If you're looking at it in that regard you would then have to give the Trooper a weapon to be able to fight hand to hand with. (i.e. a vibroblade or something similar)
I would essentially compare the Trooper to class to the Storm Troopers and Clone Troopers. You don't really seem them pulling out a melee weapon. It's strictly blaster/sidearm.
