I'm not a huge fan of the animated series THE CLONE WARS, but I still feel it deserves a spot as a good Star Wars related product that the fandom appreciates.

Sorry, force unleashed was horrible. As a game and as a story.


Force Unleashed? What was that story?

Sovereign Court

That crappy game whose only gimmick was that metal behaved like metal, wood like wood and you brought down a star destroyer with the force.

As long as there was no elderly Gamorrean who had a Sy Snootles complex... yeah, I'd watch it.

And instead of using the Thrawn trilogy, and digitally de-ageing the stars, he chose to disregard 30+ years of extended universe. Nice job. JJ. You putz.

This is actually the BEST DECISION EVA! Most of the Extended Universe is crap.


So does that mean that we have two Star Wars Universes...

The Lucasverse...which encompasses all that was SW when Lucas owned it...

And now the Disneyverse, that which has been recreated when Disney got it?

Shadow Lodge

The Expanded Universe has been officially retconned by Lucas as an "alternate timeline" or some such. Basically a whole "what might have been"/"it never happened".


I'm pretty sure infinites never happened.

size is nothing, hama.

Heh. Just goes to show what the standards for good Star Wars products have to be, then. That said, I liked it. I felt it did well and filled in a number of blanks, even managing to treat the original trilogy with respect.

I thought the story had some nice elements to it. Didn't like it much as a game though, particularly the cinematic button mash endings. I don't like that in any games where they show up (which is too often).

So the game went too far with force powers? The movies made it clear that no one is strong enough to move a large star ship; now small or even possibly medium ones sure... but if they could toss large ones around then battles would have been very different.

Here is a video of Starkiller taking down a star destroyer.

Now that I think about it, story was ok. It was just tainted with horrible gameplay.

My bad.


The gameplay was bad. An ugly attempt to cash in on God of war.

The Exchange

I liked the story of Force Unleashed because I think it was a subtle and interesting way of presenting an alternate storyline. The idea of the rebel alliance being assembled by Vader is certainly interesting, and I like many of the Jedi in the game - the stories of what became of them after order 66.

Where the game fell flet (in the story aspect) is execution. certainly in the hand of better scriptwriters these concepts could have been honed into a very entertaining Star Wars tale.

I kind of want a Telltale Star Wars game, come to think of it.

Thrawn looks out window of superstar destroyer at debris of second deathstar: you blew it up! Damn you dirty rebel scum...

Wonder how many "Hidden Mickeys" there will be in the various scenes.

This is how much of an Imperial I remain to this day.

A recurring nightmare I have had since I was 12 still creeps up on me about once a year.

And its that of His Imperial Majesty's ship the Super Star Destroyer Executor being pulled into the Death Star II's gravity well.

That was a tragedy of paramount magnitude.

Technically, no.

Han shot. Period. Then Greedo died, and Han walked out, tossing some money to the bartender and saying "Sorry about the mess."

Push ups with my tongue, I can do.

That, about a minute, think about.

Smile, you will.

You mean the only actual Star Wars movies?

Shadow Lodge

I was hopeful that Disney purchasing Star Wars would lead to a BluRay release of the original and unbastardized versions of the original trilogy. So far I remain disappointed.

It's in the Disney vault. We ain't seeing it for a while, if ever.

If they rerelease the original versions, I would expect it would be part of the lead up to the new movies.

Dark Archive

Meanwhile this happened.

10 Hours of Princess Leia Walking in The Empire City.

Warner Bros. and Fox realize the futility in going up against The Empire of Disney.

J.J. Abrams confirms 88 second Star Wars: A New Dawn trailer will be released this Friday.

Dark Archive

Imperial Advisor Robert A. Iger, Disney President, and member of The Emperor's Inner Council, Says The Force Awakens Teaser will be Online at 10:15 am EST (7:15 PST, 15:15 GMT, 16:15 CET)

That's in two hours.

It is a good time to be alive if you are a Loyal Imperial citizen.

Dark Archive

Meanwhile while we wait, Dark Lord meet Dark Knight.

Scarab Sages

The odds of C-3P0 being correct in that prediction are approximately 783 million... to 1.

The Exchange

So, trailer was pretty cool. The visuals are great, the voice-over is dumb in a bad way, the new lightsaber design is dumb in a good way.

Simple.

Do you know how people say that "this movie" or "that movie" is the Star Wars of this generation.

Well how about we have a Star Wars the IS The Star Wars of this generation. For any generation while we are at it.

I want the silver screen to have all the elements that made my 7 year old self eyes go wide and mouth drop. I want Star Wars VII to bring back my sheer love and utter awe of Star Wars. I want the orchestra to play long and the audience to cheer wild. I want my villains properly British and my scoundrels with a heart of gold always shoot first. I want to go back and be transported to a long time ago, in the galaxy far, far away, and meet my 7 year old self again and we have the time of our lives. 

I just want my childhood back for a couple of hours.

Now you kids get off my lawn!

And just like that, I am 7 years old again.


apparently, I work for baronaremhasevaum in the future.

Sovereign Court

So, no showing of any of the old cast. Falcon looks nice. Lightsaber looks.....interesting. Nothing impressive really.

I understand the importance of not getting one's hopes up especially in light of the last trilogy, but YEESH..tough crowd.

Well, the lower your expectations, the more likely they will be exceeded. The higher they are, the more likely you are to be disappointed. I figure this is why Attack of the Clones appeared to be so good at first viewing despite its horrible shortcomings (I think it is the worst in the series by far). Phantom Menace had calibrated expectations to be very low.

The Exchange

I hate the lightsabre and the droid

Why did the stormtrooper wake in the desert? Because the others thought he was too short to be a stormtrooper.


New X-wings are pretty awesome. The fanfare is a great moment as well.

Sovereign Court

Waiting for the actual trailer before I start getting psyched.

But honestly, after Jar Jar Binks...my expectations are on a very low bracket.

Yep exactly

I was super hyped on the prequels...and well they were disappointing. So I am not trying to get my hopes up about the new movies.

Add in that I think J.J. is horribly overrated, and that Disney will apparently be cranking out Star Wars movies at a steady pace until the heat death of the universe, just makes me very guarded in my enthusiasm for the new stories.

Yeah, and 3P0 seems to have picked up some usual programing after that last memory wipe at Anchorhead.

The ball droid does look REALLY dumb.
