Ace Combat 5
Age of Empires 2: Age of Kings
- There is a point in the game on a mission, mid flight, when on the radio chatter, your wingmen drop the phrase 'I've got a Bad feeling about This', Immediately following by a sneak attack from your supposed allies, with your other wingman screaming 'Its a Trap!' through the radio.

Atlantis : The Lost Tales
- Just wanted to let you know that in the Armed and Dangerous demo for Xbox there is a Star Wars reference cutscene. Your squad of three characters find their friend freezing, the one character explains he knows a simple way to warm him up and carries the frozen team mate to a creature that's lying on it's side. While this is happening your main character explains that he has seen it before and that your robotic friend (the one carrying the frozen guy) is going to cut open the stomach of the beast and wrap the frozen body in their entendrils to keep him warm. The robot then replies that it isn't necessary and shoves the little body up the creature's rear. The creature then wakes up and runs around wildly.
- At one point, the uber-badguy captures
your 'girlfriend', Anna, and you must save
her... So, later, you arrive on his flying boat, and the
girl's there... in a slave garment designed by Creon, the
bad guy in question... Sounds familiar ? Yes... Jabba's sail
barge and Leia's famous slave costume.
Crono Trigger & Crono Cross

Day of the Tentacle
- When you are climbing through the ventilation shafts on the Death Star
if you have your light on you can read a pixelated "EWOKS SUCK" on the walls. I wonder if this was put in by the Emperor himself?

- On the "big map" of California when you're traveling arround, look at the legend in the corner of the screen that says "Vault-Tech". You can clearly see "L5-AA23" - where Princess Leia was held and TK-421 - the designation of the Storm Trooper that Luke stole ("TK-421 why aren't you at your post?).
- One of the Bridge Guards at Arroyo is named Mynoc.
- When you ask Whinkey Bob about The Den in Kalamath, he refers to it with: "You will not find a more wretched hive of scum and villany"

- Also in New Reno, one of the dailogue line choices when you're trying to bluff you car back from T-Ray is "Perhaps you feel you are being treated...unfairly?"
- After completing the game, if you choose to keep playing you can hear some of the NPCs to say "I felt a great disturbance...as if a hundred evil bastards on an oil derrick suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. Strange."
Final Fantasy has many Star Wars related references. The reason? Hironobu Sakaguchi, who conceived the Final Fantasy games, has cited Star Wars as his main influence on several occasions.
- Two characters have appeared in the Final Fantasy series since FFVI. They are Biggs and Wedge, and were imperial soldiers. Originally
Biggs was called Vicks in 6, but this was later changed back to Biggs in the recent re-release of VI on the playstation. Both were part of an underground rebellion at
the beginning of FFVII against the Shinra Corporate, and went back to being troopers in FFVIII.
- There have been plenty of other well known names that have appeared, or seem to appear, in the FF series. These include Nida, who pilots Balamb Garden, Piet, who
is in charge of Esthar's space station, as well as Camie and Fixer, who are fellow rebels in FF7.
- A character called Cid has appeared in the FF series since FF6, and according to Sakaguchi, is very much like Master Yoda himself
- Another character, that many have been talking about, is RedXIII. Is it a reference to the X-Wing call sign? Not quite, according to Bry-Gon:
Once the player reaches Cosmo Canyon (in FF7), it is revealed that Red XIII's real name is "Nanaki". Now, just rearrange the letters slightly ... take the first letter and put it at the end. Anakin.
- Well known phrases have also appeared in the FF series. The final boss of Final Fantasy IX says "Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering."
Another villain in FF9 quotes the Emperor: "Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen".
- While playing Final Fantasy 9, in Memoria disk 4 when you are going about collecting information about your past, there is a scene where you have witnessed the destruction of a town (no names given just incase it spoils it for someone who hasn't played the game). At the end of it a guy named Garland speaks to you in your mind saying the classic words of Yoda:
Fear leads to anger,
Anger leads to hate,
Hate leads to suffering.....
- In Final Fantasy seven there is a charecter called Cait Sith with the ability to read the future.
- In Final Fantasy X the main bad guy is the main charecters father.
- Biggs and wedge appear once again, this time as blitzball players in the :uca fint gate
- Final Fantasy VII. In Nibelheim, if you look closely at the sign above the bar it says "The Ewok"
The following are passwords for the game:

