20. 'Star Wars 1313' (PS3/X360/PC)

A third-person cinematic action adventure game, Star Wars 1313 brings to life the Coruscant underworld, the most dangerous place in the Star Wars galaxy, as players take control of a lethal bounty hunter in a never-before-seen dark and mature world.

Reggie Carolipio: Mature-rated, a story delving into the underworld of Star Wars, plenty of action — I'm cautiously optimistic on seeing what this game brings to the table. Star Wars has a lot of stories to tell, and not all of them have to be centered around its biggest players or the Force. Seeing LucasArts take a stab at the underbelly of the galaxy should open plenty of potential doors. Just how far they're willing to go, and how much of a game they can make out of this idea, is what has me interested.

Brian Dumlao: Aside from whether this will be a next-gen game, the most intriguing aspect is the game's mature rating. Considering how the franchise is mostly an all-ages affair, it'll be interesting to see how far this goes on the mature scale, especially after the Disney buyout. Also of interest: Who is developing this, and will it have ties to the upcoming seventh movie?

Rhi "StormyDawn" Hale: I didn't even know about this game until I was looking at the list of games expected in 2013, and I'm very disappointed in myself about that. They had me at, "You play as a bounty hunter in the lower levels of Coruscant." That really could be all we know about the game until release, and it would be enough for me.

Tony "OUberLord" Mitera: Out of all the Star Wars games that I can remember, it's difficult to name too many that don't have you playing as a Jedi, Sith or some form of Force-user. You can only Force Choke someone so many times before one longs to play as something a little more everyman than a galactic Mary Sue. The game looks drop-dead gorgeous to boot and dives into one of the seediest parts of the Star Wars universe. Nothing good comes out of the underbelly of Coruscant — unless you are a bounty hunter with a hot blaster barrel and a dubious moral compass.
