I'm all for a remake of the game/s. Star Wars Battlefront 2 has incorporated space into it... but I'd like to see missions like in the XWA and Tie-Fighter series of games rather than just an add-in that is basically the same mission over and over no matter what map you're playing.
Have you tried Rogue Squadron and StarFighter? These are prolly the closest you'll come to modern graphics and flying missions. It's not exactly how The x-wing tie-fighter games were.. but close,
