X-Wing Scum and Villainy Review
Recently, I started playing X-Wing against someone who really knew their Star Wars. They knew that Howlrunner was a female pilot, and where the YT-2400 freighter originated from in the expanded universe. They also told me something interesting: that the Hutts and their criminal networks were a faction equal in power to the Rebels of the Empire. What looked like a footnote in the films was actually a major player in the galaxy.
I concur with the balance comments, I didn't find any power creep at all. Some new tricks and slick abilities, but nothing overtly strong or decisive.
Boba Fett as well as the Z-95 pilot that works best on his own suited up with Lone Wolf and Cluster Missiles seem to be my two favorite ships thus far.
