Conclusion: I don’t know what else they have up their sleeves, but these three tables were more then enough to get me absolutely salivating at the idea of more Star Wars content. Zen Studios has shown they know what to do with licensed content, and maybe next time, they’ll let us blow up Alderaan, or even the Death Star… or just fire silver projectiles through a Jar-Jar Model.

Excerpt: When I was given the opportunity to review Star Wars Pinball by ZEN Studios, my inner geek was hyperventilating like Lord Vader after climbing four flights of stairs.
