Star Wars: The Old Republic has been officially recognized by Guinness World Records on the heels of the game’s launch December 20th. In the latest Guinness World Records 2012 Gamer’s Edition the franchise's second major massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG) is awarded for an unprecedented feat. The game, developed by BioWare with LucasArts and EA, boasts a record-breaking effort as the Largest Entertainment Voice Over Project ever. More than 200,000 lines of recorded dialogue were performed by several hundred voice actors, making it a far more ambitious recording project than any undertaking for a feature film.

This record is included in an eye-popping two-page spread that pays homage to 30 years of Star Wars gaming with fun facts, figures and new records from the storied franchise.  The spread also takes a look back at all the games created since the 1982 debut of The Empire Strikes Back for the Atari 2600 to issue its own special Top 10 list of the world's best Star Wars games.
