Star Wars Knights Of The Old Republic
Bioware’s first foray into the vast reaches of space, prior to the hit Mass Effect series, occurred in 2003.

KOTOR, as fans call it, features an epic story spread across 10 locations. With more than a hundred of unique characters, each with well-written dialogue and interesting backstories. No Star Wars adventure outside of the movies feels as expansive and detailed as this one.

Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy
We’ll take control of Jaden Korr, a Jedi apprentice who learns his trade at the Jedi Academy on Yavin IV. All this is set after the original trilogy. As we complete missions, we will accumulate a large number of Jedi powers. These force powers can be used to fight against the Sith assassins. Those mechanics are great, as the developers at Raven Software made excellent use of Quake III‘s id Tech 3 engine. This made lightsaber combat an epic feel. Also, if the dark side of the force calls out to you, take it easy, you can join them, just like Kylo Ren did as a young man.

Star Wars: Republic Commando
In the midst of the boom in the first edition of Star Wars: Battlefront, LucasArts developed another FPS set just after the end of Episode II. The player controls a squad of soldiers after the battle of Geonosis in a short campaign with a great story. It became a cult game for having only released on the original Xbox and PC, but not long ago it arrived on Xbox One thanks to the backward compatibility.

LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga
LEGO games have already become true classics in the video game industry. But before the boom of sandbox games that was released with LEGO Batman 2, more than interesting titles had already been created, including the Star Wars trilogy that came as a compilation in the last generation of consoles. With characters and universes adapted to the reality of LEGO, the brand’s soundtrack and the recreation of the movies, it was possible to make a simple title, without voices, but very faithful to everything we experienced in Star Wars. Of course, with it’s own elements such as the construction of objects or the possibility of collecting all kinds of objects and extras, since it’s still a LEGO game.

Star Wars Battlefront II
Star Wars Battlefront II received a lot of criticism upon its release, and with good reason. EA essentially turned a free-to-play model into a pay to win, linking the progression system through loot boxes and giving players significant advantages when paying. However, it seems that EA learned it’s lesson, as now, while not being a perfect game. Star Wars Battlefront II has improved enormously since its launch in 2017. Battlefront II is an exciting and graphically stunning adventure, whether in its campaign or online. Without a doubt, it’s one of the best Star Wars games.
