The Best Retro Star Wars Games to Ever Hit This Galaxy!
Super Star Wars Trilogy (SNES 1992-1994)
Ok, so I know this isn’t an individual game, per say, but the ‘Super’ games were not only defining games in the Star Wars game timeline, but they can be considered some of the best platform games (or run and gun, as they were called) for the Super Nintendo in general. Super Star Wars, Super Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, and Super Star Wars: Return of the Jedi loosely follows the storylines of their movie counterparts, with some liberties taken here and there. Yeah, so maybe the Saarlac didn’t roam throughout A New Hope like a relentless version of the Sandworm from Beetlejuice, but the game was pretty awesome, so let’s let it slide. The first game didn’t even have a save or password option (Empire and Jedi did, though they remained as difficult as the first game, if not more so) which only made you all that more hardcore when you actually completed it, especially when you consider its high level of difficulty. They remain some of the best Star Wars games to date, not to mention they are a shining example of what movie based games should be. Take note, developers.
