One of the bigger criticisms of Star Wars: The Force Awakens was that it borrowed too heavily from A New Hope (for instance, both movies feature a character named “Han Solo”). But that’s not the only source it shamelessly lifted stuff from. Remember how surprising it was to watch the aforementioned Han Solo get stabbed through the torso with a lightsaber in the middle of a scene that appeared to be building to a heartwarming father-son hug?
Paradoxically, that moment would have been even more surprising if you had played 2010’s Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2, because you wouldn’t have expected a goddamn remake.
The game’s Battle Of Endor expansion allowed you to murder many beloved Star Wars characters (plus the Ewoks), and Han’s death scene features the same style of execution, the same lightsaber color, and even the same disturbingly orgasmic death face as in The Force Awakens. You can see the full scene here, but be advised about watching more from that game, because if this trend continues, you may get spoiled on how Leia gets killed in a double lightsaber duel.
