Behind closed doors in Lucasarts' private room we saw what may be one of the hottest games this year...

In the Force Unleashed, you play as Darth Vader's secret apprentice, Starkiller.

Now Starkiller is back and badder than ever as he seeks revenge for Vader's betrayal (he really shoul've seen it coming, it is Vader after all). For some reason Vader leaves the killing of his apprentice to a handful of stormtroopers instead of doing it himself. Typical bad guy mistake. Anyway this clip is from the first level after you've dispatched the guards and are making your way out of the facility.

There are a few new tricks up Starkiller's sleeve these days. First and most noticably, he now carries two lightsabers and his fighting style has changed accordingly. The force powers look a lot better in the sequel and the devs said that they've spent a lot of time fixing the targeting system. Here's hoping that pays off. There's also a new force power; the Jedi mind trick will have your foes attacking their own side or simply jumping off the side of the building. Awesome!

I'm super excited about this game and you should be too. If you haven't played the original, you really ought to. (No, Jimmy, the Wii version does not count.) Buy Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II
