Force Unleashed 2 is most def going to happen eventually, just like KotOR III. I would hope that Force Unleashed 2 focuses on Maris Brood and leads right up to A New Hope. Otherwise, Maris Brood's inclusion in the game is basically like wtf?

10-06-2008, 01:32 AM
Eh, I'd prefer a male character, but not the one they're suggesting in the article...I guess if they're desperate. That's just my opinion. And for sequels, I don't think they should only be limited to using the time in between episode 3 and 4. They could do other times as well, just not KotOR time, either within the prequel times or after the classic trilogy times would be good to me.

I Don't want it, I get so angry when the powers that be just dont listen. TFU should of been K3, it wasn't. TFU is NO KotOR, Luckily the TFU was just OK, so it didn't completely tarnish LA, but the game is far from compelling, the lack of customization, too short, the Gary Stu syndrome is through the roof, it's too big for it's boots. The Idea of over the top force powers has haunted me from day 1, I hope they don't think it's a good idea to continue this as a multi era/Character franchise like the "NJO unleashed", the "Old republic unleashed" etc. Just release the DLC so I can get my monies worth and close the book!

With this and the Clone wars powering the Lucas empire at the moment I'm beginning to think that George is surrounding himself with the wrong people

I don't know about the rest of you, but other than the shortness of the game, I think Force Unleashed fulfilled my expectations. I love it.

I think the fact that TFU was so short is clear proof, IMO, that TFU2 will be made. Especially since LA came up with the "force unleashed" idea.

Endorenna
10-07-2008, 04:29 PM
(SPOILERS)

If they make a TFU2, I want it to be about Maris Brood. Even though SK squashed her in their little saber bout, she'd be a cool character to be, I think. She could stay behind the scenes, never part of the Rebellion, just watching them and helping them from afar. All through the game, she could be struggling with her inner darkness, trying to turn away from the Dark Side, like she told SK she would. Hopefully the dark side ending would be a little happier. She wouldn't look good at all in skin-grafted armor! And, hopefully, the Light Side ending would be happier as well.

And beside that, I want to use her lightsabers. :xp:

Lord Foley
10-07-2008, 09:34 PM

That. I'm glad someone agrees. Plus, don't you think it's dumb that she was in the game for about three minutes total? She was totally useless to the plot. A follow up story centralized on her would make her presence in the game much more understandable.

SW01
10-07-2008, 10:03 PM
Yeah, I agree that Maris Brood would make sense for a sequel - ready made light/dark conflict, and a decent though not overdeveloped backstory.

Hope they build up a few more RPG elements next time round. :)

Yea, my thoughts exactly! Come on, she's supposed to be one of the six core characters, and she has far, far less less 'screen time' than any of the others! When I saw her run off, I thought "And there we have The Force Unleashed 2!"

SW01
10-09-2008, 08:01 PM
I wouldn't mind playing as Maris Brood in a sequel if her story was properly developed - explaining how she came to be with Shaak-Ti, for example. I know it was outlined in character bios, but I think it would be better explained in-game.

It seems to me that she is very likely to be the focus of some project in the future - given that she appears twice in cutscenes on two different levels, and has a foreboding commentary from Bail Organa on his fears about her path, and could easily be seen as light or dark side. And, more than anything else, she seems completely enigmatic - no mention of her outside TFU.

Now if they would only get rid of the dozy 'nightstick'-style lightsabres...

(Actually, that seems to be yet more evidence for her return - a different-for-the-sake-of-it sabre style...:xp:)

Well I personally don't want to play as Maris in TFU2. NOT because she's a girl, but because her character just didn't really interest me that much. But... it still would be nice to have her in the game, maybe even join your team or whatever. But I really think I wouldn't enjoy playing as her.

SW01
10-10-2008, 03:14 PM
I still think she would be a good leading character in that her story after TFU is wide open - allowing the developers substantial freedom to develop the character.

