* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' began with an OpeningScroll briefly detailing the Maquis guerrilla war against the Federation and Cardassians, then cut to Chakotay's ship, involved in a running lightfight with a Cardassian destroyer. The whole sequence looks like a ShoutOut to ''ANewHope'', except Chakotay's ship ''escapes''.

Not as common as the others , due to SmallReferencePools: World War II movies filmed ''during the war'' regularly opened with a War Was Beginning recap.

* ''Warhammer: Mark of Chaos'' begins with the rolling map illuminated by small explosions and fires, with the narrator describing the state of affairs in the Empire defending from the Chaos invasion. In a bit of a twist the main war is already over, and the game is about a local war with a splinter force.
