"Cutting-edge Special Forces ... Advanced strike teams ... comprised of only the most talented and disciplined soldiers—a new breed of elite Republic Troopers."

“If you’re a player that just wants to get in there and wreak havoc ... you ‘d be a Trooper ..." Tim Temmerman Associate Producer Lucas Arts


"The Trooper is a patriot in wartime, serving his people and deciding what lines he's willing to cross if it means defeating an Empire that wants to put his beloved Republic in chains. When the Trooper's story begins, you have just finished advanced training in forward assault, search & destroy, and advanced recon, and been asked to join Havoc Squad, the most elite of the special-forces groups."
