in the lobby by a member of their PR team, and escorted to a corner office. Inside the office there were multiple HD televisions, with a PS3, 360 and Wii version of the game hooked up, plus the DS and PSP versions sitting on a coffee table. I watched the intro loop a couple of times before we fired up the game.


I’ll avoid any spoilers, but if you’re checking into the game at all, you’ll want to at least know the general premise of the game. Within the Sith order, there are only two: Master, and Apprentice. In this case, the Master is Emperor Palpatine, and the Apprentice is Darth Vader. The Emperor has ordered all Jedi, including Jedi in training, to be killed. A few have escaped, and Vader is sent out to clean up the stragglers. During one of these missions, he runs across someone that he decides would make his own good apprentice, and violating the Sith rules, he trains him outside of the watchful eye of his own Master.

You got me a TIE for Father's Day again?
