The Galactic Civil War rages: Imperial forces have discovered the location of the Rebel base on the ice planet Hoth. Darth Vader orders his forces to commence a ground assault aimed at destroying Echo Base's main power generator and enabling bombardment of the planet from space. The Rebel's only hope is that its forces can resist the Imperial advance long enough to evacuate the doomed base.

Star Wars: The Battle for Hoth is a fast-paced tower-defense game that puts you in command of Echo Base's defenses. Can you use guile, strategy and reflexes to defend Echo Base from attack? At your command are Infantry Units, Gun Towers, Snowspeeders and more. Facing you is an army of Droids, Snowtroopers and the terrifying AT-ATs. The stage is set for a climatic clash of technology, tactics and action...

Star Wars: The Battle for Hoth features:

15 action-packed levels of combat for control of the ice planet Hoth.
2 gameplay modes, Classic & Fortress for added replay value.
Difficulty settings to enable you to control the level of challenge.
Original music and sounds effects from the movies.
Original video footage that brings the story to life.
Target-control command for all Rebel units.

Weapons and units from the Star Wars universe including AT-ST and AT-AT Walkers, Snowspeeders, DF.9 Anti-Infantry Batteries, Ion Cannons, X-Wing Fighters and Laser Cannons.

OpenFeint support with leader-boards and achievements for extra replay value (also allows connection to Facebook and Twitter).

The future of the Rebel Alliance is in your hands. You are their only hope!

The video in the front site article was rather average.
With some sloppy animations and a horrible soundtrack.
I don't think, anything has changed... but we'll see.
This will be a success anyway.

It's been confirmed that an iPad version is in the works, right? I think I'll wait for that version. Looks great though. I hope it plays as well as it looks.

I thought LucasArts was behind this game some reason.

Me too, especially after watching that trailer. And the price tag doesn't really surprise me since it's a Star Wars game. But as far as TD is concerned, I still think Fieldrunners and Star Defence to be the best so far.
