It all adds up to a very powerful fleet and army, easily a match for anything the Rebels or Imperials can muster, even with a few new units like TIE Defenders and B-wing bombers.

Unfortunately, the ground game is still dominated by extremely powerful heroes (Zaan, for example, can bribe any non-hero unit) and visually pales in comparison to the space game, where EAW continues to shine. At least you can skip any non-essential battle, land or space, with the "auto resolve" button.
