The Original Trilogy

For those of you old-school Star Wars fans, these first set of maps will be right up your alley, going back to where it all started.

Tatooine (Mos Eisley)

Be careful while venturing into the Mos Eisley Cantina, where you’ll bump into a wretched hive of scum and villainy, and who knows, maybe old Ben Kenobi can help you save the day?

Mos Eisley Spaceport: Obi-Wan Kenobi warned Luke Skywalker that he’d never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy than Mos Eisley spaceport, and he was right. The famously lawless port on the surface of Tatooine was home to Hutt servants, rogues and smugglers of all species, lowlifes and fugitives, and desperate people trying to make a living any way they could.

Be sure to don three layers of those fancy parkas because the sixth planet of the Hoth system is cold this time of year. Also, don’t forget the Skywalker lightsaber, which could help you against lurking predators.

Hoth is the sixth planet in the remote system of the same name, and was the site of the Rebel Alliance’s Echo Base. It is a world of snow and ice, surrounded by numerous moons, and home to deadly creatures like the wampa.

Yavin IV

A planetary moon with a rich, even Dark (Side) history, Yavin IV will be one of the most fun surfaces to explore. Just watch out for those pyramid shaped Holocrons or dark passages that might cause you to stray from your path.

One of a number of moons orbiting the gas giant Yavin in the galaxy’s Outer Rim, Yavin 4 was a steamy world covered in jungle and forest. It was the location of the principal rebel base early in the Galactic Civil War, and the site from which the Rebellion launched the attack that destroyed the first Death Star.

Bespin (Single Player Only)

The beautiful city in the clouds is one of great importance in a galaxy far, far away. We can hope that during this portion of the game that the Falcon will be at our disposal, to make this journey complete. You better hope Lando doesn’t make any deals with the Empire or your campaign adventure will end prematurely.

Secluded from galactic turmoil by its location in a little-visited sector of space, Bespin is an astrophysical rarity. An immense gas giant surrounded by a number of moons, the planet contains a band of habitable atmosphere among its endless clouds. The most well-known of these ventures is the opulent Cloud City, formerly under the administration of Lando Calrissian. During the tail end of the Galactic Civil War, the Empire garrisoned Bespin and took over Cloud City.

Endor (Single Player Only)

The sanctuary Forrest moon is one that will allow you to hide from your “enemy” in waiting. Plus, if you can get a few Ewoks to team up with you, your foe does not stand a chance.

Secluded in a remote corner of the galaxy, the forest moon of Endor would easily have been overlooked by history were it not for the decisive battle that occurred there. The lush, forest home of the Ewok species is the gravesite of Darth Vader and the Empire itself. It was here that the Rebel Alliance won its most crucial victory over the Galactic Empire.

Death Star II

Relive the Rebellion’s crushing defeat of the Empire, by going full-throttle on a trench run for the ages. We can hope for a character expansion back so you can play as Wedge or even Lando.

Hoping to crush the Rebellion once and for all, the Empire began construction of a second dreaded Death Star near Endor. But the project ran behind schedule; Death Star II was only half-finished, and the Emperor himself visited to oversee its completion.
