Well since this game has been (for all intents and purposes) abandoned by the developers, 1.3 beta is all you've got.
If you want to take advantage of the improvements of 1.3 over 1.2, then you have to use this. You want the framerate cap removed or Droideka/Darktrooper balanced, this is your only choice.
It sucks, but that's how it is... I agree they should release a "final" patch but so far they've shown no indication that they will do so and it's been a long enough time.
I guess the only people who have an excuse now are those with incompatible versions...
