I've Got a Bad Feeling About This...
"Swell," you shout, as you lead your team through the blazing building. "First pirates attack us, then lizards arrest us, then a blasted Imperial mining Droid almost eats us!"
You stagger from a wave of heat. "We've raided warehouses, whipped marines in bar fights, fought battles in sewers, and blown up outposts. Now we're chasing a bunch of lunatics through an abandoned Imperial garrison on a planet under a sun about to go nova!"
Suddenly your partner, the Smuggler, yanks you to the ground as a blaster bolt slams into the wall above your head. "So, what's your point?" he asks coolly.
"Well, joining the Alliance to defeat the Empire is great," you mutter, "But how come we never get an easy job like blowing up a Death Star or something?" The Smuggler grins slyly. "Oh, didn't I tell ya..."

Star Wars Roleplaying Game (Second Edition, Expanded & Revised)
This edition is often confused with the earlier (1992) blue-covered 2nd edition. Furthering the confusion, The Star Wars 2nd Edition, Expanded & Revised was printed two ISBNs: 0874314356 or 087431268X. I haven't noticed any real difference between them other than the ISBN on the back cover, but I can confirm that I have sold SW2E&Rs of each ISBN.
