Regular sample points in an irregular polygon

I have a few (very) irregular polygons that I need to place 30 samples within, but I want the samples to be regularly spaced (i.e. on a grid). I could use ESRI fish net and ET Geowizards, but I don't want to be counting out how many points are in each polygon and then resampling and clipping until I find 30. Is there another way around this?

I am running ArcMap 10.2 on an ArcView licence (so any suggestions of Parcel Editor won't work either).

Has anyone tried Geospatial Modelling Environment?
