Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II by Haden Blackman
The end of the story in the hugely popular game The Force Unleashed left the Star Wars galaxy poised at the brink of civil war. But before that can happen, the Emperor and his apprentice, Darth Vader, have another plan already in play. The author of the original game, Haden Blackman, returns with a new story of treachery, deception, and the manipulation of the overwhelming power of the Force.
I would like to point out this is my first review for a graphic novel, although I have read a few of the Star Wars graphic novels before and have enjoyed those.
For me, this particular graphic novel never really worked or took off. The artwork and layout are superb but if feels a little disjointed and rushed in the execution of the storytelling.
I understand the books are going to be quick reads but it was over far too soon and the ending felt rushed and just leads onto another sequel.
I have not played the game so I am unable to comment on the parallels between the book and the game.
All in all, I felt underwhelmed by this graphic novel, the artwork is great but I was unable to sympathise with the characters and found the storyline forced and rushed, and the ending awkward.
