New to the forums and just finishing up our campaign from the core set.

When playing the expansions for a campaign, can you bring other heros/villians/allies from all the other sets? Example: can you play Diala Passil in the return to Hoth expansion and bring Boba Fett into the game from the Twin Shadows expansion.

With this in mind, can any side/forced missions be played even if they are not a part of that campaign. Example: Boba Fett mission played during Bespin Gambit campaign?

Yes. Put everything in their respective supplies, then perform the campaign setup as instructed.

Any hero can be played in any campaign. Any imperial class deck can be selected for any campaign. All non-unique deployment groups can be used in any campaign (but note the Habitat restrictions).

When you follow the agenda deck creation rules, you can choose any 6 sets into the agenda deck. So, you can include Boba Fett's agenda set in any campaign, but note that minicampaigns do not normally have side missions. (You can win him in Twin Shadows by other means though.)

(And you can't earn Jabba by any method during the Jabba's Realm campaign.)

If you house-rule, then anything is possible. But it's better to play by the rules first before making adaptations.

As an added question here:

I have the core set, and we are going to start playing, but I'd like the players to have some added choices of their starting character.

Which expansions have other starting player characters that can be used with the core campaign (if any).

Which ones do you recommend?

Thanks,

All of the boxed expansions come with heroes. The small-box expansions have 2 each, and the big-boxes have 3 each.

The heroes from Twin Shadows are pretty hard to play well. All others have some great heroes, but some are not that easy to learn to use for a first-time player. MHD-19 and Loku from Return to Hoth are probably the easiest to grok.

Vinto and Shyla from Jabba's Realm have a lot of cool factor.

The heroes from the core box are still strong in comparison to newer heroes, and you have 6 to choose from.

If you're following the rules strictly, there are time-period limitations on mixing some side missions with campaigns from expansions. I know the Return To Hoth campaign can't include Luke or Han if played as the designers intended.

Buy hey, it's your game now...

But if you play the main campaign with added Hoth, you're good, officially. Expansion campaigns can be very cinematically specific.
