Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

I've been playing the Xbox 360 demo of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.

I know this is just the demo, but _this_ what being a Jedi should feel like -- lightning powers, grabbing and throwing tie bombers, hurling stormtroopers off of gangways, blowing through doors, and taking on AT-STs and taking then apart with Force Push / Grip / lightning

About the only thing I don't like about the demo is the button-mashing mini sequence to beat the mini boss. I tried desperately to avoid that each playthrough. (Nobody likes those, LucasArts.)

That said, if this demo's gameplay is partnered with top-notch story and basic execution, this may become my favorite Star Wars game since Dark Forces.
