Summary: Fun and challenging with a lot of fan-inspired content from the Expanded Universe. The Rebels are over-powered with their missile tanks, but what can you do? Aside from getting AT-ATs as quickly as possible. Be sure to get the official patch from Lucasarts so it can run on newer computers! Very important!
Summary: I know this markets itself as an expansion, but it's more like a new game in a lot of ways. You get a brand new faction to play with while the units for the Rebellion and Empire have been tweaked. I'll admit, the vast majority are the same, but there are some puzzling changes. For example, now you can only build the Death Star II and not the Death Star. Why not both?
Summary: I'm a big fan of Star Wars and this game is one of the better ones out there. You play as either the Rebellion or the Empire, build up planets, construct ships and ground forces, and invade other planets. It sounds very simple, and it is. But, I think this works in favor of the game instead of against it. This isn't some highly complicated RTS game. All you do is build and attack. The real draw for me are the space battles.

Summary: I liked this game...alot...but after awhile, it still gets boring, most games do, but occasionally you get a game like Starcraft that lasts at least 10 years... The improvements over the first were awesome. I enjoy the ability to be a third army in the galactic civil war, and all the mods for the expansion are alot better than the ones for the original (though there were a few good ones for the original, I just can't find them anymore).
Summary: All I can really say is that out of numerous Star Wars games over the years, and expansions packs for any game in general, this one takes the cake. It adds some much needed balance between the Empire and the Rebellion. Not to mention the new faction coming into the middle is balanced to fit well. And it isn't just now 3 pieces of a pie. Each faction has their unique attributes still and then some.
