^Whoops, you posted while I was editing my last post.

So, the five Historic missions are (I don't think these are the actual names of the levels, but I gave it a shot, and the missions themselves are correct):

1. Duel in the Clouds- Cloud City, Bespin. Defeat Luke Skywalker as Darth Vader.

2. Escape the Execution- Great Pit of Carkoon, on Jabba's Sail Barge and the surrounding anti-grav boats. As Luke Skywalker, avoid falling into the Sarlacc, rescue your friends, and escape Jabba's Sail barge.

3. Arena in the Hive- Geonosian Execution Arena, Geonosis. As Mace Windu, free Alaaya Secura, destroy the battle droids, and kill Jango Fett.

4. A Hero's Last Duel- On board the Invisible Hand, above Coruscant. As Anakin Skywalker, make your way to the top of the Invisible Hand's spire, defeat Dooku, and free Chancellor Palpatine. This is Anakin's last duel as a hero, and his fall to the Dark Side will accelerate dramatically from this point.

5. Inferno- Lava Milling Station/CIS Headquaters, Mustafar. As Obi-Wan, wipe out the remaining droids and defeat Darth Vader.

Man, I love this list. Hey! Maybe, the people making the game are taking a more movie-like direction and the duel on Mustafar alternates with the duel between Yoda and Palpatine on Coruscant! One mission, two duels, play as Obi-Wan, play as Yoda, and defeat your enemies!

Fat chance of that, but... it... could happen...

Here's another video on the Force Unleashed. I think we've all heard by now that we can play as Darth Vader in the first level, and Force Lightning (being unusable by Vader in the cannon Star Wars Timeline due to the risk of it shorting out his mechanical parts and life-support suit) has been replaced by his iconic Force Choke, so we'll be able to make Wookies know how it feels to be on the recieving end of a shortage of air, rather than the other way around. This video doesn't reveal too much new information other than a hint at the Secret Apprentice's code name, which starts with the letter S. (Theorized to be Starkiller, the name for Darth Vader in the original script of Star Wars)

http://www.gametrailers.com/player/32828.html

And here's another one about the Wii version.

http://www.gametrailers.com/player/32802.html

Go ahead and look around a little more at the other videos. I must say, the Wii version's graphics look to have improved big time since the last video. That keeps me optomistic for the PSP version. Of course graphics aren't everything, but every game needs visual flare. Man, I hope I can get a Wii sometime soon. I'll definatley be getting both the Wii and PSP versions if I can.

Wookiepedia confirms the codename of the Secret Apprentice to be Starkiller, derived from Skywalker's original last name in the original Star Wars script. However, ths source for this material has yet to be investigated. I'll be sending an "excavation team" to the site to find a link and confirm. Who'll go with me?:

Hey, yeah, I heard about that too. Unfortunatley, I have no clue what it's coming out for.

So this is the first time we'll actually get to play as Darth Vader in an actual storyline, cannonized event. I'm looking forward to it! If they make a sequel and for some reason Starkiller is unable to return for it, I hope they allow us to take the entire game through as Darth Vader. That would be freakin' sweet!

EDIT: Looks like we just might get that chance. Look at the wookiepedia page (link posted in an earlier post) if you want to see why.

Okay, another update. Here's a new video from Gametrailers on The Force Unleashed. It has some spoilers to it, but nothing we really didn't know before. Meaning it shows us parts of cinematics we haven't ever seen, but we knew the things in them were bound to happen.

Did we already know that the Wii version had a two player dual mode? Cause I read that in Nintendo power.

I thought it was common knowledge. They've even shown Mara Jade Skywalker to be one of the playable characters in duel mode, and she's a fan favorite of those who go reading and playing into the Expanded Universe of Star Wars, being Luke's wife and all. She's one of my favorites.

Here's a trailer for a game called "Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Lightsaber Duels" on the Wii. It's also coming out on the DS (called Jedi Alliances), but not for anything else. Where as The Force Unleashed is mostly a Force game, Lightsaber Duels is, as it suggests, mostly a Lightsaber game.

I think I'll get The Force Unleashed for my PSP and, when I get a Wii (hopefully for my birthday), I'll get this game for it.

An awesome Force game with historic missions and Order 66, and an awesome lightsaber game that lets you create your own battles through the side game.

Freakin sweet.I do have a Wii, and its awesome. This game looks cool, but I hope they don't screw up in Real Life controls, like Twilight princess and GU both tried to do.

Well, it will have the basic directions like up, down, left, right, and forward (like The Force Unleashed's Wii game). But I think everything else is prety much just button combos and little a wave of the Wii wand.

Surprised Shocked WOOOOOOOOOWWWW!!!! Look at this!!!! LOOK AT THIS!!!! Shocked Surprised

Here is a review of the PSP version of the game. I CAN'T WAIT!!! Look at the vids! It's a MASSIVE improvment over what we saw in the vid of The Force Unleashed from Renegade Squadron we saw a couple months earlier. Read the review, and watch the vids! There are some new images, too!

http://psp.ign.com/articles/885/885328p1.html

Finally! We haven't heard anything on the PSP version for some months now. It's all been about the Wii until now!

Man, even the PSP version has 15 different Lightsaber color crystal options! That means more blade-color options! I hope we get to combine them for different colors and maybe even effects! I'd love to have a gold blade like on KOTOR!



Wow.... I'm going to love that Historic Mission!

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. I especially love the sound effects, and the lightsaber isn't too shabby either.

The sound quality is awesome, too! And the lightsaber looks great compared to Battlefront 2.

Sorry bout the low quality, but at least you can still tell what is going on.

Kay, just watched a commercial for this... looked pretty good. Not much of a SW fan, though.
