I spent most of my free time in high school playing SWG and losing myself in the universe but growing older I find Star Trek has more colorful plots even though their aliens are silly charicatures in comparison. TOS even had an episode where some people could channel "The Force".
I've lost a lot of respect to George Lucas reading how he took all the credit for the first trilogy when it was his wife who made the movies emotionally engaging in the editing. I'm not quite sure if J.J. Abrams can deliver something more than a CGI extravaganza.
Star Wars has so much potential for dark themes and 'gritty' cityscapes. Imagine if Oliver Stone or Tarantino would make something like Natural Born Killers in the Star Wars universe based on Tales of the Bounty Hunters. It could probably only happen if someone Kickstarted it :(
I still fire up the 360 arcade remake OutRun Online Arcade every once in a while. It has a charm that really appeals to my boyhood dreams and I don't care if the game offends anyone. Unfortunately I think Ferrari pulled the license after it lapsed so it isn't for sale anymore.

I well try to mention some games that have not already been listed. Thanks to the other posters for highlighting some games I didn't know.
I love Test Drive Unlimited because you could buy cars and garages on a life size (I guess) replica of Hawaii. It was a ground breaking open world driving game (before Burnout Paradise I might add). The sequel Test Drive Unlimited 2 was slightly disappointing because the first one was so great but I enjoyed it anyways (truly unique exotic cars that you can test drive, buy and customize). Unfortunately it probably didn't sell well because the studio closed.
