any one to rate this game lower then a 5 is just plain stupid. it had a solid story with the ordeal with rosh was very unexcpected i knew he was gona turn but not how it eventualy turned out in the end very supriseing for me. gameplay side not many star wars games let you be a jedi and at the same time use a blaster in first person then switch to your light saber in a pinch. how ever there are times wen you can get in a fight with a dark jedi and kill him in litrily one hit or he can take the tinyist bit of damage and kill you just like that this isent a bad thing however it ceeps you on ur toes and catuious even when you think its gona be easy.another minor prblem was i wished i could use more force powers i mean core light side and dark side are fine but there wasent enough tricks and i felt even wen i had full everything that i was still a qaurter of what it should be. it is still a must get for any starwars fan it lets you see some of the stuff that you dont get in the movies.

This game is the best Star Wars game I've ever played to date. This was the game to have many years ago and they need to make another one. The single player was ok with a solid story, but this game was made 4 online play and focused more on lightsaber combat. There were many combos to learn that no one told you about like the 3 hit combo 4 single sabers and the jackhammer 4 the other two. If you got good enough ppl would acctually get "bounty hunters" to go after you. I remember when ppl would get into a FFA and challenge each other to 1 on 1 duels and have 2 or more on at the same time and if you got bored a noob would join and everyone would gang up on him using him as a piniata with grip. Graphics 10/10 (back then they were top notch) gameplay10/10 Story 7/10 replay 10/10(multiplayer) singleplayer replay 5/10Lucasarts needs to make a brand new version 4 the 360 ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This was a excellent game, great combat and solid story line. But there was a few large problems, the biggest of which was when i stopped playing the game for a day or two i completely lost interest. I had no desire to play the game even though i had had a great time playing it. The second of which is the inconsistencies of the dark jedi, either you could fight one dark jedi and beat him easily, or lose horribly. Also i was slightly annoyed that the races were gender exclusive, you could only be a female Twi'Lek, or a male Rodian and so on.

However this game had excellent controls and incredible game play, i have never played a game like it. This game is absolutely worth getting.
