Year released: 2005

Star Wars: Republic Commando brought a unique take on the Clone Wars by focusing heavily on squad-based combat, and lending a more Halo-esque feel to a series that was, at the time, seeking for any way to compete with Bungie's unstoppable force of a franchise. Giving you a first person through the eyes of a clone solider, Republic Commando set the bar for Star Wars console games and perhaps even outstripped the similarly focused Battlefront titles. But, unfortunately, long-awaited sequel will never see a proper follow-up now that LucasArts has taken a turn for the worst. It's a damn shame.
