Wil,

OK– So I can handle not getting an extra life until 2000 points (you barely even need it then, really), but what I wanna know is this: how can one not be fucking sick of this game by then??

Also: do you think that the inevitability of losing is meant to reflect the Rebels’ futile mission to protect Echo Base against such an awesome show of firepower from the Imperial forces?

Have a good weekend,
Jason

PS – What’s your all-time high score on ‘Empire’?
