Pretty basic. Simply kill all of the bad guys. Or at least get rid of enough so you can take out the leader. It doesn't get much deeper than that, but it's still pretty enjoyable.
One complaint I have, however, is that at the beginning of the scenario, most of the units in the police station would form into a platoon and start looking for enemies. I personally had to edit the map to keep them from moving.
Not too difficult, so long as you don't rush headlong into a group of enemies. There were enough medics scattered around the cities to keep your health full the majority of the time; but slipping up could cost you.
Another issue: I was able to walk around the back of Mos Espa (If I remember correctly) and kill Keft from the other side of the wall without ever having to enter the city.
These sorts of open-world complete at your own pace maps are rare, and I personally like the genre. However, this is pretty limited in terms of what you can do, and I didn't really feel like a police officer, more like a bounty hunter. The concept is great, though. If this isn't the final version, I can see it doing very well.
Map Design: 3
This sort of disappointed me. The cities were adequately designed, but the buildings often felt clustered and random. It's also to be noted that this doesn't utilize Clone Campaigns, meaning that in addition to not having the larger variety of Tatooine buildings available, I captured every one that I approached.
The Desert could have been a bit more attractive as well. Less red desert (fits better as Geonosis) and some random jawas/creatures would be nice. I would suggest having a look at the Mos Espa level of The Phantom Menace campaign for a good example of Tatooine. In addition, you should really try to find a copy of Clone Campaigns, or Saga. The building options are greatly expanded, as well as the civilian choices. Personally, I would have made most of the map a city, with the bare desert being the gangs HQ. But whatever suits you works.
There wasn't too much story, but the instructions were clear enough so that I knew what I was doing as soon as I read them. That can end up working both ways due to the missions being pretty simple in the first place.
The ingame text felt rushed. By that I mean that it seemed like you packed as much information as possible into 1 or 2 text boxes instead of separating them into smaller segments. There was also little time to read everything.
I see a lot of potential in this. With some more work, it'll be great.
I also noticed myself in the campaign; thanks!
Good work, comrade.
