The developers also wanted to avoid making Starkiller seem irredeemably evil, and used elements of his backstory and his relationships with other characters to balance it, while trying not to explain too much of his backstory. In order to avoid the character being over emotional, they tried to let short pieces of dialogue and looks carry scenes so that the player could interpret how Starkiller felt. Starkiller was voiced by and given the likeness of Samuel Witwer. According to Blackman, the staff were very hard on Witwer when casting him, but claimed he was far above the other candidates and that "he was already inhabiting the mind of this character". Starkiller's expressions are based on Witwer's, which Blackman described as "a new approach for LucasArts", noting that it "affected the way we handled casting for The Force Unleashed" and comparing it to how people see Bill Nighy as Davy Jones in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Also, the development team felt that there was more story that he could supply, and that a franchise could be built around him. You've got the most heroic character, who's Luke Skywalker.
The Emperor demanded that Vader kill him, because having a secret apprentice was an act of betrayal. In compliance, Vader pushed Starkiller out of a viewport to his apparent death. However, his body was secretly recovered by a Viper probe droid. Six months later, Starkiller woke up in pain aboard Vader's scientific vessel, the Empirical. Vader walked into Starkiller's room and explained that he betrayed Starkiller, and faked his death, in order to trick the Emperor into believing that the secret apprentice was no longer a threat.
This would permit Vader and Starkiller to secretly form a rebellion against the Empire as a distraction for the Emperor. This meant freeing Starkiller, and destroying the vessel and all crew aboard. Successfully escaping, they headed towards Nar Shaddaa in hopes of finding Rahm Kota, so that Kota could train Starkiller to become stronger in the Force by learning things Vader did not teach him.
After six months of searching, they finally found the blinded, washed up Kota in a Cloud City cantina. Starkiller arrived in the cantina and, without revealing his true identity, asked Kota to help him fight the Empire. Kota refused his offer. Suddenly, a squad of Stormtroopers appeared and attacked Starkiller.
He killed them all, and officially started his vendetta against the Empire. Starkiller was also attacked by a member of the Emperor's Shadow Guard. Starkiller managed to defeat the guard by using the environment around him, trapping the guard within a block of carbonite from a cut pipe.
Afterwards, Kota was finally convinced to come with Starkiller, train him, and help him start a rebellion against the Empire. They then flew to Kashyyyk , the Wookiee homeworld, as Kota had told Starkiller there was someone important imprisoned in an Imperial base on the planet, who had to be freed if Starkiller was to start a rebellion.
Disembarking the ship upon landing, Starkiller saw a wooden hut in which he sensed darkness. Kota suggested that he not enter, but Starkiller did so anyway.
When he opened the door, he noticed a prominent symbol. Whilst looking through the house, Starkiller entered a room, and started having a vision of a hooded man standing in the middle of it, fighting Vader. Vader drew his lightsaber, about to kill the hooded figure.
Suddenly, the lightsaber disappeared from Vader's hand, to his surprise. It is revealed that a young Starkiller was the one who pulled Vader's lightsaber away from him; Starkiller notices how his younger self nervously holds it in his hand.
The hooded man revealed to be Starkiller's father was then Force choked to death, and Vader took his lightsaber back from the young Starkiller. However, when Stormtroopers attempted to kill the young boy for attacking Vader, he defended Starkiller, killing them swiftly. Starkiller watched as his younger self was then taken away by Vader.
His vision ends with his father apologizing to him. Starkiller left his old home, his vision having turned him into a different person, according to PROXY. He was stronger and more intimidating from that point on. Carving his way through the Imperial base, he rescued the young female imprisoned inside, and revealed that he had come with Kota, whom she had believed dead.
Starkiller angrily saw her off, and then confronted Kota. He was shocked that they had to go all that way to save a girl. Kota also told him that Bail would be able to help Starkiller begin a rebellion. Starkiller asked where Bail was, and Kota told him he was on Felucia, attempting to find Shaak Ti and recruit her into the rebel cause. Maris imprisoned Bail so she could use him as a "bargaining chip" if she ever got any trouble from Vader.
Starkiller soon found Maris, but before he could attack her, he was halted by the onslaught of her bull rancor. As Starkiller jumped over the rancor to get to Maris, she threw both of her lightsabers at him. He caught the first and deflected the second, and then plunged his and Brood's sabers into the back of the rancor's throat.
While he was distracted, Maris recovered the deflected saber and hid herself by using the Dark Side. After the rancor's demise, she jumped at Starkiller's back with her saber drawn.
He hastily turned around and stopped her by using Force lightning. She then admitted defeat. Despite Bail's warnings, Starkiller let her go.
