      It's movie, so obviously the protagonists have a degree of plot armor and they aren't just gonna get headshotted in the middle of a random firefight. That said, at least in the OT, there's a sense of urgency - during the Death Star raid or the escape from Bespin, the heroes are always on the run, with the idea that if they stop moving they'll be overwhelmed, which keeps the tension up.

      In shit like the Mandalorian every character is doing hero poses and gunning down stormtroopers by the truckload which just makes the Empire look ridiculous

      Yeah, if Solo served ANY purpose it kinda sorta showed that people that had no where else to go in life were signing up to work for the Empire. I mean Luke himself was headed to the "Academy" as soon as his uncle let him, to likely be a Tie Fighter Pilot, so I would assume that Storm Troopers we're mainly desperate farmers or people whose families would starve if they didn't join. Probably a lot of orphans too.

      So basically what the nazis did with their Dutch conscripts towards the end of the war.

        In ANH, the Stormtroopers are instructed to let the intruders escape so they can find the rebel base. In ROTJ, they're mostly overwhelmed by the Ewoks' ambush tactics in dense foliage, where it's much harder to shoot accurately.

        he also says that blaster weapons are clumsy and random like 2 minutes before that.

        also luke is already beginning to show signs of his affinity to the force before they even land on the death star. it's pretty clear that he hits the shots on the stormtroopers blocking vader through the force and possibly with help from obi-wan, similar to how he curves the torpedos at the end of the film.

            moronic cope. Then why have Stormtroopers shoot at them at all? Were the officers drawing their blasters on Han and Chewie in the prison block to shoot to miss? Bad guy henchmen always have bad aim, it's just that stormtroopers also are the only henchmen whose aim and skill is specifically referenced as elite.

                What other points are there? Stormtroopers are competent at times, but the times they are incompetent is so extreme it just almost cancels out when they're good. You cannot seriously watch Return of the Jedi and claim that their getting bonked on the head, knocked out by stones thrown from above, or being instantaneously strangled by rocks on rope is defensible in any way whatsoever. The land battle on Endor just completely tanked stormtroopers' credibility for all time.

                Their being inaccurate for purposes of "plot armor" would have never even been a point of contention if not for

                no one is defending that. earlier in the thread it was pointed out that the first two movies do a good job of portraying the storm troopers as competent, while still allowing the heroes to escape.

                Agreed. Return of the Jedi forever solidified stormtroopers' reputations as a joke. There's nothing wrong with the idea of a primitive species beating the Empire; the log-tripping and log smashing of the AT-STs were good, but just how "cute" the Ewoks were and how weak their attacks looked just really killed it

                Yeah this was a bad idea, Lucas wrote himself into a corner with Ewoks played by short little midges who couldn't even fight off a den of badgers. I like Ewoks on their own but the forest moon battle sadly comes off as some hastily thrown together bullshit. Even the ROTJ Stormtrooper armor looked shittier, even if it was more flexible and robust, less prone to breakage.

    clone army special forces are:
    >clone commandos
    >the bad batch (still considered commandos)

    empire special forces are:
    >deathtroopers
    >inferno squad
    >SCAR squadron
    >shadow troopers
    >imperial royal commandos
    >CX trooper squad

    why does the empire have so many special units?

      Because each special force is under command of a different high ranking official. All of them are infighting to gain favor with Imperial command and the emperor.

      Pure invasion forces (think Marines) vs. occupation/peacetime police forces. Once war was over the Empire shifted its focus to maintenance and entrenchment of power.

      Look at America; every military branch has their own Special Forces unit. The fricking Janitorial Division probably has a top secret squad of elite floor moppers. The Empire is even worse because they also have individual high ranking officers who're all constantly fighting for resources for their own personal vanity projects who can divert funds to having their very own Ego Squad to march around behind them looking imposing.

      Also you're short, CW also had ARFs, ARCs, Assassins and probably a few more I'm forgetting.

      but america, or any other democracticlly occupied shithouse, really isn't that much better considering just how dumb and spiritually dead the average person is now.

