just got this on steam and I did all the objectectives for the first Empire mission. everything had a check on it. but nothing is happening. first time, I couldn't do anything cause a loading cursor animation was playing and I could not click on anything. I saved and then loaded, and that stopped. but then I still can't figure out what to do. took my guys back to that officer waiting at the spaceship. but still nothing.
nevermind. I finally took the game to go back and try this again. this time by just restarting the game. and yea, my problem had been the loss of the troopers like I thought. the game should let you know though. there is no alert that "your game is doomed. you are ****ed"
