Yes, Republic Commando is a first person shooter.
Difference: FPS is behind the eyes of the character, often seeing only the arms and gun. Sometimes you'll see the helmet, such as RC and Metroid.
TPS is over the shoulder, so to speak. You typically have an elevated rear view.
SWBF1 and 2 are both third person and first person; you can change it to fit your preference.
