Darth Vader game in the works

Darth Vader gameA recent NY Times article showcased LucasArts president Jim Ward, and the company's success in 2005 with two of the top three selling games (Battlefront II and Episode III). It also mentions a forthcoming Star Wars title with a new storyline that "delves deeper into Darth Vader's history."

What sort of mischief could the Dark Lord of the Sith be getting into? Whatever it is, I'm sure it will be all Obi-Wan's fault. GameSpot speculates this new game will take place between Episodes III and IV, which would make sense since that is the least explored time period in Vader's history (Dark Horse's Empire comic book notwithstanding). We'll keep you updated as more information rolls in from our Bothan spies.
