E3 2010: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II E3 Trailer Shows Darth Vader's Stupidity

If you were killing off your Sith apprentice who'd outlived his usefulness, would you A: Do it yourself, as you too are a badass Sith, B: Leave a few Stormtroopers to do it. They're notoriously great shots and not at all prone to dying or C: Neither of the above. Chuck him in the Sarlacc pit or something.
If you answered A or C, well done. You're not as stupid as Darth Vader who leaves the killing of his dangerous apprentice, Starkiller to a group of inept Stormtroopers. 
Although Starkiller looks pretty much invincible in this new E3 trailer - which begs the question, how hard can the game possibly be if you can scrunch everything into a ball and chop it in half - Darth Vader has an ace up his sleeve, leaving us thinking, did he even want Starkiller executed in the first place, or have we just seen Darth Vader's firing policy in action?
Check out the trailer and decide for yourself. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II is due for launch on October 29th 2010.

Yay I'm not as stupid as Vader! In all seriousness though this does look really good... but so did the trailers for the first one. I'll have to see.

The Trailer doesn't work properly for me either :(!

This could be good from what little I've seen of this but I'll be waiting for the 1st gameplay vids to come out 1st.

from the video i saw off PSN it sounds like he lost his memory because you hear Yoda talking to him saying he must find his path and Vader talking to him trying to convince him he works for him. also GameInformer magazine says he is a clone of the real Starkiller. to me that supports the reason to why Starkiller lost his memory

I am thinking there might be a clone fight similar to the one in GOW.

@6: There were two endings. One where you take on Vader and get killed by him (if I remember right), and one where you take on Sidious, kill him, and serve under the New Emperor.

This one is based on the non-canon ending. The one where Starkiller lives.

You try to save your rebel friends and Palpatine crushes you with your ship after your friends escape. The other way you destroy Vader and try to over throw Palpatine and end up in the Sith Stalker outfit because you failed in destroying the ultimate Sith Lord and are now his servant! 1:18 SWEET! 2:59 TWO STABS!

Can not wait for this! Still play the first one!

Sith clones = awesome

Vader being stupid enough to leave a few Stormtroopers to deal with an apprentice ..... that is just stupid, and unbelievable

The first one was great with the exception of some camera issues, so I will give it a shot at least.

That video looked incredibly realistic! I actually thought it was, at first. I can't wait for this game!

The pre-order bonuses are pretty cool...minus the USB thing- looks incredibly stupid.

Jay Hernandez (actor) looks a lot like Starkiller! I think they should turn this game into a movie and get him to be Starkiller.

the story where Starkiller lives and becomes the Emperors left hand is done in DLC. now that the sequel is in the works i don't belive there will be a 4th expansion. Plus in that alternate ending he is much like Vader and looks like a machine so TFU2 can not be based on that story line