Frogger: The Great Quest
- In one of the last story missions you are to get some kind of special energy source from a giant nomad hive. After you've entered the system and the massive construction emerges from the thick fog, one of your copilots coughs: "Look at the size of that thing!"
- On one level Frogger must go into a cave beneath a twisted tree and defeat the "Dark One". The Dark One looks like the grim reaper, but when you defeat him, part of his skull falls away to reveal Frogger's face. Very similar to the scene in "The Empire Strikes Back".
- When you find the lady in the dumpster, she says "Help me Ben, you're my only hope."
Gex 64: Enter the Gecko

Half-Life: Opposing Force
- In the middle of the boss fight against "Baron Von Ghoul", he stops the fight and begins to talk. He says "Mwa haa! Your puny attacks cannot harm me! You must join me and together we shall rule the mansion as father and son..!" Then Cooper, your character, says "Nooooooo! That's not true! That's impossible!". Then "Baron Von Ghoul" says "No, wait...wrong speech! What I meant to say is I'm a sporting gentleman, so take this weapon. It'll give you a fighting chance!". Obvious refrence to the dialog at the end of the "Bespin Duel". Mike also provided us with some screenshots of the dialog, 1, 2, and 3.
Heroes of Might and Magic 4
- Before a Security Guard and Scientist get killed in a scripted sequence (happens just after you encounter a portly security guard with his arm stuck in a broken vending machine), the security guard asks the scientist something like "have you seen the new IG-88".

Your character: "What?" "Stampede .. I am your Fath ..... 'static'. After you kill the three enemies you must drive down a long trench full of laser turrets- Then take out the tower. When you have done that your character says "Hmm reminds me of that space station in 63.. " And the mission is completed.
Kirby 64: Legend of the Crystal Shards
- During Act I, Mission III (an attack on an orbital prison facility), the text before the mission states that the prison's designation is "1138."
- Not a Star Wars reference, but an interesting easter egg: in the mountain level where you are supposed to blow up the ore extractors there are small little buildings which you can blow up with one shot. In one of the groups of buildings there is a battle droid making a snow battle droid like a snow man, including a blaster.
LEGO Island 2
- If Kirby has the combined cutting and electric ability, he will whip out a yellow double bladed lightsaber, and it makes sounds very similar to a lightsaber too.
Leisure Suit Larry
- In the sequence where Cedric the Bull is shooting
cannons at you, sometimes Pepper will say "If you
strike me down, Cedric, I will just come back more
powerful than you can imagine!"
Little Big Adventure
- When Larry talks to a female character named Bilzarbra, she tells him she wants to be in movies. During their conversation, Larry daydreams a lot, but she mentions that she had met Hayden, was blown away by his acting in AOTC, etc. She even thought he should play Batman in the horrid "Batman & Robin" movie!
Later on, Larry gets her to read a script he wrote and says she has to imagine that he is playing the part of her "dream date" Hayden.
The Longest Journey
- One of the guys in the Library (which is located on the "Principal Island") tells you: "'m a huge STAR WARSz fan. The saga's sequel should be released soon, so I already reserved my seat in the movie theater!"
The kicker? The game was released in 1994.
Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete
- At one point during the game, there is a large sphere on the ground in front of
a cafe. If you click on it, your character says "Can you say 'Death Star'?"
and if you click it again she says "Let's blow this thing and go home!",
"Look at the size of that thing!" or "Good shot Red 2!".
- During the game, a townsperson says "Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering." One of the characters in your party
comments "Didn't you get that from ... somewhere ... else?"
Medal of Honor: Spearhead
- There is an X-wing hanging in Weird Ed Edison's room
The Monkey Island Saga
- As the level starts, the Soviet characters are standing around talking as soldiers do, but in Russian of course. Subtitle are supplied at the bottom of the screen. The part that got my attention was as one Soviet says "Have you seen the new T-34's?", and the second Soviet replies "No, but some of the other guys were telling me about them." Just then they are interrupted and the action ensues.
- SithMaster writes in: "The T-34's in Spearhead are not a Sar Wars referance, they were actually Russian tanks in World War 2"

