Why Fallen Order is So Great

Before Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was first released in 2019, Star Wars fans were crying out for a game that hearkened back to the old era of Star Wars games when the likes of Battlefront and The Force Unleashed were popular.

Enter Fallen Order. The announcement of this game drove Star Wars fans wild, and fortunately, the reception of it was just as positive.
