One of the most endearing Star Wars stories

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed TV Series Disney+

Needless to say, the game delivered on almost every promise it made. Not only was it an impressive showcase of what the new consoles could do, but Star Wars: The Force Unleashed also delivered one of the most endearing Star Wars stories we had seen in one of the franchise’s action video games.

Fans immediately fell in love with the epic tale of Galen Marek, also known as the Starkiller – Darth Vader’s secret apprentice. The character appeared in games like Soul Calibur IV and essentially became the face of Star Wars in the seventh generation of consoles. Released in every home and portable console available at the time, it seemed like Marek had to be introduced to the main Star Wars universe sooner or later, but that changed once Disney removed him from the series canon.
