HookedGamers writes: "The original Star Wars: The Force Unleashed had a nice, compact story. Starkiller, after being raised by Darth Vader to be his apprentice, eventually realizes the error of his ways and plays a pivotal role in the creation of the Rebel Alliance. He sacrificed his own life to ensure their escape from the clutches of the Empire. Given its tremendous success, the idea of a sequel was sure to pop up at some point. While the sequel does manage to correct some wrongs from the previous game, new issues arise and the question of why this story was needed in the first place is inevitably raised."
