    I also see some swoops in the ANH-SE which seem reminiscent of the SOTE swoop riders.

    Yes, and you can see a swoop gang in TPM aswell.

    The Sentinel landers from the SOTE game are also in Mos Eisley in the ANH SE.

    I also seem to remember the old Databank saying that Lucas dictated that Xizor's look should be based on the Dashade...anyone else remember this?

    This is what was written in the behind the scenes section of Xizor's Databank entry:

    Finished looking through the 'Secrets' book - nothing more to report really. Actual mention of GL (as opposed to Lucasfilm) was pretty sparse. But now I have an urge to read the novel again.

    Thanks for looking through it. It's strange that there isn't a source for those supposed Lucas claims. I can't find an interview during that time regarding SotE.

    Most sources claim that Lucas said that he would make a film about SOTE if he could in an interview in the 90's. Unfortunately, it seems it was in an interview that was never recorded. Too bad. Sure, it opens up conspiracy theories, though I'm fairly inclined to believe it.

    I believe in it aswell, but I would still like to source it. ;)

    Hmm. I wonder what I was thinking of, then. I'm almost positive it was somewhere from the old OS.

    Ah, Shadows of the Empire. So, so, so nineties it somehow managed to have a mullet and acid washed jeans.

    I always loved Dash Rendar:
