If you’re a fan of both Star Wars and the Big Bang Theory, you might have noticed the characters playing a Star Wars game in one of the episodes. But what game were they playing exactly?

The Game

The game featured on the show is called Star Wars: The Old Republic. It’s a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) developed by BioWare and released in 2011. The game takes place thousands of years before the events of the Star Wars movies, during a time when the galaxy was in turmoil and different factions were vying for control.

The Gameplay

Players can choose to be on either the Galactic Republic or Sith Empire side and create their own character with a unique backstory. They can then explore various planets, complete quests, engage in battles with other players or non-player characters (NPCs), and customize their character’s appearance and equipment.

The Reception

Star Wars: The Old Republic was highly anticipated by fans of both Star Wars and BioWare’s previous RPGs such as Knights of the Old Republic. However, it did not receive as much critical acclaim as its predecessors and struggled to maintain a consistent player base.

Despite this, it remains popular among Star Wars fans who enjoy immersing themselves in the galaxy far far away.
