LucasArts go back to their roots for SW:TFU2

LucasArts has a long and colourful history of games development, dating all the way back to 1982. Their heyday, without a doubt, was the point-and-click adventure game period in the mid-90s – everything from Maniac Mansion and Labyrinth right up to Zak McKracken and the Monkey Island series.

Today though, LucasArts focusses largely on creating games based around the Star Wars franchise… but sometimes, they’ll throw in glimpses of their glorious past, like this skin that’s just been revealed from Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II.

That's the most ridiculous name I’ve ever heard!

…yep, that’s Guybrush Threepwood, somewhere in the Caribbean, as he appears in the new game. It’s a bit of a different look for the mighty pirate, but I kinda like it. Unfortunately, it seems I’m in a tiny minority, with most fans of the game protesting the outrage that is this inappropriate inclusion. Apparently, the developers didn’t realise that Star Wars is sacred, and shouldn’t be messed with!

Look behind you, a Three-Headed Monkey!

It is yet to be confirmed whether or not, in fact, the Stormtroopers really do fight like dairy farmers.
