5 Star Wars Games That Need to Make a Comeback With The Last Jedi

Star Wars: Republic Commando

By: LucasArts/Magellan Interactive

Star Wars: Republic Commando was an awesome first-person shooter that went above and beyond the typical FPS model. First of all, you played as an elite squad of Clone Troopers called Delta Squad. You played as the leader, codenamed Boss, and you command a squad of specialists. Each squad member is good at specific things, and your role, aside from shoot the bad guys, is to command your squad to tactfully take out your enemies.

First-person shooters today can't even achieve what this game did in 2005. It really did feel like a squad, as opposed to a one-man-army. Today, developers seem to take the shortcut of making a squad made of other players. While multiplayer may be a plus for some, others can immediately see the problems that would arise and would prefer an NPC squad with good AI that you have total control over.

Republic Commando takes place during the climax of the film Attack of the Clones, making the clones look much more fleshed out than they do in the movie series. It's a story, or at least a playstyle, that Star Wars and video game fans alike have been clamouring for from the FPS sector.
