Force Unleashed 2 DLC Features Disturbing Wookie Death

Okay, guys.

What the hell? What the hell is up with the comments?

How can this be "cruel" or anything? It's parallel storyline. It exists solely for shits and giggles, not for some serious drama or Star Wars canon, or anything. A fanfic. You're getting pissed at a fanfic.

This is the very same level that has you kicking Ewoks in the... lower area. Stop it.

Jack and Calumon:
drop the biggest, dirtiest and stupidest bomb right down on the ground.

Eh...

By coming up with a second story that exists solely for fun and gameplay? What's the problem? Why not? It's not a side-story or anything, it's definitely not canon - why is this supposed to be anything but a really outlandish concept?

I'm pretty sure no one is going to buy a DLC that destroys the Star Wars franchise. I had enough from the 2nd one with the fight with Darth Vader. I actually wanted Darth Vader to win so I faced a game over screen knowing the little prick protagonist you play as doesn't ruin the franchise any longer.

Well Chewbacca does die later in the books, though in that case it involved him being crushed by a moon. It seems like Lucas Arts are just trying to give people an excuse to buy the game now.

megs1120:
Can't Starkiller pull Star Destroyers out of the sky? Why did it take so long for him to take down an AT-ST?

I predict it's going to be 15 to 30 minutes long for 15 bucks. That boss fight looks way too long.

OctalLord:

Ah, thanks. I'm not very familiar with the series, mostly, I just knew that Starkiller does something to a Star Destroyer, using the force.

Are all of the boss battles that padded for time?

I hope I'm not sounding too negative, this is a really neat concept for DLC.

Oh no. I have nothing against a story that shows what could have happened if X did Y. I would love to see a version of Red dead Redemption where:

But when you take something that we have grown to accept for years, then destroy it, even just for fun, just to get a laugh, then that's when stupidity sets in. Especially when they are taking the two most lovable characters FROM THE ENTIRE FRANCHISE, and killing them. Killing them right before our eyes in a way that seems unreal to see. When I saw this, my mind thought only one thing; "This can't be real. It's not happening." While it may not be happening, the one thing that sets into people's minds is that this is actually plausible. Very Plausible in fact, considering just how powerful Starkiller is and how he could easily do all that, but it's a fact we can't accept. We don't want to accept it despite the facts being there.

Even if this is the equivalent of fan fiction, reading a story in destroys them in some way is horrible. What's worse is making money from it.

Calumon: Getting stuff from doing things you don't like isn't nice either. Unless it's a lot of stuff. Then you can feel great!

Disturbing you say... they fought an died, I don't see the big deal.

But I can't not mention the horrible glitches in this game, the models are all over the place, and the walker looked like it was just floating there while his legs were hanging around, and why does Han look like taken from a 10 year old game when the BadlyNamedJedi guy is modeled to perfection?!

I'm tempted to get this game just to list all the poop in it.

"This can't be real. It's not happening."

It is not real. It is not happening. It is not destroying anything.

The original films still exist, are still valid, are still canon and nothing is changed. It's just a level.

Do fan films where someone playing Luke Skywalker gets offed anger you too? I've seen those. They are fan films. They have as much to do with the main story as this - nothing.

They don't even look like Chewbacca and Han Solo. And even if they did, so what?

ok i officaly have to get this game im sorry people but i LIKE non canon stuff that way they arnt shakled to one story. (though i have to say chuwie dieing like that.....just distrubing)

I'm fine with seeing another actor pose as someone else. I saw that Star Wars in 10 minutes thing and was fine with it, even though it was being portrayed by people who looked nothing like any of them. Now, let me tell you why I hate it, because it's pretty much exactly the same.

Take your favourite franchise, series, film, game or TV show. Now go read a fanfic in which they all have sex with each other, even if they had no emotions or didn't even meet. Even read a Slash-Fic, a fiction where two characters meet in other franchises and then have sex, anything. It doesn't exist in canon and it won't affect the entire plot since it didn't happen. But it's there. It is always there. It will forever be there, and because you've seen it, it's in your head now too. This may not be as scarring as a Star Wars rule 34, but it's equally as upsetting. Especially since they're just thrown away so carelessly.

This is why alternate situations in already laid out stories have to tread carefully and be handled judged as one slip and you can't be forgiven, because you have created something where nothing can be forgotten. A horrible situation where what we knew is replaced with what could have been if something different happened.

Calumon: Arguing makes me sad... : (

Okay, I'm not going to look for a fanfic where Ghost and McTavish get it on, thank you very much.

However, with that said, the only reason this very... jarringly out of character. And sometimes very in-detail, and, therefore, horrifying.

Nothing like that here. Han Solo and Chewie actually can die, that's one. They don't get horrifically murdered in bloody detail or torn to shreds, that's two.

Really, is this scene going to, in any way, change your perception of the characters? Of course, not. In fact, it's a different timeline - they might as well not be themselves. I don't see how this is supposed to matter one bit, even if you will remember the situation.

If it evokes sadness, they succeeded. If you believe they should've given the characters a far more deserving send-off even in this pseudo-side story, that's absolutely fine. However, this in no way makes it "the biggest, dirtiest and stupidest bomb".

