Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Can't really go wrong here. WoTC did it again with this one, possibly better than their recent kotor supplement (comes down to a matter of taste really). I shall list the new features for your reading pleasure, in hopes that you purchase this product and perpetuate the WoTC Star Wars line.

New Species:

Aleena, Caamasi, Chiss, Felucian, Gran, Nosaurian, Talz, Togorian, Togruta, Whiphid, Yarkora

New Talents:

Various new talents for every class. New trees include Noble's Ideologue tree, Scoundrel's Smuggling tree, Scout's Spy tree, and a nicely expanded Soldier's Mercenary tree from Threats of The Galaxy.

Feats:

Twenty new feats, all of which seem pretty useful (lots of rage enhancements here). The real cream of the crop is the Unleashed feat, which greatly enhances the Destiny Point mechanic.

Prestige Classes:

Bounty Hunters and Jedi Knights get some new talents, Elite Trooper gets a Critical Master tree, and Force Adepts get an Imperial Inquisitor tree.
New prestige classes include: Enforcer, Independent Droid, Infiltrator, Master Privateer, Medic, and Saboteur.

New Force Abilities:
The real draw here (for me at least). Obviously, Unleashed Force powers are very very cool. New powers include: Corruption, Force Blast, Force Shield, Force Storm, Kinetic Combat, and Repulse. Each Force tree (Alter Control, Sense, Dark Side) gets new talents and there's a slew of new force powers and force secrets.

Other:

New equipment all around, an in-depth chapter on the Empire, a slew of new vehicles, and the mandatory stats for characters of the era. I'm probably leaving some stuff out but that's really the bulk of it. Highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover
I am a casual SW:SE player and I find that I truly enjoy the two recent campaign settings that WotC has put out for it (This and Knights of the Old Republic Campaign Guide (Star Wars Roleplaying Game)). Each adds a great deal to your options, has splendid flavor and lore intertwined and seems like it had some decent production value (especially Force Unleashed, as it has actual concept art from the game of the same name Star Wars: The Force Unleashed). But now, onto the review.

Chapter 0: Introduction
The introduction is done exceedingly well. It begins by giving a short situation report on the status of the galaxy; How the Republic has fallen and the Dark Times are upon the beings of the galaxy. Then, it goes on to summarize what you will find in each chapter of the book. It then explains how a Force Unleashed campaign is markedly different from the other era's you might play in. Much more so than the Rebellion Era, the Empire is supreme. There's no Rebel Alliance to help you when you're in dire straights, it's quite an epic set up for You vs The Empire. The last part of this chapter is six item timeline of events that span the Dark Times. It begins with the execution of Order 66 and Palpatine's New Order speech, and ends with the Corellian Treaty, where the Rebel Alliance was born. This is an excellent primer for the rest of the book.

Chapter 1: Species
We have 10 new species for everyone to try out. Each species block is approximately a page long, give or take, and they're as detailed as they were in the Core Rulebook.

Format: Hardcover
When an edition dies out, the books either become very expensive or very cheap. Luckily for the consumer, The Force Unleashed Campaign Guide falls into the latter category.

The book contains character options, campaign fluff, and also a bunch of equipment and enemies to oggle at.

Character Options: Along with a nice bunch of feats, talent trees and the like, WoTC expands the destiny point system from the core book quite seamlessly (and neccessarily... The core rulebook was disappointingly vague on the subject). It hands out a new system of using them also, with new Unleashed powers. The new prestige classes are the Enforcer, Independent Droid (most intriguing IMO), Infiltrator, Master Privateer, Saboteur, and the Medic (favorite overall - who doesn't need another support character?).

Campaign Fluff: Other than just general information about the setting, WoTC introduces a new Organization (as in Entity, not Structure) system in which you can get certain perks for doing things in the name of a group. Though I haven not actually playtested the system, I feel that it would definetely add to a game in which this kind of world-building takes place.

Equipment and Enemies: A couple of weapons, a bunch of Starships, and some dysfunctional droids combined with a new array of enemies to put into your game. They definetely flesh out a lot more imperial troops in this supplement, also giving us stats for Shaak Ti and Kota.

Overall:

Disposable Income: This is pocket change, and worth a lot more than it is listed as. Buy it and enjoy, my friends.
Middle Range: ^ ^
