5. Star Wars: Tie Fighter (1994)
Tie Fighter is a space combat simulator, and was the successor to LucasArt’s X-Wing, a video game released in 1993. But while the player flew missions for the Alliance and fought for the light side of the Force in that game, Tie Fighter was all about embracing the dark side and joining the Empire. The missions went from escorting star destroyers to taking down rebel starships, and even Darth Vader was the player’s wingman in a series of missions.
All in all, Tie Fighter was an epic space combat game that perfectly captured the atmosphere of the Star Wars movies, making gamers feel like a hotshot imperial pilot.
