->''"I bring Darth Vader's enemies to justice, and now so do you."''
--> -- '''Starkiller'''

''The Force Unleashed'' and ''The Force Unleashed II'' are video games developed by Creator/LucasArts set in the ''Franchise/StarWarsLegends'' universe, bridging the gap between the films ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' and ''Film/ANewHope''. They center around the secret apprentice of Darth Vader, codenamed Starkiller, who uses his incredible powers of the Force to battle the enemies of the Empire. However, alongside his droid PROXY, pilot Juno Eclipse, and the Jedi Master General Rahm Kota, Starkiller begins to break off from Vader and fight for his own sake.

->''"With the Force as his ally, he did battle with the Dark Lord. And he showed the measure of a true Jedi at a place called 'The Death Star', where hope for the Galaxy was reborn. May all who struggle against tyranny hold his memory in their hearts.

* WeWillUseManualLaborInTheFuture: Or in a galaxy far far away that has space ships, upsidedown cities and other modern marvels. [[ZigZaggingTrope Zig Zagged]] though, in that it depends on who does it. For example, the Empire's ship-building facilities use state-of-the-art automation for building TIE fighters and even the Executor flagship is assembled by an army of construction droids.

For example, the Empire's ship-building facilities use state-of-the-art automation for building TIE fighters and even the Executor flagship is assembled by an army of construction droids. However, the novelization states that much of the heavy labor on the Death Star was done by Wookie slaves. Starkiller frees many of them on his way to fight Vader and the Emperor, so it's not clear who puts the finishing touches on the station afterwards.

Added DiffLines:

* AIIsACrapshoot: The novelization of the first game has the Core on Raxus Prime, whose primary task is to recycle the trash covering the planet. However, after Starkiller's interference that results in the Empire coming to the planet, the Core is convinced that the Empire is ruled inefficiently and resolves to take it over. For some reason, though, it feels that it needs the ''Rogue Shadow'' to get off the planet, even though the planet is littered with ship parts. It should be easy enough for the Core to assemble a whole ''fleet'' from that. [[spoiler:When trying to slice into the Core, PROXY falls under the Core's influence and is convinced to open himself up to it. The Core takes control of him and tries to kill Starkiller. Starkiller manages to defeat the Core and then uses Force Lightning to fry it in order to wipe any trace of the data it could have downloaded from PROXY. Notably, the Core's meddling has also wiped PROXY's primary programming, so he no longer fells compelled to try to kill Starkiller]].

* LeftHanging: Canonically, the second game ends [[spoiler:you spare Vader's life and take him prisoner, but as the rebels jump to Hyperspace, Boba Fett's ''Slave 1'' takes off behind you]]. Unfortunately, the poor sales of the sequel, combined with LucasArts closing three years later (after {{Creator/Disney}} bought Lucasfilm, the parent company), suggests that it's not going to be resolved anytime soon (unless of course ElectronicArts does something about it).
