Default Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II Fact Sheet

LucasArts sent over their Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II key art that will adorn posters, the game's box, and so on and so forth:

Platforms: PC, RROD_Box, Playstation 3, Wii, Nintendo DS
Genre: Action
Publisher: LucasArts
Developer: LucasArts, Red Fly (Wii), Aspyr (Windows PC)
Release Date: October 26, 2010
Description:

The Star Wars Saga continues with Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, the highly anticipated sequel to the fastest-selling Star Wars game ever created, which has sold more than seven million copies worldwide. In Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, the world was introduced to Darth Vader’s now fugitive apprentice, Starkiller—the unlikely hero who would ignite the flames of rebellion in a galaxy so desperately in need of a champion.

In the sequel, Starkiller returns with over-the-top Force powers and embarks on a journey to discover his own identity and to reunite with his one true love, Juno Eclipse. In Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, Starkiller is once again the pawn of Darth Vader—but instead of training his protégée as a ruthless assassin, the dark lord is attempting to clone his former apprentice in an attempt to create the Ultimate Sith warrior. The chase is on – Starkiller is in pursuit of Juno and Darth Vader is hunting for Starkiller.

With all-new devastating Force powers and the ability to dual-wield lightsabers, Starkiller cuts a swath through deadly new enemies across exciting worlds from the Star Wars films - all in his desperate search for answers to his past.

Was the story in the first one really "that good?"

Yep, what he said.

I had issues with the ending of the game but outside of that, it was probably the best of the light-saber based games in the SW universe.

This game can suck my balls! The first one was pretty meh, a few terrible levels, with boring and annoying enemies. Seriously, how many force and light saber resistant creatures are out there? PC port was ok, but still couldn't help the rough unpolished feel the game always had.

It's better than not getting it at all. Force Unleashed port wasn't exactly smooth, but at least they released some patches, unlike other companies with much deeper pockets, that just don't care if the game doesn't sell enough.

For all the bitching about the Force Unleashed port, it was still the best version of the game.

This

instead of more harder better powers and sabers, keep them simple and make the enemies mortal

You shouldn't need 10 button epic combo attacks to kill one guy in a plastic suit with a lightsaber
