You’ve seen the Star Wars movies. You’ve read the novels and the comics. In the game, you’ll get a chance to explore the galaxy, to go anywhere, do anything … as long as the Imperials don’t catch you, that is.
Before you can adventure in the galaxy, you better know something about it. First off, it’s big — the Empire rules billions of worlds. You’ve got a vast galaxy out there, waiting for you.
What’s the Empire? The rulers — the bosses — the guys with all the power, and they’ll be glad to use it on anyone who gets in their way. Some planet’s government gets out of line, an Imperial fleet will show up and blast ‘em until they’re … more agreeable. Imperials call it “pacification” … but most have nastier words for it. Could be some places — like Alderaan — just gotta learn things the hard way.
The Empire’s troops are thugs with blasters. You want to learn to say, “Yes, sir,” “No, sir” and “Whatever you say, sir!” Mouth off and you’ll wind up in the spice mines ofKessel.
And then there’s the Rebel Alliance. They’re trying to bring the Empire down and bring back the old government, the Republic. Some say they haven’t got a chance. Fighting the Empire gets you dead in a hurry, and most folk like breathin’.
Finally, there’s those in the middle. They’re the bounty hunters, the smugglers, the mercenaries … the Fringe. They work for money, and you’d better not forget it.
There’s lots more … the galaxy’s full of aliens and starships and land speeders and weapons. Yeah, lots of weapons. You’d better learn about those too, if you want to survive.
