Startup screen rating: * ½ (out of four)

I think that making a startup screen should be an art, and it's often not treated that way. The startup screen is where you begin your adventure upon installation. The default startup screen is too smooth and friendly—it leaves much to be desired. This startup screen also leaves a lot to be desired, far more than even the original.

The background image for the startup screen actually does not depict Anakin Skywalker as the title of the mod thinks; in "Star Wars: Episode III—Revenge of the Sith," Anakin Skywalker ceases to exist when he turns to the Dark Side, which is somewhere around the time when he dramatically storms into the great, peaceful, and just Jedi Temple ziggurat, and just after I had a heart attack because Mace Windu died and the movie is moving into the "masterpiece" section—Act II. The background image is Darth Vader, when he melodramatically says "You underestimate my power," and gives Obi-Wan Kenobi the cold look for which Star Wars fans have been waiting for twenty-eight years. However, the image itself is of poor quality, and of the wrong proportion. This is an obvious failure that could have been fixed by just... doing it better.

The menu buttons haven't been changed in appearance, which is another problem, because with new startup screens we expect new stuff. However, new stuff did come, sounds, whose most notable change is the sound you hear when the menu itself pops up on the screen. It is a strong, booming lightsaber ignition sound distinctly different from the last, and certainly more violent to fit the image. This is one success, but alas, this success comes too little too early.
