Kinect Star Wars features dancing mini-game

Kinect Star Wars features a dancing mini-game, with some characters' "suggestive moves" cited as a reason behind the Teen rating.

Because no Kinect experience is complete without some rhythmic limb-flailing, Kinect Star Wars will include a dancing mini-game. A description from the ESRB revealed the feature, including some of the sexy-time reason for its Teen rating.

"In the dancing mini-game, some female characters perform suggestive moves (e.g., gyrating their hips/buttocks) and wear revealing outfits (partially exposed cleavage/buttocks)," the ESRB (via Eurogamer) states. Cleavage and buttocks are enough to earn a T by themselves, no doubt, but other reasoning includes cries of pain from crushed characters, melee and space combat, and the words "damn" and "hell." Hopefully that's in the context of, "A damn dancing mini-game. What the hell?"

The game (and its themed Xbox 360) was delayed into 2012. Microsoft said the move was to "ensure the full potential of this title is realized." And by full potential, they meant they wanted to put Sy Snootles in it.

      I like to judge games by their ESRB summaries, especially the examples of drug/sex/alcohol references and foul language.

        I am going to rent this.. It looks damn awful, but it's Star Wars and need to see for myself. Dancing mini-games though? Guess I won't be needing Dance Central 2?

      If this wasn't a Star Wars game, it would've been canned long ago. Fruit Ninja Kinect beat it to market, and it seems that the non-saber and non-force-move mechanics are going to fall into the usual Kinect mini-game tropes.

      As it is, it looks like something that fell off of the Kinect launch releases truck. The E3 demo was humiliating.
