There have been some memorable games over the years, and it would take too long to talk about all of them. But what qualifies as essential? The Star Wars games here add to the universe’s lore, introduce new gameplay styles, or are just a new approach to the Star Wars universe.
1 . LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Doesn’t Take Too Seriously
LEGO : The Skywalker Saga mixes all of the films and the newer series to create a funny but excellent experience. The humor throughout is silly but a good reminder not to take too seriously. Overall, Lego : The Skywalker Saga is mindlessly fun and a great way to introduce younger children .
2 . A Pre-Rebellion Galaxy Stars In Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
Fallen Order is an interesting game not in terms of groundbreaking gameplay but because of what it adds to the lore of the universe. The game provides a look at a post-Republic galaxy before any significant Rebel faction has been established. Players see how ordinary people are coping under the Empire’s rule, and Fallen Order doesn’t pull its punches, showing how the Inquisitors have impacted the surviving Jedi.
3 . Star Wars: Dark Forces Introduces Two Big Features To The Galaxy
Star Wars: Dark Forces was released in 1995 and unfortunately hasn’t aged well in terms of graphics and gameplay. However, it did introduce two significant things into the Universe: Kyle Katarn and the Dark Troopers. Additionally both would go on to play important roles within the lore, but to date, only the latter has made it back into canon after the Disney restructuring of the canon.
4 . Star Wars: Republic Commando Ignores Jedi In Favor Of Clones
Star Wars: Republic Commando is an FPS where players take control of the leader of Delta Squad . A group of elite commando Clone Troopers. Taking on the role of Boss, players take their team on various missions throughout the Clone Wars. The game stands out as it doesn’t involve playing as a Jedi or someone with Force powers but is simply about being the toughest and most skilled soldier possible.
5 . Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast Has Outstandind Lightsaber Combat
What makes Jedi Outcast stand out is the gameplay. This game has some of the best lightsaber combat in any game . Surpassed only by its sequel, Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. On top of that, players could use a mixture of dark and light Force powers as Katarn reconnected to the Force. These two things combined allow players of Jedi Outcast to live out their Jedi fantasies.
