Appearances

A New Hope

Stormtroopers led by Darth Vader were tasked with recovering the Death Star plans after it was stolen by a group of rebel spies. During their search, they murdered a group of Jawa traders and killed Luke's aunt and uncle, Owen and Beru Lars, leading to Luke joining Obi-Wan to help free Princess Leia. The two, along with Han Solo, Chewbacca, and the droids, were pulled into the Death Star via tractor beam, where they managed to rescue Leia. The Stormtroopers attempted to capture the group, leading to a series of firefights that ended with the group escaping to the rebel base on Yavin IV. Soon afterwards, a space battle ensued between Imperial and Rebel forces, which ended when Luke Skywalker destroyed the Death Star, sending a crushing blow to the Empire. 

The Empire Strikes Back

Following the battle of Yavin IV, Imperial forces led by Darth Vader began to pursue the rebels throughout the galaxy. After locating the rebel base on Hoth, the Imperial fleet arrived over the planet and deployed AT-AT Walkers to take the base. Outmatched, the rebels were forced to flee the base. During the battle, the crew of the Millenium Falcon were attacked by Star Destroyers and a small force of TIE Fighters, but managed to evade capture by hiding within an asteroid field. After failing to locate the Falcon in the asteroid field, Darth Vader hired several bounty hunters to track the Falcon. One of them, Boba Fett, tracked the Falcon to Cloud City on the planet Bespin, where Stormtroopers successfully captured the group. 

Darth Vader intended to use the group as bait to lure Luke Skywalker to Bespin, where he would be frozen in carbonite. As a test, Han Solo was frozen in the carbonite before being delivered to Boba Fett for transportation to Jabba the Hutt. Shortly after Luke arrived on Bespin, the group was freed by Lando Calrissian, and the Stormtroopers pursued the group to the Falcon, where the group managed to escape, along with Luke.

Return of the Jedi

During construction on a new, more powerful Death Star, Stormtroopers were charged with guarding the shield generator on the moon of Endor. To destroy the shield generator, a rebel strike team led by Han Solo arrived on Endor in secret. Shortly after arrival, a small chase ensued between Luke and Leia and a team of scout troopers that led to the deaths of the troopers. Later on, Imperial forces captured the strike force on Endor while the Imperial fleet ambushed the Rebel fleet over Endor. However, the Stormtroopers were unexpectedly attacked by the Ewoks, creating a diversion that allowed Han and the rebels to destroy the shield generator, leaving the Death Star vulnerable. In space, a team of rebel fighters led by Lando flew into the Death Star and attacked its main reactor, resulting in the battle station's destruction, leading to the Empire's defeat.
