Star Wars video games: A visual history

We recap the last 27 years of video games based on George Lucas's enormously influential Star Wars franchise.

2008



The Force Unleashed builds on the Shadows of the Empire multimedia effort to fill in holes in the original trilogy-in this case, the time between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. Darth Vader fosters his own apprentice, Starkiller, without Palpatine's knowledge-to be his tool to dethrone the Emperor. It's the first HD game in the franchise and the first with downloadable content. It's also the fastest-selling Star Wars console game to date. A pair of games debut in the style of the forthcoming Clone Wars cartoon. Lightsaber Duels uses the Wii's motion controls, but since this is before Wii Motion Plus, it's just not very accurate. Jedi Alliance (DS) turns out to be a surprisingly well- made action game.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
