Star Wars game eerily predicted huge Force Awakens spoiler

Game-playing Star Wars fans might have felt an eerie sense of déjà vu while watching a climactic scene in The Force Awakens

Because a game from five years ago nailed a major spoiler from the new film (stop reading now if you haven’t seen Force Awakens). 

The moment where Kylo Ren kills Han Solo is mirrored in a game that even has a similar-sounding title — Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2.

Even the camera angles are similar, with the villain Starkiller embracing Solo, stabbing him through the heart with his red lightsaber…

… and then there’s a reversal shot of Solo’s expression…

No tender face caress though! 

Check out the video below (sequence starts around the :45 mark);
