Fleetwood Mac is awesome. I once paid $20 to have "You Can Go Your Own Way" played in a dueling piano bar for my birthday. It was worth it.

This isn't so much a response for Michael, more everyone else who would [wrongfully] get a bad impression of Imperial Assault.

JOSH LOOK'S FIVE SECOND REVIEW: IMPERIAL ASSAULT EXPANSION PACKS

The expansion packs are fun. The campaign content might be too late to the party (though there is that new campaign box coming out), but I'm actually glad they didn't put this stuff in the core game to save a bit on an already expensive price. This way I can pick and choose what I want to buy, as I'm only interested in characters from the movies and the select few from the EU that I care about (there aren't any yet, but I can dream). If you're a campaign player, you'll likely want to skip these, but picking a few up might change your mind on the skirmish game (which I was warming more and more up to before the expansions dropped), as what little they add does go a long way.

Okay, back to Barnes.

I'll get more into it when I actually write them up, but I do agree with you Josh about them improving the skirmish game- mainly because the command cards add a little more dimension to it and they are actually new content. I would much rather they just boxed these up all together and sold them as a $40 "extension" than in these silly individual packs with a figure and barely a handful of cards.

Imperial Assault is probably the most I've ever played a game I don't like that much, which is kind of weird. I can't say that I've warmed up to it, but I don't hate playing it and when my friends want me to bring it over I don't really mind. But I'm not excited about another session either.

We've been skirmishing more than campaigning lately, and that's really kind of fine with me. It is still kind of irritating that squad builds are fairly limited at this stage and I find myself thinking about buying some more of the "common squad" figures to give at least a little more variety. Probably won't, probably will just wait until the full expansion and add-ons there.

Would really love it if they would release a co-op expansion with an AI and also a special add-on pack that makes the game more like Star Wars.

A co-op expansion with Al huh?

Just because Al is lighting cigars with $100 bills, while Buonocore gives him a hand job, is no reason for them to go into business with him. Al is an aging hippie whose demented ideas will not help a SW franchise at all. I hope this idea is dropped and fast.
