Interesting. Especially since that was Luke's original last name. Wonder if there'll be some sort of connection? Also, is this his real name or his 'Darth' name?

Wow! Let’s call him something dark and mysterious... Let’s call him... STAR... KILLER...

I would assume that is an AKA or a Darth name.

Hey Bob. Yes Judy. We should call our son Starr Kyller. Sounds great dear. Maybe he will bring peace and knowledge to the universe. Razz

Woooww. That was incredibly anti-climactic. I mean, just because it's paying homage to Luke's original name, doesn't mean it fits! I'm agreeing with Rook here. Who's gonna name their kid Starkiller? "Well," Some might say, "Maybe it's not his original name. Maybe Vader gave it to him." Vader could do better. I mean, there's a history of cool Sith names! Darth Bane, Darth Maul, Darth Tyrannus, Darth Vader, Darth Nihilus, Darth Sideous, Darth Plaugeous... You get my drift. Now, picture all of those names up on a plaque or something, and imagine oneself looking down the list and coming across Darth Starkiller... Rolling Eyes

That's gorram pathetic.

I believe this is his code name, given by Vader, not his actual name. And he's not really a sith, so darth doesn't fit.

I wish he was black. Too many of the main characters are white males. He should have been a black Toydarian.

Alright well StarKiller is a code name as bedaho said, Also due to the Rule of Two he can't be a Darth or a Sith, so that makes him a dark Jedi. Although the Code name is alttle odd. Neutral

What's so bad about that? I like it as a last name. If it was his first name, I'd have a problem.

Well, part of the reason I don't like it is because there are already 7 other Starkillers other than him... Rolling Eyes

Well yeah, but Lucas is personally involved with the Force Unleashed, so if this was his idea, or if he agreed to it, then it nullifies all the other Starkillers out there.

Yea Bendak Starkiller. But Bendak was mandalorian as you mentioned, i dont think there's a relation.

I see someone else made the connection that that was Lukes original name. There's a coincidence, or not (?). Supposedly, George Lucas originally had a "Good" Starkiller and a "Bad" Starkiller and they met to face off as powerful force masters. At least thats what I think he said in a documentary on the History Channel during the legacy of Star Wars series.

It's a code name, apparently. From an article on EUCantina.net:
Adam Kahn (the LA Public Relations guy) in his reply wrote:
“I can confirm that “Starkiller” is the Secret Apprentice’s code name in the game, but we haven’t revealed his real name.”

Good being a "code name" makes it less lame. Lame, but much less lame.

Jacob Nion.

Sounds like Lucas Arts found the Jedi name generator. Rolling Eyes

Ah-Ha! Ha! Good one, Fetty! Jacob Nior, huh? Sounds kind of dumb for a Sith apprentice. No wonder Vader gave him a code name.

"Jacob!? Are you kidding me?"

"...No, Lord Vader, my name is Jacob Nior."

"Hmm... Jake, or Starkiller? Jake? Starkiller. Jake? Starkiller. All right, Starkiller it is." Laughing

I'm still not too sure I like the name Starkiller, but his real name puts things in new light!

And Luke Skywalker did turn to the darkside for a short time. Dude, no one understands you. Be a little more clear on what your saying?

And I think it's just a normal name that any kid would have...I don't think his parents knew he was going to be Vader's apprentice. Wink

Originally, Luke was going to have the last name Starkiller.

Yep, Jacob was just in the German translation of the novel.

Don't know why, though.. Razz

Maybe it was leaked to shut everyone up....It would have been more interesting if Lucas wrote into the story that the apprentice was a third sibbling for Luke and Leia. But as episode 3 showed that would be impossible now.......
