Obviously has to be the original vector graphics arcade one. I remember thinking this was truly awesome first time I played it. It had a big chunky space-ship style controller, and it actually spoke real understandable words to you, not only that it actually had COLOUR vector graphics… truly amazing!

Defo has to be the original arcade games. Most people I knew played the easy mode where as I always jumped in and headed straight for the hard mode. It usually meant I ended up with quite a crowd around me back when it was first released.

One thing to note was that I could hardly find an arcade at the time with Empire in it but Jedi was everywhere when it came out.

For me it's gotta be Super Star Wars on the SNES. Took a while to get into but once you start playing as Han Solo and Chewie you start to get the Star Wars vibe going.

Without doubt for me it's Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II. Awesome both single and multilplayer (on msn gaming zone). It had a wonderful community and amazing user made maps.

The original Atari vector game. Unusually, I prefer the stand up cab as you can duck or jump over the obstacles. It doesn't change the game at all, but I can't help myself from doing it and it just feels right to dodge fireballs and the like.

Lego StarWars for the 360. Absolute genius. The trilogy of games for the SNES were good as well. "i am your father!"

Good shout, really liked that on the Speccy, great little game. Always made me laugh the terrible 'prepare to launch' speech on the Speccy

My favourite Star Wars game is telling people that I have never ever seen ANY of the star wars movies, then watching them recoil in horror as if I have just grown a second head.
