Rebel FM Game Club - Star Wars: Republic Commando - Episode 3 Greetings! Welcome back for our final episode for our series on Star Wars: Republic Commando. We're joined this week by Tim Longo, Director and Lead Designer for the title, who talks with us about the game's inspiration, it's development cycle, and how he feels about it almost 4 years later. It's a great conversation, and I think I speak for all of us when I say this might be our favorite episode of Game Club. We've also got some custom desktop wallpapers for you for Republic Commando at, so be sure to check it out.
