12 Awesome Star Wars Games That Need New Remakes: Page 4 of 12

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

9. X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter (1997)

X-Wing TIE Fighter
Stepping into the cockpit of Star Wars's iconic spacecraft was fun, and would be even better with new graphics.

E3 2016 saw an upcoming VR-based X-Wing piloting game as part of EA's strategy for virtual reality gaming, and a remake for X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter was even begun in 2009, so out of everything on this list, I feel like this game is the most likely to actually receive a remake.

The original 1997 release was well-loved for its fast-paced dogfighting in space, which tried to capture that excitement from the films. The games featured high-resolution graphics and detail on the ships, which players could select and customize before each mission. The game let you build up points for successful missions and keep track of your record.

Xwing TIE Fighter
Each fighter has a slightly different layout and style of control you had to learn.

For a remake, you could have that same level of high-definition detail on this generation of hardware, but have it all happen immersively inside your VR headset, stepping into the cockpit of several different fighters, surrounded by the sights and sounds of a space battle, with your hands on a real joystick for a true cinematic flying experience straight out of the movies.

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 :)
