The Massassi Arena, located on Yavin 4, was once a great fighting arena created by the Massassi people.[source?] The Arena was multi-leveled stone structure, with boxes on the top level at its east and west. A pyramidal altar was to its north, and a gate to its south. Prior to the Battle of Yavin, the arena was captured from the Rebel Alliance by a force of Imperial stormtroopers, who converted it into a monitoring outpost.
Behind the scenes
The Arena appears in a map in the 2004 video game Star Wars: Battlefront. During the Historical Campaign, the battle on the map appears as an Imperial mission, although the game's story is secondary continuity, according to Leland Chee, the keeper of Lucasfilm Ltd.'s Holocron continuity database. The map is also available in the game's sequel via an Xbox Live patch. The Arena also appears as a multiplayer match in Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast.