A totally new character - maybe even a different era - would of course be good as well, so long as it is well executed, but I think it's fairly obvious that the developers have pegged Maris for a return.

And I hate those lightsabres!

Darth Eclipse
10-10-2008, 06:40 PM
Yes, the lightsabers ARE cool. I like them.

Ctrl Alt Del, why would you have to play as a half-naked man? I understand not. Think before you post!

Endorenna

That's what different costumes are for, so we don't have to play Felucia in the Jungle Training Gear. I'm sure if Maris is the character in TFU2, they'll make a costume where she isn't half-naked.

Darth Eclipse
10-10-2008, 07:04 PM
Then I wouldn't really have a problem if I wouldn't ever have to play as her in her half-naked costume. It's not that I have something against girls, I just don't like skimpily dressed ones.

*Sigh* Well thats true... all the characters in TFU, besides Maris, you can't really use as a leading character in the secound game. But I bet LucasArts can come up with a complete new character thats more interesting than Maris.

Well, that's fine if you're willing to wait 5 years.

Let's have Bail Organa as the hero then! Or Drunk Kota!:xp:

PS - I accept no responibility if LA actually does this...

Still think Maris is the obvious choice - I don't see how they could justify more Jedi Padawans. It's supposed to be near the time when Luke is last of the Jedi, but now we have Kota and Maris running around...

C'MON! Does TFU2 HAVE to be in between Episode 3-4??? I'd love to see a TFU game with the main character being Luke or somebody in the times after the Battle of Endor. Maybe even Kyle Katarn, being the star of not only the Jedi Knight series, but now in an entry in the TFU series. How does that sound?

If they were to use another time period, hypothetically, I think old-Old Republic would work well - seeing we are repeatedly told in the likes of TSL that ancient Jedi and Sith were insanely powerful compared to those from the KotOR era forward.

Something like the apprentice of Marka Ragnos or Naga Sadow, or one of the Jedi - might even be a good game!

But, I'd rather have the thing within the next decade, so I'll settle for Maris Brood! :D

Well they could do Luke... maybe. They could show how he becomes the most powerful Jedi ever after Episode 6. Kyle Katarn though wouldn't work at all I would think. Because well Kyle Katarn didn't have these crazy force powers... unless... some how he gets them from the power of the Valley of the Jedi...

I would honestly like to see Darth Bane as the main player character, he is very strong in the force (and in real muscle). Plus, the books told a very interesting storyline for him, but since Drew just announced the 3rd book there isn't much chance of them adding anything plot-wise. :P

I'd just like to see a Force Unleashed game that took place before/after the Rise of the Empire/Clone Wars. They've milked it to freaking death. :(

I'd like to see many of the EU characters in any multiplayer mode - particularly from the later eras, like Roan Fel and the Imperial Knights, or Darth Krayt and Darth Talon.

I think a multiplayer, whether online or regular single console multiplayer, would be a welcome addition to the next-gen version. Given the backlash over the complete lack of one, I think the developers would be foolish to neglect to add one next time out.

Mara Jade might be a good candidate for a character in a sequel - though as said, not a main one. Mainly because she has a storyline already. I'd prefer a totally original one.

Endorenna
10-15-2008, 03:05 PM
Yea, that's the thing about Mara. If they were going to make a Yuzhaan Vong/Darth Caedus game, sure, but to get the full story, you'd have to keep switching from Luke to Mara to Leia to Jaina to Jacen to Anakin to...you get the idea. :)

Maris Brood's story isn't written yet, so I still think she's the best candidate for TFU 2.

Well, Mara Jade or Maris Brood weren't crazy force users...So I think Kyle Katarn could be a candidate or at least an unlockable skin. I think Luke would be good maybe for a story after ROTJ. Like TFU is Vader's "Dark Son"(Starkiller) and Luke is his son who is light. Idk, as long as it's NOT Maris, or Mara Jade. How would they be entertaining to play as anyways?....

Well with Maris we could see how her life was before and after.

