If you’re like everyone else and simply can’t get enough Star Wars right now, your best bet is to probably turn to the wonderful world of video games. There have been many Star Wars video games over the years, some terrible, but some, amazing.
The Force Unleashed
A surprisingly good story taking place between Episode III and Episode IV, The Force Unleashed also provides exciting gameplay featuring over-the-top force abilities. The game is a little short, but still worth a play through nonetheless.
The current killer Star Wars title. We all know the features. Giant multiplayer arenas. HD graphics. But best of all, nothing from prequels.
Shadows of The Empire
An N64 classic allows you to take control of smuggler Dash Render as you experience a story that intertwines between the events of The Empire Strikes Back and Return Of The Jedi.
Rogue Squadron series
Being able to pilot just about every fighter ship in the Star Wars universe in a truly 3D environment for the first time was absolutely mind blowing and a completely fulfillment of nerd fantasy. The game of course continued to evolve. Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader recreated some of the most memorable dog fights in Star Wars history
Jedi Knight series
Beginning with Dark Forces and and ending with Jedi Knight III: Jedi Academy, the series focused on Kyle Katarn, who was essentially Han Solo with Jedi powers. By Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, gameplay could seamlessly switch from a straight first person shooter, to third person lightsaber and force wielding goodness.
X Wing vs Tie Fighter
Yes it’s terribly dated. No it never worked properly. But you’ve to give credit to the inception of the idea of putting players in the cockpit of star fighters and letting them duke it out. This really is the original seed for Rogue Squadron and Battlefront.
Knights of the Old Republic I and II
While I would submit that as an overall experience, both of the original KOTOR titles are as enjoyable, ultimate glory must be given to the original KOTOR for it’s sheer level of innovation and boldness of story telling.