- Guybrush has just arrived on Monkey Island. A fellow pirate is

from atop the grassy knoll, Guybrush remarks "Thats funny, the damage
doesn't look as bad from out here,".
The Secret of Monkey Island
- Guybrush is talking to this Voodoo lady and
suddenly she feels "a great disturbance in the Force. As if a tiny, tiny
voice called out in fear, and then hastily scratched a message in a table."
She's talking, of course, about little Wally the Cartographer, who's just
been nabbed by the nefarious Largo!
- NOTE: THE FOLLOWING IS ALSO A SPOILER TO THE ENDING. HIGHLIGHT TO READ:
At the end, LeChuck reveals that
he's Guybrush's brother, and there are a few lines that are similar to Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi: "I'm your brother." "No! That's impossible!" "Help me take off
this mask so you can look my true form."
Escape from Monkey Island
- At the beginning, Guybrush is begging the Voodoo Lady to
accompany him on his new quest: "You're my only hope!" "No. There is another."
- When Guybrush arrives on Monkey Island
and talks to Herman Toothrot, He says "I'm Guybrush Threepwood, I'm here to
- Guybrush is trying to bum a ride to Skull Island, and this exchange occurs
between him and the ferryman: "I'm not afraid." "You will be. You WILL be!"
- Toward the end, Guybrush is recounting LeChuck's horrifying revelation from
the end of MI2, and once again, LeChuck utters "Search your feelings, you
know it to be true!"
- Guybrush walks into a barber shop after being tarred and feathered, and one
of the owners says "We don't serve your kind here!"
Curse of Monkey Island

