Order 66 is genuinely fun to play, which is why it's such a shame that the game's UI is so fundamentally broken.
"Enact Order 66" is Palpatine's way of commanding you to kill all the Jedi--a move anticipated by everyone but the Jedi themselves, who were too busy doing nude yoga in their hippie commune to notice that every single clone soldier had gone all Dark Side.
Order 66 is compelling because it requires you to strategically engage your enemies.

The Commando Order is inseparably linked with the announcement in the Wehrmacht communiqué of 7 October 1942, for this announcement in the Wehrmacht communiqué heralded the actual Commando Order.

Once the Commandos were fully grown, they were divided into groups of four, nicknamed 'pods', after the aiwha hunting pods that lurked beneath the surface of Kamino's waters.
The newly created Commandos were instructed and trained by the most elite of warriors, people such as the Cuy'val Dar, a group of brilliant training sergeants hand-picked by Fett, and renowned figures such as Sergeant Walon Vau.

Now, the Hitler Order of 18th October, 1942, was actually carried out in a number of instances, of which we have the documentary proof for several.
The order referred to directs, in paragraph 5, that enemy soldiers who are taken prisoner in open combat or surrender within the limits of normal combat operations (such as large-scale landing operations and undertakings) are not to be treated according to paragraphs 3 and 4.
Number 5 of the Order is to be clarified to the effect that the Order is not valid for those enemy soldiers in uniform, who are captured in open combat in the immediate combat area of the beachhead by our troops committed there, or who surrender.

During the interrogation I was told that Captains Goat and Hessler made this order, and in reply to that I said, "It is quite immaterial, I am responsible for the order." Moreover, the main point of discussion on that order was whether one ought to issue such an order.
Secondly, that that had a military aim ordered by the Naval Operations Staff for which, as is always the case in war, a certain risk would have to be taken; and, thirdly, that the significance of that paragraph appeared to all of us to be unimportant, the results being always poor.
