One of Rebellion's unique aspects which sets it apart from other games of its genre (and especially from the later Star Wars RTS VideoGame/EmpireAtWar) is the heavy focus on gaining and maintaining the loyalty of planets rather than simply trying to take them all through brute force.

** It's also the reason Emperor Palpatine gives for any mission he's on that doesn't go well..."''You have not adequately supported me on this mission...and it has failed.''"

** Oh it's better then that. A sufficiently power fleet can just continue to General bombard until the planet's energy resource is completely destroyed preventing ANY buildings from ever being built there again. It's a legit alternative that if the rebels already fully control a sector to just burn every planet to the ground rather then bothering to try and win them over, and unlike the Death Star planet destruction, the negatives from slagging a planet only affect that system.

* YouHaveFailedMe: [[spoiler: To the player, if he commands the Empire and loses the game. IMP-22 orders that you be 'sanctioned' for your failure, but seeing as the place is getting blown to pieces by three Mon Calamari Crusiers at the time, he decides to slip away and 'leave the Rebels to apply the appropriate sanctions'. Your command center explodes into flames a few seconds later.]]

* MagikarpPower: The Alliance starts out with relatively bad ships, but they get better quickly since they start out with...Wedge Antilles, who is now apparently an engineer.
** [[FridgeBrilliance The reason why]], is to better represent [[{{Badass}} the massive casualties he canonically inflicts on the empire]].

** The Emperor's bonus requires him to stay idle at a base that the rebels are guaranteed to attack sometime; none of the rebel characters' inherent bonuses require them to be stationary OR idle.

** The Emperor's character bonus requires him to stay idle at a base that the rebels are guaranteed to attack sometime; none of the rebel characters' inherent bonuses require them to be stationary OR idle.idle. Made worse by the fact that conquering the base in question (Coruscant) and capturing the Emperor are two of the three victory conditions for the Rebellion, forcing the Empire to put most of their eggs in one basket.
