[edit] Background

Climb aboard your ship in Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire! The games starts out with you on a desert plain, but once you find your ship, don't believe that things will quiet down. From shooting TIE fighters to battling AT-STs, you have to be on your toes every second! At times there will be side missions that will put you in a position to drive a "Swoop Bike" to fending off the leaders who try to create a dangerous plan is all what you are set out to do. Once you are done completing a level, you can go back to any level you have already beaten and good access miscellanous hidden challenges.
