Before the release of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, we got Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. Players had to play Starkiller, padawan of Darth Vader, quite unknown to the fan base. Truth be told, these characters do not really survive in the Expanded Universe, and Starkiller was no exception. It did not survive Force Unleashed, but they did create a clone in the sequel of the game, and it survived the endings. Then Disney bought the Star Wars brand, and the game has been made non-canon.
Starkiller is alive
@HegoDamaskEU is a user that did not forget about the games. He created the old Starkiller by using Photoshop and FaceApp. He did a great job. Starkiller will not appear in the games probably ever again, but it is quite interesting to see how he would look like in the EU.
Like a couple of months ago, I felt bored, so I’ve made this.
Yeah, old man Starkiller. I thought it was pretty cool.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed was released back in 2008, and it was quite the project. It took place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, and it shows the story of the formation of the Rebel Alliance. The Alliance was created after Starkiller dies while defeating Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine.
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed was a very popular game
George Lucas helped in writing the plot, and the game got a lot of attention from fans of Star Wards. So The Force Unleashed became the fastest-selling Star Wars game.
We know that The Force Unleashed looked like the predecessor to Jedi: Fallen Order. But these two games tell very different stories, and they take place during the same Star Wars timeline. Right now, we are waiting to see if Cal Kestis will be as liked as Starkiller when it comes to the fans of the series.
