The worst Star Wars video games
Finally, we want to comment on the worst Star Wars video games because even though they have had great successes, it is also important to comment that not all their games have had the expected success.
Star Wars: Kinect
This was not one of the best Star Wars Kinect proposals, although it was a good idea since the character was controlled through the gestures made in front of the TV. But the execution of the game was not so much and that is why it did not have the expected success.
Star Wars: Obi-Wan
Star Wars: Obi-Wan was one of the first games to be made for Xbox and the game’s production failed again since despite having a good storyline, it had neither good graphics nor good development.
Star Wars: Yoda Stories
Yoda Stories was a video game through which the creators wanted to give a new approach to the saga and add elements of strategy in its development. Although the intention was correct, the development was not, and it could be considered one of the worst.
