I don't know much about them, because I'm not a fan of the movies but aren't the Star Wars game suppose to be awsome?
Depends on what game your looking at. Star Wars games are really hit or miss. I haven't played most of them, but a lot of the Episode 1 game didn't fare too well. Starfighter for the PS2 was good though, and that was one of the earlier PS2 games.
Rouge Squadron 1-3 is are some of the peak Star Wars games, in my opinion. It's arcadey, but they are awsome! Only thing is the third one has too few ship missions, and not enough ground variety for my tastes.
The Super Star Wars games on the Super NES were really good I remember. They were hard, but good. The NES ones didn't fare too well. I had the Gameboy ports, and while long and expansive, just weren't much fun.
On the PC side, there are WAY too many to count. However, the X-Wing/Tie Fighter series of flight sim games were extremely good. I only have X-Wing and Tie Fighter, and while I never beat X-Wing, Tie Fighter was certainly a great sequal that improved upon X-Wing in many ways.
I can't bring up Star Wars games without mentioning the vector graphics Star Wars games. It's on Rogue Squadron 3, and it is still cool. Extremely simplistic, but I'm sure it blew people away in 1981(think that was the release date). Who wouldn't want to pilot an X-Wing and blow up the Death Star? Empire was pretty good, but I dont' think it was as strong as the original cause they didn't have as much to go on. Jedi never recieved a vector graphics game, only a 3/4 view sprite game that was a scrolling shooter/obisticle avoider.
So basicly there's crap in the Star Wars Universe of games, and there is good, so it really does even out. But a lot of the Star Wars stuff is in the expanded universe, so it's hard to really put that in with the movie stuff. Still, it's some of the best licensed games out there.
