15 minutes of uncut
from this third-person, single-player action/adventure
that's set after the execution of Order 66 that wiped out most of the Jedi in
Star Wars Episode 3 (the video also includes a humorous "at least we have the
high ground" reference). This shows your character doing Star Wars stuff as well as
some more commonplace adventuring like Tarzan swinging on vines and using your lightsaber
as a flashlight. Never fear, it also features combat where you use it as a

this is about as much as I can take before it's too much. But it still being
