So I asked this in another thread, but I kind of was derailing that thread to ask it (my bad you guys). I'll elaborate more as well.
The big reveal for this game was that it's a "mature" take on Star Wars. That was the focus of this reveal. They showed a little of their lighting and how they are motion-capping actors (which should be standard these days it seems if you want a half way decent game I guess). But the biggest thing they focused on was mentioning how "mature" this new game will be.
For me them saying it's a "mature" take on star wars bothers me. What does that even mean? Was the force unleashed not a mature take on it? What about the Jedi Knight series? What does being mature entail if those don't count? Nudity and Gore? That's a weird thing for them to focus on. I don't mean to imply Star Wars games have been particularly crazy violent (with gore and blood and whatnot), but that doesn't mean they weren't mature before.
Some would say Force Unleashed doesn't count, as it's popcorn theater- the focus was teens and being extreme. I don't entirely agree with that, but I can see how that could be seen. My take on The Force Unleashed was it's more like God of War but Star Wars. I'm not saying mashing these together is bad, but it meant the focus was the action and the story just propelled you forward. Your central character was just an angry force (excuse the pun) taking down titans- only in this context they happened to be Jedi.
Is better writing what being "mature" means for star wars though? I would argue Jedi Knight Dark Forces 2 already kind of did this. Granted it was in a time when story was harder to focus on due to limitations of hardware, but they used FMV cut scenes to tell the story and at the time it was done effectively, I thought. It centered on Kyle Katarn and how he dealt with the loss of his father as the driving force for his journey to becoming a Jedi and your actions in the game determined how he would deal with that (either becoming dark side or light side).
So, ya. It makes me wonder what being "mature" means exactly for a new star wars game. To me the game being mature isn't particularly new and "mature" in video games can come with several different definitions.
