Things must be settled.
Kota will go down, but starkiller may have a different destiny who knows. He may retire somewhere safe with Juno, or or she may die and he goes dark again. Or he saved her but imprison himself somewhere for 20 years by doing so. Well i can think of a few more endings but i am sure EA can do it better.
BioWare stole my knock down!

These are some pretty good ideas and comment. If this game does come out I would like to see that when you play as starkiller I would to see some new mechanics. I am thinking of being able to use punches and kicks, to join your lightsabers to make a saberstaff, and to be able to pick up other weapons like blasters, techstaffs, Vibroblade, etc. as you kill enemies.

They announced a new animated series called Star Wars Rebels that takes place between episodes 3 and 4, so they might retcon it instead.

I hope the horrible pain that is TFU is forgotten and buried with a 20 ton slab of carbonite.

This. The Force Unleashed seems just like bad fan fiction (like the vast majority of the EU around and after the movies).

I am very curious to know exactly why people think that TFU has a poor story when it one an award from the Writers Guild of America for Best Video Game Writing...

I love TFU series and Galen marak has become my favorite Star Wars character and I think it would be sad if they don't continue his story.

Can't wait to pay 60e for another 4h tech demo again.
Those that demand respect deserve only pity.

TFU II was left on something of a major cliffhanger in the sense that several loose ends were left dangling that, for the sake of continuity, need to be tied up. Namely:

  • The existence of Rahm Kota, a Jedi, contradicts what Yoda said to Luke on his death bed: 'Luke, when gone am I... the last of the Jedi will you be.' This essentially means that Rahm Kota has to die somehow by the events of Return of the Jedi and given that he made no appearance in the previous films despite being a major part of the Rebel Alliance probably should be dead by the time of A New Hope.

  • The existence of the Starkiller clone. Again similar reasons to Rahm Kota. He may not be a Jedi but he is a major force user, he sort of has to die or disappear too.

  • Vader captured, pretty obvious here. Vader obviously somehow escapes from captivity given the fact he participated in several events afterwards. So this needs to be covered.

  • Boba Fett. At the end of TFU II we see Boba Fett's ship detach from a hunk of space debris and set off in pursuit of the Rogue Shadow. What happens next? We need to know.

So yeah, I feel the TFU II was kinda setting itself up for a sequel and given its brevity was more of an interlude between two 'episodes' than a major installment. What's more they left several plot holes in continuity that need to be filled.

And personally, I'd love to see TFU III. TFU was a great game but fell short of excellent because it was hampered by pretty poor mechanics, however it had an excellent story and great voice acting and amazing visual design. TFU II corrected the game mechanic issues and pretty much perfected it and the visuals were even more stunning, but again fell short of its full potential but was too short and the story was not as good, though it had some great moments.

TFU III has the potential to combine the excellent story telling with excellent game mechanics and essentially fix the problems that are making it fall short of its full potential and make a really, really excellent game. Because really TFU should be an excellent game, they just haven't got it right yet.

Both games also sold pretty exceptionally well, so EA would be foolish not to monopolise on such an oppurtunity. And well know how much they love money.
TFU is not considered canon in anyway, AFAIK. Meaning, the game is just there to make a made up story for entertainment. I can't remember the source of this however.

Not exactly. TFU is C-Canon or continuity canon. C-Canon can be overidden by T-Canon (Television canon) and G-Canon (George Lucas canon) but it still remains a part of Star Wars continuity and therefore does bear some weight.

So yes, in terms of the Star Wars universe, those events did happen.
