Playability: 2
You can judge a book by its cover on this one: it's another scenario featuring the Gungan Army against the Trade Federation in a big Grass 1 field. (Actually, the name is deceptive, since the Royal Naboo aren't in it at all). There isn't much to say about playability on this, since it is what you'd expect with two armies facing off against each other in set ranks.

Balance
I asked my little sister (age 8) to play this scenario. Despite the fact that she is completely unfamiliar with Galactic Battlegrounds, she defeated the Trade Federation hands-down (with of course some minor helpful hints from yours truly). As long as Player 1 doesn't rush his/her full army right into the Trade Federation, it's an easy-win, and no challenge whatsoever.

Creativity
I wish I could say more for creativity, but I can't. It is based off of the Gungan Army vs. Trade Federation from Episode I, and there are no unique elements to it. (I remember making a similar scenario when I was brand new to SWGB, and I was shocked how much this was exactly the same).

Map Design
The map consists entirely of a big empty Grass 1 field with Palm and Redwood trees surrounding most of it, and Shallows to represent the swamp randomly placed a good distance behind the Gungans. There's nothing to it, not even the hills in the movie scene, or the ancient Gungan artifacts that are also seen in the film. It's unoriginal, and there isn't much to it.

Story / Instructions
It's pretty self-explanatory, again because it was taken right from the film. The extent of the dialogue in the scenario itself though was limited to Captain Tarpals quote at the beginning: "Wesa fight to Death," a line that, in my opinion, is somewhat cheesy, even for a Gungan.

Overall
I admit that the creator of this scenario becomes the victim of my prejudices against scenarios that are constantly overdone again and again. It seems that every month or so, someone will come out with a Gungan vs. Federation scenario, none of which are ever particularly good. This one, I'm afraid, is no exception.
