The Force Unleashed builds on the Shadows of the Empire multimedia effort to fill in holes in the original trilogy-in this case, the time between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. Darth Vader fosters his own apprentice, Starkiller, without Palpatine's knowledge-to be his tool to dethrone the Emperor. It's the first HD game in the franchise and the first with downloadable content. It's also the fastest-selling Star Wars console game to date. A pair of games debut in the style of the forthcoming Clone Wars cartoon. Lightsaber Duels uses the Wii's motion controls, but since this is before Wii Motion Plus, it's just not very accurate. Jedi Alliance (DS) turns out to be a surprisingly well- made action game.