For Mara Jade, the story would be like TFU, a dark side user that follows orders from a big baddie (palpatine) without leaving witnesses.

I think both are good candidates for a TFU2.:D

They probably won't get the same ground-breaking effect, but they can build on what they have by adding more features, more ambitious storylines, characters and powers, and make it longer now they know there is a market for it. Think of the difference between KotOR and TSL - both great games in their own right, but KotOR was the ground-breaker, the new thing. TSL took that base and built upon it, with slightly enhanced graphics more animations, items, etc, and would have had a greatly enhanced storyline had LA allowed Obsidian to finish it!

Hopefully, LucasArts will do the same this time round, use the original as a base and build upon it, but maybe finish it thi time around!:xp:

Hmm... I'd love them to achieve the story enhancements that came with TSL, but the time setting would surely be far more restrictive for TFU 2. There's very little space between the end of the first game and Episode IV, the key villains have already been used, and the lingering Jedi survivors have been slaughtered.

We'll see though. I'm on board for another one, although I'd prefer KOTOR 3 if I was forced to choose.

Yeah - I would say it'll be: 1) as discussed, focused on Maris Brood; and 2) set just after her encounter with Galen on Felucia, or just after being sent away by Shaak Ti - maybe that will even be the prologue. And, of course as you say, the villains are already set. Pity, imo (cause we know exactly who they are and how they act, and thus we know who we will fight at the end.)

I think it would be great to play as Palpatine in his early training, seeing he is supposed to be an incredibly powerful force user and highly skilled duelist. And, as far as I am aware, his early history is not written.

It would be nice to see a game ending which is canonically Dark Side as well!:xp:

:lol::lol::lol::lol::lol: A young Palpatine! Boy, what a gruesome sight!

Meh. It's just not the same. He looks like Kota (or Drunk Kota - to each his own:xp:), but he still walks, talks, and fights like Starkiller.

But, unless we are to force sight our way through the game, or have it set way back in the Clone Wars (please no), it seems very highly unlikely. Maris still seems to me the most logical, but not necessarily the most desirable, choice for a (returning) PC character.

I'd rather see a brand spank'n new character, than Maris. I could settle for her though.

Shem
10-31-2008, 10:44 PM
Maris Brood's story isn't written yet, so I still think she's the best candidate for TFU 2.I would hope not with Maris. I didn't like her at all and her fighting style with those guard shoto type short lightsabers. I don't think she would sell as a character to play as if LucasArts wants to make money.

Here is what I think would make good playable characters in TFU II:

Luke Skywalker - After ROTJ - Anything could be possible with this one just by having some dark force rise and he has to put an end to it and other possibilities.

Darth Maul - Pre-TPM - Have him track down and kill Sidious' enemies and kill Jedi who would be witnesses. You could do so much with that and even have a similar beginning like with Starkiller on how Sidious discovered him. He could be the next secret apprentice type character. It's too bad that it is established that Sidious killed his master (Darth Plagueis) in his sleep as you could have actually seen it work out where Sidious and Maul gang up to defeat Plagueis as was set to try happen with Starkiller and Vader teaming up to dethrone Sidious. The end of the story of the game would be just before the events of TPM.

Darth Bane - Show how he rose to be a powerful Sith Lord and how he survived the Sith purge and establish the "Rule of Two."

Darth Vader - Have it start when he is first fitted with the outfit and how he had to learn to adjust to it; meaning how he learned to get more powerful while having his limitations while doing missions to hunt down and destroy Jedi.

A Totally New Character in the Old Republic Era - Just make up a new character that we can grow to love easily during the events of the Old Republic sometime away from the KOTOR era so it can stand alone.

Oh, and about my Darth Maul idea. One of the features for Maul is to be able to have the option to turn on one blade or both blades with his lightsaber and have situations where one will work better than the other and have him build up skills to use both styles. And instead of calling it The Force Unleashed II, call it The lightsaber Unleashed. :D

I agree with you. A new character is muc more engaging than going along with an established, if even only partially, backstory. New characters also offer a far greater RPG element. With Maris, of course, a fighting skill, appearance, equipment, backstory and (basic) personality are all already established, so that element probably wouldn't be present.

