...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
To do:

Star Wars: Empire at War is an RTS game in the Star Wars franchise.

Unused Units


Tani Ab'yla

Tani Ab'yla is one of the heroes for the rebels.

A member of an unspecified felinoid species, She generally preferred to attack enemies with some form of grenade, and normally carried some sort of device which could generate a localized electromagnetic pulse. She could sprint at double her normal speed for a short duration.

Tani Ab'yla was one of several units which were cut from Star Wars: Empire at War before the game's release. Her abilities were usurped by Kyle Katarn, Han Solo, C-3PO and R2-D2.

The reason why she was removed might have something to do with her abilities being overpowered or time constraints.

The name of Tani Ab'yla's model file is: "NI_TANI.ALO"


The Pengauani is a Neutral Infantry, only seen as a set of a model and animation files in the game. There is no usable code in the game XML files to enable it, and its intended purpose remains unclear. As stated before the unit is barebones.

It is implied that the Pyn'gani from EAW were originally intended to use the Pengauani model, and had this been the case, would have explained a few uncertainties in the game in regards to them. Particularly, why the Pyn'gani (who are made up of the human snow-dweller model, yet do not spawn from the typical snow-dwelling human structure, but rather their own igloo-like ones) are the only "humans" in the expansion game that can be enslaved by the Zann Consortium. The similarity of the words "Pyn'gani" and "pengauani" are also notable.

The name of the Pengauani's model is "NI_PENGAUANI.ALO". The "NI" is a sorting descriptor that represents "Neutral Infantry".



In the main game it was unused. though can be added back by modding, it becomes playable in the expansion.

Launch Bay

Mostly all space units (except Venator) have a Launch Bay attack line, but was cut for unknown reasons, assumed to be time constraints. The only exceptions being Thrawn and Rom Mohc.

While the Venator does have a Launch bay attack line, it would only play a laser attack lines.
