This weekend in LA, tens of thousands of Star Wars fans gathered for Star Wars Celebration IV, a Memorial Day long weekend dedicated to the famous franchise. LucasArts has a presence here, promoting some of the bevy of new games that are coming in the next few seasons.
One of the more interesting announcements concerned Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, which is LucasArts' flagship next-gen Star Wars game. The company announced that an actor for the main character, the "Secret Apprentice," has been decided upon. Sam Witwer, perhaps best known as "Battlestar Galactica"'s Crashdown, will be filling the role. This continues the "BSG"-to-game career trend started by cast members of Command & Conquer 3.