As I said,

Maris still seems to me the most logical, but not necessarily the most desirable, choice.

Maybe the final fight would be against Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan.
As for the master ordeal, maybe Maul was plotting to overthrow his master.

If Lucasarts wants a quick turnaround with force Unleashed 2 then they can go with Maris Brood.

My feeling is that Lucasarts is gonna explore other stories and game concepts first before they to TFU 2.

An interesting idea will be dlc though as I can see maris brood also be the main character in DLC missions and then Lucasarts can possibly use the dlc to set up the main character in TFU 2.

If people want Maris though I think a better place for her would just be as a character in DLC missions, and then through the DLC one can introduce new characters for Force Unleashed 2.

As for Vader and Darth Maul I think Lucasarts would rather tell new stories with new characters instead of using older, more established characters.

TFU doesn't need a "Force Unleashed 2". The closest it should get is a spiritual sequel, that is, what the Episode III game was to Jedi Power Battles.

Galen's story has more or less been told and ended. He's dead, and they can't show him doing anything majorly important prior to the events of the first game without watering down said first game, so we don't need to see him again; neither a sequel nor a prequel with him as the main character would work. Galen's story turned out a lot better than it could have been; quit while you're ahead.

Maris Brood doesn't need to be heard from again either, since she was easily the weakest character in the game.

Juno Eclipse doesn't need to be seen again, unless it's her and her ship getting shot down and blown to subatomic particles by Maarek Stele (the player character of TIE Fighter), or a Star Destroyer, better yet.

Kota's fate needs to be addressed directly. This Jedi was a member of the Rebel Alliance, and he survived through the events of TFU. If this Jedi lived to hear of the Battle of Yavin, why did he never meet Luke Skywalker? His death needs to be concretely established as occurring before ANH, but this doesn't necessarily require him to be in a sequel to TFU.

If there's going to be another TFU-esque game, make it unrelated to the story of the first game. Make a Vader game, or better yet, a game where you play as Jerec. Set set it sometime in the Old Republic era (there's three wars that would make good storyline material in there), or during the Clone Wars, or even post-ROTJ, as long as it doesn't go near the era of the "Legacy" comics.

In short, a TFU 2 isn't needed. A game that resembles TFU in gameplay, perhaps.

Lord of Hunger
05-19-2009, 10:02 PM
IMO another TFU would be pointless, and LucasArts really needs to get the **** out of the Movie era setting. It's a ship with a sinking popularity, it's been explored to death, and no one is interested. KOTOR, TSL, TOR...all of this is the future of Star Wars. No one is interested in the EVIL EMPIRE and the GOOD REBELS fighting anymore, they want multidimensional storyline. KOTOR and TSL have been the first to do this, and although TOR has heavy dual factionalism there is still a degree of self-determinism and "greyness" not present in Clone Wars-on. The idea of letting the fans create their own saga is the best idea that LucasArts has had yet. Also, I am sick to god of False Sith (Brotherhood of the Sith, New Sith Empire, Brotherhood of Darkness, Order of the Sith Lords, Lumia's Sith, even the One Sith). It's time that the True Sith, the Dark Siders with really power, get their turn. I want to find out if Ludo Kreesh is actually the Sith Emperor, to see the True Sith Troopers grin the Republic into submission, to join the Sith Lords in their quest to assert dominance.

Come on LucasArts, you finally have a good idea...now hand it to us, please!

According to VGChartz, the game sold about 6.6 million copies across all released platforms, but it didn't really get the greatest of reviews. Anything to make more $$$ is all that matters, though.

If it's just gonna be the same thing with a different storyline and 2 new outfits, I won't bother with it.

