With 2007's Tokyo Game Show just around the corner, developer LucasArts potentially made every male nerd's wet dream come true with the announcement that Star Wars: The Force Unleashed will be coming to the Wii (as well as Xbox 360 and the PS3 in Spring 2008). Finally the wand we've been waving at our TV screens like donuts for a year will finally fulfil its true destiny and become a lightsaber.
Most Wii owners will know first hand that there is, at best, a small delay between your actions with the wand and the action on screen. Most will admit that launch game Red Steel, which gave the player the opportunity to use a samurai sword, didn't set the world alight. Other games, like Harry Potter, which sees you waving the wand like a... err, wand, worked, but your didn't see Harry cast a spell until you triggered it with an appropriate motion. The less said about the latest Tiger Woods on the Wii the better.
