Swordplay, Jedi and The Leisure Lab

SoulCalibur IV is a game in which ridiculous characters with preposterous swords attempt to slash each other senseless whilst spouting some of the most appalling dialogue this side of an all-night Manga marathon, so why did we like it so much?

Perhaps it's because the action is so enjoyably frenzied, or because it's the sort of game in which a beginner looks like an expert and an expert looks unbeatable. Mostly, however, we reckon it's because you get to play as Yoda.
