Right off the top of my head I can immediately think of two sci fi novels that involve refugees in a major way
as literature, sure. as a game, I'd pass.

I have ripped off both for scenarios (Downbelow Station and an awful lot of other CJ Cherryh stuff is ripe for inspiration, and I am a big fan of Peter F Hamilton's various sci fi universes).

MegaTraveller Hard Times involved many adventures involving refugees - come to think of it ther are adventure shorts in The Traveller Adventure that icmclude refugees.

In TNR I remember a game dealing with refugees from a Vampire Fleet attack that required PC help to establish themselves - I wanted an excuse to use World Tamer's Handbook

Come to think of it one of the PCs in one of my Hard Times encounters was a refugee...

Then ther is Battlestar Galactica and the adventure that kicks off a brand new campaign setting for MgT The Fall of Tinath both of which are based on refugees.

T2K is effectively a refugee game. Armed and with vehicles, but essentially a refugee game all the same.

feature refugees
feature, not star.

well I suppose life in a camp could be interesting in its own small-scale way. bribe the cooks for more soup, hunt rats, smuggle in cigarettes ....

Ok, involving refugees front and center - you are twisting my poor choice of words.
