Ready to give the Star Wars franchise another try?

Flat out, this game looks awesome. But I don't know if I want to put too much trust into this game. I mean the past Star Wars games have been lets face it bad. They just did not live up to expectations. But do you think the Force Unleashed will change all that? What excites you most about this game?

Past Star Wars games have been bad? What have you been smoking?  Knights of the Old Republic I + II, Jed Outcast, Republic Commando, Battlefront, Empire at War, Galaxies (At release) and Yoda's stories. I'm just kidding about the last one though. I have faith that this'll be a great game, I admit I am disappointed that they have taken the multiplayer out of the next-gen versions when they said earlier in development that they were definitely putting it in, but I guess this has given them more time to make single player as good as they can.

Plus, Euphoria and DMM!

I wanna find a game where they get the light-saber dueling right. Until then I won't have any interest in a Star Wars game.

Oh yeah. I forgot about those games. Which is odd since KOTOR is one of my favorite games of all-time. My mistake

I was looking forward to Force Unleashed, but all the stuff from E3 has given me a bad impression - so I'm not too hopeful to it.
The next KOTOR game on the other hand - will be win.

I'm not sure.  This game looks rad, but it seems to be just another action game.  I'm waiting to see just how much those force powers differentiate it from the pack.

I so want this game to be good.  It looks very pretty, but I hope they get a good story line to go with all the cool physics effects.  Also, I hope there's at least some emphasis on using the lightsaber, and that it's not just an uber force fest.

I think this game will look pretty, play very solid, and give you that great Star Wars experience we've all been waiting for in a video game. I just hope I don't end up eating my words...

The combat looks fun, but I'm going to wait on reviews before I try it out. I wonder who will be reviewing it on Giant Bomb? Brad?

I hope this isn't just "look how good our physics engine is" type of gameand that they actually use it to good effect. The story better be good as well.

I have high hopes for this SW game... though I'd rather want Bioware to announce KoTOR 3 already.

Looks good to me, i liked the episode 3 game for ps2 too,  i find playign with the force fun in itself so i guss ima love this one,  it doesent looks like more then a hack/slash game tho.   ..hope the story is as good as they say x]

The one thing that has me optimistic actually came from Brad, where he mentioned that this game actually feels like the star wars of old.  You know, the dirty used up Star Wars universe.  I've kind of got a wait and see attitude as far as expectations go but I've got a feeling that I'll be picking it up on day 1 to find out if this one lives up to the impossible hype.  It's hard not to get excited about a game that let's you go in a destroy everything.  Star Wars or otherwise.

I don't care about the other star wars games, all I know is this game is going to pwn! and I'm so getting it!

I'll probably rent it.

I can never look at Star Wars the same again since the prequels.

Damn you Lucas! DAMN YOU!!!!!!!!!!!

I think I'll just be renting this game. It looks ok, but it's not another Jedi Knight game or a Kotor.

This looks fairly hot.  And hey, it's got Darth Vader after he got over that wench Padme.  The whole, "NooooOOoOooo" line from Episode 3 pretty much sums up how I felt about the entire prequel business, and an emo Darth Vader a Sith Lord does not make.

Lucasarts is probably going to poose out though and end up making it so that you end up being a good guy.  Stupid good guys.  *fires lightning bolts from hands at cat*

They did already, but its an MMORPG on the PC only.
