OK, let’s pretend we’ve somehow managed to keep up with all the weird and convoluted prequels, offshoots, extended universe books and other random Star Wars canon that has managed to spew out of Skywalker Ranch over the last bazillion years. We still don’t know what the hell Boba Fett is doing in the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II.
Well, sure, technically the ‘as useful as a third armpit*’ bounty hunter was alive at the time, but is anyone else feeling this galaxy far, far away is pretty small, small in terms of characters? It’s like LOST and everyone knows everyone. If HyperDriveShaft turn up, I’m out.
The fan-favourite was confirmed as appearing in the game at Comic-con, with Eurogamer providing further detail after receiving an email about his inclusion. Warning: minor spoilers ahead:
“Boba Fett is totally in the game, but you don’t get to play him or anything. Darth Vader hires him to hunt down Juno, the love interest from the first game, in order to lure Starkiller’s clone into his grasp.”
If that wasn’t enough, check out the below video I found while trying to amuse my four year old nephew this afternoon on YouTube. Thank you IGN, you’re the perfect pacifier.
*Seriously? Galaxy’s best assassin? Dude fell into what looked like a sandy sphincter. Oh dear.
