#8. Star Wars: Rogue Squadron (N64)
Star Wars games as a whole are hit and miss, but when they do hit, they hit big. Such is the case with the Rogue Squadron series, which sports fantastic airborne combat and a couple of the best Star Wars games ever. The first two titles in the franchise, Rogue Squadron and Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader, are classics and even Rogue Squadron III: Rebel Strike is a solid game – not counting the ground missions. Where are the sequels?
Good flight combat games have been sparse lately and there hasn’t been a Rogue Squadron game in over seven years. Quite frankly, it is time for the X-Wing to make a comeback. At the very least, this would give gamers enough of a Jedi-fix to hold them over until Bioware releases Star Wars: The Old Republic.
#7. Mutant League Football (Sega Genesis)
Madden and NCAA football games are released every year like clockwork. What ever happened to the more arcade style of football games like NFL Blitz, NFL Extreme, and Mutant League Football? These games were really fun and gave football fans (and non-fans) a more lighthearted alternative.
Maybe EA is content with their two existing football franchises, but a third series based on Mutant League Football would be out of this world. EA had a decent run with the NFL Street games, but there is so much more potential for a successful franchise with a gritty yet fantastical sequel to Mutant League Football.
