- "Episode VII: Shadows of the Sith would have put you in the role of an adult Ben Skywalker who was walking the line between the light and dark sides of the Force, unleashing new Force powers never-before-seen in games or movies as he investigated a new threat to the galaxy (a Solo…)."
- ―W. Haden Blackman
The idea of the game was first surfaced in late 2004. The idea was to focus on a character that would tie the films with the novels of the Expanded Universe. The game was supposed to be a follow-up of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, the last film of the original trilogy. Also, the game was meant to introduce new powers of The Force never seen in the films and in the novels.
Despite this, according to W. Haden Blackman, the project never made it past its early pitch due unknown reasons. Even so, the concept of Shadows of the Sith was later briefly revised during The Force Unleashed multimedia project and some ideas were used in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, while other abandoned projects like the video games Battle of the Sith Lords and Star Wars: 1313 (in which some concepts of this game were originally planned to be used) and the live-action TV show Star Wars: Underworld were put again in development.
The game's logo was later revealed in 2008 with the release of Rogue Leaders: The Story of LucasArts, a reference book of LucasArts. In 2012, The Walt Disney Company bought Lucasfilm Ltd. and announced a sequel trilogy, which started in 2015 with the release of Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens.
