Can you imagine a world where Star Warswas over? That actually happened, a long time ago, right here on Earth. The saga had been receding in the public sphere for a few years, barring a couple of Ewok adventures and a dwindling supply of action figures. Even the Marvel Comics we’d been collecting since 1977 had come to an end. All things must pass, as they say. At the tail end of the 1980s, we had to find other things to obsess about. So, imagine how it felt to walk into a bookstore in 1991, having been starved of new adventures in a galaxy far, far away seemingly forever, only to be faced with something entirely unexpected: A stack—a hugestack—of hardback novels with two big, warmly familiar words emblazoned in gold…

take command

With The Bad Batch about to debut on Disney+, now seems like the ideal time to remember another elite team of clone troopers: Delta Squad! Under the command of squad leader RC-1138, otherwise known as “Boss,” this rugged military unit were the stars of the hugely popular 2005 PC and Xbox videogame, Republic Commando, and thanks to Lucasfilm Games and Aspyr they’re back in action—only this time on the videogame consoles Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 (via the platform’s backwards compatibility). The port of the tactical Star Wars shooter, upgraded for playability on modern hardware, allows players to command their unit through an increasingly difficult succession of dangerous missions, and faithfully recaptures the unique appeal of the original.
