Got a 1.48 Billion Hyperspace Hurryup in the game I just did where I finally beat the Emperor (and destroyed the Death Star before that). I have no idea how I got such a huge hurryup - there's still a lot of stuff I don't understand about scoring interactions and stacks on this game. I know I was 40x, but I've been that before with Hyperspace Hurryup and didn't have anywhere near that.
Also, I liked the final battle, but it seemed like it needs a LOT more callouts to make it epic, and once you win, it needed some celebratory footage or animation or something once the Emperor is toast and Vader is good again. Just wrapping around to pick a new character was kind of anti-climactic. Hopefully Dwight gets some time to go back with his team and polish that up a little.
But yeah, for Star Wars, Premium/LE is DEFINITELY the best experience. 100% sure of that now.
