    I don't know but it seems that almost every time I go, I'm in another Pod race on Tatooine.

    What I love most about rivers is you can't step in the same river twice. The water's always changing, always flowing. But people, I guess, can't live like that. We all must pay a price. To be safe we loose our chance of ever knowing what's around the river bend. -Pocahontas
    You're braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. - Christopher Robin, Winnie the Pooh

    You try. You fail. You try. You fail. But the only true failure is when you stop trying. - Madame Leota, The Haunted Mansion
    We are not thriving. True, our people live, but our culture is dying. We are like a stone the ocean beats against. With each passing year a little more of us is worn away. - Princess Kida, Atlantis: The Lost Empire

          The two aren't mutually exclusive.

              The odds of getting the same ride combinations each and every time: 50%. Either it will happen, or it won't.

                Here's the deal regarding randomness and probability: You're not factoring the fact that each time you re-ride, you have to go back through the queue. In other words, the ride is totally random, but the starspeeder you get on doesn't remember what your last ride was. It's already gone through 10-15 sequences (or even more) since you left, so it's very likely you can get the same sequence under those circumstances.

                Now, if you sat in the same starspeeder and didn't get off and rode it 10 times in a row, aside from that being totally awesome, you would probably see a more randomized series, as you are "rolling the dice" back to back. And when you add in having 4 gates, the mathematics behind the probability of a particular scene are much more complex than a simple 1 out of 3 or 4. I don't even want to think about what that equation would look like.

                However, that doesn't stop me from getting upset lol. I have yet to see Kashyyk (rode about 15 times so far) and the last 5 rides I ALWAYS got the pod race. It's getting to the point where I strain ahead to look at what planet is coming and tell myself "oh no, oh no, please don't be yellow, please don't be yellow, damn!". Its so strange, but it has ruined the ride for me much more than having the same "adventure" every flight. Oh well, literally nothing you can do about it except ride it and try to have fun (even though I've never been to Kashyyk and only been to Naboo once)

                    I usually get Vader/Hoth/Yoda/Naboo though sometimes I get Vader/Tatooine/Yoda/Naboo. Been on the ride 10+ times and never have gone to Kashyyyk, Coruscant, or the Death Star...
