Star Wars: Dark Forces was developed and published by LucasArts in 1995 and was released on MS-DOS and Macintosh. It would get released on PlayStation in 1996.

The first-person shooter saw players take on the role of Kyle Katarn as he and Jan Ors recover the plans for the Death Star and provide them to the Rebel Alliance in order for them to find a weakness and eventually destroy it. The game then jumps a year and follows Katarn as he uncovers the Empire’s Dark Trooper Project being developed by General Rom Mohc.

As he goes about uncovering the various layers of the Dark Trooper Project, Katarn and Ors run across a number of iconic Star Wars villains including Jabba the Hutt and Boba Fett. Darth Vader is also featured in the game. Furthermore, it allowed players to explore Coruscant and Darth Vader’s Super Star Destroy Executor.
