''Star Wars X-Wing Alliance'' takes you for a ride -- What EW would pack for that trip through a galaxy, far, far away
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.
