Polis Massa: Medical Facility map

Polis Massa is an asteroid on which is newly formed Rebel Alliance has established an outpost. It's highly important in the films, and some sequences in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith; one where Yoda is seen meditating, and Bail Organa walks in, one where Obi-Wan flies into the Base with Padme and C3P0, and you see people staring off in a scene reminiscent of 2001: A Space Odyssey, and another where you see people walking on walkways. Finally, where the medical staff on the asteroid is asisting Padme in the birth of her twins, Luke and Leia. Therefore, the many recognizable features of this map are the room where Padme was in when she gave birth to the twins, and the room where Yoda Meditates, and disappointingly the developers left out all the other features.

The many nooks and crannies make for some intense close combat, where you can be blasted the split-second you turn a corner. Also, you can take some tanks for a spin outside in space, but don't try to walk there - your health steadily and quickly decreases, that is unless you are a CIS unit. Since the battle takes place on an asteroid, the outside area has no air, which means any breathing unit will eventually die when exposed for too long. As mentioned before, CIS units do not need to breathe and will not die when exposed to space.

Gameplay[]

This map heavily favours the CIS, as the Repubic's Command Post 3 can be taken easily and early in the game. Furthermore, the CIS, after capturing CP3, can spawn further up the map nearer to CP2. This advantage, combined with the CIS being able to ambush the Republic's CP1 due to the droids being able to survive in a vacuum, leads to an easy victory for the CIS. There will always be 2 or 3 Assassin Battle Droids or Rebel Marksman guarding command post 6.

Certain servers online remove vehicles and remove the ability of droids to survive outside, allowing for a more balanced match. Engineers can traverse outside using their health packs which allow them to make it to the opposite side of the map without vehicles. Droideka's health and speed while boosting also allows it to get to the opposite side of the map quickly.

Trivia[]

  • Despite being unable to take damage from the outside area's lack of oxygen, the CIS droids will still make sounds as if they are receiving damage. This will stop after a few seconds of exposure.
  • One of the command posts is placed directly on top of the bed that Padme gave birth on.
