Posted By Mike on May 23, 2010

I know it's kind of flown under the radar, but did anyone realize that The Empire Strikes Back has turned 30? Well, those across cyberspace sure noticed. If you'd like to take a few minutes away from your Star Wars saga tribute of a weekend (that of course includes the ForceCast Empire Commentary), we present a list of links to some fun Empire anniversary coverage...
