I was agreeing up until the last one. That game was incredibly meh.

I mean, you choose Force Unleashed in favor of Jedi Knight?

Agreed. Jedi Knight had actual lightsaber physics for one thing.

Though I still agree with the list. Those are some damn fine games.

TFU over Dark Forces/Jedi Knight?

I...wow.
I know these lists usually have one 'troll pic' in them, but this time it went to far.

No cool man, no cool at all.
;P

Jedi Academy, still probably my favorite star wars game aside from X-wing vs Tie Fighter. I didn't play any of the other games from the list besides the star wars games, they just don't interest me.

We shouldn't forget how shit The Force Unleashed was. Especially compared to Jedi Academy and Jedi Outcast.

I must be one of the few who really liked The Force Unleashed. Sure, it broke Star Wars canon, and the characters and plot were forgettable, but the gameplay showcased some really neat technologies (enemy AI that clings on to things as you force push them, objects that shatter/bend/wobble realistically) and it was really just a blast to mess around with. The sequel, less so.
Granted, Jedi Outcast was also a great game, with a somewhat more engaging plot and nice gunplay in addition to force powers, but I had a lot more fun with TFU.

And it's good to see Monkey Island is #1 (and #5). Those games will forever be the face of LucasArts adventure games for me. Or rather, LucasFilm Games, as they were known at the time.

2 Monkey Island games and no Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction? 3 Star Wars titles and no OUTLAWS? And if 3 SW titles are going to be there... how in the world does TFU outrank Dark Forces or Republic Commando? Heck, the LEGO game is better by far than TFU.

When I saw this list I thought to myself "I bet they didn't add Zombies Ate My Neighbors". Happy to be wrong on that one.

I don't know if I'd still call ZAMN my favorite game ever, but it was one of the best times I ever had playing co-op with my best friend. We played through it until we just couldn't get any farther. Then a couple of months later we rented a Game Genie from Blockbuster and cheated our way through the game to get to the end. And even with the cheats turned on, it was still bloody brutal. Big Baby was a tough enemy to conquer, but it was so much fun. I bet we played it for 6, maybe 7 hours that one day.

I was going to say that possibly they were taking into account that Raven Software could be considered the developers of Jedi Outcast/Academy (though I guess Dark Forces I and II were Lucasarts) but Battlefront is on the list and you could argue that that's more of a Pandemic thing.

Cant believe you snubbed both Full Throttle and Sam 'n' Max in favor of crap like the Force unleashed :(

Since we're all piling on...

No entry for Dark Forces/Jedi Knight?

Also, I too loved Full Throttle, including another brilliant round of bad-guy voice acting from Mark Hammil
