The overthrow of the Republic is complete. The Separatist forces have been smashed, the Jedi Council nearly decimated, and the rest of the Order all but destroyed. Now absolute power rests in the iron fist of Darth Sidious - the cunning Sith Lord better known as the former Senator, now Emperor, Palpatine. But more remains to be done.

Integral to Hear/Read before playing the game

5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 02-01-09

I listened to this book on the way down to Florida from Virginia before I played the X-Box 360 version of the game. If I hadn't, I would have felt the game was sub-par. The story given in the game is nowhere near as complete and epic as the audiobook/book. Now that I have heard the story, though, playing the game is very fun. The game's cutscenes are very short on dialogue and story, but the gameplay, ironically, is what feels most like the book I listened to.

My suggestion is to listen to or read the book before you play the game. You will enjoy the game a lot more if you do.
