o Star Wars: Empire at War
Star Wars: Empire at War puts the power to command a war for the entire Star Wars galaxy in the hands of players. This award-winning strategy game is set a few years before the events of Episode IV: A New Hope, and lets players wage war on memorable Star Wars locations on the ground and in space, as well as experience the creation of the Rebel Alliance, the strengthening of the Empire and the beginnings of the Galactic Civil War. In addition to the single-player campaign mode, the game includes a two-player campaign mode and online skirmish modes for up to eight players.

o Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is the recipient of over forty Game of the Year Awards and widely considered one of the best role-playing experiences of all time. Set in a time four thousand years before the rise of the Galactic Empire, when hundreds of Jedi Knights have fallen before the ruthless Sith armada, the player is the last hope of the Jedi Order. Players must choose a path down either the light or dark side of the Force as they begin a new adventure that will determine the fate of the entire galaxy.

o Star Wars Battlefront
Star Wars Battlefront gives gamers the opportunity to re-live all of the classic Star Wars battles like never before, in one of the best-selling Star Wars games of all time. Players can select any one of a number of different soldier types, jump into any vehicle, man any turret on the battlefront and conquer the galaxy planet-by-planet online with their friends, or offline in a variety of single player modes. Players can select any of 20 different unit types from four factions: Rebel Alliance, Galactic Empire, Republic Clone Army and Separatist Battle Droids, as they battle for control of the galaxy.

o Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast
Star Wars Jedi Outcast: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast is the third title in the best-selling Dark Forces series. A dynamic single and multiplayer action experience, this title continues the saga of the once-powerful Jedi Knight, Kyle Katarn, as he struggles with the power – and danger – of the Force. Through a multitude of complex and richly detailed Star Wars environments, players will face a variety of powerful enemies and once again fight for the Rebel cause. Armed with the power of the Force and an arsenal of weapons, including a Jedi Knight’s signature lightsaber, players hold the fate of the Star Wars galaxy and the destiny of Kyle Katarn in their hands.

o Star Wars Republic Commando
Star Wars Republic Commando is a squad-based first-person action game that lets players explore the elite world of the Star Wars military. Leading a three-man squad of Republic Commandos, game missions take players deep behind enemy lines in 14 intense and challenging levels through three different campaigns. Players have more than a dozen deadly weapons at their disposal, but none more lethal than the squad they command.

o Star Wars Galaxies: 14-Day Trial
The Star Wars Galaxies: 14-Day Trial offers complete base-game access to one of the longest-running and most popular online experiences in the world. Star Wars Galaxies brings Star Wars fans of all ages and skill levels together online in the ultimate Star Wars adventure, as they choose their paths and fight for Galactic freedom or total domination. The journey begins aboard the Millennium Falcon, helping Han Solo and Chewbacca fend off agents of the notorious Empire. As a Jedi, bounty hunter, Smuggler, or any other of the nine unique professions, players will jump into exciting adventures on land and in space that lead them to legendary Star Wars locations spanning the entire galaxy.

What about TSL, JA and Battlefront II? Anyway I'll say KOTOR and JO, since I own Battlefront on PS2.

What about TSL, JA and Battlefront II? Anyway I'll say KOTOR and JO, since I own Battlefront on PS2.

Probably because they didn't feel those were as good as the other ones they list.

I will probably purchase it since it is relatively close to my birthday (like everything else) and it has some games I have yet to try like KotOR and JKII, and some of the other ones I wouldn't mind playing, though I do already ahve EaW, I don't mind having two. Great idea, IMO. And it looks like they are going to be the full-editions of the game, by the sounds of it.

Oh goodie, looks like fun. Don't have any of those games (gasp!) Except for the first KotOR. But even that had a wierd scratch on it even when it was NIB... Might have to get it.

Pretty good idea, if I didn't have EaW and KotOR I'd get it since I've never played RC or JK.

I just got it...ITS GREAT!!! I was smart and already had JKA lol. I had none of the others so thats why I bought it...and a good deal it was. btw I'd have to say that JKA is much better than JK2 (well, in multiplayer that is- JO chat goes to console, and people don't talk much online, I'm too used to the 'chat room' feel of JKA), but JK2 is still lots of fun. I also like Empire at War...I'd never played strategy games that much...but I like it. KotOR is fun, haven't played it much yet though... Battlefront looks cool, didn't get much of a chance to play it yet. Haven't installed Republic Commando cause I ran out of hard drive space :(.
