What would your ideal Star Wars game look like? The epic space-opera franchise has given us a mountain of amazing games already, from whiteknuckle podracing simulators to action-packed first-person shooters, and most recently, the incredible Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

And after Cal Kestis’ story got us living and breathing Star Wars all over again, we couldn’t help but think of a ton of hypothetical Star Wars games we’d love to play. Now who do we write to in order to make these happen?

And after Cal Kestis’ story got us living and breathing Star Wars all over again, we couldn’t help but think of a ton of hypothetical Star Wars games we’d love to play. Now who do we write to in order to make these happen?

1. An open-world Star Wars adventure

We’re thinking something along the lines of Skyrim, maybe set on a stunning planet like Naboo (or heck, give us spaceships and fast travel so we can go wherever we want). We could wander from place to place helping out (or slaying) the locals, clearing out monster dens, exploring the ruined cities of lost civilisations, and building up a reputation for stealing Thala-siren cheese wheels.

2. A choice-based Star Wars story

An epic Star Wars story full of twists and turns, plenty of factions (good and bad) to join, and a hefty sprinkling of gut-wrenching decisions… what more could we possibly ask for? This could be a Telltale-style adventure, in which we could either be a good Jedi seeking to restore peace and harmony to the galaxy, or an utterly nefarious Sith Lord in the making. Just think of all the important political decisions you could ruin if you were on a Dark Side playthrough…

3. A new Star Wars racing game

Whatever your opinion of The Phantom Menace, you’ve got to admit that podracing looks like a total blast. And since we’ve not had a brand new podracing game since 2002, it’s definitely time for a new one. One talented fan has been putting together an unofficial remake of Star Wars Episode I: Racer in Unreal Engine 4, so you can get an idea of just how awesome a new podracing game could look on a modern console.

4. A Star Wars battle royale

Seriously, the Star Wars universe is crying out for an amazing battle royale. Pick your favourite Star Wars planet, drop from a spaceship and engage in a brutal battle for survival using whatever weapons you can find. We could deploy droids to scavenge supplies and trap enemies, or maybe we could use our Force powers to pull off devastating ultimates and temporarily stop incoming blaster bolts in their tracks. Can someone make this happen, please?

5. A Star Wars rhythm game


Beat Saber is the closest thing we’ve had so far to a Star Wars and Guitar Hero crossover, and there’s a lot to be said for musical lightsaber slashing. But why stick to lightsaber beats or lead, bass, and rhythm guitar when you could learn to play the Mos Eisley cantina band’s instruments instead? This is the first track we’re learning…
