The lights are on
It's May 4, which means today offers a slightly better reason than any other day to celebrate everything Star Wars. To commemorate the occasion, I have put together a round-up of reviews and features covering Star Wars video games as they have appeared on our website and in the magazine over many years.
First off, are our Star Wars features.

Six Games We Don’t Mind Seeing Ejected From Star Wars CanonThe announcement of Star Wars' Expanded Universe no longer being considered canon was troubling as it meant some of our favorite games would no longer be considered truly part of the main Star Wars universe. These are the games we are more than happy to see no longer be considered canon.

The End Of Star Wars GalaxiesStar Wars Galaxies gave the Star Wars MMORPG a real shot, but it couldn't quite pull it off. In this video feature, a handful of Game Informer editors, and one Star Wars Galaxies developer sat down and chatted about the game's closure and legacy.
