From the original Star Wars on the NES, to the GameCube's excellent Rogue Squadron games (via the Super Star Wars series on the SNES), the movies have been well-represented on various the Nintendo systems over the years. However, the recent LEGO titles aside, there hasn't been a decent 'serious' Star Wars game for a number of years. Does The Force Unleashed change this? It does, actually, but only to a certain extent.
The game is set between Episode III and Episode IV in the movie saga and acts as a bridge of sorts between the old and new trilogy. You play as Starkiller, a secret apprentice to Darth Vader, and the majority of the game's first half sees you being sent off to various different planets and killing the last of the remaining Jedi."
