Best Missions from the Rise of the Empire Campaign from Star Wars Battlefront II (2005)

The Rise of the Empire is the campaign of the game Star Wars Battlefront II (the 2005 not the EA one in 2017) its a story based in the events of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones to Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. The story is about the 501st legion also known as "Vader's Fist" and it tells its own story about how the republic fell which then lead to the the Rise of the Galactic Empire.
The Top Ten
1 Coruscant: Operation: Knightfall

This is the mission where you execute Order 66, also known as killing the Jedi. In this mission, you raid the Jedi Temple and kill many Jedi, just like in Revenge of the Sith. You can also play as Anakin Skywalker.

2 Hoth: Our Finest Hour

This is the final mission of the campaign, and what better way to end it than by recreating the iconic Battle of Hoth scene from The Empire Strikes Back. In this mission, you do pretty much the same stuff the Empire did in the movie. You have to destroy the shield generator and then invade the Echo Base as the Rebels retreat. However, in this mission, you also get to play as Darth Vader and destroy the last of the transports.

3 Tantive IV: Recovering the Plans

This mission is set at the beginning of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, in which the Empire takes over the ship and tries to find the Death Star plans. This mission is very fun because it's exciting to play out one of the most iconic opening scenes in film history, and plus, you can play as Darth Vader.

4 Mustafar: Tying up Loose Ends

This is an interesting mission in which you, as the Empire, fight the last remaining Separatists from the Clone Wars. This takes place in the same scene in Revenge of the Sith where Anakin goes to kill them, which you can play as him in the mission, I believe.

5 Kamino: Changing of the Guard
6 Utapau: Underground Ambush

This mission was also a very fun one. It takes place during the scene in Revenge of the Sith when Obi-Wan fights General Grievous, which you do get to fight him in the mission.

7 Death Star: Prison Break

Despite the title, this mission is not about Luke Skywalker and Han Solo breaking Princess Leia out of prison but rather tells another story of how captured Rebels broke out of prison and stole the Death Star plans. I'd say this mission's story is way better than the entire movie of Rogue One.

8 Mygeeto: Amongst the Ruins
9 Geonosis: Attack of the Clones
10 Yavin 4: Revenge of the Empire

Ever wondered why the Rebels went to Hoth? Well, this is the reason. After the Death Star was destroyed, the Empire wanted revenge and so attacked the planet and conquered it, avenging the destruction of the Death Star.

The hardest mission in the game. It's a matter of being almost nearly perfect on the way up of killing the 3 brethren spies. This level isn't fun. Frankly, if you make it in one piece, it would be only you reminding it has happened to me many times playing this one, which I deeply loathe.

The Contenders
11 Felucia: Heart of Darkness

You have to kill these acklay things while also defending your powerful vehicle. You're going to need it to beat this mission. You won't be able to take those down by foot.

Yeah, not even Aayla can help you much if one of these acklay takes you down in one hit. You'll be eaten alive by these nearly indestructible enemies that will make you never want to play that one again.

12 Naboo: Imperial Diplomacy

This is kind of a tough first mission being a part of the Empire. You can make it easy, though, if you manage to keep the tank in one piece. You can easily destroy the few Jedi deployed, and Amidala too.

13 Polis Massa: Birth of the Rebellion
14 Yavin 4 Space: Vader's Fist Strikes Back
15 Kashyyyk: A Line in the Sand
16 Coruscant Space: A Desperate Rescue
17 Kashyyyk Space: First Line of Defense
18 Mustafar Space: Preventive Measures
