You're right, the fact that FFG have delayed it a year hopefully means they've ironed out any problems and made it to suit PvP perfectly. Even though I won't get it I look forward to seeing it in action at some conventions.
I made a post a few months ago now after watching Empire, where the feeling that you get when watching the entire Battle of Hoth sequence, in particular "The first transport is away", really grabs you in to the Rebels' struggle against the Empire - at that point in the film, you're cheering them on, and hating the Empire to your core. Throughout the trilogy, too, you're not meant to like the Empire, you're following the Rebels and their cause.
I know I'm going off-topic, but I'd just like to say that I had always rooted for the Empire and loved it when they stormed Hoth! ;)
