Nightmarish ‘Battlefront 2’ Mod Turns Anakin Skywalker Into Shrek
Ever thought 'I just hate that I have so much restful sleep"? Well have I got the solution for you. There's a mod for Star Wars: Battlefront 2 that replaces Anakin Skywalker with a horrendous approximation of Shrek, the great green ogre. The modded character looks more like a bowl of green putty that's been pulled roughly into shape than the character from the Dreamworks films.
Worse still, in the close up shots it this Shrek's eyes seem to be screaming "Help me, Donkey". Like he's trapped, frozen in suffering.
It seems appropriate that the mod replaces Anakin Skywalker - after all the lad was famously grumpy in the prequel trilogy, just wanting the empire to leave him alone so he could live his life with Padmé. Much like how we find Shrek in the first film, chilling in his swamp, wanting to be left alone by Lord Farquaad.
Now, you could just install the Shrek mod or you could go the whole hog and install the Shrek Legion mod, which changes the standard clone trooper skin to turn them into fans of the big green ogre. Members of the Shrek legion have fetching green armour plating and stickers devoted to their overlord dotted over their armour. Including one sticker on the crotch plate... presumably for teabagging your enemies.
As a sheer fear tactic, the Shrek legion is a powerful tool. What kind of a soldier would stride into battle under the banner of Shrek? What does that say about their state of mind? Will they grind my bones to make their bread? No, that's giants, they'll make a suit from your freshly peeled skin! They'll shave your liver, squeeze the jelly from your eyes!
Truly, a horror show.
