I've been running a Clone Wars campaign for a while now and I've decided to give the players a little boost in terms of power. This is partly because they've hit 9th level and I'm heading into Dark Times soon (Jedi in the party) and partly because I scored 4 critical hits in a single encounter last session :D

I read somewhere of a GM allowing Bonus Feats for even levels of Prestige Classes to balance some of the Special Abilities (Gunslinger's is incredibly boring compared to all the options for Force Techniques) and I'm going to try it but I found the Talent selections themselves are pretty bad. Because of all the new Talent trees in supplements being linked to classes the Jedi Knight has access to no fewer than 12 unique Talent trees while the Assassin (for example) has access to 4. And 2 of those are Scoundrel trees. So I started running through the Prestige Classes and updating their Talent lists, both the ones they have access to and the ones they can use for Prerequisites. I've found through looking at the first 3 (alphabetically) that 8 Talent trees seems pretty balanced, with a mix of Heroic and Prestige trees.

Example: The Ambusher Talent tree (in Rebellion Era CG) for Soldier is all about singling out a single target. I think this fits perfectly with Bounty Hunter, so I'll allow a Bounty Hunter to select Talents from that tree. I'll also allow a player to use Ambusher talents in place of Awareness talents (to make a military background BH)

Does anyone have any suggestions for these lists for other classes? Or better yet, has anyone else done it already? It's a lot of work (and I'll share it if anyone's interested), so I was hoping people had some suggestions.
