Whether it’s the limits of Microsoft’s device or poor implementation, for the most part, Kinect Star Wars’ controls are extremely lethargic and restrictive. Throw some occasional inaccuracies into the mix, and you have an experience that is best described as frustrating. Ironically, the Galactic Dance Off mode ends up being the only real highlight, providing a few chuckles thanks to the track list and appearances of well-known characters from the Star Wars universe.
Whatever way you look at it, Kinect Star Wars is a massive disappointment. Microsoft’s device and the Star Wars universe should’ve been a match made in heaven, yet it ends up being a Death Star-sized missed opportunity.
