Over the course of the primary Drive Unleashed recreation, Marek shaped a romantic bond with pilot Juno Eclipse who takes him on his journey. His greatest good friend is a droid named PROXY who serves as a coaching simulator and comlink.

Having Marek develop into canon would add extra dimension to who Vader turns into earlier than the occasions of Rogue One and Star Wars Rebels. Subsequently, it might be good to have a personality who is aware of the ins and outs of how Vader operated away from Palpatine.

Whereas Anakin turned a everlasting servant to the Darkish Aspect for over twenty years. Ferus served the Darkish Aspect beneath Darth Sidious for a quick time.

Nevertheless, in contrast to the earlier recreation, Juno doesn’t have a lot of a task due to her kidnapping by the Empire to lure Starkiller’s clone out of hiding.

Juno is in contrast to any pilot we’ve met in Star Wars. She works for each side, however chooses who she believes is doing the best factor. A lot of the pilots we’ve met solely work for one aspect of the equation.


Each character wants a greatest pal, and it doesn’t matter in the event that they’re on the aspect of evil. Galen Marek was pleasant with a droid created by Darth Vader.
