I’m not even entirely sure how it started, and I didn’t even hear about it until after it was squashed, but apparently a small rumour started circulating that LucasArts was working on a reboot of the original Star Wars trilogy along similar lines to the new Star Trek. I wouldn’t have put much stock in it anyway, but apparently LucasArts felt it needed to be publicly denied, which it was, recently. Rather than a let-down, I think that might be some of the best news we’ve heard in ages. Dear God, doesn’t George Lucas and his company realise they’ve done enough to ruin Star Wars already? One the plus side, if you actually enjoyed the Force Unleashed, the second one is coming along nicely. I would have enjoyed it more if only the light saber actually cut things like a light saber is supposed to, and didn’t function more like truncheon.

A re-imagining of Star Wars? That's impossible!
