26. All those early-Nineties Nintendo games we couldn't beat
North America got its first dose of Star Wars console gaming in eight years with the 1991 release of Lucasfilm Games' team-up with JVC for Star Wars on NES. Reception was lukewarm (ha), but many fans enjoyed the gameplay variety – at least until they died. Over and over again. Things only got harder with The Empire Strikes Back a year later (pretty much impossible without a turbo button), while the trilogy of Super Star Wars games to follow on Super NES arguably showed even less mercy. Maybe there's no better way to fully appreciate what the Rebel Alliance pulled off other than to fail and fail again at it yourself.
