While this map is visually okay-looking, it just lacks in a lot of areas. As the author mentions it's very empty. Many the ceilings are huge, but the rooms themselves have little in them. It definitely has a minimalistic feel to it, and a little eye-candy wouldn't have hurt. It's hard to like a map that's nothing but wide-open rooms and wide-open corridors. I suppose that leaves plenty of room to fight in, but something more than an occasional potted plant might make it a bit more interesting.
Personally I felt there was just too much in the way of surfaces. With ceilings that were well over 100 feet tall (proportionally) in some areas, it made even a decent texture look repetitive. The map is well-lit throughout - sometimes too well-lit in areas, and while every light seems to have a source there also seems to be a bit of global lighting throughout the level as well. Perhaps not, but it certainly gives that feeling. The fact that this very much non-Star Wars feeling map had very Star Wars music also just didn't quite feel right. No bot support has been included, which is a shame.
Don't listen to me, though. Judge from the screenshots and try it out yourself to see if it's your kind of thing.
