* Technically ''LocoRoco'' is an escort game since you control the planet instead of the character.

[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin As you might expect]], the escort is the entire point of these games. It may not be the premise of the game, but either way you're going to be spending most of your time escorting something or other.

* Lucas Arts' ''StarWars''-themed space combat sims do this just enough to make you really hate it. One of the ''TIEFighter'' [[ExpansionPack expansion packs]] had a mission where you had to escort Darth Vader's fighter. He would insist on joining in the combat, and could be given orders as any other member of your wing. However, actually giving him orders had very bad results as he didn't appreciate it. The most extreme case is probably the first ''VideoGame/RogueSquadron'' game, in which ''thirteen'' of the game's nineteen levels have you escorting, defending, or otherwise having to ensure the continued existence of something.

** Both ''VideoGame/XWing'' and ''RogueSquadron'' will make you hate the Gallofree GR-75 medium transport.

* The ''AceCombat'' series frequently requires the player to escort allied aircraft, usually bombers or transports. Occasionally, you're required to protect civilians, ground forces, or ships. Just as often, you make the enemy fail their escort mission.
