GI.net: "I have a confession to make: I am not a Star Wars fan. Not on any level. This is not to say that I did not enjoy the original trilogy when I was growing up. To deny the power of Star Wars is like saying that The Beatles were just a band and that Bob Dylan was a stoner with a guitar. To deny Star Wars influence is missing out on all of the ways it has influenced recovering addicts' perception of God, spirituality, television, movies, novels and even video games (if you missed the Star Wars vibe in Final Fantasy XII, then you are truly missing out). So imagine my surprise when I was sent a copy of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed for my PlayStation 2. Is it any good, or is it as bad as most critics say? It is a little bit of both but mostly the former. Read on to learn more.
As many people know, the Star Wars movies always revolve around the proverbial underdogs fighting for freedom. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is a little different, but the overall plot premise is the same. You control Darth Vader's secret apprentice - so secret in fact that the Emperor himself is not even aware of his existence. The first few missions have good old Vader sending you out to assassinate rogue Jedi. From there, the plot slowly starts to become more complex. And to reveal any more information would ruin it (and would probably have Star Wars geeks hunting me down for spoiling it)."
