Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron is the third entry in the Star Wars: Battlefront series of video games, first released on October 9, 2007 in North America and later in Australia and Europe. The game was designed as a PlayStation Portable (PSP) exclusive and features the eponymous Rebel Alliance covert ops unit Renegade Squadron, who are currently non-canon in the post 2014 continuity and have been relegated to the Legends Continuity. Renegade Squadron was one of the first games available in a bundle pack with the newly released PSP redesign.

The single-player campaign follows the exploits of Renegade Squadron from its inception by Han Solo throughout its operational history, until its dissolution after the Battle of Endor. During play the Renegades participate in several battles, including those of Yavin and Hoth. The game also features several types of multiplayer modes. In contrast with previous titles in the series that require characters to have a set class, players in Renegade Squadron are able to build their character as they see fit.

Renegade Squadron received a mixed reaction from the video gaming community. The game was considered superior to its predecessor (the PSP version of Star Wars: Battlefront II) and it was praised for its customization options and online play, but the single-player campaign was criticized for being brief and shallow. Opinions on the graphics were mixed, and the controls were generally described as inadequate.
