Star Wars Saga Timeline:
2.5 - 3 ABY
As the sequel to Rebel Assault (available on PC and Sega CD), Rebel Assault II: The Hidden Empire once again pits you as Rookie One as he aims to play hero of the Alliance for a second time. His adventures will take him through 15 stages of action that includes several styles of play. Along the way, he'll even team up with his old friend Ru Murleen as they work together to end Vader's plans. Don't expect appearances from other Star Wars movie characters, though. This game is totally independent of the films' continuity, its only recognizable characters being Vader, plus brief appearances by Emperor Palpatine and Admiral Ackbar.
Rookie One begins his quest in command of a B-wing as he navigates the Dreighton Triangle, a legendary place where ships have mysteriously disappeared for the past 40 years; most recently, three Rebel X-wings. Here, he'll blast away at TIEs, which he'll also do later (along with dodging a few asteroids and other obstacles) in other types of ships, like an X-wing, Y-wing, and even a secret new Imperial vessel. He also must proceed through challenging courses while piloting a Millennium Falcon-like Corellian freighter, training how to fly a TIE figher, and whizzing by on a speeder bike through a swampy planet.
Aside from flying a variety of vessels, Rookie One will also face Stormtroopers with his trusty blaster in hand. To truly replicate the experience, you have the option to operate a light gun for these missions instead of aiming with a standard controller.
In between each mission, you'll view a live-action cut-scene to help move the story along. This footage represents the first newly recorded Star Wars-related material since 1985's television movie Ewoks: The Battle for Endor.
