Five words that may make your day: Star Wars meets Tower Defense.

That's Star Wars: Battle for Hoth in a nutshell. The game combines obvious elements of Tower Defense with one of the franchise's all-time greatest action sequences.

In other words, it's up to you to defend Echo Base against endless hordes of droids, snow troopers, Imperial AT-ATs, and the like.

To do that, you'll deploy infantry, towers, snow speeders, and even X-Wings.

The game spans 15 levels and offers two modes of play: Classic and Fortress. It also treats you to clips, music, and sound effects from "The Empire Strikes Back."

You might expect a high-profile title like this one--especially with "Star Wars" in the title--to cost at least $6.99, if not $9.99. Surprisingly, Star Wars: Battle for Hoth sells for just $2.99. That seems like a very reasonable rate for a geek-tastic twist on the Tower defense genre.
