In Star Wars X-Wing Alliance, LucasArts’ new space-combat blaster for PCs, players finally get to fly the beloved Millennium Falcon into battle against the Galactic Empire. But while settling into Han Solo’s pilot seat is definitely a thrill, there appear to be a few amenities that LucasArts has inexplicably forgotten.

TEN ITEMS WE WOULD HAVE PACKED

10 Five-ton bag of Wookiee litter

9 Imperial Easy-Bake Oven (roasts two Ewoks in three minutes)

8 Kegs of Lando Calrissian’s favorite Bespin brew. Who needs the Force when Colt 45 works every time?

7 Intergalactic 8-track compilation of K-tel’s The Galaxy’s Greatest Hits, including: ”Darth Vader Eyes,” ”OK Android” and ”The Miseducation of Anakin Skywalker”

6 Toilet

5 Four-ounce jar of Scale-So-Soft Emperor Palpatine Facial Cleanser

4 Box of ”Jolly Vader” Jawa-flavored candy sticks

3 Martha Stewart’s Guide to Cleansing the Galaxy of Rebel Scum

2 Dagobah Press best-seller Big Force, Little Saber: Yoda’s 101 Love Tips of Tiny Jedi Masters
