Rebel Assault II was noteworthy for being the first Star Wars video game to feature original live action cutscenes with real actors. So no matter how cheesy the acting was, players got to see the first original Star Wars story filmed since 1983’s The Return of the Jedi.

The game itself was actually a “rail shooter”. That is, your spaceship would follow a predetermined course through space, and the only thing you could do was aim and shoot at enemy spaceships such as the fearsome TIE fighters. It was like an interactive movie, but with little interaction. But even if the protagonist was a nondescript pilot who went by the name “Rookie One”, the novelty of playing through an original Star Wars story never wore off.
