This scenario came up in our last game between me and my friend.
I had Grand Moff Tarkin, an Advisor to the Empire and a Tie Advanced defending against my friend's Home One and A-Wing. I won the edge battle and went first with Grand Moff Tarkin, placing a tactics on Home One and taking him out of the battle.
My friend wanted to use a Double-Strike to remove the focus token on Home One and attack again on the same objective but I said that you cannot since I believe Home One did not focus to strike since he was taken out of the battle pre-maturely due to the tactics from Grand Moff Tarkin.
Was I right in my ruling? The game was down to the wire, I had 11 on the Death Star dial and my friend needed one more objective to win the game. Please help!
