Sure, in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi the Ewoks may have used rocks and slingshots to take down Imperial ground troops but above, in the stars, the Rebels put everything on the line in an epic orbital space battle against the might of the Imperial fleet. And nothing says sacrifice like piloting the final moments of an A-wing into the bridge of a Super Star Destroyer. An iconic moment that is entirely possible in Star Wars: Squadrons.

Which we found out in our exclusive, deep dive chat with Squadrons creative director Ian Frazier.

“It happens very rarely, and it’s hard to pull off, but it is technically possible in our game to win a match by flying your A-wing into the bridge of a Star Destroyer at the very last minute,” Frazier told us.

And for those that need a refresher, this is what we're talking about.

Naturally the timing needs to be just right, shields down, angles aligned with help from the Force itself. "It doesn’t happen often because of a whole lot of different variables," Frazier adds. "But holy crap is that awesome when it happens."

If I could recreate a SW moment in-game, it would be as Luke jumping down the Cloud City garbage disposal rather than accepting Hayden Christiensen is his dad (understandable, really).
