This is a very simplified Build & Destroy scenario. You start at Post Tech Level 4 with a decent-sized army, and a large stockpile of resources. Your only objective is to destroy a well-defended Naboo base. Unfortunately there isn't much fun to be had here. Since you start with everything maxed out, your role is reduced to churning out units until you end up winning.

Balance: 4
As simple as the scenario seems on the surface, it certainly isn't easy. The enemy base you are tasked to destroy is packed full of fully-upgraded turrets that can wreck Assault Mechs in moments. Royal Crusaders, Mounted Troopers, and Jedi Masters also prove to be a massive headache for your troops and mechs. If you are playing with the Clone Campaigns expansion, you have the added misfortune of dealing with enemy Air Cruisers. You need a well-managed and diverse army in order to win, which is the best thing this scenario has going for it.

It's essentially a Random Map game started at Post Tech 4, the only change being a massive enemy fortification. Nothing unique or even noteworthy about it.

Map Design: 2
I'm a little confused about this. The terrain almost seems like a Random Map... but if so it was a very unfortunate one. Large amounts of flat, empty grass; sharp, random slabs of elevation; Oddly placed, random rivers; it's a mess. Normally a Random Map warrants a 3 by default, but the extremely poor luck behind this draw knocks it down a peg.
==========

Story/Instructions: 1
The 'story' is written in what looks like German. Even if I could understand it, I don't think I'd be missing anything considering the entire entry is only one sentence long.
==========

Additional Comments:
A Random Map missing everything that makes Random Maps fun. The only real positive aspect is the challenge involved with actually breaking the enemy defenses, but there are far better scenarios available that can provide an equal, if not superior experience to that end.
