Battle of Yavin & Endor Games
« on: 25-11-2015, 15:11:42 »
When I was little and watched Star Wars, I never wanted to be a Jedi - I wanted to be an X-Wing pilot.

While procrastinating from writing my grad school application, I stumbled upon two Windows games that I used to love, where you can play as an X-Wing during the Battle of Yavin and the Battle of Endor.  They're probably the closest to the actual movies of any games I've played - you have lots of wingmen, but both start getting very desperate towards the end.  I just won the Battle of Yavin by the skin of my teeth.

You can download both from Moddb, they're tiny files.  Really fun, check them out!

PS: I actually wanted to be a Y-Wing pilot when I was little.  They're the Hawker Hurricane to the X-Wing's Supermarine Spitfire, the forgotten workhorses of the fleet.