After getting back to the Rogue Shadow , Bail and Starkiller made a plan to create an organization focused on the destruction of the Empire; Bail said he would recruit more Senators to their cause, and he would try to broker an alliance between all of the Emperor's enemies. Vader told Starkiller that he did not want Starkiller to become too fond of his new allies.
Vader then assigned Starkiller a new mission, telling him that the shipyard above Raxus Prime had to be destroyed, as the Empire was building Star Destroyers there.
After the conversation ended, an upset Juno revealed that she had eavesdropped on Starkiller's talk with Vader. She argued that Starkiller was still Vader's slave, and that Vader was completely evil.
Starkiller fired back, telling Juno that he only saved her because she could fly the ship. However, she replied that she knew that wasn't true. She then told him that he had control over the fledgling Rebellion, and that he had a decision to make: She said that he needed to make up his mind soon.
To destroy it, he redirected an Ore Cannon to shoot the shipyard itself. During the assault, he was attacked on all sides by Imperial forces, so he attempted to overload the cannon via Force lightning, instead of redirecting it. The gambit worked, but a Star Destroyer was sent towards Starkiller and commenced firing at the cannon. Kota, via comlink , told Starkiller to use the Force to make the ship crash into the cannon.
At first, he was skeptical because of the ship's large size, but he attempted it anyway. Though his struggle to do so was great, he succeeded in crashing the Star Destroyer into the cannon, which caused the entire shipyard to explode. The Emperor's enemies then met on Corellia and formed an alliance. Starkiller was chosen to lead the Rebellion.
Vader came into the room, surrounded by Stormtroopers. Vader ordered that the Senators were not to be killed, as the Emperor wanted to kill them himself.
It then became apparent that this was the Emperor's plan all along, and Vader had never intended to kill him with the aid of Starkiller. After the Senators were taken prisoner, Starkiller confronted Vader, who Force pushed Starkiller off the side of a snowy cliff.
However, Starkiller managed to grab onto the cliff's edge. Just before Vader could strike him down, a mysterious man told Anakin to lay down his weapon. The mysterious man is shown to be Obi-Wan Kenobi , who immediately attacked Vader.
Vader fought and defeated him with ease. It's nice to get the artwork associated with the story. While I normally despise when a comic story arc changes artists midway through, in this case the artists' styles are not too dissimilar. The big problem with this adaptation is that it's far too short. It is like a summary of the novel, but omits key characters, including Kazdan Paratus!
I'd really only recommend this to readers who have read the novel or played the game and know the general story but want a retelling of the story. FYI, site occasionally puts this on sale so you can get it for a decent price. As it is, the regular list price is a bit expensive. Paperback Verified download. I was disappointed with this book.
I was really interested in this period of time in the SW Chronology. But I guess you have to have the game to understand the whole story.
There's too much action missing. Entire battles are boiled down to a one page mural drawing. I was really expecting something along the lines of the 'Legacy' series, which I've devoured multiple times.
I've read Jar-Jar stories that had me more riveted. I've never played the game but I hope it has satisfied the inner Star Wars Geek in people more than this comic. Interesting Point: Starkiller was originally Luke's last name while EP 4 was in the concept phase. Shakk Ti was supposedly killed in the begining of EP 3 by Grievous, but that scene was deleted High Points: Baal Organa and the conception of the rebellion.
I liked the knock-down drag-out fight at the end of the book which left Vader without his helmet and the emperor all tattered. Low Points: They show Juno's butt because she's wearing hip-huggers. Gimme a break. That looks tacky in real life. I want to like it but I really can't. But for the rest, this story is from the scenes from the game and novel, with bad pacing. Your not going get anything of this story. I bought this along with the novel and game, feeling like I did back in '96 when Shadows of the Empire came out.
I felt like a little kid again! But once I played the game and then read the novel and graphic novel to get a more in-depth story, I felt a little empty. The novel itself was lacking story and focused more on what Starkiller did to take out enemies, which is all fun when you play the game, but I was looking for more story and character development than just a transcription of the action from the game.
I felt like I was being told by a young kid what moves he did while playing the game while giving me a half-assed description of the storyline. Reading this graphic novel only really put a picture to the words from the novel, and I felt that it just rushed through the whole story without really giving much depth. Die-hard fans like me would enjoy having this in their collection, but it won't do much for someone just trying to find a good read.
Try reading Shadows of the Empire for better story mixed with action to give you a true SW feel. The Game is Based On. Now If you Play the game through it will reveal the story to you. As well as the Del Rey Novel which goes into much deeper detail. Very Important Read. I stop liking Star Wars years ago - but "The Force Unleashed" series is one of the very few exceptions.
I already had both games and this comic is an excellent adaptation of the events of the first game. See all 26 reviews. There's a problem loading this menu right now. Learn more about site Prime.
