Top 10 Star Wars Video Games of All Time


If we look at the history of Star Wars games, it’s clear there have been quite a few outstanding games. Games that did the Star Wars movies justice and surely pleased fans of the famous galactic saga. From adventure games to fast-paced action shooters, there’s always been something for Star Wars fans to enjoy over the years. So without further ado, here follows a list of the top 10 Star Wars video games.

1. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (2003)


This role-playing game set in the Star Wars universe was “the reason to own an Xbox” for many – it was that great. The game was made by Canadian outfit Bioware, who would later go on to make the seminal Mass Effect.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic featured an original story with a great cast of characters, which included a female Jedi known as Bastilla, who is amongst the most appealing female characters in a video game to date, and an original soundtrack composed by none other than Jeremy Soule, who is regarded by many as “the John Williams of video games” (John Williams as you probably already know is the composer behind the Star Wars music).

Gameplay wise, the game had great tactical battles, while the combat was turn-based like in Bioware’s Baldur’s Gate games. And commanding a group of Jedis with their Force powers and lightsabers (like Bastilla’s double-edged one) was an exciting experience, and made KOTOR the best Star Wars RPG to date, and the best Star Wars game to date.
