Star Wars: Empire At War 

Microsoft Windows, Mac OSX (LucasArts)

An oldie but a goodie, Star Wars: Empire at War, is now available at the Mac App Store and nobody should pass on this thrilling real-time strategy game. The game takes place in that galaxy far, far away between episodes III and IV---you can play as either the Rebellion or the Empire. If you don’t feel like going through the long campaign you can enjoy brief skirmish events to test your galaxy-conquering skills. The Star Wars fan service is palpable, but even if the space opera franchise wasn’t in the game, the mechanics alone would make for one of the best real-time strategy experiences out there. For a game that came out in 2007, it still holds up really well and for fans of Star Wars, or the RTS genre, it’s an easy choice. The force is strong with this one.
