Maybe this dog should be leashed?

Here at the offices people are a little bit split on Star Wars : The Force Unleashed. I for one found it to be boring and repetitive and not much fun at all. Others hailed it as the greatest Star Wars game since Shadows of the Empire. Apparently enough of you were in the second camp that LucasArts decided to make a sequel (ok, let's be honest, they were making a sequel no matter what). Of course, if you finished the first game, you might be wondering how there could be a direct sequel... I guess maybe it is sort of like how Sean Connery could be in Highlander 2 after getting his head chopped off in the first movie (btw, the answer to that was "magic").

Released in 2008, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed remains the fastest-selling Star Wars game ever, with sales of nearly seven million units worldwide. The action game garnered numerous accolades including the WGA Award for outstanding achievement in writing for videogames.

With Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, the epic story continues as players once again assume the role of the devastatingly powerful Starkiller - Darth Vader’s secret apprentice set during the largely unexplored era between Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.

“Executive Producer Haden Blackman and his team have been able to build on the core foundation of the award-winning original and create a powerful combination of engrossing story-telling and intense action. The Force Unleashed II gives fans an opportunity to wreak havoc on an even greater scale in the Star Wars universe,” said LucasArts’ President Darrell Rodriguez.
