Pretty good game
I'm not one of those more advanced gamers and prefer easier controls, but I found this Star Wars game to be pretty fun. I really love the character interaction. With that being said, I'm not really into strategy games and would prefer a game more like KOTOR. But it's still a pretty good game.
Violence: Star Wars is known for its action, but it's also known to be fairly mild. Blasters are routinely used to shoot at enemies; when you go into battle, you kill enemies and your character can die, but it's not graphic in any way (no blood is seen, for example).
