The design may not be original, but technically in the altered universe, it would be Leia's helmet that was non-original.

The bounty hunter disguise that Leia has in Episode 6 is not the only outfit that the Stalker armor shares characteristics with. Looking more closely, one can see similarities to Jango/Boba Fett's armor (the T-visor), General Grievous (claw-like hands and number of lightsabers kept as trophies), Darth Vader's armor (the overall concept, plus the freaky breathing sounds that he makes), and even Count Dooku (his lightsaber has several spiked emitter guards that resemble the single guard on the Count's weapon). Given TFU was supposed to mirror and remind one of the Star Wars movies, it shouldn't come as a surprise to see that the Sith Stalker armor's design was inspired by a number of other elements of the canon. The game contains many other references to other Star Wars material (movies and EU) as well.

Maybe it's an Ubese design?

Maybe Leia is really the secret apprentice?


Yes

Why does it need to be completely original? It looks really cool, and in my opinion, it looks way better than Vader's suit.

I knew it reminded me of something.

It looks badass, original or not.

Helpful! 
If anything, Starkiller's helmet only shares the mouth area of Boushh's helmet.

But, as has been stated, Starkiller's entire outfit has probably been inspired by many other sources. The Mandalorian (True Mandalorian/Death Watch/Clone Troopers kind) T-Visor, parts of Vader's armor (mainly a part of the helmet and the body), the Grevious thing, etc.

But really, when you've gone through 10+ years with some good concepts, I doubt you are going to create something that is totally original.

It isn't a complete knock-off..I mean there are differences (mandalorian like design) and there is a thing called "piggy backing" and since this is Lucasarts I think we all should expect some piggy backing in the Star wars EU.

Look up the character of Markus Corvinus in the movie Underworld: Evolution. Does that ring a bell? He's the Sith Stalker without armor or tattoos.
