Even then, I didn't feel I was in the video game. A lot of the action would be summarized. There were only a couple instances of combat that were given great amounts of play by play. I'm thinking of the fight with the Bull Rancor and the fight with the Emperor. In particular I expected a lot more out of the fights with the various jedi and some of the imperial troops. Like when the apprentice found the imperial troops on Kashyyyk, he does a mind trick on two Troopers, then suddenly he's fighting the garrison commander. What happened to all the other troops?
I guess this is what you get from a novelization of a video game.
