Just as in Star Wars Battlefront II, you'll encounter "Hero" units, familiar characters from the Star Wars compendium like Han Solo, Chewbacca, Obi-Wan, Darth Vader and even Dark Forces star Kyle Katarn. Heroes make more than just fan-friendly cameos; they'll make a difference with killer moves that turn the tide of battle.
Balancing this much content could be tricky, but the developer, Petroglyph, contains key members of the original Command and Conquer team. These guys know how to make a smash-hit RTS. And the demo version we've played confirms this. The interface and controls already feel great ... just like Beggar's Canyon back home.
