** Also as the above video covers, Factor 5 attempted to make an UpdatedRerelease compilation of the Rogue Squadron games for the {{Wii}} titled ''Rogue Leaders'' that contained a number of new features, such as a two-player lightsaber battle mode and rebuilt mechanics for the disliked on-foot missions from ''Rebel Strike''. However, Factor 5 went bankrupt about halfway through development, but continued working on the game in secret. When former employees found out about the deception, they sued for fraud. While the game was done at this point, Lucasarts decided not to publish it as they feared being drawn into the lawsuit.

* KillerApp: ''Rogue Leader'' was released at the launch of the UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube, and its amazing visuals and gameplay led it to outsell even Nintendo games in some markets. In some European markets, it even managed to outsell ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosMelee'' during the Gamecube's launch window.

After ''Rebel Strike'', they started concept work on a spin-off focused around [[VillainProtagonist playing as Darth Vader]] called ''Star Wars: Dark Squadron'', but Lucasarts turned it down in favor of an action game featuring Chewbacca...[[ShaggyDogStory which itself would be cancelled due to George Lucas hating the idea]].

Originally meant for the original {{Xbox}}, several factors led it to be developed for the {{Wii}} instead. However, Factor 5 went bankrupt about halfway through development. They secretly shunted much of their assets and some employees to a new company dubbed White Harvest and continued work, but former employees found out about the deception and sued them for fraud. While the game was effectively done, Lucasarts decided not to publish it as they feared being drawn into the lawsuit.
