Bodyguards - Who Gets Them?

With Battlefront II containing all 3 eras, it's a given that the number of Heroes is going to increase quite a bit. This thread is about whether we should have TCW and Rebels content in Batt.... Whoops. My bad, it's habit.

Of all the Heroes that are confirmed and/or expected (be somewhat realistic) to make an appearance in Battlefront II (PT, OT and ST), which of them will or should have Bodyguards? Who should their Bodyguards be? I personally enjoyed the Bodyguard role in the last Battlefront. It gives us a little skin variety without destroying the immersion (cough* cough* all of you Shoretroopers on Hoth).

Lastly, what (if any) changes should be made to the Bodyguards? I personally think that they should have a health and card/weapon regen (or however it's implemented in BFII) when in close proximity to their respective Heroes. With Heroes apparently getting a health decrease in the next game, the Bodyguard role could prove to be an important one. Oh, and ditch the Homing Shot.

Here are a few of the more obvious ones. As much as I would like some of these Guards as unlock-able skins, I think for immersions sake they're best suited in this Bodyguard role. Post your Bodyguard ideas/suggestions for all 3 eras :#

Leia Organa - Honor Guard

    These are the only ones I can think of off the top of my head...

    -General Grevious (MagnaGuards)

    - Padme (Naboo Guards or Clone Trooper Senate Guards)

    That is IF they confirm these 2 heroes.

    2x normal bodyguard health just for rex and cody compared to the other bodyguards? Or 2x health for all bodyguards compared to the first game?

    A little health boost would be nice for the Bodyguards. But, if there are going to be more of them then I think the health regen near their Hero makes up for it.

    As I said I'd rather have them as Heroes but if that's not an option this will have to do.
    How is that fair?
    Unlike the other bodyguards, there can only be 1 Cody or Rex at a time.
    WARNING, SPECULATION AHEAD
    Grievous - 2 Magnaguards 300 HP each
    Kenobi - 1 Cody 600 HP

    I really hope they implement that feature that we were desperately asking for in the original game where a bodyguard can slowly regenerate their health by sticking close to their hero. It would be a perfect addition that would encourage bodyguards to actually fulfill the role of being a "bodyguard".

    Droidekas could serve as bodyguards, and maybe Super Battle Droids if they aren't being used for the Heavy class. I would love to see the blue Senate Guard somewhere. I could also see ARC Troopers acting as bodyguards.
  • I would just prefer Elite troops as units that you could spend "points" on to play as, I don't like having to rely on someone else becoming a certain hero in order to play as these guys because they're pretty darn cool

    Because they fit the bodyguard role much better and there are many other characters that should get a hero spot over them

    So? We don't need many blaster heros in the PT. I would prefer someone like luminara over Rex or Cody. There are plenty of blaster heros in the OT, as we've seen in this game. Not saying I would oppose them being heros, but I don't feel like they're neseccary to be full on heros when they fit much better as body guards, but that's just my opinion.

    Both of them need to be ful flegded heroes.
    If not Rex, then for sure Cody.
    He is a movie character and a clone commander, he cant be reduced to a bodyguard.
    If Dengar, Nien and Bossk can be heroes so can he !



    Now I would like those bodyguard-hero combos:

    Grievous-magnaguards
    Padme-Clone shock Trooper / Senate commandos
    Thrawn-death troopers
    Jan Dodonna- Rebel Commandos (?)
    General Hux-Stromtrooper elites (?)
