Nah, don't even have a Kinect. But it looks pretty cool though, despite mixed reviews.

Oh yeah, that's well-known canon at this point. If I remember right, he even started a bit of a family in the years after ROTJ.

And yes the end of the game shows us that the story is not over,from what you just wrote.Hm...interesting.

Yes, I actually liked the sotryline of TFU2 better than TFU 1-although much shorter, it was fast-paced, transitioned very well from one location to another, and in general an epic storyline.

Yeah, the beginning level on Kamino is one of my favs-VERY fast-paced, loads of epic action, and killer ending-Starkiller hyjacking Vaders TIE fighter, LOL! Unfortunately, you don't see any of the Kaminoans in the game though, not even in any of the clips. The Empire is in complete control of the planet and the Timara cloning facility especially.

Cato Neimodia has made an appearance in one of the small platform Battefront games, but this is the first in-depth appearance of it. The sights on it are beautiful, and you even get to wreck up an Imperial Casino.

Yeah, too many loose ends. I've also heard rumors that a third game may be in production, but almost no real information has been given about it. I hope the thrid games fixes the problems of the second-although the storyline was great, it was far too short, and gameplay, although really fun, felt kind of repetitive at the same time. Thowse were the only main issues I could think of, though making sure the third game's PC version isn't complete bug-ridden like the second game is wouldn't hurt either, LOL.

Ha, let's just say, it's a major game-changer, and I'll show you why if you don't mind spoilers.

DO NOT READ IF YOU WANT TO AVOID SPOILERS ON THE SECOND FORCE UNLEASHED GAME!!!

Starkiller wakes up about a year after he died in the first game. He's on kamino, in a cloning facility where Darth Vader is once again training him the dark side. Starkiller keeps on experiencing memory flashes of his old self, and although Vader says they'll pass in time, they begin to affect his training to the point where he can't even kill a holographic version of Juno Eclipse (his love from the first game) Vader is forced to kill her himself, and tells Starkiller that he is just another failure of the many clones that had come before him. Starkiller realizes that his tutelage under Vader must end now, and so the game begins with you busting out of the Kaminoan facility. Vader had mentioned earlier that Rahm Kota (the Jedi mentor from the first game) had been captured on Cato Neimodia, and so you go there to rescue him. Once you save him from certain death in the gladiator arenas on Cato Neimodia, he tries to convince you to return to the Alliance, but Starkiller refuses until he can find Juno and think his way through all that has happened in the past year or so. While Kota believes that this Starkiller isn't a clone at all, and that it would be impossible for him to have been cloned, Starkiller goes goes to Dagobah, in hopes to find answers. With the help of Yoda and the dark side cave, the Force leads him to where Juno currently was-commanding a Rebel Alliance capital ship called the Salvation. Once you go there though, it falls under attack by elite Imperial troops lead by Boba Fett, sent to capture Juno as bait for Starkiller. Starkiller fails to save her, and intent on rescuing her, gives Kota military information on Kamino so that the Alliance could mout a full scale invasion. While Kota and his troops begin to attack the Imperial stronghold, Starkiller searches the facility for Juno where he finds a distrbing truth-the original Starkiller had been cloned and Vader had created a mad army that Starkiller fought the entire way through to reach Juno and Vader. After a rather epic fight betwseen vader and Stakiller, Vader is defeated once again, but before Starkiller can finish him off, Kota arrives and tells him to wait, that Vader is the only one who knows if he is really the original Starkiller and that the Allinace could profir greatly by taking him prisoner. Starkiller reluctantly agrees, and the game ends with Vader being locked up aboard a ship headed toward Dantooine, Starkiller and Juno being reunited, and a watchful Boba Fett following their every movement.

As you can see by the ending of this game, a third game MUST be made. We still don't know whether or not Starkiller is really a clone or not, Darth Vader must obviously escape somehow, and with the ending of Slave 1 following the Rogue Shadow, I suspect Boba Fett will be involved in that breakout...

Labyrinth of Evil is undoubtedly my fav Clone Wars novel. It is the literal prequel to Revenge of the Sith, and shows the events of and leading up to the Battle of Coruscant. Had lots of action, good dialogue, and most importantly, Grievous. If you're looking for a good series of books in the Clone Wars era, I'd recommend the Republic commando novels. They are not quite what you expect, but still well-written and gives the most insight into clone troopers and Mandolorian culture than any other SW novel. Finally, I'd recommend Jedi Trial for a Clone Wars book. Again, not what you expect, and although not as well-written as other Star Wars books I've read, has a great climax.

Also, I forgot, since you're a Boba Fett fan and all, I'd recommend the Bounty Hunter Wars trilogy. They take place during ROTJ, show how Boba escaped the Sarlacc, and give us a lot of the OT bounty hunters from Bossk, to Dengar, from 4-LOM to Zuckess.

