In a more modern time, I LOVE SW Battlefront. I swear Haruhi wished for me to find happiness when I got that game. Just give me a standard Battledroid and I was destroying the scourge of the Republic for two games and thousands of hours. Knights of the Old republic one and two are to this day the only RPGs I ever finished and really fueled a love for the Old Republic era of Star Wars.
Has anyone played any of the Star Wars table top RPG games? I luckily got to be in a campaign that I worked my way up to a Jedi Sentinal and was able to be a self righteous prick that destroyed the Sith because of a religous fever. Be afraid of the spanish Inquisition when they have Lightsabers and the force LOL!!!
In Battlefront, I was also usually on the side of the Confederacy of Independent Systems as a Sniper droid. I think the only time I usually go with the Republic was on Kashyyyk, I found a place on the beach where I could lay on my stomach by an ammo droid and health droid and snipe incoming enemies; makes me a small target but usually instant kill because it'd be a headshot.
I've never played the tabletop RPG's but I've wanted to. Some of the Star Wars books like Tales from the New Republic used scenarios and characters from the table top games like Inquisitor Treymane (really cool villain character).
