Opening crawl[edit | edit source]
Official site description[edit | edit source]
Join the legendary Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi as he takes on the worst scum and villainy the galaxy has to offer in level after level of fast-paced action. In Star Wars® Obi-Wan™, you'll call upon the Force and your powerful lightsaber as you face a mysterious new enemy, an assassin droid project and a devious plot that could dramatically shift the balance of power in the universe. Fight your way through an underworld trail of munitions dealers and crime lords-from the lowest depths of Coruscant and dusty Tatooine to the lush city of Theed. The Force is in your hands.
The power of a legend is yours as you wield Obi-Wan's considerable Force powers, Jedi agility and lightsaber in 15+ action-packed levels.
Force abilities include Force attack, push, pull, throw, defend and jump.
Tune your skills in up to six two-player arenas—facing Jedi Masters such as Mace Windu, Ki-Adi-Mundi and Saesee Tiin.
Original storyline brings you face-to-face with a host of new and familiar enemies—ranging from Tusken Raiders and assassin droids, to the evil Sith Lord Darth Maul.

Reception[edit | edit source]
The game was almost universally panned, an issue which most likely stemmed from the abrupt PC cancellation and porting to the Xbox. However, the game did feature a number of significant expanded universe events, such as Obi-Wan's rescue of the Queen (who, unbeknownst to Obi-Wan, was in fact Sabé in disguise) from Tusken Raiders. Many of these events have yet to appear elsewhere.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
Cheat codes/Easter eggs[edit | edit source]
To unlock all levels, including the bonus levels, use greytherat as the player name. It also has Battle Royale, a secret bonus level.
Using the name M1A2U3L4!? activates all levels up to Darth Maul's level and allows you to view the ending clips and receive a 'bonus' mission, Battle Royale, officially. There is an Easter egg at the end of the credits after completing the game for the first time which parodies, line for line, a quote from the movie Trainspotting. Obi-Wan's voice says the following:
- Choose the Force. Choose a job. Choose the Dark Side. Choose the Council. Choose a flubbing big lightsaber. Choose protocol droids, holoprojectors, and R2 units. Choose Watto, Tatooine and Alderaan. Choose fixed-interest credit payments to Sebulba. Choose a Corellian freighter that did the Kessel run in less than twelve parsecs. Choose a Wookiee. Choose sitting in Jabba's throne room, watching mind-numbing dancers, stuffing green chubas into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, disappearing into thin air, nothing more than an embarrassment to the whiny kid you trained on the way to Alderaan. Choose your destiny. Choose the Force. But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose the Dark Side. I chose something else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you've got a lightsaber?
Then an activating lightsaber is heard and the game returns to the main menu. Unfortunately you can not see this Easter egg again when you go back and re-play the final level.
Continuity[edit | edit source]
In the game, the Quarren informant is said to be working for the Coruscant Guard. However, due to its timeline placement, the game may have been referring to the Senate Guard. This is yet to be confirmed by a licensed source. If the player allows an alarm to be sounded, the Black Heth will execute him.
