Trust me, troopers can fight on even terms with sith warriors.... on a distance
The question was never about the game being balanced, it was about it being balanced while remaining true to the starwars universe, a regular clone trooper is no more a match for a jedi or sith than the droideka were. But we established there were certain people that would have stood a chance against the jedi and sith, and the idea is these are the type of people that the player will be controlling, not just a standard grunt but a special one.
