12 Awesome Star Wars Games That Need New Remakes: Page 8 of 12

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

5. Star Wars Republic Commando (2005)

Republic Commando
The tactical shooting gameplay, with interesting squadmate characters with their own unique abilities, is still fun today.

It seems crazy that we never got a sequel or update for Republic Commando, considering how well the formula worked, and how much fans liked it. Perhaps the squad-based tactical shooter genre started to become less popular, but I think we're more than overdue for a new release focusing on Star Wars troopers.

Republic Commando
The characters all have their own interesting backstories, which is the highlight of the game.

A story showing us the other side of The First Order, the 'bad guys' of The Force Awakens, using the same kind of squad-command gameplay, would offer players a great look at a different story. Republic Commando's class-based puzzle solving and combat, with its inside-the-helmet HUD view in first-person, was a unique Star Wars experience that should absolutely be updated and released again.

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 :)
