Star Wars games used to be great. Think the original arcade game in the '80s. Or the "Super" SNES games and the likes of Tie Fighter and Dark Forces in the 90's. But the last ten years or so haven't been kind to fans of the Force. Remember gaming atrocities like - shudder - Masters of Teras Kasi, Obi-Wan and the official prequel games. If you missed them you're lucky. If you're curious then feel free to splash out a quid or two for each on ebay. Of course there has been the occasional good 'un but interestingly these games - Knights of the Old Republic, Battlefront and possibly the early days of Galaxies if you're feeling generous - were all developed externally. So the pressure is on for next Star Wars game - The Force Unleashed. Released on Sept 19th the game is being developed in-house and has the added expectation of being marketed as the "next film". Luckily then what I've seen and played so far looks like it could banish those Super Bombad era memories for good. I recently spoke to LucasArts Project Lead Hayden Blackman about Force Unleashed, George Lucas and the stresses of creating a new Star Wars game."
