Expanding Fronts is a massive modification for Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds aimed to breathe life back into the classic LucasArts strategy game by adding various new units, features, and gameplay elements. Each of the 8 civilizations is being split into various Sub-Factions that specialize in unique combat roles including Infantry, Armor, Aircraft, Navy, Support, and Economics. Each of these Sub-Factions will have a full roster of new units and technologies available to them. In addition, the Scenario Editor is being filled with hundreds of new units, buildings, effects, and objects to allow campaign and scenario designers more freedom than ever before.

Possibly one of the most ill-thought out strategies out of the entire Clone Wars. Apparently Dave Fiolini's never heard of flanking or that going in head first is likely to get the most casualties...

Eh, it was no stupider than any of the other battles in the prequels.

Not like losses matter anyway when you've got a nigh-infinite army of disposable meat puppets.

I don't know... it takes a special kind of stupid to ignore WWII tactics in a franchise influenced by WWII movies, amongst other things.

Jedi can't be cloned practically, and the same goes for making new Clone commanders. That's actually one of the few things they covered in the TV series that made sense, as while you can definitely clone as many soldiers as you want -- getting them in fighting condition is not as likely. That's why Stormtrooper clones were so ineffective -- they ended up having to recruit mercs and farm hands because even they could shoot better than clones made within six weeks time.

...wow, did not realize I still retained all that.

Thinking about anything in Star Wars (especially post-1983 Star Wars) for more than 3 seconds causes the entire premise to collapse. Best not to worry about it too much.

Ultimately, our goal here is just to make a fun mod, with something for everybody. Personal feelings about the overall universe are largely irrelevant.
