New Star Wars games are always met with equal parts fond anticipation and trepidation. On one hand, each new Star Wars game gives players the opportunity to delve into a fresh storyline set a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away. On the other hand, it is completely up to the developer to make good use of this licence and create a game that doesn't simply retread Hoth and Endor for the umpteenth time.
To this end, IGN was recently invited to visit George Lucas' game studio, LucasArts, to view its progress on the latest Star Wars game - Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. Announced back at E3 2006 and further elaborated on during Activison's 'Activate' event in Sydney shortly thereafter, The Force Unleashed is part of LucasArts' brave new foray into several new technologies, and we've had our fingers crossed since our first glimpses of the game that it will represent a bold new vision for the Star Wars license.
Now it's time to blow the lid off this puppy, as we dive straight into the details, courtesy of Hayden Blackman, Project Lead on Unleashed. His enthusiasm for the Star Wars series has placed him at the top of a tower of LucasArts talent that actively sought out George Lucas' blessing to create the next fully-fledged chapter in the series.
