Then again, Luke sold his beater of a landspeeder for 2000 credits and claimed he got ripped off. 2000 seemed like a good deal, considering if I was looking at a car that was in that shape I wouldn't pay $300

Math is why I'm a Liberal Arts major.

OH yeah, either way a TIE is still going to cost an assload of star wars money. It IS high end military hardware, even the basic TIE. The people that wrote the EU stuff ignored how well they performed in ANH (and their apparent shields they sported).
Heh. Okay. (I can't say I remember all this stuff, I just saw what I took to be errors in your reasoning. )

I noticed the EU writers ignored other EU as well when they made TIEs really weak; c'mon, they can be torn apart by wind? Huh?

Anyway.

Yeah its not like we haven't ever seen the flying around in the upper atmosphere of a gas giant. Oh wait. We did. And the Empire cares so little for its pilots they didnt' fit the TIEs with ejection systems but somehow that one guy punched out in the Empire Strikes Back. Woops!
