back to article Bikini clad Princess Leia spied shakin' booty in Star Wars game

With Kinect Star Wars launching in just over a month's time, more of the title's features have started to appear online. Here's a titbit that caught our eye: a video showing a bikini-clad Princess Leia being forced to strut her terpsichorean stuff for Jabba the Hutt in a Dance Central-like mini game. Skip to 4m 40s during the …

    Holy mother of God. In all my 37 years, this, THIS, is the moment I've been waiting for.

    So a star wars skin over several existing game styles?

    The spectator value isn't in watching the screen, it's in watching your friends make complete plums of themselves trying to do the dance.

    A Star-Wars motion-controlled dancing game?!

    That's it. I give up. Where do I hand my "old-school gamer" membership card in? What an abomination.

      While I'm inclined to agree, I think that's more of an indication that we shouldn't be trading our old-school gamer cards for those newfangled gamer cards.

      If you need me I'll be playing Rogue Squadron.

        There have been many things in my life that have made me want to brand "WHY" into George Lucas' head with a red-hot poker.

        This one, though, makes me want to fashion a "24-pin" red-hot poker out of an old Epson and use that instead.... it'll take longer, be more painful, and we all know what a carriage return can do to an unsuspecting nose.

        X-Wing here...

    Why did the Kinect decide my in-game avatar would be Jabba? I'm not THAT overweight. *humph*

    Thought it was going to be sexy,

    turns out it was just creepy.

      Re: Thought it was going to be sexy,

      Plug the Episode 6 DVD in and you will note why.

      That... thing... at 4:40 is not Princess Leia, that is an anorexic CGI stick insect wearing the same clothes.

      In any case. Dance-Dance-Revolution for the pleasure of Jabba the Hut. Gag... Excuse me while I find the bin next to my desk... Gag...

        Did they just borrow the CGI face from Woody of Toy Story fame?

      particularly the way her crotch keeps apparently exploding! :o

    Instead of an XKCD ref, here's a Cyanide & Happiness one:

    Another silly Kinect dancing game... TS told us that Kinect was revolutionary, all I have seen is the same old dross for 18 months...

      Well I guess Microsoft still thinks all these silly dancing games are the key to breaking into the Japanese market.

      I'm still laughing at "Minecraft Kinect." The idea of a bunch of people frantically chopping their arms at the TV to mine stuff is comedy cold (and video gaming lead).

    Microsoft, stop, for the love of god just stop

    I'm sorry but this is just the final nail in the coffin for me, the Kinect has been the biggest peripheral flop since the 32X. The games are getting progressively worse not better.

      What did you think would happen?

      I mean did anyone with half a brain actually think controller-free gaming could replace physical controls?

      Too many people left their brain out of gear and for swept up in Microsoft's Minority Report hype bullshit. Idiots and their money are soon parted. I'm guessing that most of those Kinects are sit ontop of a HD-DVD Xbox-adon gathering dust.

        Oh wow the rumbling of a bitter old tech nerd claiming the Kinect and controller-free gaming is pointless...

        ...funny how my family, especially the kids/nieces, seem to adore Kinect. And I adore it because hopefully it will stop them becoming couch loving, socially inept, internet farts!

        I'll go back to Half Life now, with my keyboard and mouse, because it's too late for me too.

          so bikini clad princess targets the kids audience?

    And to think...a mere 12 years ago we had games like Deus Ex, System Shock 2, Half-Life, Planescape: Torment, Baldur's Gate II. Now we have....errr...

    This is gaming? Wake me up after the next video game market crash, I want no part of this.

    (My gamer card is so old it still has stamps from the local coin-op arcade on it. Heck, do I even need to qualify it with "coin-op?")

    I presume the game designers have been taking some cues from the Ralph Lauren school of anatomy.

    no thanks

    Kinect games generally are awful but clearly this one is going to suck hard if they feel they need to bribe star wars geeks with princess leia dancing. It'll be cheaper to just get out my old action figures and fonder myself with them. It'll probably be more dignified too.

      It's a conspiracy!

      Maybe it's a gov-backed scheme to help geeks' fitness.

    Target Market?

    I've grown up with Star Wars - I was 5 when the first movie was released. Of all the times I have spent since then watching the movies and playing the various games, I have never once thought...

    "I wish I could be a slave-girl like Leia, and dance for a slug-dude. That'd be awesome!"

    I'm therefore not sure who the target market for this game is, but while I can understand young men wanting to watch a CGI representation of a female dressed up as Leia gyrate in front of them, I don't imagine many of them want to do the same thing themselves.

    I expect they'll be too busy with other gestures - ones that the Kinect will hopefully ignore. Of course, if Kinect has fap-detection, this could well be the most hilarious mini-game ever.
