Star Wars: Republic Commando is neat, in a retro sort of way
I bought it not too long ago and just got around to trying it for the first time. If you like FPS from that time period (mid-2000s) I imagine it might be an unexpected treat.
Be warned that there is a bumpmapping issue; it wouldn't run on my W7 PC maxed so I had to pull out my trusty old XP lappy to get every setting to work.

Its definitely one of the best SW games, probably the best "new trilogy" game around.- Tom De Roeck.
"Quantacat's name is still recognised even if he watches on with detached eyes like Peter Molyneux over a cube in 3D space, staring at it with tears in his eyes, softly whispering... Someday they'll get it."

"I wrinkled my nose at QC being a mod."
"At least he has some personality."

I didn't like it very much. I thought it was really cool when I first played the demo way back when, but I think it's not as good a game as I thought it was before, or it didn't age well (or both).

I still think Republic Commando had one of the best approaches to "squad tactics". Really felt like I was ordering around elite commandos and the like, without needing me to switch to "commander mode"
Also, the novels are some of the best EU books out there. Even if the author (Karen Traviss) has no concept of scope and is batshit insane. Really did a great job of portraying The Clone Wars from the perspective of an actual Clone, and it turned Order 66 into a ridiculously terrifying and horrific event, rather than just "ha ha, little orphan annie just killed the kids who managed to be even more annoying than Jake Lloyd"

That intro is so amazing.
The whole game has great style.

I like that game too! Last time I checked there were still a few people playing the multiplayer too, which was good for a few more minutes of fun once I beat the single player.Support for my all-pepperjack-cheese food bank charity drive has been lukewarm at best.

And I wouldn't be surprised if that was partially in preparation for the star wars franchise to be shopped around (this happened in 2009 or so, the buyout was announced in 2012)

It's a great game. SPOILER ALERT: Shame about Sev though. Especially that we'll never get a sequel.

Google (well, Wikipedia) says it generally scored around 8.2/10, and Imperial Commando was planned and had concept art before RepCom was even released, but it was cancelled for unknown reasons.

Meh... I wasn't that impressed. I had some fun in the 4 or 5 hours to finish it. The gameplay was very fluid. But Stormtroopers behaving like badass-SWAT-Dudes just seemed odd ;)

These guys aren't regular soldiers - they are the badass SWAT dudes. Personally trained by Mandalorian warriors, genetically adjusted to be superior to the others, raised from birth to be the Republic's elite. No normal Stormtrooper could do the things Delta Squad do.
