Bad news Star Wars fans; you're gonna have to wait until 2012 to get your lightsaber living room action on the go with the Star Wars Kinect game.

"Microsoft and LucasArts have elected to move the launch of Kinect Star Wars beyond holiday 2011 to ensure the full potential of this title is realised," said a Microsoft spokesperson.

This roughly translates to: "There's no way the game is going to be ready for Christmas, it would get panned if we released it then."

The spokesperson confirmed that the delay was for both the stand-alone game and the Kinect Star Wars Limited Edition Console. Boo.

Microsoft and LucasArts unveiled the Star Wars Xbox 360 console inspired by R2-D2 and C-3PO back in July. This first ever custom Xbox 360 and Kinect bundle will include an R2-D2 blue-and-white themed console, a custom Xbox 360 Wireless Controller inspired by C-3PO and a matching white Kinect sensor.
