Star Wars Rebellion (known as Star Wars Supremacy in the United Kingdom and Ireland) is a real-time strategy game released in 1998 by LucasArts and set in the fictional Star Wars expanded universe.

Reception[edit]

The game received poor reviews according to the review aggregation website GameRankings.[2] Next Generation stated, "LucasArts should start looking more closely at what it slaps the Star Wars brand on, as consumers will be less likely to forget or forgive."[10]

According to PC Data, the game was the U.S.' 18th-best-selling computer game during the January–November 1998 period.[13]

The game won the award for "Most Disappointing Game of the Year" at GameSpot's Best & Worst of 1998 Awards.[14] It was also nominated for "The Underachiever Award" at IGN's Best of 1998 Awards, which ultimately went to Trespasser.[15]

Macworld saw LucasArts' 2006 game Star Wars: Empire at War as a successor to Rebellion.[16]
