Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is highly regarded as arguably the best Star Wars game ever made, and one of the best role-playing games ever. Originally made by BioWare, KOTOR is set four thousand years prior to the Star Wars films, and tells the story of Darth Malak and his Sith armada trying to wipe out the remaining Jedi Order.
