Some people reckon Return of the Jedi is the weakest of the original Star Wars trilogy, but the space battle above Endor is one of my favourite sequences from the entire series.

That's why I bloody love Star Wars Battlefront's Fighter Squadron mode. Like the rest of the game modes available it's a little bit shallow, but the purity of the dog fighting experience makes it feels wonderfully authentic. Oh, and we don't have to put up with Darth Vader's dodgy voice acting in Fighter Squadron, either, so that's a bonus.

If you've got Battlefront and fancy taking to the skies in a X-Wing, or one of the five other ships available to you in the Fighter Squadron mode, it may be worth checking out my tips video, below. I run through everything from power-ups to targeting, and ship weapons to strategy. Trust me, it's not a trap.

I can't guarantee it'll help you fly as well as Anakin Skywalker, but it should give you a few pointers on improving your kill count and avoiding taking a proton torpedo to the exhaust port.
