And the Giantbomb guys were talking last night about how there is no force or jedi at all in the game. They usually know what they are talking about, so I'll take their word over yours.
But yeah, "dark and gritty". The magic words.
The Setting. Coruscant. It's a lazy way to attract a wider customer base by shoving it into Star Wars lore. But, that doesn't bother me. The vid Al Thornton linked looks like it's right in my wheelhouse. I don't mind the absence 0of force mechanics either. After the massively disappointing TFU experience, I may have skipped over this.
Still, I agree with the point you're making(I think). LucasArts trying to resuscitate themselves by funneling all creative ideas into the Star Wars machine. If the game was simply titled 1313, my interest level would be the same. However, it wouldn't get the exposure.
