well, there was the x-wing/tie-fighter/jediknight/... games based off the star wars games which were pretty dang good back in the ol' days.

wing commander & the old starship troopers game (the squad based RTS, not the moronic FPS) also come to mind. although those were not made after the movies. (the wing commander movie was made after the game & the ST game+movie were made after the books)
