- Star Wars: Battlefront – PS4 / Xbox One / PC – 2015
- LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga – PS3 / 360 / Wii / DS / PC – 2007
- 2006 LEGO Star Wars 2: The Original Trilogy – PS2 / Xbox / 360 / GC / DS / GBA / PSP / PC

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga It’s not in the top 10 best selling games, but it’s actually the fourth best-selling Star Wars game of all time, behind Star Wars: Battlefront, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, and Star Wars: Battlefront II. LEGO games tend to sell out in the long run, the source points out, so over the next few years LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will likely be in the top 10 games above.
In general, Star Wars is The sixth most successful video game epic in the UK, calculated from 1995 to the present (physical games only). To give you a point of reference, this puts the Disney saga above Pokémon, The Sims, Assassin’s Creed, and Need For Speed. The top five spots are instead occupied by FIFA, Call of Duty, Mario, GTA and LEGO.
In all of this, however, a number of factors must be considered. Newer games have had less time to sell, but they often don’t count digital data, so it’s plausible that acts like Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order are already in higher positions. The benefit of this ranking is also to see which of the older games were more successful.
Speaking of the near future, Star Wars Jedi Survivor is almost here and EA asks not to give spoilers to those who pre-obtained it.
