A played a little bit of Star Wars The Force Unleashed 2 last night following watching most of season 1 of the Clone Wars this weekend.
The game is, just like the first one, quite a lot of fun, but I found myself not really wanting to kill stormtroopers at times.
The Clone Wars gives a background to what happens to Anakin and the clones and it humanises them. They are the ones that are always left behind or abandoned or discarded which is something I already pointed out back in 2008 when I first watched a few episodes.
At the same time the Clone Wars also show a different side to Anakin, he is a hero and a leader which is more than the whiny and emo kid he is in the films. I’m not the only one that feels this way, as this fantastic article shows:
It’s one thing to be told that someone is a bad guy, but it’s another thing to watch a character that they had come to love and enjoy slowly crumble and turn to evil.