Cabana Boy: You can go about your business.
Guybrush Threepwood: Move along.
Cabana Boy: Move along, move along... hey! Your mind tricks won't work on me, boy!
- As you all know, sports commentators make plenty of strange comments during play. In this EA Sports title, listen out to the following comment: "He's
hockey's answer to Yoda. He sees all, he knows all, he uses the Force to guide him" or something similar.
No One Lives Forever
- Sometimes the commentator says "This guy is the jedi master of blocking"
Phantasy Star Online
- The cheat codes are from the Bentframe
rap song "Star Wars Gangsta Rap". Those are lyrics that are found at the end
of the song.
- The cheats for weapons, armor
and god mode are : imyourfather and : wegotdeathstar (or defstar as the game spells it).
- Also, when you call up extra ammo, the text at the top of the screen reads: "knock'em out of the box Luke!".
Box, or Death Star? You decide.
- Some of the weapons in this online RPG look very similar to lightsabers.
- In Violet City you encounter a guy named Earl who runs a Pokemon Academy and he seems to talk suspiciously backwards like a certain Green Jedi Master.....
- When you are escaping from the mines, the troopers that try to stop your escape shout out a few words or two. One of their phrases, believe it or not, centers around
calling you "Rebel scum".
Sam & Max Hit the Road
- There is a mission where you are given a choice from one God to betray another. The God says "I can give you rewards beyond what you can imagine." If you refuse, your character says "I don't know, I can imagine quite a lot."
The Simpsons: Road Rage
- There's a cleaning droid which looks a lot like R2 and when you activate it, it projects a small blue holo looking a lot like Leia (something like 3 pixels) that says : "Help me Sam & Max, you're my only hope."
- Shuv-ool says : "[...] millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror... and were suddenly silenced [...]"
The Simpsons: Hit and Run
- Keep an eye out while driving through the Downtown area, as there is a store named "Java the Hutt", a now well known joke first seen in The Phantom Menace's credits as well as a take on Jabba the Hutt himself.
- When you're driving as Homer you'll sometimes hear him say "Stay on target! Stay on target!"
- It has been mentioned that two Star Wars still shots appear somewhere in the original Sims, and its expansion paks (House Party, Livin' Large and Hot Date). The most expensive PC has what looks like a still from Return of the Jedi or A New Hope, similar to ships flying in towards the death star, with a blue/green planet in the background (Endor?). And it's also been mentioned that a scene from Episode I's Pod Racing sequence appears on the TV.
- On the Warehouse level Blade (player's character) and JC (Blade's hacker sidekick) discusses security grid, dialog follows:
JC: "My remote sensors show some tight security there, so stealth is the
key, oh noisy-one-kenobi."
Blade: "They won't even know I'm here!"
Star Trek Elite Force II
- In one of the earlier Terran missions you have to lead Jim Raynor and a group of
soldiers through an installation to retrieve computer data. On the way, you
meet several enemies, some of whom taunt you. One of these taunts is "You rebel scum"
Starfox & Starfox 64
- In a Klingon bar in the 9th level there is a conversation between
an Andorian, a Klingon and a smuggler that is nearly the exact same conversation
that takes place between Han, Luke, and Obi-Wan inthe Mos Eisley Cantina. It is
actually quite funny as all the Star Wars references are replaced with their
Star Trek equivalents.
Star Wars: Obi-Wan
- The Arwing, the attack ship used by the main characters of the SNES classic and it's sequel, Starfox 64, sounds much like an attack craft flown in the Star Wars galaxy, the A-Wing, and looks ever so slightly like the X-Wing (although without the X style engine design).
- After the final battle in Starfox 64, you must escape the wave of fire following you in the tunnels, and find your way out. Not only does fox's father (who is showing you the path to the exit) mention a phrase much like that of Obi-Wan in A New Hope, once you find the way out, the FMV sequence following (and the entire escape level itself) follows a similar line to the Falcon's escape from the second Death Star.
- When you enter All-range mode, although the Arwings' wings move outwards, you get the feeling the developers were following the X-Wing "S-foils into attack position" style.
Super Smash Brothers
- During the training level, when you reach the area to learn the Force Throw ability, the voice over mentions ". . . throw one of the objects at training droid 1138"
Super Smash Brothers Melee
- A weapon in the game looks awfully like a red lightsaber.
- Just like the N64 original (above) one of the many weapons in the game looks the same as a lightsaber.
- One of the enemy's taunts when attacking is "Aren't you a little
short for a stormtrooper?"
- If you play as Eddy and you crash, sometimes he will say Red Leader to base I've been hit
- Toward the beginning of the game, after your engineer's restored power to the infirmary you have to get an access code from the computer to open a locked door. The code is 1138... a nice nod to Star Wars in a sicko (but cool) game.
ToeJam & Earl 3: Misson To Earth on Xbox.
- During one particular mission, you must target and identify several cargo containers to see if
they contain smuggled weapons for the Alliance. The containers themselves are given call numbers.
One of these containers and has the number THX-1138.
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3
- On multiple occasions Lamont says "May The Funk Be With You" & "Use The Funk" and other "Force" related quotes.
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4
- The great Sith Darth Maul appears as a secret playable character in this skateboard title on PS2. He uses both his lightsaber and dark force powers in certain tricks.
True Crime: Streets of LA
- Jango Fett makes an appearance as an unlockable character. You have to buy him, and his code name is "Star Warrior". His moves are:
- Rocket Pack Grab (When launching off a vert ramp he ignites his Jet Pack while holding onto his Hoverboard. BIG AIR)
- Blaster Grind (While grinding, he spins his blaster on his finger and fires a couple shots)
- Grapple Hook Grab (When launching off a vert ramp he tosses his Hoverboard away then fires his arm grapple line to grab it and pull it in. If you do it while spinning, it looks even cooler)
Unreal Tournament 2004
- In True Crime, there is a criminal who has stolen the car of a certain "Borge Lucas"(Something Like That) and in that car is "The Script For The Upcoming Space Wars Sequel".
Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos
- One of the assault missions involves a massive attack in "one man fighters" against a space station/ship of large proportions. I saw the mission and in it's walkthrough, it is very evident that this is a nod to the two battles over the Death Stars in Star Wars!
Along with fighter engagements, you do have to fly into the superstructure and disable key points lowering the shield in order to destroy the station.
World War 2 Online
- One of the things that Blizzard does to spice up their games, is that if you rapidly click on a unit, something happens. For the critters, which are basically moving scenery, they blow up. For actual game units, they say something not related to the game, sometimes comical.
Many of those comments are based on well known Star Wars phrases, or are in relation to the saga:
"Me no sound like Yoda... Do I?"
Neutral- Goblin Zepplin:
"You worry about the towers, I'll worry about the mini map." - aka Luke to Wedge in A New Hope
Human- Griffon Rider:
(with scottish accent) "Judge meh' by mah' size, do yeh'?" - aka Yoda in Empire Strikes Back
"Stay on target!" and when dying: "It came...from...behind." - both from Pops, the last Y-Wing pilot shot down in A New Hope
Night Elves- Dryad:
"I'm not the Dryad you're looking for." - aka Obi-wan Kenobi in A New Hope
"Once you head down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny ... And you get dental." - funny take of Yoda from Empire Strikes Back
- One of the storyline characters is a human archmage named Jaina (aka Jaina Solo)
- Before setting out on the quest to get the Frostmourne sword, the
Mountain King hero says "I have a bad feeling about this."
- When Demon Hunter heroes are finished training or reviving they say "At
last we will have revenge."
- The mercenary Troll Priests will sometimes say "E chu ta" when you click
- This isn't actually part of the game, but take a look inside the flap of the box, at
the bottom right hand corner there is a newspaper headline that says "Forget
the **** about Dwarves and Wookies!". An interesting quote, wouldn't you say?
