I was playing today, on medium, as the Empire, assaulting a Pirate planet. Sent down some troops, and within less than a minute of attacking a pirate position, half my troops had died. And soon, after sending Darth Vader to capture a build point, i'd lost everything except Darth Vader and The Emperor. Then I had a space battle, and while I vastly outnumbered my enemy, I literally moved them forward and my few ships had decimated the enemy, without me doing anything. It was like in the tutorial, I selected to attack the shield generator, and by the time I had destroyed that, before I got a click off for another section it had been destroyed.
Now I'm no slow coach when it comes to gaming. I play a lot of FPS' and can react quickly, but in EaW, everything just seems to flash past me. I barely get time to send an attack order before bullets are flying everywhere and half my troops are dead or the enemy is. I know you can turn down the game speed, but that hardly seems to do anything anyway. Does anyone else find the game speed just too fast?

I'm liking space battles, but most of these land battles are crap. Also to stop the rebels from raiding Corellia, I built a Level 4 Space Station, a gravity well generator, and the hypervelocity gun, and I have a Star Destroyer, Interdictor, two Victory's, a Broadside, and four Tartans as my sector forces. Ackbar won't be escaping again.
Another thing that bugs me is the fact that a company of infantry can take down an AT-AT, or at least pretty close. While my AT-ATs are dealing with stupid infantry (Note: "Our blasters have no effect") and Plex soldiers, the enemy is moving Mon Mothma's Bagpipes into position to blow me to hell.

I don't use the pause that much. Mostly just to pick my units out in the heat of combat, and then I micro-manage them. I usually use the attack move feature, and enjoy turning on cinematic mode and watching it unfold like a movie.
