Unlike in the Star Wars Trilogy, this game came out second. Also, it's not vector graphics like the other two.

Unused Sounds

Dialogue from the movie has been synthesized to the POKEY sound chip for this game. However, there are several clips that go unheard...

Sound Dialogue
Leia: Han...
Leia: ...hurry!
Lando: Don't worry, my friend's down there! He'll have that shield down on time.
(R2-D2 sound)
Red 3: Three of them coming in, twenty degrees!
Luke: Stay here!
Luke: Move closer!
Luke: Get alongside that one!
Luke: Leia?
Luke: Wait-!
Lando: That was too close.
Lando: Watch out. Squad at .06.
Stormtrooper: Go get 'em.
Stormtrooper: Stop 'em!
Stormtrooper: Let's go!
Lando: The shield is still up.

Unused Music

The majority of this section is music left over from the original arcade game, with the exception of the last one, which was obviously synthesized for this game but not actually used.
