Darth Vader[edit | edit source]
You are Darth Vader, Lord of the Sith, master of the Dark Side of the Force. Once a power for good in the galaxy, you are now feared as the ultimate evil. Obi-Wan Kenobi, a Jedi Knight, opened you to the power of the Force. You became his apprentice and learned the ways of the Jedi. But Kenobi's methods were slow and difficult, not quick and easy as you hoped they would be.
So you gave yourself over to the Dark Side, allowing it to consume you so that you could be reborn in a more powerful image. Now you stand with the Emperor, bent on subjugating the entire galaxy to his New Order. You helped destroy the Jedi, wiping their spark from the universe. Now no one can oppose you or the Emperor…
…except for young Luke Skywalker. He is strong in the Force, but untrained, not yet a true Jedi. He is only a boy, but the Emperor fears his untapped potential. You have been ordered to convert him to the Dark Side — or destroy him! Is there more to this young man than even you are aware of?
Luke Skywalker[edit | edit source]
You are Luke Skywalker, hero of the Rebellion. Once you were only a farm boy with dreams of fighting the Empire. But events made your dream real, plunging you into a raging civil war. You learned that the mysterious power called the Force flowed strongly through you, coming to your aid when you needed it most. With the Force as your ally, it seemed you could accomplish anything.
With the help of Obi-Wan Kenobi and the Jedi Master Yoda, you began training in the ways of the Force and the Jedi Knights. You wanted to become a Jedi, one of those legendary protectors of the Old Republic, for with such power you could defeat the Empire and restore justice to the galaxy. But circumstances caused you to abandon your training — not yet a Jedi, but no longer a normal man.
Now you must face your most dangerous foe in mortal combat — Darth Vader, evil Jedi Knight and master of the Dark Side. Better trained, more powerful, Vader stands as an affront to everything you believe in. Are your untried skills powerful enough to defeat him?
