Most surprising to me is that Duke Nukem finally gets axed from the list after a very long reign. OK, well not very surprising but I considered it a tradition after seeing DNF on the list for seemingly several years in row.

LucasArts announces sequel to Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.LucasArts announces sequel to Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.

To say that I was a big fan of the first game is a bit of an understatement. I'll be buying this the day it comes out which of course has yet to be revealed (2010 is the only date thus far). LucasArts has a high resolution version of the trailer over on their site for those so inclined.
