I've played both the pro and LE. There are sounds and images from the movie all over it so upon first glance it seems like a great game but this is just a smokescreen for those who expect more. If pinball is a temporary rush and all it takes is to play the Star Wars theme music to make one happy, then this game is fantastic. But for collectors who view each release as a potential work of art they might keep for many years, Star Wars fails on so many fronts. Star Wars fans wanted it to be 100x better and it's just so clear that they cut every corner they could.
When AS was released, I could see there was love put into this game. Great art, toys and decent layout and code. No AS fan would be disappointed. Notice on AS how the art style is consistent between screen, playfield and cabinet. This takes time and forethought and they nailed that. They designed a new main toy and it works too - no easy feat.
Now look closely at SW. Look at the art style on the cabinet, playfield and screen. All different like it was rushed and all done by different people. No one even cared to look at details like this. No new toys designed here and pro has no toys at all(!) which is something quite bold even for Stern.
Look at the mangled mess of the code which almost no one can understand (I couldn't). The blending of all movies into one mishmash without honoring the storyline progression or emotional buildup of the movies. Heck even the professionals players have difficulty progressing through this game. Its beta code not even at 1.0. No other company has balls to sell and release beta code like this to the public never mind for something this expensive.
So again, if you look at pinball as the equivalent of a plastic fork because it just gets the job done, then I agree that SW works just fine. For those of us who expect much much more, SW is a slap to the face of the collector pinball hobby. Maybe I'm wrong and SW will go down as beloved by all but my bet is that collectors are not as stupid as Stern thinks they are and you will see resale prices plummet compared to any other recent titles. Stern has pissed off a lot of people and hurt the collector hobby. We all want them to succeed of course but they are going about things the wrong way.
