LucasArts producer Cameron Suey has claimed that over-excitement with the licence and lack of ambition are to blame for previous lacklustre internal Star Wars titles - but insists the studio has delivered with The Force Unleashed.
Speaking to Eurogamer TV at GC 2008, ahead of the game's release later this month, Suey explained that, because Star Wars is "such a great licence", it's "really easy to get excited about that and not set the bar high enough." That would explain the Episode III: Revenge of the Sith game, then. And Bounty Hunter. And Obi-Wan.
However, Suey reckons that with PS3 and 360 adventure The Force Unleashed, LucasArts has finally "really fulfilled the high bar we set for ourselves."
