* TemptingFate: ''Forces of Corruption''. In the Hypori story mission, Tyber Zann and Urai Fen try to take over control over a factory and the droidekas it manufactures. After fighting their way to the control console:
-->'''Urai''': I have set the factory to manual, so we should have no more surprises.
-->'''Bossk''': <The enemy bounty hunter clicks off the safety on his weapon while standing right behind them>
-->'''Tyber''': You were saying?

** Of special note is the ''[[VideoGame/ThrawnsRevenge Thrawn's Revenge]]'' mod, which simulates five different eras of the StarWarsExpandedUniverse (which are progressed by killing the Empire's leader (which is usually [[NintendoHard mind-damagingly hard]]) or just set in one era, depending on whether you're in the grand campaign or one representing a particular period), re-scaled fighters to their proper size (and into being full squadrons, and making almost all non-corvettes into TheBattlestar), and added all kinds of land and space units and heroes, ranging from pocket carriers to multiple types of [[MileLongShip Super Star Destroyers]], all with lore-friendly armament (for example, the T2-B is actually an effective anti-infantry tank now). While it gets rid of the GameBreaker Zann Consortium, it more than makes up for it with the fully featured Empire of the Hand HiddenElfVillage, as well as the Pentastar Alignment let by a warlord trying to StartMyOwn [[TheEmpire Imperium]]. Minor factions include [[ComicBook/XWingSeries Warlord Zsinj's]] Imperial splinter faction, the [[AbsoluteXenophobe Yevetha]] [[Literature/BlackFleetCrisis Black Fleet]], and the [[LadyLand Hapes Consortium]].

* VideoGameCrueltyPotential:
** When playing as the Empire, you can use the Death Star to [[EarthShatteringKaboom destroy entire planets]]. Many of these planets have large sentient populations, and some of them are otherwise loyal to the Empire despite being under Rebel control. This includes Coruscant, which has a population of over a trillion.
** The Zann Consortium being able to enslave planets' inhabitants to use as CannonFodder aside (among other forms of criminal activity), the Ewok Handlers are this trope embodied as a unit. Their M.O. is to carry around captured Ewoks in a large sack before siccing them on a target as suicide bombers.

** The Zann Consortium's Ewok Handlers are a [[BlackComedy darkly comedic]] unit that is used for destroying bunkers and other structures. However, the handlers are infantry units that take a bit of time preparing their Ewok bombs, they don't have any other means of defending themselves, the Ewoks can be killed before they detonate, and the Consortium has access to [[BoringButPractical more mobile and better-defended artillery units]] in the MZ-8 Mobile Pulse Cannon and the MAL. The only advantage they have over the vehicle-based artillery is their access to infantry-only terrain.



** [=HTT-26=] Heavy Troop Transports, [=HAV/r=] [=B5=] Juggernauts, [=F9-TZ=] Cloaking Transports can all carry soldiers around. The Juggernauts are even awesomer because they have a pair of guns that act like anti-infantry turrets.

* ArmorPiercingAttack : Proton Torpedos, Mass drivers, and some missiles can punch through shields, damaging the hardpoints.

* DeathWorld: While a lot of planets in the game qualify for various reasons, Shola makes all the other [[LethalLavaLand volcanic worlds]] look like habitable paradises. After an excavating accident gone wrong wrecked the world and [[ApocalypseHow killed all life on it]], there are constant groundquakes, volcanic ash falling at all times and searing hot air. In [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration gameplay]], this translates to infantry units (baring droids) taking damage over time.



** Sensor Nodes, while stationary, are designed to do this indefinitely over a set distance.



** Also belonging to the Zann Consortium is the Vengeance, a tier 4 frigate armed with two forward-facing mass-driver cannons that can ignore shields and tear apart capital ships in groups. However, they are the only frigate-class ship in the game to not have shields. They can work around this shortcoming by use of their [[StealthInSpace cloaking devices]] (which in Conquest and the [=FoC=] campaign, have to be bought from an Imperial black market).



** Silri, on the other hand, acts like this all the time.

** The Consortium has the ability to "corrupt" certain planets and forcibly conscript their populations as troops (this namely applies to planets with unique and distinctive populations, like Kashyyk's Wookiees and Genosis' Genosians). Such troops are far less expensive than their regular infantry.
