An older game, but an absolute classic nonetheless, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic has been enamoring Star Wars fans and gamers alike since 2003 with its unique battle system, incredible storyline, and amazing characters, possibly being the best game of the franchise ever made. The game is also credited as having one of the most unexpected yet completey feasible plot twists in the medium. It furthered this legacy with a sequel in 2004, and earlier this month a mmorpg, Star Wars: The Old Republic, was released, deeply expanding upon the Old Republic universe and mythos.
The “Old Republic” games feature their fair share of babes and beauties, as anything Star Wars related tends to. Perhaps the most well known is cover girl and jedi Bastila from the original game, a character that is included in much of the promotional artwork. Although she can come off a bit snotty at times, and looks like a bit like a stereotypical “video game chick,” she still plays a major in the plot and provides a few interesting bits of story herself. Also in this game is Juanhi, a Carthar and perhaps the first lesbian in the Star Wars universe who can have a relationship with the main character if they are female, and, for the xenophiles, the infamous Twi’lek dancers (although some of them can have very interesting coloring on their tentacles.)
The sequel has less diversity in terms of women as main characters, but makes up for it by having female characters that are subjectively more interesting (and “prettier.”) The most notable beautiful women in the game look mostly human, and range from Mia the bounty hunter, to Brianna the handmaiden, and even sightless Visas (a part of a race known as Miraluka, which have no phusical sight and must rely on force sight.) With the mmorpg’s customizable characters, which allow for the choice of nine difference species, the only real limit is the player’s imagination in creating their ideal Star Wars “babe.”
For gamers that haven’t had the chance to play any of the games in this series, and have a suitable pc, the original seems to be constantly onsale on Steam. However, finding a physical copy for the Xbox is rather difficult, especially for gamers on a budget. In any case, the games are classic rpgs, and show that the Star Wars franchise can create some of the most interesting video game women in the medium.
