Shadows of the Empire wasn’t always a Star Wars game. In an interview with Game Informer, co-project leader Jon Knoles revealed that after wanting to take a break from Star Wars, the team “started kicking around this idea of a western with this new machine we heard Nintendo was making.”
Everything changed after Nintendo reached out to LucasArts about making a Star Wars game for what would be the N64. The Big N was interested in something new with original characters.
