    "All time" hasn't finished yet, but that hasn't stopped the Australian PCAuthority website from listing the 10 best Star Wars games ...


    Get fired up for The Last Jedi by revisiting these gems.
    --------------------------------------------------------
    Dozens upon dozens ofStar Warsgames have been released since
    the early '80s, and the flood has never really subsided over
    the years. Pretty much every year has seen another game or two
    appear to reignite our love of lightsabers.

    That's not always a great thing. Licensed games have a
    reputation for being rubbish more often than not, andStar Wars
    is as guilty as any other franchise for putting out tosh here
    and there:Kinect Star Wars, anyone? How aboutMasters of Teras
    Kasi? It happens. In fact, it's happened quite a bit.

    Thankfully, there's a flipside to that: the games that remind
    us why we loveStar Warsso much. The games that let us feel as
    though we're a part of that vast, wonderful universe. And the
    games that fill us with the same kind of childhood wonder as
    the classic films themselves. There's a fair number of them,
    but we've argued about them all to come up with a list of the
    10 very best.

    WithStar Warsfever renewed agan forThe Last Jedi, now's the
    perfect time to loop back on some of these. Enjoy!

    this list lacks:

    X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter (Balance of Power expansion)

    X-Wing Alliance

    Rebellion

    Jedi Outcast, Jedi Academy

    and

    The Gungan Frontier

    Nope, "Pit Droids" is the best ... I even managed to finish that one. :-)
