Dang, the holidays are at an end... once more. They go by too quickly for my liking. Sigh...

Anyway, I've got nothing else to blog about except this: the soon-to-come release of the latest Star Wars video games, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II. As you've guessed by the title, SW: TFU II is a sequel to the first Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. Players take the role of Galen Marek, Darth Vader's former secret apprentice.

Now, when the trailer was shown at the Spike Video Game Awards 2010, there was a lot of buzz from the fans. In the canon ending of SW: TFU I, the hero seemingly died in matyr style. However, after the trailer was screened, it showed Galen Marek in full strength, sporting dual blue lightsabers (in the first game, he held a red-bladed one). Storyline hasn't been told, except that the game will take place after the first game and still within the period of between Star Wars Episode III and Episode IV.

A new name in the Star Wars Expanded Universe, Star Wars creator George Lucas stated Galen Marek as the 'true' founder of the Rebel Alliance, which will eventually overthrow the Galactic Empire in Episode VI.

To non-Star Wars fans, this might have been a load of tosh. So I guess I'll stop here. Full details of the previous game and Galen Marek would be found in Wikipedia and Wookipedia, the free web encyclopedia exclusively for the Star Wars universe.

Below is a poster of our hero holding his blades in a most dashing way. Later, readers.
