I'm a bit surprised that neither KOTOR game made the list. Excellent games, shame that so few people have ever played them.

Yeah, that actually seems kinda suspect - I'd have thought KOTOR would have sold more copies than Shadows of the Empire, especially when you include digital sales.

Lego Star the Complete Sage, it is the ultimate Lego game and it is the ultimate Star Wars adaptation

These lists are pointless without numbers. Digging through old NPD threads around the web, I did find that the original Battlefront sold over 542k copies in its first month for the PS2 & Xbox versions combined. Battlefront II sold 914k in its first month between both the PS2 & Xbox versions, and by the end of its second month the PS2 version had apparently exceeded 1M copies (couldn't find anything about the Xbox version). According to The Magic Box (which usually seems congruent with NPD figures that I could find for other games with more complete tracking history), by the end of 2007, Battlefront I sold 2.9M and Battlefront II sold just over 3M, but that's probably not the final lifetime total. NPD data indicates that The Force Unleashed sold about 1.25-1.3M in its first month across the 360, PS3, Wii, and PS2 (the 360 version was nearly half of that total at 610k), but all versions of the game dropped out of the Top 20 the next month, and there are no other figures I could find, but since it outsold both PS2 Battlefront games it almost certainly sold around 3M itself across all versions. Battlefront 2015 sold ~4.7M across the PS4 & XBO versions in Nov. +Dec. 2015. Considering that's just two months of data, it almost certainly sold a fair amount more than that.

That should give us an idea of how big these games were.
