Star Wars: Force Unleashed for Wii!

The most anticipated game this year (anticipated by me, at least), is coming to the Wii! It's Star Wars Force Unleashed. Basically you get to play as a sith lord and have amazing force abilities like picking planes out of the air and crashing them into buildings. Here's the youtube video of the official trailer that got me excited:
