The lights are on
It's May 4, which is Star Wars day, so it's a good excuse to do something we like to do anyway: talk about Star Wars.
What Star Wars video game franchise would you like to see make a return? Whether it be by way of sequel, or reboot? Star Wars: Battlefront is an obvious choice (and one that made a surprise appearance today), but what about the slightly more obscure Star Wars video games? How about a new Republic Commando, Bounty Hunter, Podracer, Super Star Wars game, Rogue Squadron, or Masters of Teräs Käsi game?
I would like to see a spiritual successor to Shadows of the Empire, a game I have a special place in my heart for. I don't think it's a particularly great game, but I want to see a new Star Wars game with a diverse set of levels that have you shooting at Storm Troopers and exploring levels in the third person, flying in space and on ice planets, riding speeder bikes, and listening to John Williams' excellent score.
What about you?

X-Wing. The original (NOT the X vs T and X-Wing Alliance crap). Also, Tie-Fighter.
Oh, and Dark Forces (and Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II) are both pretty awesome.
yes to battlefront but other than that a new Bounty Hunter game would be good too which 1313 seemed to be. so I hope that 1313 gets picked up by someone.
I would definitely like to see a reboot of Republic Commando. It was such a great game and it would be amazing to see it be updated with new graphics and mechanics.
Rogue Squadron...? Aynone?
x wing and tie fighter
Battlefront and Republic Commando, fo' sho'!
My choice would be a reboot of the Dark Forces series. My second choice would be Knights of the Old Republic for a reboot, but I'd like to see it done by a different studio than Bioware.
Knights of the old republic needs to happen... I want an HD remake of the two for my ps3 or PS4
I would have to go with Shadows of the Empire as well. This game remains one of my favorite N64 games.
KOTOR, Dark Forces, Battlefront, Rogue Squadron, and Empire At War. What Star Wars really needs is new franchises on multiple platforms like 1313 and The Force Unleashed.
Also, I really liked the Rebel Assault series.
Reiner, Rebel Assault 2 Millenium Falcon escape level stress test.
The Super saga was tough as heck but I think the three prequels done in similar fashion would be fun. Otherwise a third Knights of the Old Republic. I want to know what happened to Reven.
Knights of the Old Republic HD Collection and a direct sequel. Jedi Knight Series. Masters of Teräs Käsi remake done by Netherrealm!! Jedi Power Battles & of course Battlefront.
'Shadows of the Empire' is still the best Starwars Game I played. It should get a sequel on the wiiU.
A new current-gen Shadows of the Empire game would be freaking sweet. I loved the old N64 game back in the day but going back and playing it now, I can see where it could have used a lot of improvement (no map system, no melee attacks, etc.).
I also wouldn't mind seeing a new entry in the Jedi Outcast/Jedi Academy series; getting to create my own jedi/sith characters and battle it out in crazy multiplayer lightsaber deathmatches provided hours upon hours of entertainment (and continue to do so thanks to this weekend's Steam sale). One look at all the superb mods that were created for Jedi Academy is proof enough that the series still has a ton of potential.
Republic Commando, Rogue Squadron or a new Jedi Knight game.
Jedi Outcast. I loved that game.
Pod Racer and Shadows of the Empire are both criminally underrated Star Wars games.
Obvious Battlefront aside, Rogue Squadron and the Jedi Knight series needs to come back. An HD remake of Shadows of the Empire would be nice, but I dunno how it'd work.
The PC versions dark forces jedi knight, Republic Commando and knights of the old replublic/ xwing/tie fighter have been almost the only real starwars games anyway.
Shadows of the Empire sucked almost as much balls as the n64 horrible in every way possible I spit on it and wondered why I bought the n64 crap at launch when IT only had 2 games then they shoved this crap starwars game in my face a few weeks later, then that turok garbage showed up a few months later and went back to playing jedi knight and quake online and or my saturn or playstation.
