Sony Online Entertainment announced today that free-to-play virtual world Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures has surpassed a total of eight million registered players.

The game, based on animated Cartoon Network series 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars,' was announced last summer as a means of integrating the TV series with an interactive experience.

It was then released just over a year ago as a family-friendly online world.

Back at launch, the game saw over one million registered users within a week, with SOE president John Smedley noting that the company was "thrilled" with its success.

Smedley said of this latest figure, "LucasArts continues to be an excellent partner, giving our team unprecedented access so that we can continue to create a virtual world that expands beyond the storylines of the TV show in fun and creative ways."

He reiterated that the company was happy with the game's progress, and noted that he "looks forward to seeing our community and games continue to grow as season four [of the Clone Wars TV show] kicks off."

"as a family-friendly online world."

Family friendly? well the chat was so censored, it was realy hard to say anything.

It was so bad i tried to ask a person where they got thier RA-7 droid and it censored the RA-7 out.

Normal words were constantly censored as well, it ruines any possibility of community in the game.

They do have a few realy fun "mini" games though. Stunt gungan was fun but Republic defender was likely the best game.

Another real problem with the service (i had) was after the sony hacking they made you change your pass word (predictably) but it seems every time you dump the cookie from your comp it forces you to change the PW again.. i gave up on CWA over those issues.

I gotta mention for a family friendly game, it seemed odd to me all the real clone wars characters had a POed expression on thier face all the time.

I'll sum it up as, sony's SW version of home with mass censorship and better games!
