LucasArts website - Windows/PlayStation:
    The Star Wars saga continues; this time on the Sony Playstation, PC CD-Rom, or Macintosh CD. Rebel Assault II, the Hidden Empire follows in the footsteps of Rebel Assault, the award-winning best seller released in 1993.

    Featuring original, live-action Star Wars footage, Rebel II hosts a multitude of ground-breaking improvements, including intuitive and challenging arcade game play; fifteen land, sky and space missions; an original Star Wars story; full-Screen high-quality video; four skill levels from easy to hard; a digital John Williams Star Wars soundtrack; and authentic sound effects by Skywalker Sound.

    The story opens in the vicinity of the Dreighton Nebula, where Rookie One is part of a Rebel scouting patrol. He's investigating disappearances of Rebel spacecraft near Dreighton, a region rich with mythology about vanishing spacecraft. Legends of the region go back to the days when early hyperspace travelers lost their bearings and disappeared in the currents, eddies, and storms of the nebula. during the Clone Wars, two opposing combat fleets, at the height of battle, were swallowed up by the Dreighton Nebula, leaving it as the battle's only true victor. Now, pilots uneasily joke about the "ghosts" of those squadrons still roaming the nebula, eager to attack any vessel foolish enough to wander by.
