LucasArt Look Back: Star Wars Shadows of the Empire

This weeks LucasArts Look Back goes out to an Nintendo 64 exclusive launch title!

Shadows Of The Empire is a 3rd person shooter as well as a very fast and fun flying simulation released by Nintendo and LucasArts in December of 1996. The game takes place between the events of Empire Strikes Back and Return Of The Jedi. You play as slick
Mercenary Dash Rendar on his quest to aid Luke Skywalker in fighting the evil Prince Xizor, as well as saving Princess Leia. The game has several different elements of flying and 3rd person battles. One of my favorite parts of the game was going up against my favorite Star Wars character Boba Fett. While being an exclusive title for the Nintendo 64, the game was later ported onto the Microsoft Windows operating system in 1997.
