We celebrate the end of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the franchise's best lightsaber fights, and discuss Xbox setting expectations disastrously wrong with this week's event.
This week promised the much-hyped first look at next-generation gameplay footage from Xbox, but the event was…well, underwhelming, to say the least. A lot of promising titles were introduced, but with almost no gameplay to speak of, how did Xbox and their partners set expectations so disastrously wrong? We talk about all that and more, after a big Star Wars hour at the top of the show. The final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars finished this week, and we get both a review of that from Sean and some thoughts from Jonathan on starting the series fresh. And to further celebrate Star Wars, we also count down the best lightsaber fights in the live-action movies and the animated TV shows, reminding us how much Star Wars there is to love even with the most recent movie being a steaming pile of bantha fodder.
