    I pulled out mine and took to school for my 4th graders at the end of this school year. When they saw it, one said, "Hey, Ive seen on of those on youtube before!"

    In 1996, I remember seeing the commercials for Shadow of the Empire, but at the time, I was investing all my money into my publishing business and buying art supplies. I bought the book but didn't have time to read it... I missed out on all those Star Wars video games for trying to be a responsible adult...

    Also I read a book, which outlined how the gaming industry led to the demise of Marvel Comics ( they sold Spiderman, X-Men, and the Fantastic Four because they were going bankrupt). Kids were buying video games instead of comic books, and the comic book industry was crashing.

    ...So since I was publishing comic books I boycotted video games.

    Years later I went out and bought an Original Xbox so I could play KOTOR. I couldn't believe that a Star Wars video game was getting so many awards... I had to get it and I've been playing Star Wars games ever since... I wish I had jumped on earlier, though. I missed out on some great games...

    I remember seeing the TV ad for Shadows of the Empire and being completely blown away!

    I have first and foremost always been SEGA fan and even though I owned the Saturn at the time, there was no way that I wasn't going to buy an N64. The N64 was a great console for Star Wars games so much so that a few years later I bought a Gamecube to partner my Sega Dreamcast which itself had a few decent Star Wars games.

    Once Sega stopped making consoles I switched to Xbox, which I have been with ever since. Sadly though I never really liked any of the Star Wars games on any of the Xbox consoles, I don't know why but the battlefront games show little interest for me as I prefer to have an exciting story.

    Thats why Shadows of the Empire remains to this day as one of my favourite ever games.

    Favorite level was the junk level. I must have played it a hundred times trying to defeat IG-88. When I discovered the invincible pack, I took down IG-88 and felt ten feet tall.
