Some re-releases of the game were packaged with a special "Making-Of" CD-ROM which featured hours of footage from the shooting of the live action scenes. Highlights include co-star Tom Wilson engaging in a mock lightsaber battle with Mark Hamill and several other cast members making fun of Hamill's Star Wars past. During one dramatic scene, Mark Hamill exits the room as scripted and once he's gone, Tom Wilson turns towards the camera and says: "Isn't that the guy from Star Wars?" See more
