An infamous RTS game created by LucasArts, it was largly based off of Age of Empires, and was considered the better Star Wars RTS of the time (Others bieng Rebellion and Force Commander). Despite its age and aged appearence, it still has a small but loyal following at Heaven Games, which hosts a vault of tools which make modding the game a rather simple task.

You dont if its a commercial game like this, that would be illegal, unless they made you pay then it would pretty much turn into Steam. If a game is up for download for free here then it would be in the games Downloads section.

Not entirely true... it wouldn't always be illegal if the producers and owners gave it to your for free, even for commercial.

they used the same tech tree too. the technologies are mostly the same as in aoe. you have the same scout and other units too just in a SW look.

I can kick EaW AI's *** easily. Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds can rip you a new one on Medium. Space Battles are too much a focus (for both mods and vanilla EaW), and land battles in EaW feel more random attrition.
