There are quite a few when you look into, despite the fact that the cutscenes are less then a minute long and are just from the movies (don't worry, no episode 3 here). When you play as the good guys, your mission briefing in Historical Campaign is sort of like you must stop the bad guys from invading a planet, or defending a peaceful one. When you play as the bad guys, your mission briefing uses words such as wipe out, destroy, or teach them a lesson, but it's mostly cartoonish.
Regardless of your side, you are engouraged to use teamwork and srategy. You are discouraged and punished in the statistics for killing your own teamates. You however, get awarded for killing the most people (but they automatically come back to life).
Yes, there is a fair amount of violence, and you are supposed to get alot of kills, but it is all star wars and lasers. Even the rockets and grenades are different colors from yellow to green to purple to red and even blue. There is no blood or gore, but when a droid is destroyed their limbs can go flying in all directions, but they're robots.
