Looking to enjoy a few Star Wars video game titles? We have you covered! In this particular list, we take a look at our personal favorite Star Wars video games that have released over the years. Check out our list down below or within our featured video up above.
Lego Star Wars Series
There’s a number of franchises available today that’s been adapted into a Lego video game. For the most part, these video games sell well and while they are aimed at a younger audience, we can’t help but love the Star Wars series. You can essentially play the entire saga from the prequels to the latest adaptation, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Platforms: PS, DC, GBA
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
One of the latest Star Wars titles to be developed under LucasArts before being acquired under Disney, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed takes an interesting look at a “what if” sort of scenario. The video game follows a secret apprentice of Darth Vader who is tasked with tracking down and killing off Jedi.
Platforms: PS2, PS3, Wii, 360, Mobo, PSP, DS, PC
Star Wars Galaxies
Star Wars Galaxies was an MMORPG that held plenty of active players for a period of time. Now defunct, players who are interested in exploring the Star Wars universe, becoming a Jedi along with playing through the various expansions, are forced into using private emulator projects that will offer a means of enjoying the game at its once glorious state.
Star Wars Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast
Another great title to enjoy both as a single-player or multiplayer is Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. The game narrative follows after the events of the Mysteries of the Sith, which is an expansion pack for the 1997 Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II video game. Players took on the role of a former Jedi who works as a mercenary for the New Republic.
Platforms: PC, GC, XB
Star Wars: Tie Fighter
Star Wars: Tie Fighter is a simulation type game where players take on the role of an Imperial starfighter pilot. The video game took place between Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Currently, the game only released for the PC platform back in 1994 and it can look a bit dated today. However, if you had a powerful PC at the time then Star Wars: Tie Fighter was a must-have title.
Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire
Star Wars: Shadow of the Empire was the game to get back during the Nintendo 64 era. The video game took place between Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi in which players stepped into the role of Dash Rendar. This title may have been most memorable for its various vehicular combat levels such as the iconic Hoth battle.
Platforms: PC, N64
Star Wars: Republic Commando
Star Wars: Republic Commando is a slightly different title in comparison to what we’re used to seeing release into the market. Players will take command over a Clone commando team that is made up of elite Clone troopers. As such, gamers won’t be swinging around lightsabers but can expect a very solid tactical first-person shooter.
Platforms: XB, PC
Star Wars Battlefront 2 (2005)
Star Wars: Battlefront 2, and yes we are talking about the 2005 version, was a phenomenal game. Not only did it retain the charm and feel of its predecessor, but developers Pandemic Studios built up upon it to deliver something a bit unique in comparison. Players were treated with new vehicles, characters, maps, missions, along with a narrative campaign.
Platforms: PS2, PSP, PC, XB
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
Our last pick for this list is Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. This may be one of the more iconic video game titles from the franchise and for good reason. If you enjoy RPG with deep narrative focus then this is the Star Wars game for you. Overall, the narrative takes place nearly 4,000 years before the Galactic Empire formation where a Sith armada is sent out against the Republic.
