Since then, the game was able to celebrate the releases for The Rise of Skywalker with a new planet and Reinforcements which are “Gunner” and “Sky” and for the Resistance, are the “Sith Trooper” and the new “Jet Trooper”.
Moving on to number 7, we have Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga. This is an action-adventure game that has been based on the Lego Star Wars line of toys.

This is surely one of the Best Star Wars games ever as it won the Best MMO in the 2011 Game of the Year Awards.
Now at number 5, and we are halfway through the list, we have Star Wars: Republic Commando. Out of the Star Wars line, this game seems to be more on the tactical side.
