I'll be snapping this bad boy up tonight A-Sap. I fancy treating myself to Star Wars Trench Run too. I wanna be a 10-year-old again! That's great Luke, don't get cocky! Gold Leader standing by...(yes, I guess I am a nerd).

Why does every Star Wars game on iPhone feel like a placebo?

Well said. I'm getting this one anyway, but it would be great to see a fully-realized Star Wars game on the platform. Seeing that The Force Unleashed II on the big consoles is a dud, perhaps this is easier said than done. I'd love to see an X-Wing remake.

In the meantime, we have
Galaxy on Fire 2 (space fighting and trading, Han Solo style)
Wings of Glory (multiplayer dogfighting, X-Wing Vs. TIE Fighter style)
Star Pagga (needs more players! get in there)

And you can easily make a Canadian iTunes account to try the freemium Star Wars: Imperial Academy game (Eliminate with a new skin).

Star battalion is probably the best star wars clone available.

FYI, it is out in everywhere now.

I hope it would like Trench run where new contents will be added later via update, in the current form, I guess it may get old a bit too soon (and AR is not as hot as some think), I would wait for a price change....

Actually, I'm having fun.
Graphics are decent, the original music is running, cut scenes from the movie are cool and I can shoot X-Wings in my bathroom

I don't get why they can't make the game playable on older devices without the AR functionality. I get that the AR is the main feature of the game, but even if I had a 4th gen iPod Touch, I would much rather shoot TIE fighters with the Death Star in the background instead of my bedroom walls.

Doesn't sound like this one's knocking anyone's socks off.

Too bad, I really enjoyed trench run. I have a feeling shooting Tie Fighters on my bathroom wall would get boring after about 5 minutes though.
