    Shadows is the one that feels the most like it could be in an actual movie. I guess I'll go with that one, though TFU and KOTOR2 have some great tracks as well.

    The original KOTOR score, it both feels unique and still sounds like it came from a Star Wars film.

    However Bounty Hunter is really underrated and might have even been my second choose. The soundtrack was done by Jeremy Soule himself no less.

    KotOR II is probably the most memorable for me. Love this track:

    I think Fallen Order did a pretty good job too.

    I really enjoy the varied use of the actual SW soundtracks as the music to different levels in Shadows of the Empire. I'm biased though in that I grew up on that game. And I'm not super familiar with any other SW game.

    Force Unleashed has to be my fave (along with the sequel, pretty much all the tracks in that game are phenomenal). Jedi Fallen Order has a lot of nice ambience tracks, but I haven't listened to it much outside of the game as of yet.

    Republic Commando is the only other one of those I really have an opinion on, I really like the track Prologue, it has a great slow build to the main theme:

    I liked Shadows of the Empire on N64. The menu screen had music from the ESB soundtrack that was not used in the film if memory serves.

    Probably Force Unleashed for it's main theme alone but BF 2015 had some memorable tracks too.

    There's nothing like being in a close game with this track playing.

    The first Dark Forces game has a great underrated soundtrack IMO. I have a real soft spot for it's simplistic old school 90's style of music.

    The original Dark Forces had a great opening theme. I also rather like the music from TIE Fighter.

    I've been playing Star Wars arcade on the Sega CD which is pretty cool, although ancient.

    the RS main theme is infuriatingly catchy. :D

    Jedi Fallen Order for me because when this happens it makes Mongolian metal officially canon

    I've been playing Star Wars on the NES. It's a platformer and really hard. The music is like the movies, but NES style.

    People have mentioned The Force Unleashed soundtrack and I thought it's worth mentioning the second games soundtrack as well. Maybe not as good as the first, but there's some gems like the bombastic Fighting the Gorog.

    I'm playing TPM podracing game on N64 which oddly doesn't have any in game music. But it allows you to hear all the character's voices.

    Haven't played a lot of SW video games but I spent the most time on SW Bounty Hunter. So I'll say that.

    That was a decent game but the controls were weird.

    They weren't to me since it was the first VG I tried. Bought the PS2 for it.

    I think I found every creative way to die in that game. The jetpack (or lack of) was usually involved.

    maybe it's just because I was terrible at it. I think I rented it from Blockbuster.

    Oh I sucked mightily at first. Having the Strategy Guide helped a lot.
