10. A New Protagonist

It became clear by the end of The Force Unleashed II that Starkiller's personality and story were beginning to wear thin.

Despite having already been given an ending in the previous release, LucasArts decided to resurrect the anti-hero, resulting in a convoluted cloning plot that didn't seem to fit in. It's essential then, that the third game deviate from the 'Vader's Apprentice' arc and begin anew - the best way to do this being to bring in a new protagonist altogether. Two characters in the series are very much worthy of their own title, with the now blind General Rahm Kota already being well established in the series, he's probably the best candidate.

Both likeable and unique, a title revolving around Kota's experiences after the events of the first Force Unleashed game would be very interesting to say the least, as players have yet to experience a story focussing on a Jedi on the run from the Empire. A character shrouded in mystery - Maris Brood, Shaak-Ti's conflicted apprentice who fought Starkiller upon his return to Felucia, is a superb candidate to head the next game.

Maris's inventive lightsabers would be just the trick to reinvigorate the series' lacklustre sword combat, and her vague morality would present numerous gameplay and story opportunities in a way not many other characters could. Her fate has yet to be determined, and a strong female hero is just what the series needs. It doesn't matter if they've already been featured in the series or not, but there's a definite need for a new flagship protagonist for this particular franchise.
