I'm actually not sure who would win in this war. I'd say that the New Jedi Order would probably tip the scales in the Galactic Alliance's favor, if every single war ever fought in Star Wars is any indication. But without the NJO, the Alliance could only win by sheer attrition, or hoping that the Rebel Alliance back home wins.
And Hitler would have won if he were smart, had a large surface fleet and a large deposit of oil reserves. And the South would have won if they were larger, had more railroads, more guns and more money.
That varies from "slight" to "extreme" depending on the author. If you go solely by Saxtonite Star Wars, technology is pretty darn static. But most EU authors ignore this, and it is even stated in Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor that a New Republic X wing's quad lasers have power generation on par with a CW era turbolaser.
Which is a far greater advantage than you seem to imply.
That's actually a good point. But it works both ways.
This I'd have to disagree with. Getting information on the GA would be as easy as tuning into the Holonet.
Again, disagree. A galaxy hardly changes in a few decades, nor would civilizations that have been established for tens of thousands of years.
In space? What the kriff are you talking about?
False Edit: Well, I could understand with the wormhole. But once the Empire sends its fleet through (which it can), the Alliance won't have the time to dedicate any significant fleet to bottleneck the wormhole, assuming that they can even find out where it is.
Agreed, but not for any of the reasons you mentioned. Holding and occupying worlds of tens of billions would be the problem.
Another good point, although the Imperial Navy is large enough to do both with moderate success.
Simple statistics? What statistics aren't simple enough for you? Logistics?
I was about to respond to that, but it's been way too long since that last post of mine for me to care about doing it all again. Debating fictional numbers and 'what ifs' has become boring and tedious. I never thought that day would come.
