So I've been playing this game for a while now and only just realised I may have made a huge mistake.
We've been playing when you go into an engagement, you must come out of it with a focus token on you from striking, whether or not you could actually strike. To put this as an example, Luke goes into attack against an AT-ST commander, dark side wins edge, luke gets tactics'd. What we would then do is put another focus token on Luke, as he has gone into an engagement and so must 'strike' even if he is already exhausted by tactics.
What this has meant in playing is a certain caution when putting in units into tactics fights, just because a tactics icon could potentially remove one of your characters for two turns, due to getting a tactics icon and then 'striking'.
Is this wrong? Have i been playing every game so far terribly afraid of tactics icons for no particular reasons?
I only say this as for a joke I drunkenly pretended to read the rule book, and page 22 has an example of a fight, in which Vader and Red five are both tactics'd and neither get double focused for being tactics'd and then 'striking'.
