The 20 B-List 'Star Wars' Characters That Made Their Way Into Games

From 'TIE Fighter' to the upcoming 'Battlefront II,' not all recognizable 'Star Wars' game characters debuted in the movies

Debuting in a 2000 Dark Horse story arc called "Twilight," Aayla Secura proved so popular in the years to come that George Lucas brought her to life in Revenge of the Sith's Order 66 sequence (where he also brought her to death).

No other non-DLC playable hero in the original Battlefront II featured less screen time in the Prequel Trilogy than Secura, but that didn't stop Pandemic from selecting her. "We knew she was a fan favorite, but it was mostly her scene in Episode III that made our decision," says Gewirtz. "Since we had already made Felucia, we figured having the Jedi that fought on that planet made sense as a playable character. Also, badass Twi'lek Jedi equals no-brainer."

We haven't seen much of Secura in games since, though she often popped up to some degree in most games based on The Clone Wars, including Lego Star Wars III and Disney Infinity 3.0. She somehow missed the cut for the original Lego Star Wars, but Traveller's Tales made up for the oversight in Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga
