Yes, yes, and yes. Owners of Nintendo’s revolutionary new Wii system will soon be welcoming a new game to the stable, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. Sure, you’ll be able to play it on the PS3 and the Xbox 360, too, but why would anyone bother? This is what the Wii is made for.

Next year, players will be able to wield their controllers like a Skywalker. And you’ll do so as a bad guy. Apparently, you’ll serve as Darth Vader’s apprentice, charged with ridding the universe of Jedi. That might not sound too appealing for those of you who don’t like the idea of working for a murderous villain, but watch the trailer here, then try to tell me you’re not ready to work for the Empire.—Gregory Mone
