While it may be useful for Tasha's In The Know
talent, probably not so much for Bad Press
. In fact, I haven't seen any mission suggested, yet, where Bad Press
would be useful, unless you're willing to apply it to all Imperial military or all Imperial bureaucrats or anyone working on behalf of the New Order. But asides from that particular character, that mission just didn't appeal to me as a player. It sounds a little boring. Which isn't fair, I know. IC, it's just not the sort of thing this team is best at.
Hostage rescue is right down this team's alley. Problem is that you put the doctor's family on Coruscant, which is pretty much the worst place for Rath to go to in the entire galaxy (given that Palpatine is there and old melted-wax face is very likely to sense him), and none too joyful for the other three. Rico himself, while not saying anything IC (yet) about going there, has his own worries. He could be recognized. He's an Imperial defector, and a rather well-known one at that. Not quite as much as Galen Erso, but he was a key researcher at an important Imperial facility. I think you, as GM, forgot that part of his backstory, just as I keep forgetting about Rob's cat. I wish you'd stuck the family on some other planet, but I suspect that you had your reasons for picking Imperial Center (BTW, you keep misspelling Coruscant).
I'd hate to ruin your planned story arc, which is why I haven't jumped on the opportunity to ask about non-arc missions. And even it you don't consider it to be a problem, doing a non-arc mission takes time and the story arc missions strike me as being time-sensitive, especially the doctor's. And speaking of time-sensitivity, unless I completely blow off the story arc missions, spending time doing what Rico wants to do during 'downtime' is in direct conflict with needing to do the story arc missions.
