Star Wars Humble Bundle offer is the crazy deal you’re looking for

starwarshumblebundle kotor
The latest Humble Bundle of deeply discounted games for charity is one of the best yet, featuring a selection of classic Star Wars games for a pay-what-you-want donation.

Donating anything at all nets you BioWare’s classic role-playing game, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, along with the 2003 action game Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, and the 1995 first-person shooter, Star Wars: Dark Forces.

Pay more than the average donation ($11.50 at time of this writing) and Humble throws in Star Wars Battlefront II, Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith LordsStar Wars Republic Commando, Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, Star Wars Starfighter, and Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II.

Finally, bumping your donation up slightly higher to $12 gets you Star Wars Empire at War: Gold PackStar Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition, and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II.

That is nearly every Star Wars game of note from the last 20 years, totaling up to $137 retail individually, which means for $12 you save over 91-percent. That should give you plenty of Star Wars-related gaming to fill the remainder of 2015 until Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens arrives on December 18. The return of Star Wars: Battlefront is also slated to launch around the same time.

As always, donors can choose how their money is distributed between the developers, charity (UNICEF), and the Humble tip jar. Head over to the Humble Store to pick up the Star Wars bundle, which will only be available until the end of this week.
