Even Kinect Star Wars Succumbs to Kinect Dance Mania

Is nothing sacred?
Kinect does some things very well — dancing, for instance. That's why there are 13 Kinect dancing games out now, but the genre's seeping into other games: games we thought were safe from move-busting. Games like Kinect Star Wars.
The ESRB has rated the game and revealed it now includes dancing tournaments alongside the already-revealed podracing and saber-swinging. How much dancing? Enough to get its own mention from the ratings board:
In the dancing mini-game, some female characters perform suggestive moves (e.g., gyrating their hips/buttocks) and wear revealing outfits (partially exposed cleavage/buttocks). The words “damn” and “hell” can be heard in the dialogue.
That sound you hear? It's George Lucas clattering down the halls at Skywalker Ranch, ready to insert a CGI dance-off between Leia and Palpatine.
