Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Republic Heroes was a 2009 Star Wars: The Clone Wars video game for PC, Wii, Nintendo DS, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Playstation Portable, and Xbox 360. With the exception of the Nintendo DS version, the game was developed by Krome Studios, who had previously developed the versions of The Force Unleashed on PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, and Wii.

Set between Season 1 and 2, the Galactic Republic discovers that the Separatists have created a superweapon that may turn the Clone Wars in their favor, and it's up to our heroes to stop them.

The DS version was instead a loose adaptation of episodes from Season 1 and 2, developed by Lucasfilm Animation Singapore, who also worked on the show.

Republic Heroes was released on October 6, 2009.

Tropes in this game include:

  • Adaptational Heroism: In both versions of the game, Cad Bane is subject to this, being made an enemy of the Separatists. In the main versions, he's forced to do an Enemy Mine with the Republic because he got on the Separatists' bad side (he found one of their cargo and was unaware of its true value to the Separatists — it being a superweapon), and in the DS version, he's captured by the Separatists because he knows vital information that the Republic wants, resulting in Kit and Padme being sent to rescue him.
  • Call-Forward:
    • The gravitic polarization beam was first introduced in an X-Wing comic.
    • Padmé's home, Naboo, is threatened by a world-destroying superweapon created by the bad guys, just as her daughter's world will be.
  • Mythology Gag: Unlockable hats included helmets of Delta Squad and Starkiller.
  • Shout-Out: One of the unlockable hats was Indiana Jones' hat.
  • Superweapon: The Separatists have created a gravitic polarization beam, a superweapon that can rip matter apart on a molecular level. In the climax, it gets installed on Behpour, a planet in Naboo's solar system, so that it can destroy Naboo's sun.
