Lucas worked on Force Unleashed

Star Wars man "gave us a history lesson" says exec producer

The Force Unleashed is due to be released in just a few weeks time. Finished versions have left the warehouse and reviews are being written as you read these very words.

"Star Wars is and will always be a core part of our DNA at LucasArts," marketing director, Kevin Kurtz, told Reuters. "George Lucas created such a deep universe ripe with possibilities that it will continue to be a source for incredible stories and gameplay for years to come."


The Force Unleashed is said to bridge the gap between the two Star Wars trilogies (the good one and the bad one) and Lucas himself was involved in its 'four-year' development.

"George gave us a history lesson about what the major characters in the Saga were doing in that time frame, and offered feedback and suggestions about the plot and characters," said Haden Blackman, executive producer of the game at LucasArts.

If you haven't heard yet, Force Unleashed is based around a new character to the universe, which is Darth Vader's secret apprentice. The demo went down a storm and has claimed all sorts of crazy records, according to LucasArts. It even wiped the floor with Too Human.

We're loving it so far, by the way.
