[From the back of the box (NES edition)]:
Only the people who made the movie could bring you this much action and adventure… Control your favorite Star Wars heroes—Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia. Enlist the help of Obi-Wan Kenobi, C-3PO, and R2-D2. Outfight and outsmart the intergalactic bad guys—stormtroopers, jawas, Banthas, bounty hunters, sinister droids, and more. Explore the spectacular worlds of Star Wars—from the Tatooine Desert to the Mos Eisley Spaceport to inside the Death Star. And if you get very, very good… destroy the Death Star and save the Rebel Alliance from Darth Vader.
