Dark Forces was excellent, Super Star Wars was manic, Rogue Leader on the Cube was just "wow" at times... there are a fair few choices. But I'd have to plump for the original vector arcade machine, there is just something about it that screams "true experience" even though today, most people will have to play with legs splayed either side of the sit-down version!

Easy - Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy. Fun, full of laughs and no mention of Dash Rendar - Its like he doesn't exist!

Rebel Assualt on the PC - It was the first FMV style games I played and it blew my socks off at the time.

The Empire Strikes Back on the 2600. Still masses of fun.

Dark Forces 2 (PC)for me. Great atmosphere, huge open levels and a good (maybe better than the original game) add on pack.

Has to be the original arcade game, the sit down version. Loved the game as a kid, great sound effects and gameplay. Minimal wire frame graphics but they worked really well

Despite the lacklustre reviews, I liked Jedi Power Battles on Dreamcast a lot.

Hands down it has to be the Super Star Wars Trilogy for me. All 3 are excellent run and gun/platform games which depicted the movies brilliantly while having incredible (at the time) mode 7 sequences for all the major space battles. Add the intense difficulty, an autentic soundtrack and wonderful graphics to the mix and you have my favourite representation of the Star Wars lisence ever

My favourite Star Wars game is Rogue Squadron.....fantastic gameplay, graphics and atmosphere that finally made me feel like I was a part of that galaxy far, far away. I loved Episode One: Racer as well, in my opinion it was as good as F-Zero X.
