Bestine is one of the largest static cities on Tatooine. It is considered by the Empire to be Tatooine's capitol city. It contains most city services a city could provide and is a popular landing point for many areas on the planet, because of its central location. New characters who wish to begin an Imperial Pilot career on Tatooine will be directed to the city, where the first Imperial Pilot Trainer for the planet is located.

Bestine is the Imperial stronghold city for Tatooine. Imperials will always be in control of the city, even if Rebels are winning the war on the planet and have control of all other cities. Lower level Rebels are advised to stay away—unless you want to be attacked by Storm Troopers.

Bestine also houses the capitol building for Tatooine. Within the capitol are two candidates who are perpetually running against one another. Players can do minor quests to secure their support for a given candidate and depending on the outcome of the election possibly receive a reward for their support. One example of this reward is a decorative rug.

Architects and art lovers also like Bestine for its museum located near the capitol building. Inside, players can pay for a limited use schematic of a peice of art. The artwork changes on a regular basis, and the schematic typically costs 48,000 credits and has three uses.

Bestine was founded by the inhabitants of the water planet Bestine IV. The city was originally just a farming and mining center until Imperial forces took it over. It is regarded as the most culturally sophisticated city on Tatooine. After the destruction of the Death Star, a political debate soon ensued between Victor Visalis and Sean Trenwell. The city is a place where Imperial and Rebel forces are constantly fighting.

Easter EggEdit

A flag right outside Bestine, the Moraj Memorial, was placed by the game developers of Star Wars Galaxies in honor of Nathan "Moraj_Markinnison" Larkins, one of the beta testers, who died in a car crash in early October 2002.