    That's just an amusing observation.
    If you really wanna get pissed off at the Star Wars writers, it should be with how every single droid must be portrayed as stupid, silly, incompetent, and I'll tell you why.
    Life is precious, it's rare. Droids are not. If the Star Wars universe was written to admit that droids can be competent at flying, shooting, decision-making etc., then that universe would quickly become 'Swarm Wars', where every faction would be mass producing flying droids out the ass, trying to overcome the competition. Battles wouldn't involve organic soldiers but robotic soldiers, every single one of them.
    This is what we're gonna get in IRL, swarm wars, because no soldier is ever gonna want to get shot at again when there'll be perfectly competent soldier robots and drones to take their place. Fully robotic wars are the destiny in a universe where everyone wants to survive.

      Droids are a good compromise honestly, no one can buy SF without computers but by making them farcical characters you can keep the stories maximally human

    Why are clone troopers so rehabilitated and revered while store troopers are so viciously vilified? Obi-wan had the title character giving money to a homeless clone veteran. The Mandalorian had a storm trooper punch baby Yoda in the face. Why the double standard?

      Because the Empire are the bad guys and the Republic are the good guys, so clones have to be good guys and stormtroopers have to be bad guys.

          idiots think that the whole series is just "ww2 in space" when the actual quote from the empire of dreams doc goes more into how certain scenes were influenced by world war 2 films in their camera placement and how action played out. the conflict is that of civil disturbances between a government and its unwilling subjects, rather than a confrontation between two superpowers.

          the same idiots then conflate this idea and extend it into being rebels = americans and empire = nazi when lucas himself said that palpatine was nixon and the empire was the americans and british wearing nazi uniforms so kids could recognize it.

          now the cosmopolitan bird brains who write this shit are the modern establishment and support imperial actions in other parts of the world, so making the empire in their films a threatening and menacing force would be painting themselves as the villains instead of the only possible political option we have available.

          it's the same reason the new republic in the disney movies can have a feminist leader who comes from a planet with only female leaders and doesn't need to explain any military plans to her subordinates. anything the good guys do can't be criticized and everything the bad guys do is impotent and toothless.
          why would disney want kids thinking rebels are cool and that their government sucks israelite dick and are the real nazis?

    People with autism have sat down and counted and during the assault on Leia ship in ANH they're 10 times more accurate than the most accurate rate ever recorded in actual combat IRL. Later in ANH they allow the Rebs to escape while convincing all but Leia that they were trying not to. In ESB they overrun Hoth Base in the time it takes Han & Leia to run from the command centre to the hangar. In Jedi everyone takes the piss out of them for "losing to teddy bears", but they didn't did they, they were successfully ambushed but then immediately took back the initiative, cornered the Reb infiltrators and forced their surrender, and were well on the way to slaughtering the "teddy bears" when Chewie deployed his plot armour and saved the day for the goodies.

    Only genuinely moronic subnormals ever believed STs weren't badasses(hey Taika), but the combination of their dumbass meming and modern Disney's pathological cowardice when it comes to showing effective, competent, powerful bad guys in their IPs somehow it's now "canon" that they were shit? Frick no.

      I think this could work for a series following multiple major characters on different sides (and neutral parties).
      It would be interesting to see them all dealing with each other’s shenanigans, perhaps during a campaign on a particular planet. Maybe “season 1” culminates in one side winning and taking most of the other side captive.
      It might be too grey/gritty for Star Wars, but…it’d be so kino…

    Accurate infantry eats up your time and budget. It's cheaper and faster to make them unable to hit important characters, until a sacrifice scene, and just get on with the movie. Also, most writers don't have half a clue about weaponry so they just write something in that sounds fun and go with it.

      stormtroopers is a generic term for grenadier equivalents of the modern era, there are other countries that claim they coined the term before it was applied to the germans due to allied propaganda designed to dehumanize their enemy. generic shock troopers might not be as obvious to your average moron so they went with the german look.
