George Lucas' Star Wars franchise has inspired every media genre known and that includes video games where one could battle as either a Jedi Knight or a Sith Lord for the Darkside. Lucas Arts through various game developers placed the entire Star Wars universe at the fingertips of gamers from Luke Skywalker to many characters of the mythology. The action-packed role-play of the Star Wars games took our imagination and brought them to reality in every pixel from the consoles of our homes. The Star Wars games have always been anticipated each and every year from gamers who want to journey in the ways of the Force or delve the depths of evil in the Darkside. Here are the five best Star Wars games over the years:
- Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic: You are in control of a character (male or female) who awakens during an attack on a Republic ship from Darth Malak's forces. This turn-based, role-playing game for the XBox took a person beyond the mythos of the Skywalkers to a time where the path of the Jedi or Sith Lord was perilous.
- Super Star Wars: The Star Wars saga from episodes IV to VI takes you on the journey through the entire trilogy in glorious 16-bit style of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES).

Gamers of the XBox360 to the Playstation 3 can enjoy the greatness of Star Wars with each colorful brick.
- Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Taking place between Episode III and IV, you play Darth Vader's secret apprentice as you play a role in shaping the actions. George Lucas supervised the development of this truly awesome game which gives insight to how things play out for the future players of the Rebellion.
- Star Wars Trilogy Arcade: This rail shooter took gamers through each of the three episodes of their choice and face off against enemies from the Death Star in the X-Wing to a lightsaber duel versus Darth Vader himself. Many arcade gamers enjoyed the saga unfolding them in rich detail and blasting Republic baddies in each stage.
