Star Wars: Yoda Stories (1999)
Released for the Game Boy Color in 1999, Star Wars: Yoda Stories stands out as one of the worst games ever made for Nintendo’s beloved handheld. The adventure game stars Luke Skywalker and has the player going on one boring fetch quest after another. Making things worse, the title was a bad port of the already bad PC version, and it controlled terribly.
Star Wars: Demolition (2000)
For newer gamers it’s probably hard to imagine just how popular vehicular combat games were. It seemed like every brand (even the WWE) was ripping off Twisted Metal’s formula, and that includes Star Wars. In theory, Demolition offers up a pretty cool idea. After all, Star Wars has plenty of cool vehicles and weaponry for players to use. Sadly, the gameplay was unbalanced, and the novelty wore off rather quickly.
Star Wars: Super Bombad Racing (2001)
The podracing scenes in The Phantom Menace led to some surprisingly decent racing games being made. While Star Wars Episode I: Racer and Star Wars: Racer Revenge were enjoyable arcade racing games, LucasArts’ attempt at a kart racer was less successful. Called Star Wars: Super Bombad Racing, this was a straightforward Mario Kart clone that lacked any of the polish or charm that Nintendo’s offering had in spades.
