Not to be confused with the infamous military standoff prompted by the worldwide shortage of Old Spice in the early 1950s, The Clone Wars were first mentioned by Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: A New Hope. The fictional saga has since been depicted in George Lucas' prequel trilogy, an animated TV series and several video games, including a new entry from Krome Studios.

A demo for (here comes the full title) Star Wars The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes is available on Xbox Live, roughly a month before the full version's October 6 release.

Oh, right, we'd better work in another Star Wars reference over here. Umm, hey, why haven't you downloaded this Star Wars demo yet? What is Tarkin you so long?
