Bought Rogue Squadron II on the same day as my GameCube, but I haven't played it much because I can't even get past the first level, the attack on the Death Star. Specifically the Trench Run, where I either faceplant into one of the crossbeams or get shot down by the pursuing TIE fighters. If I slow down to avoid the barriers, I get chased down by the fighters. If I speed up to get away from the fighters, I run into something very solid. Finally gave in and peeked at the walkthroughs on GameFAQ. Turns out that I had to brake when the fighters are incoming and let them overshoot me. Was that in movie? Because I don't remember anything like that in the movie. We need Episode IV on DVD, damn it. Of course, now that I got past the first level I'm breezing along through the levels, although the Star Destroyer is proving to be a bit of a challenge to take down.
