The Star Wars universe is ripe with infinite possibilities, and Bioware took full advantage in developing one of the Xbox's most memorable titles and probably the best Star Wars game ever. Set 4,000 years before the Vader era, the RPG's storyline presents a much-needed jolt of originality while paying strong tribute to the endless battle of Jedi and Sith. Way, way, way better than Hayden Christensen and co. did, that's for sure.

KOTOR is based on the third-edition Dungeons & Dragons role-playing system. If you already knew that, you're even a bigger geek than we are.
