Star Wars: Obi-Wan is a video game published by LucasArts, one of the release titles for the Xbox gaming console. This game features Obi-Wan Kenobi as a Padawan and takes place in around 32BBY, in the weeks prior to and during the events of Star Wars: Episode I.

At the beginning of the development, the game was intended for a PC release, emphasizing on mouse control of the Jedi lightsaber. However, it was soon scrapped and shifted to exclusive Xbox development, allegedly due to lack of adequate performance on the Microsoft Windows platform.[citation needed] After the Xbox release, the GameCube and Game Boy Advance versions were planned but ultimately cancelled due to mixed internal reviews.[citation needed]

Force Abilities[edit | edit source]

As a Jedi, Obi-Wan has several Force powers available to him.

  • Force Push allows Obi-Wan to push enemies away from himself, possibly off a cliff or into a wall. This can be more expedient than engaging in direct combat.
  • Force Pull, the opposite of Push, allows Obi-Wan to pull weapons out of enemy hands. The disarmed opponent(s) may continue the attack with whatever weapons they may have available.
  • Force Jump allows Obi-Wan to jump several meters into the air, thereby avoiding enemies or finding alternative access routes into enemy installations.
  • Force Saber Throw lets Obi-Wan toss his lightsaber at faraway enemies. The saber will automatically return to Obi-Wan, though he is vulnerable to attack while it is in flight.
  • Force Throw allows him to telepathically hurl inanimate objects at his enemies.
  • Force Focus allows Obi-Wan to slow the game down, for about 6 or 7 seconds.
