    Maybe the game itself is repetitive and over-hyped, but picking up a storm trooper while hearing him scream "please! stop!" and then smashing him into the celling kicks ass.

    Actually, if you really take the time to play the game more than just one run-thru, you'll find yourself becoming better at the game and more able to mix up force powers and the lightsaber. Also, you'll upgrade your character, giving you less trouble with whatever lack of energy you had and more health. Of course you probably DIDN'T play it more than once, so you'll be missing a lot. Unfortunately, I have to agree with you on the issue of not enough game time. I only wish there was a bit more to the game.

    The game may be short, but it's incredibly fun. Great game for any Star Wars fan. I beat it on every difficulty and never got bored so I have to disagree with the game being monotenous. It most definately has replay value. It's a real blast, theres tons of combos and plenty of different ways to dispatch of your enemies. The only thing I would have liked to see is the ability to sever limbs, its not like there would be any blood, it's lightsaber, instant coderization. But freezing stormtroopers in carbonite is a pretty decent substitute. And for anyone looking to kick it dark side, you may be dissapointed. The story has it's own design that you really cant tamper with and still have it make sense. You do have a choice at the end, but I wont spoil anything. Overall, if you love Star Wars, check this game out, you'll enjoy it everytime, it's like playing a new Star Wars movie. I personally give it a 9/10, it has it's flaws and glitches, but so does every game. TFU is non-stop fun, exitement, and a great addition to the Star Wars franchise. It's truly a blast to play.
