Acknowledging the creation of Star Wars Day (May 4th) with its catchy catch-phrase "May the 4th Be With You" that was created by some brilliant PR somewhere, Microsoft is pulling out all the stops to bring gamers eye-catching Star Wars gaming goodness, including the following:
Kinect Star Wars -- the Game

Kinect Star Wars -- the Xbox 360 Bundle

Free eBook: Proper Care and Feeding of your Rancor
In addition to the above mostly to be expected offers there is also the "Proper Care and Feeding of your Rancor" eBook that gamers can download for free, offering the opportunity to become the Rancor by learning about which rancor is best for jumping, smashing, or flying -- all questions that are answered in this free downloadable gift booklet that can be had by hitting the Google Docs Link to the Book -- which you will probably want to print out for bathroom reading, we are just saying...
