Understand Why Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Has A Male Protagonist

Andrew Reiner & Leo Vader wrap up a month of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order coverage by interviewing game director Stig Asmussen, and find out why the game’s protagonist is a male human.

During the interview, Asmussen tells them how the team considered an alien protagonist, but kept it human to allow for a connection with the players.

“We arrived at where we were because at the time Rey was kind of the thing for Star Wars, so it made a lot more sense for us to have a male protagonist,” Asmussen continued.
