I'm rather surprised I can't find a thread about this already. Interesting.
I am rather behind the times, and got me a Playstation 2 for Christmas. Along with the Playstation, I got Battlefront II.
Circuit City had a killer sale on their cheaper games about two weeks ago, so I picked up Battlefront and ROTS as well. (I'd previously played a bit of each on my brother in law's PS2.)
I already have Bounty Hunter, Clone Wars, and SW Lego for my GameCube, and I'll want to get Lego II for the GameCube simply for the ability to port characters from the first game. I had Jedi Outcast on the GameCube, which was stolen. As it's hella expensive to replace, and the game didn't impress me much, I'm passing on that.
Also, I have Demolition, Jedi Power Battles, and Masters of Teras Kasi from my old-school PS1.
So... what Star Wars games must I get for my PS2, and what should I avoid?
The ones I've found listings for so far are:
Super Bombad Racing: This one looks like it could be either fun or stupid. It's OOP, and a bit expensive, so I definitely want opinions on it before plopping down a lot of dough for a used game.
Starfighter & Jedi Starfighter: I thought these were two different covers for the same game, until it dawned on me that one was a Naboo N-1 and one was an AOTC Jedi Starfighter. I love the simulation-types, and play the hell out of my Rogue Squadron games on the Cube. (I didn't mention them previously, as they're not available on the PS2.) If they're even close, I'm sure these are both vital.
Racer's Revenge: This looks like it's a bit pricey, but the reviews say it's a sequel to Racer, which I thought kicked a**, and some reviews say it tops it. If that's true, another must-have.
The Phantom Menace: Technically for the PS1, but, hey, it's backwards compatible. I always thought the graphics I saw from this looked like it'd be a cool game, but has anyone played it?
Any others I'm missing?
I'm correct in saying that Obi-Wan, KOTOR, KOTOR II, and Republic Commando are XBox exclusives, right?
Also, any definitive word on whether Force Unleashed will be on the PS2? I've heard both yes and no, and it's a tad confusing.
