1. Star Wars- Shadows Of The Empire: Why Shadow Of The Empire? This game has epic written all over it. Not only was this one of the great games of N64, but it had a nice storyline behind it. You played as Dash Render a mercenary who aids Luke to save Princess Leia.
2. Jedi Knight II Jedi Outcast: Probably every Star Wars fan favorite game when it comes to Jedi's. Jedi Outcast not only had amazing lightsaber battles, it nearly perfected it. A wonderful story about a man's redemption back into the light. Also Billy Dee Williams returns in this. Great addition to what happens after Return Of The Jedi.
3. Super Star Wars Trilogy: If you had a Super Nintendo and didn't play Super Star Wars, then we have no comment for you. This game was a nice action side scroller that not only tested the limits of the SNES, but showed it's flight battles were awesome. Don't believe us play the Death Star stage.
4. Star Wars - Battlefront II: Battlefront II was addictive. This game not only had you controlling the Stormtroppers, using vehicles, but you get to play as various Sith and Jedi as well.
5. Star Wars - Rogue Squadron 2: If Star Wars had a flawless victory this game close to it. Rogue Squadron 2 had one of the most comfortable controls for a Star Wars flight game. The first stage with the attack of the Death Star is still a jaw dropper.
6. Star Wars - Knights Of The Old Republic: Star Wars and RPG? Yeah it worked in ways we couldn't even imagine. The players were able to create their own character. Taking them onto a journey, where they might join either the Jedi Or Sith based on their decisions was enough to make any Star Wars fan jizz.
7. Star Wars - The Force Unleashed: Darth Vader had an secret apprentice? Yup in this official cannon to what happens between episode III and IV. The story was interesting enough, the heart and love was there. The gameplay was so, so but you need to experience just how powerful the force can be.
8. Star Wars Trilogy Arcade: Countless quarters fell at the hands of this Arcade game. We never really got far in this game, because it's very challenging. However the game is one of the most fun Star Wars game we played.
9. Lego Star Wars Trilogy: Star Wars meets Lego's how can you not want to experience this? This game was funny, cute and still capture the heart of Star Wars.
10. Star Wars Podracer: The N64 version was so, so. However the Arcade version was badass! Sitting in an actual simulator of a Podracer is something we won't forget.
1. Across The Stars (Love Theme) from Star Wars Episode II Attack Of The Clones
Justin - This is indeed my favorite Star Wars theme. It has such a lovely sound to it. It's really hard to capture an emotion or describe it in music. However I feel John Williams captured Anakin and Padme's love very well. A strong love, but also a sad love.
2. The Force Theme From Star Wars Episode IV
Justin - The theme of the force is a very epic theme. When I listen to it I can feel, like the force is being describe as something mystic. A power that a great people wield, but I also hear sadness in this theme.
3. Battle of the Heroes From Star Wars Episode III Revenge Of The Sith
Justin - This theme is pack with so much emotion and sadness. It's not just a fight theme, but a theme that represents the end of a friendship. I like this theme better than Duel Of Fates which is a wonderful theme.
4. Anakin's Betrayal From Star Wars Episode III Revenge Of The Sith
Justin - If you can't tell by now. My favorite themes are the ones that depict emotions. This is the saddest Star Wars theme to me. Anakin's fall into the darkside was the best scene to me in Episode III.
5. Final Duel From Star Wars Episode VI Return Of The Jedi
Justin - The real theme kicks in at 1:13 and it's very haunting and dark, but I love the foreshadowing of the Force Theme creeping in there.
History - Darth Bane, born under the name of Dessel, was the Sith'ari and the Dark Lord of the Sith responsible for creating the Rule of Two. Born in 1,026 BBY, he was raised as a poor miner on the Outer Rim planet Apatros. After killing a Galactic Republic ensign in a fight in 1,003 BBY, he was in danger of being arrested by the Republic. With the help of his friend Groshik, Dessel escaped off-world to join the Sith Brotherhood of Darkness. Initially serving as a foot soldier in the Gloom Walkers, he was recognized as a Force-sensitive, and taken to the Sith Academy on Korriban.
He studied there for a time, quickly becoming one of the best students before he lost his faith in the dark side of the Force. After a short time, Bane, as he was now known, was able to regain his faith and determination to become the best. However, he would soon lose confidence in the Brotherhood of Darkness, believing its leader, Kaan, to be a coward and a fool. Deserting the order, he studied the holocron of Darth Revan, and, armed with new knowledge, helped destroy the Brotherhood, allowing him to create his own Sith Order. Bane then instituted a Rule of Two, which stated that there could be only two Sith to avoid the infighting that had plagued the Sith for millennia. He styled himself as Darth Bane, and took as his apprentice a Human female, whom he christened Darth Zannah.
In 990 BBY, he sought to learn how to create a holocron, through which he would pass down his knowledge to future Sith Lords. The Sith journeyed to the Deep Core world of Tython to locate the Sith holocron of the ancient Dark Lord Belia Darzu. However, while Bane was on Tython, the Jedi learned of his existence, and sent a group of Jedi to kill him and his apprentice, who had recently arrived to tell him that they were being hunted. Once the Jedi arrived, they confronted the two Sith in Darzu's fortress. Though outnumbered, the Sith were able to defeat the Jedi; however, Bane was grievously injured. Zannah took him to Ambria, where she convinced the healer Caleb to help them. Caleb notified the Jedi Council, only to have Zannah use her powers to drive Caleb's assistant Darovit insane. He then killed Caleb, and was killed by a group of Jedi when they arrived, as they believed him to be the Sith Lord. Thus, Bane's order was kept safe from the Jedi.
A decade later, Bane began to worry that his apprentice was too weak to overthrow him and assume the mantle of Dark Lord of the Sith, as was necessary under the Rule of Two. He began to research the secrets to prolonging his life by transferring his essence to another body, and traveled to Prakith, where he claimed the holocron of Darth Andeddu. However, while Zannah was returning from a mission on Doan, Bane was ambushed by a team hired by Caleb's daughter, Serra, and, grossly outnumbered, he was defeated and captured. Taken to Doan, Bane was imprisoned and interrogated, only to covertly gain his freedom a short time after. Bane was then attacked by Zannah, who sought to become the new Dark Lord, but he escaped and tracked Serra to Ambria with Darth Cognus, an Iktotchi assassin skilled in use of the dark side who Bane planned to take as his apprentice if Zannah proved herself weak and unworthy. After Cognus killed Serra, Bane, determined to test his apprentice for the last time, sent Zannah a message to meet him on Ambria. Following a heated duel, Bane attempted to transfer his essence into Zannah's body. However, her will proved to be too strong and Zannah defeated him, ending the life of the Sith'ari, yet also validating herself as his successor. Nearly a millennium later, Bane's Sith Order would defeat the Jedi and overthrow the Republic.
