20 cancelled Star Wars games revealed

starwarsgamesA host of cancelled Star Wars games were revealed in the LucasArts tell-all book, Rogue Leaders: The Story of LucasArts.

While published in 2008, the logos for 20 canned Star Wars projects is just now coming to light (thanks, AllGamesBeta). Interestingly, even then there was a tie-in for the unannounced-at-the-time Episode 7, planned with the subtitle Shadows of the Sith. A third Jedi Knight was planned as well, subtitled Brink of Darkness, but sadly never went anywhere.

The logos run the gamut from slick to silly. I’m particular fond of the golden era noirish logo for Star Wars: Scum and Villainy, while you just know that Star Wars: Dark Jedi would have been that series’ Shadow of Hedgehog.

  1. Looking at that it looks like a “rough list” where they’d throw around name ideas and styles – which means that almost certainly isn’t 20 games but alternate names for a couple of games.
