Out of all of my games we have in our bar Star Wars is, of course, one of the most popular due to the title alone. However, one of the absolute most frustrating things about having it in our line up is that people CAN NOT FIGURE OUT HOW TO LAUNCH THE FRIGGIN BALL! Does anyone else have this problem with this game on location or when people play yours? It gets very tiresome having to constantly walk over and show people how to launch the ball. People never seem to even pay attention to the "Press button to launch ball" prompt on the DMD, and even more completely ignore the video skill shot. I wish there was a way to replace that shifter handle with a simple launch button.
It seems that new people to the game are less and less inclined to figure out how to play the games and just get frustrated and walk away unless someone is there to explain it. I even noticed on the new Black Knight Sword of Rage, there is a full on instructional video on the screen of how to insert a coin, press start, plunge the ball and flip the flipper.... ::sigh:: Has it really come to this?
