Despite Everything, The Force Unleashed’s Story Might Not Be Terrible

Spoilers ahoy. When I saw there was a video explaining more of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed’s story, set in-between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, I was so totally ready to make fun of whatever jibberish they spewed out. But then I saw Darth Vader killing wookies, the apprentice (still named Starkiller?swoon!) killing an TIE Fighter assembly plant of good guys and bad guys to make sure he stays Darth Vader’s secret apprentice, and even a scene of a teen Leia, Jimmy Smits as Bail Organa, and a young Mon Montha lamenting the Empire, and you know what? They totally fucking got me. This game looks awesome, and its story does too. I can’t think of anything bad to say, and I can’t start flinging stormtroopers into TIE Fighters quickly enough.
