“…it’s not just blowing things up and unleashing the force on anyone…”

Dot-Red-SML.gif Coming Spring 2008, STAR WARS: THE FORCE UNLEASHED, newest game from LucasArts Entertainment.

The trailer is available to view on LucasArts site, but I found that there’s a better video stream when viewed on Yahoo’s Star Wars site (

Yahoo’s site includes several additional videos that are more interesting to my view than the trailer, however, as to the creative paths and processes involved in bringing this latest experience from Lucasfilm into existence:

“New Technology: Learn about Digital Molecular Matter”

“Euphoria: A Revolutionary Behavioral-Simulation Engine” (“…simulation based, not driven by animation…”)


“The Making of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed”

Tthe game is available on:

Dot-Red-SML.gif My thought, however, when viewing the trailer, is, what with the use of the force in the opening sequence, why didn’t this new apprentice stop the craft from crashing, or, better still, why didn’t he send the craft back into the air to fly — it’s the force, after all, use of it can put any broken thing back together and return the busted to whole. The apprentice in black probably explains why that doesn’t happen.
