It's not all that unusual for heroes to receive battle reports from their troops.
It is somewhat unusual for the heroes to receive them from the enemy troops. But that's okay - and probably means you should give it a try at some point.
GM: The Imperials march you out of the Temple of Dome.
GM: Your battalion on guard outside has been captured too.
Leia: Some guards they were.
Leia: So, are the Imperials going to execute us?
Chewbacca: Not without an unfair trial first, surely. That just wouldn't be proper.
Han: Where did these guys come from? I thought they were all attacking our fort.
Clone Trooper: Yeah, we were. They sent us, the best troops in the system, since fortifications of that scale clearly protected an important strategic location.
Clone Trooper: Six of our strongest platoons were poised to obliterate them, when their leader stood up behind a battlement and gave an hour-long speech, rousing the defenders to a frenzy.
Clone Trooper: No matter how many times we charged, they kept beating us back. Each of their defenders this day was worth a hundred men. We remnants who survived their fury retreated here.
Chewbacca: Lord Clabburn of Hoth is in line for a Dukedom.
