Let this guide carry you through an adventure in a galaxy far, far away.

"Oh yeah," I said to myself when I was gong through my files to remind myself what guide work I had done, "that game exists and I wrote a guide for it!"
The game, of course, was Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Republic Heroes, which is based on an animated television show. That show recently ended, an apparent casualty of Disney's purchase of LucasFilm, but there was a time when the program was a Cartoon Network mainstay. It inspired several games, this one among them.
Perhaps "inspired" isn't quite the right word. In my Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Republic Heroes review at HonestGamers, I note that it "has an assortment of serious issues, but the most crippling one of all is that it doesn't trust the player to have a good time."
As was sometimes the case with games released around that time, I only was able to speak from experience because IGN had me write a Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Republic Heroes guide, which of course meant I had to play the game from start to finish and pay plenty of attention along the way. I wouldn't say that the experience was awful or anything, but there were good ideas at play that never got the chance to properly mature before they were harvested.
In any event, the guide is available and its navigation appears to have been fixed after it was converted from an HTML guide to a wiki guide, so you don't have to go into the experience alone if you choose to take a chance with the game. At least, no one will force you to...