61 Re: The Expanded Universe on Fri Mar 16, 2012 7:49 am

Oh, I have a LOT of Star Wars books. Some are the little kiddie books that I got when I was 6 or seven that made up good little, non-canon series but were still good books, but I've obviously now gotten into a lot more of the adult books. I have all opf the movie novelizations, a bunch of good Clone Wars novels, a couple Empire era books (my favorite of these being Death Troopers and my second fav SW book of all time) and a few New Republic era novels like the Thrawn trilogy. My favorite of all these (I think they total somewhere between 20 to 25) is the ROTS novelization though, Matthew Stover did a phenomonal job at recreating the movie and made the words and characters feel even more real than when you watch the actual movie.

BTW, I hate to interupt this conversation, but I do have to point out something I've noticed lately. Ok, with all this Sam Witwir talk bec ause of him being the voice of Darth Maul, don't you think it's funny NO ONE's even mentioned a Force Unleashed 3 around him? I mean seriously, he's had about a hundred interviews in the last couple weeks but nobody's bothered to ask if a third Force Unleashed is in production.

View user profile

63 Re: The Expanded Universe on Thu Mar 15, 2012 4:28 am

Yep, the first is about him before and immediately after Jango's death, and it was very interesting. The second had only one main highlight if I remember-him witnessing the Battle of Raxus Prime. The third involved him trying to reach his father's old bank account if I remember right, and the many characters trying to rip him off and showing him just how brutal the Underworld can be. At least I think that was how thinks went, it's been so long since I've even seen them let alone read them.

HAHA!You have them too,but forgot them,thats awesome! And,wow,against Ventress and Anakin too? They are shown on the cover of the book,but I didnt imagine that they are in the story as well.
So this means that there is a total of 6 books about Boba Fett?

65 Re: The Expanded Universe on Wed Mar 14, 2012 7:53 am

Wait a second! I have those books! LOL, how did I forget!? I've had them for so long, I'd forgotten about them completely! I have the entire series actually, they really were pretty good. I remember the Boba vs. Grievous thing specifically (no surprise there ), and the book about Windu is also very good, and like you said, he does change and gain a more darker tone. He also faces against Ventress and Anakin I think in those books, or at least meets them.

Most Boba Fett fans propably wouldnt like it,because he is still very young and the writer is portraying him...how can I describe it? As a good guy,fighting for justice...you know you get the picture.BUT,in the third story he may be different,because he is hunting Windu to avenge his fathers death.
The second story is very interesting too. The Senate has placed a bounty on Wat Tambor who escaped recently from a Republic prison.So,the Senate asks Jabba to send his best Bounty Hunters to get him.Jabba sends Boba to the planet Xagobah where Tambor is getting besieged from a big clone task force.Boba must get passed through the clone lines then infiltrate Tambors castle and I think he confronts ...General Grievous sometime,because Bib Fortuna said to him that Tambor is being guarded by a powerfull creature.We'll see...
Righ now Im in chapter 4,where Boba is about too leave Jabbas palace in his Slave1.

Its "The Road of the Hunter" or in german if you prefer it "Der Weg des J├Ągers" haha!
I think its somekind of collectors edition,because it says there are three storys in one book and they are also numbered 4,5 and 6,wich means there is a book with 1,2,3.

ARC Trooper wrote:SW Darth Plagueis!

The Darth Plagueis is the first SW book I bought along with another about Boba Fett.I dont know how good it is compare to other SW books,because it had some bad reviews too. But I really liked it.Its fantastic!
It looks like Tolkien's "Sillmarilion"(LOTR universe). The story's of the Sillmarilion begin before the events of the first LOTR movie and end in the beginning of it with the Battle on Mount Doom and the defeat of Sauron.It is boring in the beginning,but it gets more interesting with every new chapter. The same thing with the Darth Plagueis book.The story begins about 65 years BBY and ends with the events of TPM.Its a bit boring in the beginning and in the 9th chapter where Plagueis meets Palpatine on Naboo weve reached the point of the story.
What was surprising was that the story doesnt deal only with Plagueis and Palpatine,but with so many more characters we know,some of them more popular some less.
Some of these characters are: Count Dooku as a Jedi Master(!),Qui Gon as he's apprentice,Sifo Dyas,many popular CIS leaders like Passel Argente,Shu Mai,San Hill still as a kid in the beginning,Nute Gunray.The story also incudes Padme and her parents and of course...Darth Maul.
The book give's us answers for some of the following questions:
How did Darth Sidious met Nute Gunray?
Why did Count Dooku left the Jedi Order?
Why did Darth Sidious choose Naboo for the Trade Federation to blockade?
How did Padme become Queen of Naboo while being so young?
Who was the first to think about making an army of clones?

All these questions and so many more are answeredd in this book.
Once you finish it,you want to watch again TPM and if you do,you will do it from a different point of view.
Absolute perfect SW fans.I highly recommend it.Never again I finished a book of 368 pages in just ten days!
Well you've got me sold! I'll probably rent it from a library or somewhere simetime soon, this book has sounded really great!

LOL, you probably stopped at the right time then. It's around that point you begin fighting those evil, possessed, never-ending-armies of nutty zombies, LOL.

I doubt it, I think if they did a sequel, it would be centered on Boba Fett, and they wouldn't reuse the Bando gora for him when there are a whole lot of other options.
