Hey look at this! More great old Star Wars games back when Star Wars games were pretty good and not terrible disasters.

Used to play this one a lot when I was younger, it's pretty good. It's no Jedi Academy or Tie Fighter or KOTOR, but lord is it better then that piece of crap game they served up last year or whenever that was. Maybe we'll get Republic Commando too!

Did you ever do the thing where you set it up with two controllers and use the sticks Katamari Damacy style?

No I did not know that was a thing. Can I do that on the N64?

I know I saw this game in arcades but never actually played it there.

So, I only remember reading about this in 90s Nintendo Power, could've been an unsubstantiated rumor but they tended to get their facts right. Apparently there is a fairly simple cheat code you enter (I think at the title screen) which enables two-controller mode on N64 (each stick corresponds to each engine, I think the Z triggers are separate airbrakes as well). You might need to research this a bit to get it to work, but I'm pretty sure a buddy of mine actually did it back in elementary school, so I believe it's possible.

That sounds like fun, I'll have to give it a try!
