ForceUnleashed.net Gets A Makeover

As you probably noticed, ForceUnleashed.net has seen a significant design overhaul. I hope you find this version of the site to be both more visually pleasing and easier to navigate than the previous design, which was long overdue for an update.

Aside from wanting to give the site a new look, I also wanted to make the site be able to present media more effectively. As many of you requested in our previous design, galleries are now separated based on platform and other categories. You can view all the new galleries in our new media hub, with the promise that there is much more to be added still.

The site also needed a fresh design heading into The Force Unleashed 2 coverage. With the game slated to be out this year, expect LucasArts to start ramping up their marketing for the game soon and give us info on what new features will be present.

Lastly, feel free to leave a comment if you have any suggestions, notice anything wrong, or want to give your opinion on the new look. Hope you enjoy!
