STAR WARS: THE FORCE UNLEASHED - ULTIMATE SITH EDITION is the latest game from Lucas Arts set in the Star Wars universe. From a third person perspective, players take on the role of Darth Vader’s secret young apprentice, travelling through space, exploring different planets and encountering adversaries along the way. It was passed ‘12’ for moderate fantasy action violence.

The BBFC’s current ‘PG’ Guidelines state that: ‘moderate violence, without detail, may be allowed if justified by its setting (e.g. historic, comedy or fantasy)’ and armed with a light sabre and the power of the force, the main focus of player activity in the game is combat. Given the well established Sci-Fi fantasy universe in which this combat takes place and given the complete lack of blood or physical injury evident in it, most of the violence is in accord with the ‘PG’. In some of the later levels however, players will encounter Storm-troopers wielding flame-throwers. Although players don’t get to use these flame-throwers themselves, they can be targeted and set on fire by them and the sight of the player character falling to the floor engulfed in flames is better placed at ‘12’.

STAR WARS: THE FORCE UNLEASHED - ULTIMATE SITH EDITION also has a short documentary about the making of another Lucas Arts game accompanying it, which features infrequent mild language, including singular uses of ‘damn’ and ‘screw’.
