Anyone else feel that Tauntaun and Hoth Scout's icons and game text should of been swapped? 'Sacrificing' a tautaun to shield a card (get it?) and then having the scout provide a resource since a scout provides information.

I see your point, but I wouldnt necessarily say it was a goof.  It is kinda funny how similar a scout and a tauntaun are =).

Not a goof.  The Scout is a character, which can be Choked.  Tauntaun is just another non-chokable resource for the LS.  

 

Darth Vader can defend an attack against a Y-Wing.  FFG isn't too worried about flavor.

They are worried about flavor, but not in the sense that every engagement is literal fisticuffs between the units involved. Even so, Vader could totally defeat a Y-Wing in the obvious sense. Maybe he throws his lightsaber, takes out one of the Y-Wing's engines. Or he uses the Force to pull it to the ground. Or he chokes the pilot.

Good point. But I think it's really only one specific Tauntaun that was used like that. It's still a resource however you use it. But yeah. Would be cool to slice one open with Han and Luke on the board.

Tauntaun can be Force Choked.
