After the rise of Emperor Palpatine's New Order, a wave of pro-Human legislation swept across the galaxy. Nonhumans were relegated to the status of second-class citizens at best, and slaves at worst. The latter was the fate of the proud natives of Kashyyyk- the Wookiees. When their world was subjugated by the Empire, the Wookiees found themselves fighting the very clones that had defended them from the onslaught of Separatist Battle Droids during the Clone Wars.
The Wookiees, however, are survivors, and they don't take kindly to anyone who tries to seize their home. Just as they fought the slavers of the Czerka Corporation millennia ago, they fought back against the Empire. Wookiee Freedom Fighters moved through the dangerous sublevels of Kashyyyk's towering forests, ascended to hit a target- usually freeing enslaved Wookiees in the process- and then faded back into the forest. A few times, the Empire made the mistake of following them into the sublevels, but the horrific tales told by the handful of survivors discouraged further attempts at pursuit.
Using such tactics, the Wookiees turned Kashyyyk into an unending pit of Imperial casualties. The Empire would not give up its hold on the planet, but they couldn't establish true control over the world no matter how many legions they sent. By the end of the Galactic Civil War, the forest floor had become the graveyard of countless Stormtroopers, their armored shells buried by the insatiable plantlife of Kashyyyk.
