See, GL did do something right!
As for the ewoks. I don't mind it as much, seeing that they work mostly as a destraction to the stormies. Technically the ewoks only score a few kills by dislodging ATSTs and bikes, tactics the ewoks probably use to discourage bigger creatures.
Yes their rock dropping are enough to cause quite some problem with the strormies, but most won't directly kill them other than giving them some consussion. Granted, some rebels would caught wind of what is happening there and throw in a nade or two.
