I know this is a light hearted thread, but go with me on this one…
You know, since the Senate actually voted for an Empire, its entirely possible that the Imperial forces never had to actually subjugate a world. Between Sith and Jedi, those forces simply had to enforce the status quo. But with Endor, a world finally revolted, and it was the first time that the Stormtroopers ever had to face a massive uprising without a member of the Jedi council at the command. Maybe, the events on Endor could have happened anywhere at anytime in the previous 20 years if only someone had rallied an entire species to try? But in a funny quirk of history, the first world to do so just happened to be populated by teddy bears. Douglas Adams would have been proud.
