I have played it, but I personally like the West End Games version better and rather use the new minis in the old game.
Bob (Bobafett14) is playing it though, or tries to when we have a meeting, so that's one... If "Blue Harvester" is who I think he is, he too is playing it, or at least as much as Bob is.
It's a good enough game. You guys should try playing some time, but I like combat games between "armies" more. IE: Squads of troops, larger forces on a table, little more "military" feeling than WOTC's game. WEG's version was tailor made for combat with troops. "Heroes" were a secondary aspect to the game that was possible but not as important.
Generally the hero was a squad sergeant or something.
Some guys snuck in Han leading a group of commandoes, or Luke or someone as a "goal" to be rescued or some crap.
I haven't even bought a set myself. I bought commons from some local guys just to army build. That's the extent of my minis buying. Can't find them for a price I'm pleased with paying though.
