Speaking of Star Wars games that might see a comeback... who remembers Republic Commando? The game, released in 2005, is a classic to most Star Wars fans. It followed the story of a squad of Clone commandos that fight during the Clone Wars. You saw them go through several conflicts and it was a gritty, meaty change to many other Star Wars games of the time. Sadly, we haven't seen anything else of Republic Commando since those early days 12 years ago. No updates. No re-releases. No remastering... until now.

Some fans have made it their mission to revive the game and we're definitely going to be following this one to see where it goes.
