Star Wars video games: A visual history

We recap the last 27 years of video games based on George Lucas's enormously influential Star Wars franchise.

1998



Faction 5's Rogue Squadron (N64, PC) sets a new standard for the space sim on consoles; its plot shows the growing influence of Expanded Universe content with the inclusion of the First Battle of Mon Calamari from the comic Dark Empire. Star Wars also makes its turn-based strategy debut with Rebellion (PC), where players vie to take over the galaxy as either the Empire or the Rebels. Mysteries of the Sith (PC), the expansion for 1997's Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight, brings another popular Expanded Universe character, Mara Jade, to the realm of gaming (as Katarn's apprentice and redeemer). DroidWorks (PC) turns children into droid designers, putting their creations in learning-based missions

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
