Regardless of whether you ever plan to purchase Battlefront, the card/boardgame included in this companion app is surprisingly good and one of the best Starwars strategy games I've played.

I've seen a very similar boardgame, which really lends itself well to solitaire play and this kind of app. And while enemies are mindless, they are relentless as the advance on your base. From the initial wave of probe droids until the nearly invincible AT-AT's appear on the horizon, levels become increasingly challenging as stronger, more capable enemies show up. Supposedly, you can unlock tow-cables in the primary game to make the walkers a bit more manageable. Regardless, they can still be destroyed with the starter deck, with careful use of your units and complimenting abilities. I still haven't made it past the level when Bobba Fet arrives and unleashes his bag of tricks. Not sure how far it goes, or whether DV eventually makes an appearance, but it almost makes me want to play Battlefront, not to make use of the bonuses I'm banking, but to unlock new cards for this app. Seriously, don't hesitate.

3rd that. EA Access allows 10 hrs of play starting 11/12 at 1 p.m. EST, whatever that translates to everywhere else. This will be fun to fill the gap afterwards, and as stated above, bank. Pew pew!!

This is a standalone, as it has it's own game. But if you happen to be in the market for Battlefront, there's the added perk of gaining coin for that game. Plus, the planet breakdowns they show with vids are cool in their own right. The card game here is actually pretty cool.
