Getting those big-budget ambitions green lit for Star Wars games is no easier after The Force Unleashed's success of 7m copies sold.
That's what exec producer Haden Blackman says, who is real busy with The Force Unleashed 2. They need "solid argument" every time.
"No, it hasn't made it easier but it hasn't made it harder. It's a difficult business and we have to always be cognisant of cost and team size and whatnot so we have to be able to come in with a solid argument for it," Blackman told .
Admittedly selling the idea of a sequel to The Force Unleashed wasn't the hard part, but securing investment for newer and better technology for the game was.
"It wasn't hard to argue for a sequel but what we we're going to do, how we were going to approach it and the work we were going to do on the engine - those were definitely discussions we had to have," he continued.
"The budget and things like that are always discussed, the great news is that because it's a seasoned team that worked on TFU 1 we're more efficient and able to experiment more and get the most out of it. TFU 2 looks far better than TFU 1, I hope you guys can agree."
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 releases on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC October 26th.
