One interesting question concerning a "classical" combo :
Leia Organa :
If this unit leaves play, it is captured by your opponent at any dark side objectives of his choice.
Interrupt: When this unit leaves play, remove all focus token from all cards you control.
If I use a card (You're My Only Hope, Covering Fire…) to sacrifice Leia, is she really sacrified?
When a player is instructed to sacrifice a card, he
must choose and discard a card in play that he controls
and that matches the requirements of the sacrifice.
If the chosen card does not leave play (i.e. if it is, for
example, saved by an interrupt card), the sacrifice is not
considered to have been made.
For me, the sacrifice works because captured cards are out of play, so the constant effect on Leia's card respect the sacrifice rules. The final destination of the card has changed (objective and not discard pile) but the out of play state is still applied.
Am I right?
