Yeah, that seems like a good idea, but dont' discount X-Wing: Alliance too, if just for the single player experience Brad.
I also recommend Jedi Knight, Mysteries of the Sith, Jedi Outcast, and Jedi Academy (And Dark Forces too, if your PC can still play it).
Do them in order (Dark Forces would be first), so as to see the true storyline for Kyle, and DEFINITELY download custom levels made for Jedi Knight and Mysteries of the Sith... I can give you links to some and they 99% of the time have a readme file to explain how to install them (they're really simple to install manually though).
I've played custom levels on Jedi Knight and MOTS that blew away the Lucasarts levels, and Jedi Knight's still regarded as one of the most "Star Wars" games ever.
Actually, if your'e gonna play X-Wing: Alliance, I suggest getting the Win 95 versions of X-Wing (and it's expansion packs) as well as TIE Fighter and its expansions.
The series, played in order, is dated looking (like the Dark Forces series), but it's awesome... Has a 100% Star Wars feel to it from start to finish.
There's no multi-player for some of those... X-Wing, TIE Fighter, Dark Forces specifically are all single player games. X-Wing: Alliance is MP though and considered quite good. I say skip X-Wing Vs. TIE Fighter though... XW: Alliance was meant more as a fix to the flaws of XvT.
