I’m probably as incurable a Star Wars freak as can be found. Does that mean I gobble up everything that LA puts out under this license? Close, but not quite. I was excited when I first heard this title was coming out, but I’ve learned to mix in a healthy dose of apprehension. When I played the demo for the first time, I was “meh” about it. A second run through the demo had me feeling a little better about things, as I was getting used to the controls.
Enter the game proper. From the word go, I already like it better than my experience with the demo. This really is a game where you are putting your force powers on display, so it is immensely helpful that you are familiar and comfortable with the controls. You could snooze your way through this game with minimal effort, just going through the motions and executing the bare minimum of fancy attacks, but you’d be missing the point.
