Keep in mind at the end of February that you'll only have 13 days to claim Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, rather than the usual 15, due to the shorter month.
Of course, you've also still got time to claim some of this month's Games with Gold. Word of Van Helsing: Deathtrap (Xbox One) and Rayman Origins (Xbox 360) are available until the end of the month, and you have until February 15 to claim Killer Instinct Season2 Ultra Edition (Xbox One).
The only requirements to get the games is to claim them within the specified dates and be an Xbox Live Gold member. If you ever cancel your subscription, you get to keep the Xbox 360 games, but not the Xbox One games; however, they'll be waiting for you if you ever activate it again.
