Star Wars: Imperial Assault

It is no surprise that we’ve included a Star Wars game, is it? How could we forgo the largest and most popular sci-fi universe the world has ever seen? Star Wars: Imperial Assault is a fantastic campaign-based roleplaying game in which each player will select a character and slowly build up their abilities and become stronger. A group of players will combine to form a party of space adventurers, while one player will take over the evil Empire, fighting to take down the others in team-based fights every mission! This game is vast and filled with awesome moments in a legendary universe. What’s there not to like?
