We Dance With Slave Leia To Weird, Lucas-Approved Christina Aguilera Star Wars Remix

We've had a copy of Star Wars: Kinect in our New York office for a few days now. Which means, aside from Stephen's upcoming review, people have been dancing their asses off to pop songs.


Pop songs that have been re-worked to include lyrics from the Star Wars universe. While Lando and Boba Fett dance like men possessed. It is as awful as it is entrancing. [Editor's note: Luke hasn't played this; so when he says "awful" what he means to say is "awesome." It's great! -Stephen]

In the first clip, fearless Kotaku editor Tina Amini gets down. So much so even the game feels the need to tell her repeatedly how awesome she is. In the other four, you can see some adapted songs in their entirety, which means you'll also see Lando, Boba, Princess Leia and Slave Princess Leia gyrate to your heart's content.

We've got a review coming up a little later today, while Michael Fahey's Frankenreview will be up later in the afternoon.


Paradox me

Honestly, I don't mind the dancing. Star Wars isn't deadly serious all the time and it shouldn't have to be.

I have no problems with them doing fun things with the franchise and can see how that could qualify for fans of both Star Wars and dancing games.

The music, however, is awful. They should have either left the tracks as is or simply included 50 remixes of The Modal Nodes' iconic "Cantina Band" song.

Also: Star Wars Weekends at Disneyland/World are neat and include dancing.
