Me too!

I played 3 rounds of it last night..

I played against the owner.
Round 1 2 tie fighters against one xwing with basic R2 upgrade.. Win for X wing/me
Round 2 2 tie fighters against one xwing with basic R2 upgrade (addedd terrain and swapped forces) win for squadron of tie fighters flying in perfect formation then hammer and anvil (me)
Then I took a named Y wing (really slow but synergy and hit points) and a named A wing (could shoot stuff it had by accident hit) against boba fett in a shadow vessel thingy[ edit slave 1] with secondary laser system, shock bomb thingy and one of cluster missile. I got his shields off but he/boba smashed me off the table.

V enjoyable game.. its the expansions that suck you in though.(and apparently some of those, e.g. the millenium falcon is £20+ for the model.. I pretty instantly worked out it wasn't awesome off the peg where as the relatively cheap upgrade to let the wookie fly it was awesome- possibly some balance issues on expansions.
Barely even lurking..
