Star Wars Retrospective - Episode II 30 Mar, 2008, 18:56 / 5 comments

The GameTrailers Star Wars gaming retrospective has now unleashed its Second Episode, which you can watch here.

It follow the early days of the NES, the Super Star Wars series, the other arcade games... then for some bizarre reason jumps right ahead to GBA and then Lego Star Wars II. Presumably this is all to cover just games directly based on the original trilogy. That doesn't explain Apprentice of the Force or Flight of the Falcon however.

Have you ever seen Darth Vader turn into a giant fat-faced scorpion? A JVC platformer that doesn't mention the Dark Lord of the Sith at all? LucasArts not being mentioned either? You will do... you will do!

    Guess that's why they call it:
    "The games that brought you each original chapter from start to finish." ;-)

    Didn't even notice that. I thought they were going to do the years in order...

    That's exactly what I expected, too - until I read your post here which made me curious.

    Teach me to read things. Bit annoying that the next episode's on the Prequel games rather than the cool PC games.

    Guess they wait with those great titles like KotoR until the final episodes to keep people tuned...
