The Yuuzhan Vong are species which come from another Galaxy, therefore being completely immune to the Force (they can't be affected by it in any way, shape or form). They also hate technology and go berserk whenever they see it. For this reason, every equipment and ship they have is organic. Pretty bizarre.SunnyThrower464 wrote:I did not think of it like that. Personally I have no idea what the yuuzhan vong is because I dont know the star wars universe that well. I feel like we are focusing too much on naval forces while naval forces do play a huge role but ground forces also play a huge role. When it comes to the ground I would say it depends on era if it was republic halo would get beat. But if it was halo against the empire then they would beat the empire easily. While I may not know as much about star wars but I do know this that the empires ground forces were terrible except for there special forces which honestly are probably better than halos special forces. A lot of this argument does depend on era of both universes.
Actually, the Empire's ground forces aren't, at all, bad. In fact, while the movies portray them otherwise, Imperial Stormtroopers (which rank at about 3 trillion, last I checked. Could be Legends numbers though) are pretty competent on their own. It's just that the Empire employs itself with designs meant to incite fear, which gives their equipment (like the Imperial ISD, the main class of starships) many flaws. ISDs' shield generators (the 2 large metallic balls at the top of the ship) are very exposed. And, as shown in Return of the Jedi, a doomed starfighter crashing into the bridge was enough to bring down the Executor-class Super Star Destroyer (19 Km), the ship which crashes to the Death Star II's surface.
Fear, power, strength and numbers, at the cost of defense, survivability, flexibility and practical use.
On the other hand, the Galactic Republic has strength, defense, survivability and flexibility. Every Clone Trooper is a clone of the deadliest bounty hunter (Jango Fett), which makes them natural soldiers. However, they have slightly inferior technology and, compared to the Empire, inferior numbers. Given how crazy fast Unggoy (Grunts) breed and mature, the Covenant could potentially outnumber and outproduce the Galactic Republic and even the CoIS, which is made up exclusively of various Droid models.
Additionally, a large part of ship-to-ship combat in SW is starfighters, with the Rebel Alliance relying almost exclusively on them for their success. While in Halo, piloting a Starfighters gives you reduced chances of survival, since both UNSC and Covenant ships have excellent Point-Defense Weaponry systems (anti-fighter technology), meaning any starship pilot, even someone like Anakin (best pilot in the Republic) would have a very high chance of death.
