    Agreed. I was so disappointed with the length of the game. Could have been alot better in my opinion. The download content was just as short.

    That's good news! The first one was good enough that I'd be excited about a new game. Fingers crossed too for a new Battlefront.

    I second that! I will buy a new Force Unleashed, but I'll line up for a midnight release of a new Battlefront

    I don't know if LucasArts is even alive. At most they just publish games, I don't think they've made a game in years. I'd like to see a TFU3, but they better put more effort into it. TFU2 was too much of the same thing over and over. It wasn't as cool as the first.

    I wasn't a fan of either of the two previous Force Unleashed games. They both just had this rushed, unpolished, incomplete feel to them. If they are making a third one, I seriously hope they take their time on it.

    LucasArts hasn't been developing games in-house since the early 2000s, actually. They're just a publishing house anymore. All their talent went to other companies (DoubleFine, Totally Games, etc.). And frankly, as publishers, I think they've had more misses than hits. Financially they did well, but their games have at best been mediocre also-rans, and at worst abject crap. There are a few standouts here and there, but they're the exceptions to the rule.

    That, and frankly, I'd prefer a little less of the doofy over-the-top "The Force can do ANYTHING" stuff. Like, no more backflipping to slice an AT-ST in half or yank a Star Destroyer out of the sky or whathaveyou.

    I loved Yahtzee's review on both games. The original trilogy depicts Luke as being this last hope for the Jedi even though all he could do was wince real hard at his lightsaber before it finally floated towards his hand. Yet in Force Unleashed, here is a hero who is in the universe around the same time as Luke pulling off feats that makes the entire Star Wars universe look like it was made out of empty cardboard boxes.

    Remember the original Star Wars movies didn't over use the lightsaber or force powers? The first two movies only had one real duel, and the Force was only used when it was absolutely necessary to overcome an obstacle? Not using these abilities all the time can help emphasize on just how important and delicate they are. I'll give an example. The Luke/Vader duel in Empire Strikes Back was pretty much the only real Lightsaber fight in the whole entire film outside of Luke's vision on Dagobah. It had build up, tension and force to it. In Revenge of the Sith with Obi-Wan/Anakin's duel, it literally feels like just another duel out of the four other duels that came before it in the same freaking movie.

    In a nutshell, don't give us too much awesome or else it just becomes redundant and boring. Oh, and another Star Wars protagonist who just happens to be male. I can't wait to see what this fun fruit roll up will roll up with next.

    I just find Jedi God Mode boring. Plus, it allows for lazy game design. Just keep throwing waves of dumb stormtrooper cannon fodder at the lone hero and watch him slice, dice, throw, pull, push, and crush everything in his path. It's the same * gameplay since Wolfenstein 3D, basically, and it bores me. I mean, say what you will about the formulaic nature of games like the Battlefield and COD series, but at least they give you competent friendly AI to back you up.

    I dunno. I'm just tired of one-man-army games, and I'm ESPECIALLY tired of freakin' JediJediJedi. I'm reasonably certain that, at one time, the Star Wars universe consisted of more than just Jedi, the cannon fodder they killed, the "sith bosses" they fought, and assorted "speaking-role-only NPCs".

    Well, when I say "jedi god mode" I don't mean literally god mode. I mean the fact that you play a Jedi who is basically unstoppable. The "you against the world" approach, really. It gets old to me. Actually, though, if I'm being completely honest, I'm bored with Jedi in general.

    Now, if they had a Kinect game where you could play it with fill 1:1 mapping, including being able to duel your opponent, then THAT would be cool, but I have a hunch even that would get a bit old.


    I'm just tired of Jedi being the sole focus of Star Wars. I remember at time when there were other characters in that universe.

    I've played them, thought visually they were stunning, more TFU1 than 2. But story wise they are stupid.

    And like the others that mentioned it, the 1 vs the galaxy approach is just over done now. Give us something like Battlefront was.

