You roll three dice because in A New Hope the trench run attempts were all executed by three starfighters.


Realized that in a game today and I thought that was a really cool and subtle bit of theme.

But only one of them were making an attack run, the other two had the noble job of cannon fodder. I'd recon it has more to do with game balance...

Yeah I don't want to be the wet blanket either but it's probably game balance as oppose to theme.

Destroying the dreams and fantasies of others a way to the dark side it is.

Yes, the other 2 were cannon fodder, but I'm sure they would have taken the shot if Luke bit the dust. I'm with Team UglyMug on this one!

You are investigating whether it has to do with game balance? I reckon that makes sense.whistle

Yeah - I noticed that - I mean, there were switches everywhere - felt a bit tacked on -like the rapidly-opening-and-closing-for-no-apparent-reason iris thingy at the top of the tower :)
