Hmm... I didn't know about Top Gun. I really, really have my heart set on BSG (I'm a sucker for old school BSG in concept, if not in execution), but if I have to, I'll settle with Last Starfighter.
Does Top Gun have a solo mode? I'm not sure thematically how that would work.
Don't get me wrong - BSG is VERY cool. The others came later and expand on the number of manuevers vehicles can use. They're just different variants based on the same system.
Actually, I think Top Gun *does* have a solo mode, but it might be from a magazine article instead...
