The games were built on the Genie engine, the same one used in "Age of Empires" and "Age of Empires II."

An expansion pack, "Clone Campaigns" was released in 2002, adding two new factions and campaigns. Later that year, both "Galactic Battlegrounds" and "Clone Campaigns" were released in a box set, "Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds Saga."

Jake Lloyd reprised the role of Anakin Skywalker.

GameSpot gave the game an 8.2/10, calling it "perfect for a generation raised on Star Wars".

Sev'Rance Tann was created specifically for this game.
