14 Classic Star Wars Games That Deserve an HD Remake

EB's Matt Heywood writes, "Star Wars games have been coming out since the release of the first trilogy, but they really didn’t start to shine until they moved from the arcades into the homes of gamers that owned consoles that could play them. The 90′s in particular ushered in a plethora of amazing Star Wars video games for both PCs and home consoles that led to even more great Star Wars gaming experiences in the early 2000′s. Unfortunately, with the advances in technology that have taken place since these games were first released, none of them really hold up visually, so it’s hard to go back and play them after experiencing what a pimped out PC rig, or even the Xbox One and PS4 can offer gamers in terms of visuals, sound, and gameplay.

Luckily for us we live on the Internet where anything is possible, so considering all of the recent HD remastered games that have been released lately (FFX, FFX-2, Fable, TLOU GOW, etc), it sounded like a great idea to list a handful of classic Star Wars games that deserve to have an HD remake too. There are fourteen Star Wars games in particular that really stand out as amazing gameplay experiences, at least for their time, that would surely get Star Wars geeks in a tizzy if they ever released with modern game design techniques." (Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II, PC, Star Wars Galactic Battleground, Star Wars: Dark Forces, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II, Super Star Wars, Xbox, X-Wing)

Give me 'Tie Fighter' & 'Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2' and I'd die a very happy man!

KOTOR 1 and 2, in hd and finishing the second = instabuy!!

Would certainly be interesting to see how that would pan out for KOTOR 2. Even the DLC for KOTOR 1 would be a nice treat since Original Xbox Live is now down.

LOVED empire at war, was such a great RTS. The super star wars games on SNES were great too but they were so tough.

Some devs/publishers need to make this happen.

Empire at war was an awesome game.

Especially if you edit the settings file to allow much bigger space battles.

Damn. Loved those Snes games. An HD trilogy pack would be awesome

Even though I think Star Wars is gash, I've still played and loved most of these. At least there is Battlefront in the works. Please don't fudge it up DICE.

Just a new single player New Republic would be cool tbh.
