Quoted from Jediturtle:
Many prem/LE owners will balk at this, but the pro really is a good option. I've played multiple prem/LEs and the hyperloop is a decent gimmick, but to me it doesn't outweigh the issues it causes. The Death Star shot is hard enough without adding a 50% reject rate into the mix, plus the forks kill the flow of the Hoth shot since they can't drop out of the way fast enough. On the pro, both shots are always smooth as butter, 100% of the time. I personally wouldn't trade that for the ability to watch a ball zoom around a racetrack a few times. I also love how the pro handles Hyperspace multiball, with needing to smack the captured ball out of the horseshoe and then lock another one in there. It's a great feeling shot, and still feels special and different than other multiballs. Opinions definitely vary on that, but I would urge you not to overlook the pro. It's an awesome, vastly underrated game either way.
I've had premiums and pros. For me it's just really hard to justify the extra 2k for a game unless it's really worth it. The one game I bought in on the Premium was ACDC. Know what? If I were going to buy another ACDC (I might, that game was great), I'd probably get a pro. I started to avoid the modes that brought you into the lower PF.
I own a SW pro, I've never really felt like I was missing out on something on this particular title.
