The game really gets interesting, however, when you register a hit. Instead of automatically knocking a piece off your opponent's ship, the game takes you to a dual-screen shootout between your X-Wing and a rival Tie-Fighter, asteroids drifting in the crossfire. The champion of the duel determines whether the shot counts or not.
All it needs are some StarFox-esque scripted chatter during the combat -- we've already come up with a few possible examples:
- Han Solo: "You're all clear, kid! Now let's blow this thing and go home!"
- Gold Five: "It came from... behind!"
- Admiral Ackbar: "It's a trap!"
