  • Not going to play this game ever but it is certainly very refreshing to see things from the good guys point of view. Kinda reminds me of the TIE Fighter era on pc. Actually a 1:1 remake remaster of that one would be ace... not going tohappen but dreaming is free.

  • To anyone who doesn’t know why the rebel said “War’s over, imp” These are Remnants, the faction of the Empire for what’s left over from the war after Jakku, (the empire’s end basically) they remained loyal and still fought for the little that was left for the Empire, like good soldiers. If you wanna know more, even if it isn’t “disney canon” There have been numerous comics and amazing novels to read on the Imperial Remnants, and what they did after the war, some defected And most remained loyal, but then there were also neutralistic ones similar to Jedi Outcasts where they would stay on one planet and lie low with a new life they started.

  • I love 4:10 to 4:14 shot. I love it some much because it's possible that there is a camera or visual sensor installed on the wing of the Tie Interceptor. It grounds the scene and makes it appear more gritty and realistic. It's sorta similar to how Halo Reach used cameras from its world to ground its characters and story. Bravo!
