Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. In which game were you a pilot for the evil Empire?

Answer: TIE Fighter (1994)

"TIE Fighter" was released one year after "Star Wars: X-Wing," and used the same game engine. It was novel at the time for letting players play as the "bad guys." Players did fly against the Rebel Alliance, but also fought pirates, help settle regional disputes, and dealt with traitors within the Empire. The game was re-released in 1998 as a Collector's CD-ROM, with updated graphics.
2. In which game did you fly starfighters as Luke Skywalker between the events of "A New Hope" and "The Empire Strikes Back"?

Answer: Rogue Squadron (1998)

"Rogue Squadron" was released for the N64 and PC. The first "Star Wars" game to be released on the N64 was "Shadows of the Empire." Most of that game's ten missions had players controlling the smuggler Dash Rendar on foot, but the opening level let players fly an airspeeder during the Battle of Hoth. The opening level was so good that it inspired the second N64 game, "Rogue Squadron."

"Rogue Squadron" was released one year before "The Phantom Menace," so they were able to secretly include the Naboo Starfighter as a flyable ship. After the movie was released, the cheat code to unlock the Naboo Starfighter was revealed.
3. Which of the following was a role-playing game developed by Bioware, letting you experience an epic story as a Jedi?

Answer: Knights of the Old Republic (2003)

"Knights of the Old Republic" was originally released on Xbox and PC, and was re-released on modern consoles and mobile devices. Bioware was known for releasing high-quality role-playing games, such as "Baldur's Gate." They were asked to make a game in the "Star Wars" universe and given the option of setting their game during the prequel era, which was being developed around the same time, or thousands of years before the "Star Wars" movies. Bioware chose to set their game 3000 years before the movies because they felt they could have more freedom with their story. Bioware had so much fun making a science fiction RPG that they made their own universe to have even more freedom, which led to the "Mass Effect" series.
4. In which first-person shooter game did you command an elite team of clone troopers?

Answer: Republic Commando (2005)

"Republic Commando" was released on the Xbox and PC. Most games set in the "Star Wars" universe focused on the power fantasy of playing as a Jedi. "Republic Commando" broke away from that trend, focusing on the special forces of the Republic's army. "Republic Commando" was darker and grittier than most "Star Wars" material, as well as humanizing the clones of the prequel era.

The game ended on a cliffhanger that was never resolved.
5. In which real-time strategy game could you command forces in both space battles and ground battles, and had an expansion focusing on the criminal empire of Typer Zann?

Answer: Empire at War (2006)

"Empire at War" was a real-time strategy game for PC that spanned the entire galaxy, set during the original trilogy. Players would build bases and space stations at planets, and build up their armies and fleets, which could be moved between planets. Whenever a fleet traveled to another planet, a space battle would start, in which players could control individual capital ships and starfighter squadrons.

When land forces were moved to a planet, players could take control of the ground battle. The expansion, "Forces of Corruption," added a third criminal faction that could fight both the Rebel Alliance and the Empire.
6. In which first-person shooter game did you play as the mercenary Kyle Katarn as he learned the ways of the Jedi?

Answer: Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II (1997)

"Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II" was released on PC only one year after "Dark Forces" (strangely, the "Dark Forces" part was the subtitle). The first game was a "Doom clone," with Kyle Katarn being a simple mercenary working for the Rebel Alliance. The second game gave the player Jedi talents and a lightsaber, which were much more powerful than the standard blasters.

The series would continue as "Jedi Knight," dropping the "Dark Forces" title.
7. Which game was a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (like "World of Warcraft") set in the "Star Wars" universe?

Answer: Galaxies (2003)

"Galaxies" was released on PC a year before "World of Warcraft." It had many controversial updates, especially around player progression and how to earn the ability to play as a Jedi. The servers for "Star Wars: Galaxies" were shut down in 2011, just before the release of "Star Wars: The Old Republic," the next "Star Wars" MMORPG.
8. Which shooter game let you participate in massive battles as a regular soldier from both the prequel and original eras?

Answer: Battlefront (2004)

"Battlefront" was released on Xbox and PC. It was a "Star Wars" reimagining of "Battlefield 1942." In "Battlefront," players could join massive battles as regular soldiers, and use a large variety of weapons and vehicles seen in the movies. At the time of its release, an impressive 32 players could play in a single game at once.
9. In which action game did you play as Galen Marek, Darth Vader's secret apprentice?

Answer: The Force Unleashed (2008)

"The Force Unleashed" was LucasArts' second multi-media project (the first being "Shadows of the Empire"). Apart from the game, there were novels, comics, role-playing game components, action figures, and a Lego set. The player character in the game, Galen Merek, had the codename "Starkiller," which was Luke Skywalker's last name in early drafts of the first "Star Wars" movie.

The game was released on every platform available at the time (with some variations due to hardware limitations): PC, Mac, Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, Wii, and mobile devices.
10. In which adventure game did you play through the prequel trilogy events with humour and creativity?

Answer: Lego Star Wars (2005)

"Lego Star Wars" was released on PC, Mac, Xbox, PS2, and GameCube. There was also a version made for the Game Boy Advance and mobile devices. It followed the broad strokes of the prequel trilogy, but solutions to puzzles and obstacles often involved building or reconfiguring the architecture, all of which was made of Lego pieces.

The story could be played as a cooperative experience with a friend, and players could unlock different characters which could be used in subsequent playthroughs.
