See first trailer from Clone Wars: Lightsaber Duels

The announcement of Clone Wars: Lightsaber Duels had us hopeful that we'd finally get that immersive Wiimote-as-lightsaber game that we'd been hoping for since ... well, since we first saw the Wiimote. But now that we've gotten a look at the above trailer, it seems that our dream, once again, has flitted just out of our grasp.

Sure, it looks nice, especially for a Wii game, what with all the fancy lightsaber effects and stylized character models. But it's just not the game we want. Here's hoping that the game will still scratch some itch, even if we don't know we have it yet.
