12 Awesome Star Wars Games That Need New Remakes: Page 3 of 12

These older Star Wars games could use a new, fresh look!

10. Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds (2001)

Galactic Battlegrounds
You could command large groups of troops for the different factions at war in the game.

Star Wars has experimented with RTS-style games several different times throughout its game history, finally striking gold and having success with the Empire at War series of games. While Empire at War would still be perfectly fun to play if you were to boot it up on your PC right now, there was another game which gets less attention, but would be really fun if it got an HD update: Galactic Battlegrounds.

The original Galactic Battlegrounds was essentially Age of Empires with a Star Wars skin placed over it, and was built using Age of Empire's Genie engine. It would be great to see them just do that again, this time using the updated Age of Empires engine, or even something like the engine for the upcoming Civilization 6.

Galactic Battlegrounds
When I say the game is basically Age of Empires: Star Wars, I mean it.

While I would enjoy just another clone copy of Age of Empires with Star Wars settings and units, it would be even more interesting to include some galactic politics and backstabbing similar to what you see in the Mount and Blade series, or a decision-focused narrative like the Telltale Games choose-your-own-adventure games.

Whoa, I never thought I'd see a list like this with Yoda Stories in it! And I'm 100% with you on this. As trash-talked as the game is (from what I've seen), I actually played it to death! I thoroughly enjoyed the procedurally generated levels and goals and still think that it's a great rougelike-thingy. Would LOVE to see a remake of this, or even a console port. Also agree on Jedi Power Battles being a fun co-op game, and Republic Commando as well as the Jedi Knight series totally deserves more entries. Heads-up to anyone reading this who enjoy action-packed beat 'em ups: Revenge of the Sith on Game Boy Advance and DS is actually an amazing game of the genre that features character progression, path choosing and even offers co-op! Don't miss out on this one - trust me you should :)
