I do this a lot: pull out my computer, open up my ripped tracks of ANH, then set "The Battle of Yavin" on repeat. It really adds a lot to the battle and makes it feel a lot more epic. You really can't separate the music from Star Wars, considering it's such an important part of the movies. Has anyone else done this?

Rebel Alliance: 5 X-wings, 2 Y-wings, 4 A-wings, 1 YT-1300, 2 HWK-290s, 3 B-wings

Galactic Empire: 6 TIE Fighters, 1 TIE Advanced, 3 TIE Interceptors, 2 Firespray-31s, 1 Lambda class Shuttle, 3 TIE Bombers

I put on lots of different Star Wars music, but my favorite is using the X-wing vs. TIE fighter game disc in my CD player. The second track is a 20 minute medley of a lot of the John Williams music used in the game. It brings back good memories of playing those video games as a kid, and really enhances the atmosphere while playing the X-wing miniatures game.

 

I'll have to try putting "The Battle of Yavin" on repeat, but I'm afraid it might become boring.

On my iPad I have all three Star Wars original trilogy 2-disc soundtracks, the TIE Fighter soundtrack, and tracks of the battle music from both X-Wing and TIE Fighter.  Along with a playlist with selections from each.  Start it on the iPad, crank up the volume and play away!! :-)

I love the original trilogy music, but when I fly Firespray I love listening to "Bounty Hunter's Pursuit" and "Jango's Escape" from Attack of the Clones. The opening track on the Revenge of the Sith soundtrack is also excellent dogfighting music.

Most all of my gaming is in local stores, so I don't get to set the soundtrack.  But for getting psyched up on my way to tournaments, I pop in the old classic Star Wars And Other Galactic Funk by Meco into the CD player in the Catmobile =^,^=

I play in a friends basement, so we have been listening to a lot of Hank 3 lately.

I'm glad I'm not the only one with an X-Wing playlist. :)

I usually play at FLGS, but play the soundtrack on my iPad.

You could always add "TIE Fighter Attack" (the version without the death of Obi-Wan) to the ANH section, right before The Battle of Yavin and maybe stick Battle Over Coruscant from the RotS soundtrack in between The Throne Room and the Battle of Hoth. I tried your soundtrack out with these modifications and it sounds good to me.

There is an incredibly large soundboard on StarWars.com you can use for both music and sound effects. I actually just played yesterday with a family member and used a soundboard on my phone for effects. It's fun.


Rebels: 3 X-Wing, 1 Y-Wing, 1 A-Wing, 1 B-Wing, 1 YT-1300

Imperials: 5 TIE/LN, 1 TIE/ADV, 1 TIE/IN, 1 Firespray-31

That is awesome!  Though did you see a Battle for Endor in that list?  Would like to get some of the other fighter flyby sounds.

I'm not seeing anything for the Battle of Endor but it does have the Battles of Yavin and Hoth. Take a look, I may have missed the Battle of Endor one.

Got a little sick of Star Wars music after a while, so now I'm in a Mass Effect phase while I play.
