Should ‘Star Wars’ Get More Creative?

I wrote this post nearly two years ago when I noticed that, despite the new stories Disney was providing, everything seemed to revolve in the same loop of similarity. Two years later and there still isn’t anything new.

The franchise lacks imagination! Big-time. And that became once again very apparent after watching the trailer for the new game coming this October, Star Wars: Squadrons. Let me give you a blunt rundown of where this franchise refuses to take risks.

When The Force Awakens came out it was practically a replica of A New Hope. The First Order is simply a remastered version of the Empire with barely any new creations. Rey is Luke Skywalker. Han Solo plays the role of Ben Kenobi. Kylo Ren is Darth Vader. Poe is this trilogy’s version of Han Solo. The Starkiller Base is the Death Star.

And this story never tries to go anywhere the story has never gone before.

The Rise of Skywalker ends up being a remake of Return of the Jedi. Rey faces Palpatine like Luke had to, the Resistance fights the First Order and win, Kylo dies after saving Rey’s life like Darth Vader died after saving Luke’s, there is no sense of creativity whatsoever.

And it doesn’t end there.

‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’ Is the Best ‘Star Wars’ Game I’ve Played…But It’s Not Without Out Its Faults

For the past couple of months, the buzz around Star Wars has been something else. First, there was The Mandalorian which grasped the hearts of millions with its incredible storytelling and fascinating new characters. And then, shortly thereafter, the highly-anticipated game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order arrived, sending Star Wars fans into even happier pandemonium. I heard the excited chatter and was thrilled to one day play the game.

Nine days ago we finally got the game and it wasn’t long before we got to work. In short, the experience was thrilling. The story was engaging, the thoughtful combat style is very difficult and sometimes maddening (in a good way), the graphics are well-done and at times one can easily just stand in an area and stare at the impressive surroundings. So…where’s the catch, you may ask? Continue reading ‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’ Is the Best ‘Star Wars’ Game I’ve Played…But It’s Not Without Out Its Faults

The ‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’ Gameplay Is Amazing

I’m a HUGE gamer. I’ve been one since I was a child. As a little girl, I would play Super Mario Bros, the fighting game Tatsunoko vs. CapcomSuper Smash Bros, and MarioKart until I dropped. I got older and graduated to the XBOX where I’ve played Mortal Kombat XDestiny and Destiny 2Call of Duty: Advanced WarfareRise of the Tomb RaiderAssassins: CreedOverwatch, etc. And then there are the Star Wars games.

On my Nintendo Wii, I had Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and I LOVED it!

Starkiller in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.
Yeah, the graphics are pretty terrible looking now. This game was made a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

The Force Unleashed is set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope and follows the story of Darth Vader’s secret apprentice, a man named Galen Marek, who is the son of a Jedi Darth Vader killed. Galen, at first Darth Vader’s lead assassin who hunted down and killed rogue Jedi, turned against his master and tried to set on his own path.

It’s a really interesting story that is SUPER fun to play. Leia makes a surprise cameo which is fun. The game also had a two-player duel option where you can face off against a friend and fight with the iconic characters of the game such as Luke Skywalker, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan, Darth Vader, etc. My sister and I would always play with Anakin and Obi-Wan Skywalker, hence recreating our own duel between them. 🙂

But after The Force Unleashed, I haven’t played any other Star Wars games except for the Lego Star Wars games and the MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic, making my excitement for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order that much more special for me.

My Thoughts on ‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’

The Star Wars Celebration is taking place Live at the moment and a couple of hours ago they dropped a trailer and information on the new Star Wars game which will be released this November called Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. I was excited. As someone who’s played Star Wars: The Force Unleashed more times than I can count I’ll have you know Star Wars games can be very fun. They can also be very terrible too though.

Both Battlefront games I have not bought because Game Informer continued to give the games mediocre scores because they were kind of boring. Now EA’s trying to redeem themselves with a new game to play and after seeing the trailer I probably won’t be playing this game either. Here’s the official trailer for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

Okay, I love the trailers for Star Wars games. They are always ridiculously epic in some capacity. I mean, have you seen the trailers for The Old Republic games? If you haven’t just go check them out. They’re like miniature movies, they’re that good.
