Stars Wars is a rich, massive, ever-expanding universe, and that makes it the perfect fodder for video games. When you think Star Wars games, you think of the Star Wars games that made you feel like a true Jedi (or Sith in some cases back then). From Knights of the Old Republic (one of the most beloved Star Wars games ever made) to Shadows of the Empire, the library of good Star Wars games is a vast one, filled with everything from first-person-shooter to racing games to third person games based on vehicle combat in the far reaches of space. Star Wars and games mesh well together, mostly.
But (and SAY IT WITH ME PEOPLE, there is always a but)…
Just because there have been some spectacular games based on the beloved franchise does not mean the Star Wars brand always lends itself perfectly to gaming. The list you see above, for example, made by the fine folks over at IGN, would like to take a moment of your time to focus on some of the less than stellar (it’s a great word to use there because it is of and about the very subject on which we speak right now, though I digress) games from the series.

In simpler terms for you nerf herders (my cousin’s dying wish was that I never use that term again when I write about Star Wars because it is so widely over-used by hackneyed media and I just failed him), this list is about the Star Wars games that suck. Like PREQUELS level of suck.
Yup, there you go. Plain and simple. A list of shitty Star Wars games. Looking at you, Battlefront. I am still bitter. Bitterfront DLC, perhaps, to appease my massive ego?