It seems that TFU2 is going to happen in 2009. It seems that Galen Merek is still the main character, even though I don't completely understand how he survived. We know it doesn't follow the dark side ending, because that did an even bigger job of dumping on continuity (intentionally, understood, enjoyable) then the games existence period. My guess is that it follows the light side ending, even though we witness a dead Starkiller at the end of that. Now Vader faked Galen's death once in the first, it is possible that they could do it again, but I don't know. The trailer looks as though it's going to be the same exact thing as the first one, except we might get to see some Yoda.

I agree with the votes for Battlefront III. It would have so much potential on a next gen system. I think that Battlefront: Elite Squadron would go over really well on the 360 or PS3. I've yet to play RC or KOTOR, but what I've heard of KOTOR, the Sith in that game seem just as overpowered as Starkiller. I, personally, don't believe that beefing up somethings power is how you should go about making a good game. But it looks like we're getting a sequel anyway.

clearly you've never played the KOTOR series or the JK series.

Indeed.

TFU2 they should be putting their money towards a new JK with

LA needs to (re)start making games for the PC. The JK and Battlefront series blows TFU out of the water. I couldn't fully enjoy TFU because the port to PC was so crappy.

I fully agree. I can't play it because it is not optimized, it hasn't THE graphics so i don't understand why the didn't take a few moments to do it better.

About TFU2 i think there are a lot of possibilities, like some sith's make some of their magic and they bring him back to life, or he wasn't dead at all in the first part, and probably in the second part we will have to make something more focused on Galen's life, and may then he leves the galaxy and goes to find Revan's ship (?) for the 7th, 8th and 9th films (?).

Sorry if it doesn't understand, English is not my language :p

Reading some of these comments made me a true believer that there is a zero attention span in the fanboy universe. TFU 2. What in LA's history would get anyone to think there is anyway that it would not be about Galen? I read many good ideas for games I would play from u guys, but lets be honest, fanboys don't drive the gaming economy. LA will try to make a game that appeals to more than just hardcore fans, otherwise its going bankrupt. It has to be multi platform and since online multiplay rules the marketplace, there has to be a reason to play this "franchise" again. Getting to continue playing a hero that "died" is good for business cuz i know I wasn't too happy dying as a good guy. The all Sith based games suggested, never gonna happen. Most casual gamers like to play as good or at least have a choice, so that's out the window 4 sure.

Riddle me this; if we're fanboys, than why do we chastise most of LA's movements in the past 5 years?

And most of us don't like TFU2 because most of us didn't like the first TFU.

You can't make a judgment like that with such certainty. I think the majority of the people who didn't like the first one were the people who had this inflated perception of it in their heads before it came out and expected too much from it. Naturally, they would have been disappointed by the story and characters. Others of us weren't expecting some spectacularly epic adventure and just expected a really fun game, which is exactly what we got.

This isn't entirely the fans' faults, really. After all, LucasArts did play it up quite a bit, advertising it as the next colossal installment in the Star Wars Saga, acting like it was the game that surpassed all other games in importance and was right up there with the movies themselves. But then again, that's how marketing works.

In summary, I think both the fanboys and the haters are a little ridiculous. This game was fun to play, has great replay value in my opinion (mainly in the way of Force powers and combat mechanics carrying over into new games), and is a true classic. Maintain realistic expectations and I think you'll agree.

It was? I never heard that. Well, I still consider it a spin-off rather than a proper sequel because 1. it has no number in its title, 2. Kyle Katarn is not the star, 3. the main character, Jaden Korr, is awful and I can't believe he's getting his own novel, and 4. the story was half-assed and crap. I still like it though, mainly because of the gameplay, but I refuse to accept it as a true follow-up to Jedi Outcast. It's just like Mysteries of the Sith, really, except that it is a proper stand-alone game rather than an expansion.

So yeah, death to Jaden! Give me a good follow-up to Jedi Outcast where Kyle is the star!



Oh, and um, yeah, how about that TFU2, huh?

