Not too bad. I bought this because I saw my brother in law playing it at Christmas. He is a bigger Star Wars geek than I, which is impressive.

I liked the expansion into space combat. The pilot experience is a far better thing in this title.

It's still chase view, though. I can understand chase view for ground craft, in which you need to see your car to maneuver through the environment. But in the vast expanses of space, chase view just puts an obstacle between me and my target. I keep wanting to yell "get out of the way" at my own ship.

Console games have yet to remove the arcade factor from pilot sims.
