Nintendo N64 Star Wars Shadows of the Empire SKUN6426

Nintendo N64 Star Wars Shadows of the Empire SKUN6426 is a 1996 third person shooter video game, developed by LucasArts.

In the game, the player controls the mercenary Dash Rendar in his efforts to help Luke Skywalker and rescue Princess Leia from Prince Xizor. It takes place as a back story between the movies, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

The story begins shortly before the battle of Hoth, as Dash Rendar and Leebo arrive in Echo Base to deliver supplies. He briefly talks with Han Solo, who gets him a position in Rogue Squadron. Dash flies in the battle, but returns to Echo Base when the shield generator is destroyed, just as the Millennium Falcon leaves. He makes his way through the base, attempting to return to The Outrider. Dash encounters several wampas on the way, and has to fight an AT-ST, but eventually makes it back to Leebo and The Outrider, and they escape through an asteroid field.

Part 2 begins after the end of The Empire Strikes Back, as Dash searches for Boba Fett, so he can rescue Han Solo. He hunts down and battles IG-88, attempting to repair his ship on Ord Mantell. The droid tells him that Fett is hiding on a moon of the planet Gall. Dash finds Boba Fett, and damages his ship, Slave I, but Fett manages to escape.

Believing that The Emperor will let him take Vader’s place if Skywalker is killed, Prince Xizor orders Jabba the Hutt to kill Luke Skywalker. Jabba sends a group of swoop bikers to Obi-Wan Kenobi’s home, where Luke is practicing his Jedi skills. Dash races them, and ends up eliminating all members of the gang. Luke informs Dash of a secret imperial supercomputer aboard the Imperial Freighter Suprosa. Dash steals the computer, and battles with a cargo droid in a hangar.

The final chapter begins with Luke, Lando Calrissian, Chewbacca, and Dash infiltrating Xizor’s palace on Coruscant to save Princess Leia, whom Xizor has taken captive. Dash enters the palace through the sewers, and battles an enormous dianoga in the sewer, before entering the palace itself, where he does battle with Xizor’s Gladiator Droid. After defeating the droid, Xizor escapes to his Skyhook space station. Xizor battles the Rebellion before a Star Destroyer arrives. Dash then proceeds to fly into the Skyhook, and destroys it from the inside. Dash is presumably killed in the blast, along with Xizor.

A short scene before the credits show Luke and Leia on Tatooine, mourning Dash’s death. If the game is beaten on the Medium, Hard, or Jedi difficulty levels, this is followed by one more scene of Dash and Leebo, who had managed to escape the blast, discussing how they plan on hiding from their enemies, with Dash saying, “It’s good to be remembered as a martyr without actually being dead, wouldn’t you say?”