I agree with you on all of those points. It's a spin off for me as well more than it is JK3 but that's what it was called before they titled it "Academy". Besides I wouldn't care about if it's 3 or 4. I just want it to happen.

But... here we go... FU2:raise:

Sorry but no,people have been feeding me this bs that "the game is actually (very)good you just expected too much of it" for ages now.

First of all i'm suppoused to expect great,innovative,enthralling from the games i buy
TFU however was flat and flawed,the combat was as deep as a spoon the and the boss fights were either meh or f... annoying

that does not spell good in my book

I thought the boss fights were rather fun, but I agree the gameplay had little depth and got repetitive very quickly. Part of the reason I didn't enjoy the gameplay was that for most of the game you weren't fighting interesting or challenging opponents (no I'm not playing on Sith Master), beating up on stormtroopers and rebel troopers for 6 hours gets stale.

I'm hoping in TF2 they add some cool enemies that can be considered mini bosses (and are encountered quite frequently), perhaps jedi and dark jedi, skilled bounty hunters, and some more interesting vehicles/creatures. Assassin's creed 1 sucked major balls (to me), yet AC2 felt leaps and bounds better, here's to hoping LA can mimic Ubisoft in that respect.

I rather enjoyed the boss fights also. They were a few of the more fun parts to the game. With that said however, there wasn't much difficulty or skill require to beat them, excluding the emperor. I thought he was the most difficult part of the game.

not to mention,it was button mashing,finding a combo that makes them tick,do it over and over again...

i'm fine with waves of stormies,i mean that's to be expected,i'm not fine with them standing there for the slaughter,come on,they fire a single slow moving shot once in five seconds... it's like they give up when they see starkiller heading there way

The game play was very repetitive, the bosses were mediocre (with exception to the PSP release) and the story was the same tale of redemption I've been hearing since 3rd grade. And let's not forget that the shear existence of Galen is a total bastardization of the rule of two. I would think that Palpy would have done something himself as soon as he saw this happening, weather it be killing the conflicted Galen or the one who broke the rule (Vader).

Zerimar Nyliram
01-02-2010, 05:27 PM
Grrrr! God, I am so sick of people saying this! Galen is not a Sith! He's a freaking Dark Jedi! :mad: There have been tons of them throughout the Expanded Universe! If he were a Sith, he'd be Darth Something-or-other.

Vader and Palpatine have had many Dark Jedi operatives. In fact, Galen isn't even the one that comes closest to breaking the Rule of Two. Vader's later apprentice, Lumiya was a self-proclaimed "Dark Lady of the Sith," though she'd never actually been officially inducted into the Sith Order. And I'll tell you what actually does break the Rule of Two: the recently revealed "lost tribe of the Sith." But that's another discussion.

To summarize: Galen is not in any way, shape or form, a Sith (except in the non-canon bonus missions to Tatooine and Hoth, where he is Vader's replacement, Darth Starkiller), and does not damage the Rule of Two whatsoever. In fact, he fits into it perfectly: the apprentice chooses someone to help him overthrow his master, and in turn becomes the new Sith apprentice once the former apprentice is now the master. We see Vader making this very proposal to Luke in The Empire Strikes Back.

Not to mention how closely George Lucas himself oversaw The Force Unleashed when it was in development. He definitely would not have okayed anything that broke any fundamental Star Wars rules like that.




[Edit] Sorry for being so snappy, I just get very annoyed at hearing the same amateur arguments over and over again.

first off- when I first read about TFU I was under the impression it was going to be more like KOTOR except non-turn based fighting. KOTOR I & II storyline was awes and the new game engines sounded rad. So I was pumped, TFU was cool but I was disappointed with its linearity, ya you can choose light or dark but no real difference is in the story line, and it lacked the customization of KOTOR. I'm not big on turn based fighting, but enjoy the story of RPG's. I recently discovered Mass Effect it does just that, RPG with non-turn based fighting and it rox. If Lucas really wants a good game give us the engines of TFU and the story of a KOTOR game. So why not get back with bioware (they made KOTOR and ME games) and make it! Also not to talk about ME(mass effect) again but, the way the incorporate story lines between the games, (i.e. kill someone in the first, they're still dead in the sequel), seems (ME2 not out until 26th) like it will be awes and add tons of replay, especially if you have both games (3rd one on the way also). So a sequel to this could have the dude from TFU going into deep space to find the true sith lords and go from there, it’s a blank slate, and who doesn’t want some info on what happened to the true sith, it would rock.

