I suppose, since we're just talking about starfighters from the OT, I can't mention my ALL TIME FAVORITE STARFIGHTER! The TIE Defender: sexy, fast as an A-Wing, great shields, laser and ion cannons, hyperdrive, and missiles! In the old game TIE Fighter
, it was far and away the best of the lot, with only the Missile Boat able to compete.
But - heave sigh
- since I can't mention that, I'll have to go with Darth Vader's custom TIE Advanced x1. Fast as an Interceptor with shields and hyperdrive, wooooooooooooooooo! Plus it's a TIE - that means it looks cool.
Next favorite are actually three I can't choose between: X-wing, B-wing, and TIE Interceptor.
