You, and just about everyone else on AO3.  Sadly, everyone's calling them StormPilot instead of Puffin, but I guess you can't have everything.

But c'mon, they practically set it up at the end of TFA.

Interesting Wars trivia: In George Lucas's first treatments of the concept, the story was called: "The Chronicle of Cain Starkiller". The protagonist's name later changing to 'Anakin Skywalker'.

Indeed, but my initial title confusion had more to do with the titles just being very similar and me knowing about that game nearly a decade before the movie came out...even if the game wasn't that good.

IIRC, The Force Unleashed was one of the last non-MMO games LucasArts produced and I've got a feeling that the protagonist's name wasn't coincidental. I suspect that they'd finally hit the bottom of the jar full of screwed up bits of paper with George's ideas written on them, if you take my meaning.

Well of course it was a reference to Luke's original name, that was clear from the start. And it wasn't bad (although the sequel was), just very short. The story was interesting though.

Supposedly the character from Force Unleashed was named in reference/homage to the original name of the Skywalker character. But then a lot of different media for Star Wars has a habit of calling back to the original draft work for A New Hope. The people who do Star Wars Rebels have stated they went back to a lot of Ralph McQuarrie's concept drawings for the show's art design. They even included a character named Quarrie in the second season.

Just a bit of in-universe information. The energy output of the Death Star 1's superlaser cannon was calculated by a Star Wars fan with a scientific background as being about the same as the output of a sun-type star for the same duration (about 1/2 of a second). This was based on an assumption that Alderaan was about the same size as Earth and, based on that, calculating the average outward velocity of the debris and using that to calculate the energy added to the planet's body to break it apart in such a way.

Well, there ya go. If the output of a Death Star was the output of an average sun for 0.5 seconds, then consider the fact that a sun maintains such an output for several billion years. With that in mind, it's logical to conclude that you could literally destroy several billion planets with the entire energy output of one star. They could hypthetically use some justification like having to use EXTREME amounts of energy to fire the weapon through hyperspace, but this doesn't really fall in line with hyperspace being a relatively common feature in this universe, and even small, private operators (like Solo) having access to ships with hyperspace. It would also make firing it from hyperspace highly inefficient as opposed to firing it within normal ranges.

TL;DR: Starkiller base is a poorly conceived macguffin.