The lost tribe of the Sith don't break the rule of two, the Rule of two was Darth Bane's Order, an offshoot of the Brotherhood of darkness, itself an offshoot of an offshoot... the Lost tribe of the Sith are direct descendent's of Naga Sadow's Sith, the True Sith Empire... but as you say, thats another discussion :)

Combine the depth of saber style and the danger of JO and JA with the actual choice and detail of KoTOR and the Dynamic and extraordinary interpretation of force powers in FU. What you have is a non turn based Star Wars game with extraordinary powers, realism of death by saber mixed matched battles do to saber styles and type of saber, true detail and differance...Maybe AI factionism like mandalorian, empire/sith, jedi/republic coupled with light and darkside force choices for real individual multiple outcome game play. And like in KoTOR don't be scared to expose players to in depth lore and choices lke Jedi enclave and Korriban trials etc etc. Perfect game .....replay FOREVER!!!

TFU 2 Cant wait hopefully longer than the 1st one and hopefully have jedi robes instead of stupid outfits.
Why couldn't they made Galen have robes like Maul or Obi Wan it's got me baffled got Sith Edition of TFU and still no robes for Galen closest thing is his spirit form.

Anyone else think that Lucas Prequel's (Ep 1,2,3) were CRAP only good things about em were Maul and the sabre fight between Obi and Anakin in Revenge of the Sith.
Maul should of lived until Revenge of the Sith and then replaced by Vader/Anakin and wtf was with the droids ROGER ROGER?
Should of been assassin droids like HK from KOTOR and Count Dooku pfffft... does he change into a bat and despise garlic and dont get me f**ken started about General Greivous lame.
Casting was good, effects were great, story was piss poor and had none of the qualities of the original trilogy.
Maul was one of the coolest villains ever but gets pawned by a padawan Obi Wan when he should of got pawned by Anakin in Revenge of the Sith.

There should of been terrorism acts on the Jedi.

Bombs, Ambushes and having Maul and Jango finishing them off, Palpatine should of started his destruction of the Jedi order through out the prequels as they were the one thing standing in his way.
Attack of the Clones has got to be the worst of all 3 prequels only relevant thing was Anakin slaughtering Sandpeople to begin is descent to the Darkside.
The whole Geonosis was just f**ken lame surely they could of come up with something better than that s**t.
Lucas should of hired some writers to help him with a better story he should of watched the original trilogy and looked at what made them great and applied it to the prequels.

The guys who wrote the Force Unleashed story were great and it was an awesome game it got me interested in Starwars again and I'm looking forward to the sequel.
I'm interested to see how Galen is still alive and kicking But I don't like Galen's outfit PLEASE GIVE HIM ROBES like Obiwan or Maul.
Would be cool to dual wield, single wield or double sabre and to have different stances and sabre forms quick and flurry or regular swings and please make the sabre cut torsos, arms, heads off no need for gore but it is a lightsabre correct?
Pretty happy with the force powers from TFU remove dash and have something a bit more permanent to cover area's quicker force speed until your force runs out or something.

I know this is a piddling, aesthetic, and overall unimportant thing to complain about, but until more material on the game is released there's almost nothing concrete to talk about: I really don't like the apprentice's new look. At the end of the first game he held his lightsaber back-handed and he had an outfit that made him look like the dude from Assassin's Creed became a Jedi. Now his outfit just looks kind of bland in comparison and his old lightsaber style is gone.
