Trivia:
In the game, Galen Marek/Darth Starkiller is brought back as a clone and is cloned on Kamino. In "Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones", Kamino was the planet, which was the location of the cloning facility, where bounty hunter Boba Fett and the clone army were cloned from renowned bounty hunter/Mandalorian warrior Jango Fett. Boba Fett appears in the game.See more »
Quotes:
Emperor Palpatine:[final lines] A great day Lord Vader. Today marks the death of the Rebellion and a new order of peace for the Empire. There is but one last detail to take care of. Do you take me for a fool? Your feeble schemes to overthrow me using that pathetic clone of your apprentice were pitifully obvious from their inception. Now Skywalker, you will die.
[Vader ignites his light saber, but is shocked to death by force lightning]
Emperor Palpatine:Captain Sarkli.
Captain Sarkli:My liege?
Emperor Palpatine:Take your troops and destroy the clone.

Fails both as a competent game and as a continuation of the story., 17 July 2013
Author: HipsterSithGuy from United Kingdom

I was one of the few people who actually enjoyed the first SW: Force Unleashed game. It had a few disappointing elements to it but it was overall an ambitious and action-packed video game with a creative and exciting story and some fun gameplay and the climax sets up the premise of the Rebel story in the original trilogy perfectly well. With The Force Unleashed II, the developers decided to take the ending to the first game and craft a story that is too short, lacking in substance and undoes the ending to its predecessor egregiously. It also fails to make up for those flaws with repetitive gameplay, obnoxious voice acting and bland levels.

A year after the events in the first game, Darth Vader arrives at the cloning facility on Kamino where he meets his new specimen, a clone of Galen 'Starkiller' Marek, his deceased apprentice who defected to the Rebel Alliance and fought against his master and the Emperor before his death. Using tissue from Starkiller's corpse on the Death Star, Vader has attempted to grow a perfect clone of his apprentice but to no avail as they had all become mad and unstable. This latest clone appears to be the final specimen but when he begins having recurring visions of Starkiller's old lover Juno Eclipse, Vader realizes that the cloning process has once again failed and tries to kill this clone. However, this one escapes and manages to make his way off Kamino to search for his former mentor and ally Rahm Kota who is held hostage in an Imperial- controlled city on Cato Neimoidia. Starkiller makes his way there and saves Kota in a gladiatorial arena but not before battling and killing the giant Gorog creature. Onboard the Rogue Shadow, Kota denies that Starkiller is a clone due to the impossibility of cloning Jedi. Starkiller however decides to venture somewhere to meditate and find his identity and travels to Dagobah after learning about it from Kota.

The story to TFU II is not just disappointing but also unnecessary. Why they decided to bring back Starkiller is just baffling to me considering how poignant the end to the first game was. Doing a sequel to the game is not a bad idea if they maybe focused on a different character or made a spin-off game involving another character. Here, it just feels like a lazy attempt to cash in on the character using two lightsabers. The story focuses on Starkiller trying to locate Juno and reclaim his love for her but the end result is unsatisfying because they never shared any moments together in it and them setting out together at the end just feels soulless and rushed. The conclusion is also left opening the possibility of a third game which is a pain. There's a pretty cool backstory surrounding the creation of the clone before the events of this game which are unlocked by completing different chapters but it should really appear in the game's main story rather than just be a mere bonus feature. Yoda and Boba Fett make cameos in this game but are both underused and really only there to remind gamers that they are playing a Star Wars game.

The gameplay can be described as repetitive and rehashed. Starkiller using two lightsabers is fun at first but gets really old after a while. The boss battles are rehashed and the same ones reappear in nearly every chapter, becoming really irritating and lazy; although the Gorog battle and the final duel with Darth Vader are exceptions. The only level that really stands out is the final one on Kamino, deep inside the cloning facility but even that can get boring after a while. There is one level on Dagobah which could've been a fun interesting level to play through but only lasts for one minute and only requires the player to walk to the one checkpoint. This could easily have been solved in one cutscene. The light side/dark side ending is still here but is only decided by the pressing of a button. Truly, hard work was put into crafting this game.

What's equally annoying is the voice acting. Sam Witwer and Cully Frederickson, both voicing Starkiller and Kota respectively, stand out as providing the most obnoxious voice acting I've heard in a game. Witwer spends the last level of the game screaming and shouting like a teenager arguing with his Dad. And people say Hayden Christensen is annoying. Frederickson spends most of the game moaning at Starkiller and spouting out 'words of wisdom' like an exasperated old dude who had just been drinking. In the first game, Kota was a drunk has-been for most of the second half but then reverted back to his dignified wise self toward the end. Now, he's reverted back, only.. more annoying.

The Force Unleashed II is a disappointing tripe of a game that fails to be fun or develop a compelling continuation to the story which had already resolved perfectly in the first game. The graphics in the game look somewhat good-looking but other than that, there is little to appreciate. I actually hope that there will be a Force Unleashed III being released that will in someway make up for this but I doubt it will ever evolve past the early stages. For now, I find little to enjoy here. Bland gameplay, irritating voice acting, an incompetent story and insulting cameos from popular characters make this a tragic disappointment of a game.
