Star Wars Episode 1 (and Revenge From Mars as well, I think) is a pinball 2000. From what I understood when these first came out, is that they are using a low-end PC to do the logic and displays. In fact, I heard from a friend in the industry that they were prone to crashing because for some unknown reason, they decided to use Cyrix processors!
