Worst Star Wars video game ever -- Lucas Arts should be ashamed

Summary: This is both the worst Star Wars video game I've seen on any platform, and the worst PS3 game I've owned so far. It's a great concept, but while the demo is fun and polished, the game itself is not. It suffers from poor level design and a number of outright bugs: save files not actually saving where they claim to, forcing you to replay large sections of the game every time you come back to it; invisible walls and floors that have you walking on air and bouncing off of...
Beyond the hype and beloved franchise, terrible gameplay leads to a disapointment

Summary: I'm a sucker for all things Star Wars, so I really wanted to love this game. I'd enjoyed Knights of the Old Republic and this was just going to be the same thing, only better, right? Nope. This game is set in the Star Wars setting we all know and love, and the visual and audio effects for the lightsabers are fantastic, but the gameplay element of the game is absolutely atrocious.
Summary: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is a truly epic failure considering what this game almost could have been. The physics engine is amazingly powerful, the graphics are awesome, the story is pretty good and you can do some really, really cool things with force powers. So why 1 star? Well, because The Force Unleashed is so heavily flawed and broken that it ruins what could have been a game of the year. Here are the list of flaws: 1. Aiming. Its basically random sometimes.
Summary: The Force Unleashed is absolutely horrible. Do not buy it. While the story line is good, the game is incredibly short. It only takes a day or two to play through the entire game. Also, the game play itself is very weak, and it has no relationship to the Star Wars Universe. The main character has more force powers than 100 Jedi put together. He can blast through blast doors.
Conclusion: ...glad I rented it and I'm returning it tomorrow! Seriously, this game is not only broken but fails to keep you entertained at all times. It's a hack and slash bore-fest full of annoying gameplay that ruins the enjoyment of the interesting story, flat out. It doesn't even deserve a rating at all... let me illiterate: After playing as Darth Vader, I was looking forward to playing as the speedy more cooler apprentice character.
Summary: I wanted to like this game. I waited for nearly two years, read all the hype, watched all of the videos, really wanted to play it. I especially wanted to play the scene where you tear the star destroyer out of the sky, man that looked sweet. I wanted to throw people around and zap em with lightning.
