On November 15, 2019, EA will release Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order for the Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Set in the relatively undefined time period between Episode III and Episode IV, the game will follow the exploits of a young Padawan who escaped Order 66 and is currently trying to survive Emperor Palpatine's Jedi Purge. It seems, from all initial impressions, to be an Uncharted-esque action game, which places its cinematic, narrative action front-and-center.

Star Wars video games have been around for nearly as long as the movie franchise; Return of the Jedi and the first Star Wars arcade game were both released in 1983. And since then, there have been scores of games released under the Star Wars banner. Some are straight adaptations of the films. But many more are ancillary tales, and occur before, after, or concurrently with the movies' events.

Here are the 10 best Star Wars video games so far. Time will tell if Jedi: Fallen Order makes the grade and carries on a proud tradition.
