The thing that briefly rekindled my enjoyment of Star Wars was Knights of the Old Republic. That game felt so much more like Star Wars than anything in the terrible prequels. I even decided to try running a KOTOR RPG campaign with the second version of the d20 rules. I chose…poorly. Should have stuck with the old WEG game. That campaign crashed and burned in less than two months. Since then I’ve heard from a lot of True20 fans who have used those rules to run Star Wars games. True20 didn’t yet exist when I tried the KOTOR campaign though.

The current set has a lot of old school ships, X-wings, Nebulon B’s, Corvettes etc. It gives me flashbacks to the old X-wing video game which along with Mechwarrior 2 is probably my favorite video game of all time.
