Hanging out on the planet Hoth all day can be boring. It's basically a white desert with nothing but snow, robots, giant yeti monsters, and a half-finished movie theater. Troops stationed on Hoth get to see one, maybe two epic battles tops, otherwise they throw snowballs at each other and drink lots of cocoa. Yup, cocoa.
This all changed with the invention of the Death Star Ice Sphere Tray. Not only could they have fancy ice for cold beverages, they could make Death Star chocolate truffles, and even Death Star soap! And as a bonus, playing baseball on the planet Hoth has never been easier! It only takes a few minutes to create an irresponsibly dangerous baseball and, when the guns become useless from freezing, you've got a baseball bat!
