Rogue Squadron is also the name of a third person 3d fighter game for the N64, where you take command of an X-Wing, A-Wing, Y-Wing, Speeder, or what not, and complete several very difficult missions. It takes off of the storyline mentioned above, as you pilot Luke through the game.
It's quite an excellent game with elements of both Star Wars and Descent. The graphics are quite impressive, and are further enhanced by the memory module for the N64. Rogue Squadron is for one player only. It was produced masterfully by LucasArts.
