ConfusionEdit

In Return of the Jedi, we know Sullust was one of the Alliance's capitals. But during the Battlefront liveblog one of the devs said something like, "Sullust, that's where the Empire makes AT-ATs! So, I don't know what to do except leave it like this for now—until we get the whole story. Nivlacanator(talk) 00:27, April 18, 2015 (UTC)

  • Return of the Jedi didn't say it was a capital. Vader only say a Rebel fleet was amassing near Sullust. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 00:38, April 18, 2015 (UTC)

Millennium Falcon: book vs. gameEdit

Referring to the Falcon being referenced as a participant in the page's infobox: while we certainly see the Falcon in the various previews of the new Battlefront game, it is decidedly not part of the battle as depicted in Battlefront: Twilight Company—which featured only Twilight Company on the ground, with air support from just the Apailana's Promise and a handful of X-wings. What takes precedence here? — DigiFluid(Whine here) 01:44, November 7, 2015 (UTC)

  • I have not read the book yet, so hard to say. However, I think it's worth mentioning that not every part of Star Wars Battlefront can be taken as canon; one must remember that it is still a game. For example, I don't think we can claim that Emperor Palpatine was apart of the ground battle on Endor, and we cannot claim that Luke Skywalker fought with a green lightsaber during the Battle of Hoth.

Name / Page move Edit

So...Twilight Company referred to this fight as the Siege of Inyusu Tor — as in, a proper name. To me this says there should be a page move, since the current title is conjectural. However I haven't played the game, so I don't know if it uses this title.... — DigiFluid(Whine here) 01:24, November 21, 2015 (UTC)

  • Yeah, that seems to all be just the game/gameplay mechanics. I'm planning on redoing this article in everything you mentioned above tomorrow when I have time. Cheers! Nivlacanator(talk) 07:49, November 21, 2015 (UTC)

Battlefront gameEdit

Are we certain that the Siege of Inyusu Tor was depicted in the Battlefront game? Cevan IMPpress (talk) 00:57, January 31, 2016 (UTC)

  • Going to bring this up again—have we received any confirmation that the Battlefront game depicts the Siege? Cevan IMPpress (talk) 01:57, July 30, 2016 (UTC)
    • I have not seen any confirmation. As someone who has read the book and play the game, I would say no. In the game, you can see Mon Calamari Star Cruisers and Nebulon-B Frigates flying overhead in the sky, neither of which were part of the Siege of Inyusu Tor. Also, the battlefield described in the book is very different compared to any maps that can currently be played in the game, and there was only one star destroyer present compared to the several shown in-game. Since the planet was not completely liberated during the Siege, I figure that the battles shown in-game are supposed to represent future battles between the rebels and imperials, prior to Sullust's complete liberation. However, that is merely speculation and battles occuring on Sullust between the rebels and imperials following the Siege of Inyusu Tor may not have canonically existed in the way represented in game.

Liberation of Sullust? Edit

Do we know for certain this the liberation of Sullust? I guess we just assumed it because of Battlefront II, but in Star Wars: The Rebel Files, Ackbar sends a note to Mon Mothma saying that the Alliance fleet will return to Sullust and free the world once the 2nd Death Star is gone. Ackbar then notes underneath that the fighting took months but eventually they did free Sullust. I think this also possibly means Shriv didn't fight in this battle but in the one post Endor --Lewisr (talk) 17:00, May 2, 2018 (UTC)

  • In Battlefront: Twilight Company, it states that pirate broadcasts and intercepted transmissions indicated insurrections all over Sullust. Although only hinted at, these insurrections could have easily thrown the Imperials on Sullust into chaos, liberating it and meaning Twilight Company (and Shriv Suurgav) would've helped in a liberation of Sullust. Hence the quote "I did help liberate it". The book also says an Imperial counterattack was inevitable so the likely scenario is that the Empire will have come back, taken it and then the Alliance to Restore the Republic can take it back, hence your quote from Star Wars: The Rebel Files. My point is that Rebel Files clearly states a liberation post battle of Endor and that what Shriv says could either be referencing that, the siege of Inyusu Tor from Twilight Company, or even both. To add to this, the Star Wars: Battlefront II campaign referenced almost every book in Star Wars so Shriv's quote was likely their intention to reference Twilight Company. -- Ben sc01t (User talk:Ben sc01t) 12:11, May 12, 2018 (UTC)
    • If its only hinted then surely we can't take it as fact, its fair to say Pinyumb was liberated as that's what the book says but saying the whole planet was liberated based on the book is speculation. The Rebel Files flat out says they liberated Sullust after Endor so that's the liberation of Sullust. If we don't know which event Shriv is talking about then we should remove him from either page until its more clear --Lewisr (talk) 11:44, May 12, 2018 (UTC)
