That's the only real answer. Like most baddies they can slaughter extras by the thousands.

Hardly surprising that stormtroopers rarely hit anything. They’re using the notoriously short-ranged Sterling SMGs with the butt folded (and no magazine).

Except for their section support weapon guys. They have infantry-pattern Lewis guns, again with no magazine (check out the scene where Luke and Ben arrive in Mos Eisley in Episode IV).

Hypothetical battle:

An army of Star Wars stormtroopers vs. an army of the Padishah emperor's Sardaukaur? The latter is from the Dune universe in case you didn't know. smile
