Star Wars Battlefront
Star Wars Battlefront
Released n/a
Star Wars: Battlefront encompasses battles between four main factions from both the original and prequel trilogies: the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems of the prequel era, and the Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire of the classic trilogy. However, factions can only play their historical adversary; there can't be any Rebel vs. Separatist fights, for example. Within each faction, five different classes of characters become available. Four of the classes are fairly similar for each faction: a basic infantry soldier (a Super battle droid for the CIS), a heavy weapons soldier, a pilot, and a sniper. Each faction also has a special fifth unit with unique abilities and weapons.

In the game, both factions have a set amount of reinforcements (extra units or respawns), and the team to use all of them first, loses. A faction can also win by possessing all of the command posts. After all command posts are captured the player must wait 20 seconds until victory, sometimes there is a lone enemy unit that will seize a command post and the timer will reset.

A command post as seen in Star Wars: Battlefront. It also depicts a unit on the CIS.

In Star Wars: Battlefront Jedi heroes are featured: Luke Skywalker for the Rebellion, Darth Vader for the Empire, Mace Windu for the Republic, and Count Dooku for the CIS. Jedi characters appear but are not playable; they may only be allies in battle under certain circumstances, although Heroes can be 'turned on' in the options menu on the main menu. Certain modded maps or files available for download can result in the heroes being playable, but LucasArts does not support these files. Jedi cannot be killed with direct fire, but can be shot off of ledges or crushed by vehicles. When the reinforcement meter reaches 10% of its original number the Jedi hero dies and does not return.

There are other NPCs : Tusken Raiders in the Dune Sea of Tatooine, and Jawas on the streets of Mos Eisley. Ewoks aid the Rebellion on the forest moon of Endor, Gungans aid the Republic on the Naboo Plains, Geonosians help the CIS in battle at Geonosis, and Wookiees aid the Rebellion and Republic on Kashyyyk and the Royal Guards on Theed (Clone Wars Campaign only). As with the Jedi, modded files can be downloaded and result in the NPCs to be playable, but again, LucasArts does not support these files, and it takes a person knowledgeable in basic programming to use these, let alone create them with the Battlefront editor. Other planets include Bespin, Geonosis, Hoth, Endor, Rhen Var, Yavin, and Kamino,.