Jack and Calumon:

Calumon: Arguing makes me sad... : (

Yeah. Not particularly fond of it, too. Except when it's about politics.

With that said, I think it's unfair that LucasArts are being reprimanded for getting somewhat creative because seeing familiar characters get killed in some fanfic-equivealent upsets them.

P.S. No, I'm not going to look for the MW2 slash fics. However, I would be interested to know if those actually existed.

Not going to check that. NSFS (not safe for soul).

The Sith levels of TFU have had the odd side effect of convincing me never to go over to the Dark Side in any Star Wars game, because the Sith are just wankers.

Ben Kenobi being killed by that overpowered, posturing, one-dimensional twat in the first game's DLC was enough for me. TFU is just fanfic now, and really really bad fanfic at that.

I can't believe how shitty the DLC for both TFU games are. Compare the graphics and cinematics of the DLC to the main games and you see a huge difference.

Also, that was the worst Han Solo impersonation ever.

Sigh, just another instance where super overpowered Starkiller shows how incredibly awesome he is by killing two loved Star Wars characters with almost no effort.
I'm not going as far as some other posters but come on...its not even a particular interesting scenario (if you leave out killing Ewoks). He kills them because he's all powerful. He already beat everyone else in the Star Wars canon. He's just a lame and uninteresting character and a Mary Sue on top of it with a romance that is even more stupid than the one between Anakin and Padme.
He also made force lightning uninteresting and mundane...
Sigh...can we put him to rest already? Please?

I'm not a Star Wars nerd (and by Star Wars nerd, I mean someone who memorized all the movies and books), but maybe the reason that everyone's upset is not that Han and Chewie died, but how they died. Here's something I want to ask all of you Star Wars nerds: What if instead of Starkiller, Darth Vader showed up? How would the fight have turned out then? Would they have given Vader a run for his money or would he have killed them just as easily as Starkiller did?

Refreshing.

I never did like the star wars characters anyway.

megs1120:

Because video games still use the ridiculous "give all bosses a ton of health to make them hard" philosophy.

Especially with this series where the whole point is to make you feel like a badass. But then boss fights come in and you feel like a pansy. I hate bosses in games.

JourneyThroughHell:
That's... dark. Really dark.

And I like that, you know. Yeah, that's exactly what they were going for and it works, really. It's supposed to be dark, it's supposed to be hard to watch for Star Wars fans.

It's pretty good.

Also,

That...actually sounds kinda awesome. Yeah, I would like to see that.

Awesome. I hate wookies.

Tom Goldman:
Starkiller not only shoves his lightsaber into the faces of cute, little Ewoks...

Sold.

InsanityBaronOfAtrocity:
Woah. Surprised at how seriously people have been taking all this asking whether it was handled properly? Jesus Christ guys. The reaction I've seen from the community so far is the only depressing thing. Nobody important has cared about starwars for 20+ years.

I think youre on the wrong forum

No. Just no. Fuck you Lucas Arts.

Fuck you in the face.

Huh. I am reminded of

Still not getting the game and that glitch half way through didn't slip past me.

Wow, this game just looks fucking awful. Seriously, are you sure this isn't for the Nintendo 64? I'm pretty sure I've seen prettier games on there..

Yeah. They dropped a moon on him. No, literally.

I could hardly bear myself to choose the dark side ending in that game.... soooo dark, and there weren't even cookies >:(

I wasn't too interested in this game after playing the first one and feeling apathetic about it, but this DLC just adds to the enormous piles of ridiculous feats Starkiller has accomplished. He's such a poser jedi/sith >.>

I think I would feel more sorry if Han didn't look like a wax puppet's puke.

All in all, pretty badass scene. Too bad the core game was crappy.

...Ok, now George is LITERALLY killing our childhood memories at this point :'(

Lucas has nothing to do with the game, besides having his name on it.

Still, he had to approve of the game before it got made as I understand to put his name on it, and so it is the same difference.

Besides, who is writing these guy who writes the checks?

Oh, please. His level of approval on that DLC was "It'll make us more money, right? Yeah? Ok. Nah, I don't need to see the details." And you know it.

Also, what's wrong with all of you people? The idea of a "what if" situation in a game is always at the very least mildly entertaining, sometimes interesting, sometimes shocking, and sometimes hilarious.

In this case, it's a little shocking and entertaining. I don't see why so many of you guys are bashing it so much just because he "killed Han and Chewie".

You should be bashing it because it looked like one of the lamest boss fights in either game, and it was glitchy as hell to boot :P

Meh, I just thought it was kinda lame..
And Starkiller in this clip kinda reminds me of Desann's Reborn.

Yup.

I had my laugh for the day.

Thank you, sir XD

This just ruined my fucking night.
At least the fan fiction was the kind which makes you go ":') chewie is so brave, helping everybody else" and then you burst into tears over it and then pick yourself up.
This is like chewie is so powerless to some a-grade knob with a lightsaber and gets flung about like a rag doll.
This has really ruffled my fucking jimmies.
