There’s a nod to Star Wars: The Force Unleashed in Obi-Wan Kenobi’s latest episode

Those clever people at Star Wars know how to get their fan community talking. In this case, we have a little nod to Star Wars: The Force Unleashed tucked away in the latest episode of Disney+’s Obi Wan Kenobi.

There will be spoilers for Obi-Wan Kenobi below. Read at your own discretion.

The Eurogamer news team discuss the Star Wars games we are looking forward to.

So, I will get straight to it. In short, the latest showing of Obi-Wan Kenobi sees everyone’s favorite Sith Lord pulling a stunt first made famous by The Force Unleashed’s Starkiller.

In what many have called the most OP use of the force yet, Starkiller managed to bring down a Star Destroyer and more or less eviscerate it towards the end of 2008’s The Force Unleashed.

And what do you know, Darth Vadar does the same thing in Obi-Wan Kenobi. Yes, after barreling into the Path’s hanger on Jabiim, Vader uses the force to bring down an escaping ship.

It’s a small nod to the games, but all the same a pretty nice inclusion from the series’ production team.

Remember when Luke struggled to get his little X-Wing up and out of the swamps on Dagobah? Ah, boy must he feel silly now.
