If you've ever wondered what a full-on battle between legions of Jedi Knights and Sith would look like, this video is a must-see.

Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron. The popular Battlefront saga continues on handheld platforms as Elite Squadron comes to the Sony PSP System and Nntendo DS this Fall. The single player campaign follows a deep original story that spans the entire Star Wars saga, while the game also offers an endless source of pick-up and play action.
