This game defined Star Wars Games
Battlefront 2 is 3rd person shooter, and my favorite at that. The campaign takes you through the entire star wars series, all though the perspective of one of the clone soldiers. You can play as Anakin slaughtering the Jedi, and as Darth Vader assaulting Hoth. The missions are an excellent mix of various objectives, and the challenge level is just enough to keep you from slacking off.
The game comes with other modes as well, including "galactic conquest," where you command the fleets of either the CIS, the Clones, the Empire, or the Rebellion, in an attempt to take over the galaxy one system at a time.
The instant action mode allows you to play against AI on any map with customizable settings, or against other players online or in split screen.
Playing as a hero is loads of fun, there's nothing quite as satisfying as slicing through entire armies with a light saber. Unfortunately most of the non-jedi hero's are pretty useless, but that bit is just my opinion.
The combat is wild and fast paced, despite the fact that players can take many hits before going down.
If you own a playstation 2, you should already own this game. If not, pick it up!
