I bought the set of Star Wars tiles that WotC released, mostly out of curiousity to see their quality and how generally usable they are. I was rather pleasantly surprised.
I was initially hesitant because I don't like to use battle maps unless necessary, but I figured that it might be an easier way to handle them than to have to draw and redraw on a big, erasable battle mat.
You know what...it is. They have proven to be quite handy for whipping up a battle mat on the fly (takes less than 2 minutes or so to arrange the tiles into an interesting configuration). They are thick and very sturdy and the color and design are good quality. And the Star Wars tiles are all double-sided with different illustrations on each side for adding different elements to your map. Very nice.
The only down side with the Star Wars tiles is that they are all for "interior" locations. There are no tiles representing outdoors encounters. There are, of course, generic "gray" tiles which can be used for any kind of situation, and they work just fine in that regard. I'm hoping that a future pack will include some "exterior" type tiles.
All in all, for your money, they are a good value if you intended to use "grid-based" combat in your games.
