What’s new here
In Star Wars Republic Commando, you’ve got your trusty blaster rifle and your squad of elite clone troopers at your side. The game adds a tactical layer to the first-person shooter genre with squad commands. You may not have played Star Wars Republic Commando, but you might recognize Delta Squad from the TV show Star Wars: The Clone Wars in the episode “Witches From the Mist.” Fun fact: this is the first appearance of a clone commando unit in that series.
Of course, that’s not the only connection Delta Squad has to the Star Wars universe at large. Boba Fett, Jango Fett, and fearless Delta Squad leader Delta Three-Eight have all been voiced by Temuera Morrison, who recently reprised Boba Fett’s role in season two of The Mandalorian.