    Are all of you missing the point of the game? The game is MEANT to be a one-man-army, Jedi God Mode game. Hence, the Force UNLEASHED. And as for being sick of the Jedi being the sole focus of Star Wars, that's ridiculous because that's the way it was made to be. The Jedi are the center of the Star Wars universe because they're the backbone of the franchise. And as far as the story goes, I agree... Except when you think of it like this. This isn't meant to be a standalone story. It's meant to be a bridge between the other Star Wars canon.

    Battlefront wasn't that good either, just bring back the "Dark Forces" games, just don't call them "Jedi Knight", call it "Imperial Academy" or something, starting out as a cadet or stormtrooper growing out to become an Imperial Officer/General/Admiral with a medal system like they had in the Tiefighter game, or a choice of becoming Sith or Jedi, more interactivity is the key to succes here.

    Please no OR type of games anymore, focus more on the movie franchises, Like Ninentendo did with the SuperNintendo games, but this time in first or 3rd person.

    im a big fan of star wars rebellion...... been trying for a week to get it to work on my win 7 laptop. HEHE

    Force Unleashed 1 was pretty good, cant say the same for 2. make a new game in the same style as dark forces. didnt you use a gun in half that game until eventually you get a lightsaber later on..

    I had fun with it, but yeah it was flawed. I played it after Battlefield 2 and couldn't help see the things they could have done. They just needed to straight rip off the BF series. You should be able to load up an AT-AT with troops and have drivers, gunners, a commander, etc. Same with the Republic Gunship. They let you have a pilot/driver and gunners, that's it.

    I also liked TFU. The first game. The second felt like cash grab with unimaginative and repetitive enemies. The first game repeated a couple of locations, which was my only complaint about it.

    I'd like a Dark Forces/JK, X-Wing/TIE Fighter, or Republic Commando (Imperial Commando?). Just give us anything. It's like LucasArts is out of business.

    There is the no Jedi to be seen Star Wars 1313 coming out soon. 3rd person linear gameplay. It's been announced for a while now so hopefully we will get a great play out of a complete game. I loved Dark Forces and Jedi Knight. (Kept my PS1 long past it's time just to keep playing Dark Forces on it lol).

    And Jedi may have been at the center if Star Wars, but in the OT, it was not in your face like the PT. and none of the OT force users were supermen. Even Yoda had his limits. But the PT and most force user games showed them to be almost unstoppable.

    It would be nice to see a space simulator again like the X-Wing and Tie-Fighter series.

    If it's canon, they should somehow tie in Kyle Katarn into this. Maybe during his trooper or mercenaries/pre-jedi days. I've always thought of these games as Jedi Knight on steroids.

    The 1st force unleashed was a good game. The 2nd one was total piece of crap for lots of reasons. Main reason it sucked so bad and was short is due to them canceling the project during the making. The game was to be a Triology , yet the head boss man said to stop it. he wasnt happen in the direction the game was taken on. So they stopped making boards n story lines were to be shorten to a end. The 2nd was just cleaned up a bit to finish off what was already made. which turned out to be about a half a game. The DLC was left of real game that wasnt finsihed at time. Bottom line it was a failure turned into a fast money grab. Now that Disney owns the whole Star wars / lucas company. i would hope that they will hand over the project to Square-enix. They worked really well with the Kingdom Hearts 2 games. Still waiting on the 3rd..not stupid * DS games.

    How do we start the petition? Or at least give us an HD remake of the darn games!!! We had some friends over a few weeks back to play this at our bar. It was a lot of fun, but tough to play because it looked like crap.

    :darnkids

    I wish we had a emoticon for people who were drinking or imbibed when they were typing. Because even though your typing and speech were fine, I can't help but imagine you completely sloshed at your keyboard as you typed that. Kind of like a 5'0 guy on beer muscles saying "I could take on those.....BLATRGHH.... I could take on thoooooose UFC fighters in a fight." You know it sounds ridiculous, but you cannot help yourself. :lol

    IIRC, they were sitting on an almost finished version of Battlefront III where you could seamlessly go from surface to space battles.

    I'm surprised that they haven't reworked that game for the new consoles. Perhaps with the next gen systems coming out we'll get a new version.
