Angry Ewok- Regarding the technology issue, if the Empire's technology wasn't superior, would they be building things like Super Star Destroyers, gigantic, Super Lasers capable of destroying large starships and even planets , and Interdictor Cruisers equipped with gravity well generators?
   I could say that Mon Calamari Starships were not ideas of Rebel Scientists (as they were built by the Mon Cal, even some Mon Cal ships were being used in the Clone Wars), but not all Imperial ideas were those of the Empire. (Some scientists were forced against their will to design and build things for the Empire)
   Now, on the topic of shields and hyperdrives in ships, the Empire used them in some small ships, but like you said, not in fighters. The Empire deployed their TIEs in swarms to overwhelm enemies and use speed and pilot training to defeat enemies. Since no shields were on Imperial fighters, this was most likely due to the cost of added shield generators versus the cost of new pilots and fighters. The shields were probably more expensive. Different strategy and budget issues on the Empire's part, most likely.
   Now, if you are referring to just the movies in your argument, then you win hands down. EU opens up a whole new ball game, especially if you incorporate video games.

Jesse James- Yavin is used in Battle Front 1 and 2 in the form of stopping escaping Rebel ships and an infantry attack on the ground. It also appears in Galactic Battlegrounds, where you must fight your way to General Jan Dodonna on the ground after the destruction of the Death Star.

George Lucas Stormtrooper and Republic Commando Set came in the mail today. My armies grow ever stronger.

The idea of sieges coming up in Clone Wars makes me think the Empire can't just waltz in and squash ANY world they want.  EU really helps flesh that notion out too a bit.

   Well, in the Clone Wars you had two armies that were around the same size, strength, and technology level facing off against each other.(I think that it's due to Sidious wanting to keep the war going and the factions strength close to equal) The Separatists, especially during the Outer Rim Sieges, were digging in and fortifying their planets with the intent of withstanding Republic attacks. Therefore, Republic strikes turned into sieges spanning several months, like the battle of Saleucami.

   When the Empire was in control and fighting the Rebels, they had superior technology and armed forces. To capture most planets, all they really needed to do was march a few AT-ATs in to destroy ground defenses, and send in Storm Troopers and other units to capture the major cities/towns. Even though the Empire may have had a hard time taking Kashyyk and Mon Calamari, they decimated Rebel bases on Yavin 4 (after the Death Star blew up) and Hoth (Okay, so the Rebels weren't really ready for that one.) If the Empire tried, I believe that they could take over any planet they wanted, either with fear, superior numbers, firepower, and/or technology on their side. Holding a planet, like Kashyyk, is a different story.     

Hey megaass, go take you trolling somewhere else. CHEWIE's a great guy, and I don't know why the hell you feel the need to pick on him.

Anyone still playing? I have the game with the clone campaign upgrade and still throw it in occasionally

I don't play it too much now. It will most likely be a rare occurrence to see me playing it now that I've gotten Empire at War. Battlegrounds used to be my favorite game before Battle Front came out.

i played it on news years eve, my wife was sick so i just played.

in other news the msn online playing option is gone, they finally closed it, if anyone wants to play just message me and I'm always up for a ip vs ip game.

I may have to take you up on that offer sometime. 

One of my local Targets has reduced it's number of pegs from 16-24 down to 6-8. Now, it's packed with figures that nobody in my area really wants.

Saw all of the first wave of these guys today en mass at a local Wal Mart. I held off on buying all but four figures. Want to save some money for the TAC.

I got a Fifth Fleet Security Clone, a 442nd Siege Battalion Clone, a Battle Droid 2-pack, and a Camo Super Battle Droid today from Wal Mart.

I got Sun Fac, an Utapau Clone Trooper, Snowtrooper, Obi Wan Kenobi (Naboo), Hologram Darth Maul, Rep Been, Naboo Soldier, Moff Jerjerrod, a Death Star Gunner, and the Podracer 2-pack from two trades last week.

One Target in my area put out a case of these for half off. I passed on all six, as I refuse to add Purple Clone Troopers to my collection.

   Does anyone know what this figure is supposed to be:

   Is it a variation of the clone Sergeant? The figure from the Saga Legends line? If anyone knows anything, please let me know. Thanks.
