News: Play as a Rancor or Jabba’s Dancing Girl in Kinect Star Wars

February 28, 2012

I haven’t been paying too close attention to the new Kinect Star Wars game for Xbox 360. I do have a 360, but don’t have a Kinect attachment and don’t really plan to get one. The main things I knew about the game were that there’s a system bundle that includes an R2-D2 themed console with a C-3PO controller (pretty cool) and that Chris Pratt from the TV show Parks and Recreation was in a semi-funny commercial for the game. (This also gives me another chance to link to Hutts & Recreation — the great Jabba-themed version of the Parks & Rec opening theme song.)

But I see now that there will be sections in the game where you can play as a rancor rampaging through a village on Tatooine, or as a dancing girl in Jabba’s palace. Now, some people seem to take issue with these ideas, but from what I can tell of the game it’s more of a lighthearted casual game than something you’d take completely seriously. I don’t really have a problem with it, unlike say “Huttball” which is part of what is otherwise supposed to be a serious game. Check out the video above to see what I’m talking about. The rancor section starts around 2:45 and the dancing girl section starts around 3:40. It’s worth it to see Leia dancing. 😀
