1. Star Wars: Squadrons

Before they delivered the remake of Dead Space, EA Motive gave fans the definitive experience of what it would feel like piloting an X-Wing or a Tie Fighter in 2020’s Star Wars: Squadrons

In our review of the game, we wrote: “If you have been waiting for a Star Wars game that gives you that sensation of piloting an X-Wing or Tie Fighter, Star Wars: Squadrons is definitely the game you have been waiting for.”

Star Wars: Squadrons is on sale for only $5.99 in the Microsoft Store, or you can play it for free as part of your subscription to EA Play. 

2. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is the definitive RPG for Star Wars fans who want to be paragons of the light by being Jedi or just cave into hate and become a Sith Lord.

We are currently playing through it for our review, but critics have given this game glowing reviews. Jedi: Survivor is available on all platforms right now.
