A TILTForums link leads to Pinside which has a detailed analysis of Star Wars (Stern) opening gameplay by user “Hoochoo”.
Why is Leia so strong in the beginning of the game? What do you exchange for this potential strength?
This is VERY detailed down to specifics of point awards for shots made.
(This is more for me to have a convenient place to look to get back to this dedicated work that Hoochoo has done. I hope it helps you as well)
