I went to http://www.savageheroes.com/conversions.htm and downloaded all of the Star Wars conversions they had and kinda made my own version up.
To be honest they are all very similar and for something like simple Clone Troopers you are really just making up some armor and their blaster carbines or any other weapons you want to give them. You don't have to mess with Force powers or anything.
Initially I was going to include a Jedi sort of as the leader of the group kind of like in the Clone Wars cartoon. If you've ever watched that even a Jedi Padawan seems to be a leader of the Clone Troopers. But, the Jedi I stated out seemed a bit to powerful for what I had in mind. I wanted the feel of the movie Aliens with a Star Wars dressing. Grunt soldiers against these incredibly bad @ss creatures! So the Jedi was taken out.
I only had 4 Clone Trooper characters to pick from for my four players (one player showed up at the last minute so I threw together a Medic character for her in like 5 minutes...man I love Savage Worlds because you can do that sorta thing in a quickness!)
The four characters I made were the Medic, the Commander, the Special ops guy, and the Engineer (aka the demolitions guy). If I was to flesh this out for more players I would make a Flametrooper, a Heavy Weapons guy, a hand-to-hand specialist...the list could go on.
Check out the list the have here...
And whats so cool about Savage Worlds is that you can make a base Clone Trooper and just add some skills and equipment to one and now he's a Flame Trooper or a Heavy Weapons guy or the Medic. And with Hindrances they could all have different personalities despite looking like one another.
