I played through this game soooo many times. Did a fair bit of multiplayer too. Since I used the lightsaber 90% of the time once I got it (and used the third person view with it), I never really considered the game a first person shooter. =)

I played the hell out of this game during my teenage years. The modding community was tremendous and I really don't think any other game support modded levels that were as massive (in terms of square footage) as this game did.

Fortunately, it looks like the old modding stomping grounds are still around (http://massassi.net/). Warms my heart. Area 21 map, drazen isle... I could go on and on.

I'm not sure that you can get all the mod stuff up and running in the Steam version, have not tried.

How great was the lightsaber combat! So tense. No sword-fu like in the post-prequel era. Very classic jedi stand-off type stuff. http://giphy.com/gifs/aQympn3e...
