No, it hasn't been cancelled, just an E3 preview of the Star Wars RPG sequel at--for some utterly inexplicable reason--the Max Payne 2 fansite <a href=http://dynamic4.gamespy.com/~maxpayne/site/index.php>Deep Six[/url]. Nothing really new here as everyone played the same demo. Here's a blurb about the combat.

My character was a pretty powerful Jedi, and I had plenty of droid fodder to test these abilities on. At first I decided to start hack and slashing with the lightsaber. They were standard lightsabers, so they really didn't do much damage, even though I had the range between "attack", "flurry" and "critical strike". Then I cycled through the force powers. Because the first level stuck primarily with droids, I couldn't use powers that didn't work on droids. However there was this one VERY powerful force move I ended up using a lot called "Force Storm" which works on both droids and humans, which involved calling up a sudden lighting strike from the sky that not only does a hell of a lot of damage but also attacks more then just the character you target, but also characters clustered around him (that are bad).​
I guess they had two choices: make combat not suck, or give the player even more ridiculously powerful force powers to get through the sucky combat faster. That's lateral thinking right there, folks.
