8. Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader

One of GameCube’s most memorable launch titles, Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader was a show-piece for the system’s graphical capabilities. The system recreated the look and feel of the original Star Wars trilogy, and the gameplay provided fans of the franchise with one of the best Star Wars titles ever. Adding to the authenticity, LucasArts brought in Denis Lawson, the actor who portrayed Wedge Antilles in the original trilogy, to record new lines exclusively for the game.

Rogue Leader was considered to be a step-up from its N64 predecessor X-Wing Rogue Squadron, but LucasArts struggled to find success a third time. The game was followed up by a sub-par sequel, which attempted to add levels that took place outside of the game’s vehicles. While it was certainly an ambitious concept, the title couldn’t live up to high bar set for the series, and the X-Wing franchise has yet to see another game.
