Comments about strategy

The key to the rebel victory was speed.  Play the objective is the winning strategy and not brutal firefights with the likes of Royal Guards.  In an effort to secure the Royal Guard Champion as part of their collection, the Imperials play big Agenda cards and enlist Darth Vader.  But his one, single attack, as brutal as it was, was too late.  The rebels sent their most technical and quickest hero and it paid off.
