Playability: 3
This map is essentially a flip of the author's previous upload - you play as the Empire instead of the Rebels. An effect that could have been easily accomplished in the first by simply changing your player number to '2' in the game setup screen.

Either way, this is an asteroid-based Build & Destroy. Like the previous one, it's decent, but not too different from a typical skirmish.
==========

Balance: 3
The rebels put up a better fight than the Empire did in the previous scenario, although their role is strictly defensive. The AI doesn't seem to know how to expand from their starting asteroid, so once their main resource stocks deplete they simply pose no threat to you.

This does mean that if you wait too long to attack the rebels you'll have to break through a pretty hefty wall of Anti-Air defenses, which can be pretty tricky - especially if you're playing vanilla GB and don't have the benefit of Air Cruisers.
==========

Creativity: 3
Like the previous scenario it doesn't really accomplish much that a normal RM game wouldn't. The center of the map hold numerous animals and holocrons, but without any real competition with the AI over it it just turns into easy income.
==========

Map Design: 2
My previous review still stands here. Slabs of rock with carbon, and slabs of metal bordered with light walls. Not very pretty. Although this time there's the added detail of me actually discovering the central 'island'. It's a haphazard mix of rock, sand, trees, and grass with scattered Naboo props, holocrons, and animals. It's certainly different. Unfortunately that's not enough to really kick up the score.
==========

Story/Instructions: 4
Essentially the same as the previous. Very clear, and very expansive, but not really implemented at all when it comes to gameplay.
==========

Additional Comments:
A fairly simple scenario that manages to be kind of enjoyable. Not bad.
