A trilogy that could have been.
The Star Wars license is with EA right now and apparently will be for the next ten years. Reactions to the result of this -- Star Wars Battlefront -- have been mixed, but it has taken some serious flak for its lack of content while asking for full retail price. The game does look and sound beautiful, but according to the likes of YouTubers such as Totalbiscuit and Angry Joe, the game is quite a hollow experience and because of its terrible spawning system the YouTuber Worth a Buy dubbed it a "dying simulator." Star Wars games have always been a mixed bundle of results, never quite managing to hit the nail well and truly on the head but for many fans out there, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed series was a good effort... for the most part anyway.
Set between episodes three and four of the saga, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed at first tells the story from Darth Vader's perspective as he is hunting a Jedi Master who is in hiding on the Wookie home world of Kashyyyk. As he finds the Jedi and is getting ready to kill him, Vader discovers his son and kills all who have seen him, even his own men, as he takes him to be his secret apprentice. The child grows up to become Starkiller and Vader dispatches him to hunt down remaining Jedi with the ultimate goal of assassinating the Emperor and ruling the galaxy together. Along the way, Starkiller begins his journey to the Jedi side of the force, and his redemption, as he ultimately faces off against Vader, and then the Emperor, and his death serving as a martyr for what would become the Rebel Alliance. That ending, however, would be what happens if you chose to fight the Emperor at the end. If the player were to choose vengeance and fight Vader, he and his friends would be killed and he would be resurrected as the Emperor's cyborg assassin. This alternative storyline would be explored in two of the three DLCs that would be available.
