The best pack Pinball offeres. All the tables are relatively easy, especially the Vader table and Starfigher assault ones.
The voice overs are very good, movie-like, and what I like most of all in these tables, are the mini-games taken from the movies scenes, like fighting Tie fighters, and the hoverbike chase (very hard).
Highly recommended.

Awesome three table pack.

STARFIGHTER ASSAULT - very controllable table with a lot of modes and missions, many of these start quite easily. Epic space battles take place on the table, so at some multiball moments it's slightly difficult to see what's happening, but it only makes it fun :) Overall score: 9/10

DARTH VADER - one of best tables, easy to learn and fun to play. Overall score: 9/10

RETURN OF THE JEDI - the table has really cool design and some cool modes and missions, but it is spoiled by the fact that you lose ball easily. The slingshots are very strong, the gameplay becomes very fast at some moments and you feel that it's somewhat random, not fully under control. Overall score: 6/10

Even though I don't enjoy the "Return of the Jedi" table as much as the other two, the pack is definitely worth buying.

WARNING: Since May 12, 2015 you can't play this anymore without accepting a disgusting EULA which essentially changes this into spyware. They even did it after the fact to anyone who bought it when there was no EULA at all (which is illegal at least in Europe). They promised a solution, but never gave one, even after four months have passed now.

This pack includes one of my favorite tables, and the other two are fun as well. I strongly recommend it.

Darth Vadar - This is the easiest of the tables in this pack to play. It has a moderate speed, and few of the shots are particularly difficult to hit. The modes are not too difficult and the slingshots are not very powerful, though it can be difficult at times to determine where you should be aiming for. The color is simple but effective in a combination of Greys, Blacks, and Reds that is highly evocative of Darth Vadar's framing in the movies. This table is mid-line as far as scoring is concerned. All in all, this is a decent table that gets overshadowed by the other two tables in the pack. Overall Rating: B-

Return of the Jedi - This board shares many similarities to the previous Empire Strike back table, so I'll be making a lot of comparisons to it. This is the most difficult table of the pack. The slingshots are very strong and the ball feels like it has a lot of bounce to it on this table, much like the Empire Strikes Back table. The flow is good, but the table plays very fast. A number of the shots are difficult. The secondary modes are good, bordering on excellent. The primary modes are not quite as good. The theme works pretty well, but doesn't integrate as well as the Empire Strikes Back table. This is a low scoring table. Overall a good, but challenging table. Overall Rating: B

Starfighter Assault - One of my favorite parts of the Star Wars movies is the starfighter combat, and this table brings that in spades. The theme is great, with X-Wings and TIE Fighters dogfighting above the table (which can sometimes be distracting), Star Destroyers fighting Calamari Cruisers on the edges of the table, and bumpers as Turbolasers firing each time they're hit. That said, achieving anything on this table seems to take one or two steps more than it should. There is also a disappointing tendency for auto-launched balls to drain down the middle. Otherwise the table is highly controllable. This comes at the cost of flow, which is only mediocre. It's easy to catch and hold balls and control speed on this table. The center ramp that changes its destination is very well implemented. This may not be the best table that Zen has made, but it's one of my favorites. This table is on the low side of moderate scoring. Overall Rating: A-

The best star wars game we've seen in many years. No, I'm not being sarcastic. Of all the Pinball FX2 tables out there, Starfighter Assault is definitely still my favourite. The other star wars tables in the other packs are all quite excellent as well.

Of course, something wonderful Zen Studios has done for us - you can try them all for free... so go try it!

Zen Studios should be proud of their latest three additions to the Pinball FX2 family.

Each table has a unique slant on the Starwars universe, from the ewok-infested forests of Return of the Jedi, to the speed of a Starfighter engaged in aerial assaults, to the disturbing evolution of Lord Vader and his dastardly plots.

The sound effects and sound bites are so immersive. Another addictive offering to consume those gameplay hours.

These tables are alot of fun! (And that's coming from someone that have seen the Star Wars series like once, long time ago and not even in English, so the tables can't offer me what they can offer to star wars fan) Alot of great game modes, that had me say "am I still playing a pinball game?", the tables themselves are designed really good and while they can't beat South Park tables for me (because unlik Star Wars, I am a "hardcore" South Park fan), I would still recommend these to anybody.

A must buy for Star Wars fans. Everything from the sounds to the game missions make these tables one of the best pack in the roster.
