The Force is strong with this cosplay

I'd play a Star Wars game starring Jaina Solo

Knights of the Old Republic is easily one of the greatest Star Wars games ever conceived. It took all that we loved with the universe and harkened back on the classic feeling that was desperately void in the cinematic prequel trilogy. But it's not the only part of the expanded Star Wars universe that deserves an awesome video game adaptation. 

Meet Jaina Solo (as portrayed by cosplayer Eve Beauregard) the daughter of Han Solo and Princess Leia Organa. The eldest of twins, this force wielding Jedi possesses the mechanical ingenuity of her father with the force sensitivity one would expect from the granddaughter of Darth Vader.

She also has one of the most epic story arcs in the Star Wars universe with her brother Jacen Solo (do yourself a favor and read the Legacy of the Force series) that would be perfect for a game...or even movie. Quite frankly Jaina Solo would be an awesome character to play thanks in part to her expert pilot skills from her time in the Rogue Squadron as well as all her all-around force badassery. 

Will we ever see a game featuring Jaina Solo or other characters from the Star Wars EU past the original trilogy? Who knows... but at least we can all enjoy an awesome gallery featuring one of the best.

So what characters would everyone else like to see get their own title? Let us know in the comments below.
