The problem with the theory on the Combine though is that the forces they had at earth is what was suited best for control of earth so basically they couldn't have anything better.
Hey its been a while And i thought we should kick start this thread back up because that's what we nerds do.
But you all know who would and will win in the end of it? The Forerunners
Yes, the grand apex of technology, creating life on ringworlds, Space travel across the universe in a heartbeat, A planet that also has continents and water (and a small sun) on the inside of a planet along with shield technology almost unstoppable. A massive weapon that exterminates sentient life of the galaxy in which the rings are located in, much worse than a single planet killer.
My theory on the storyline of the Forrunners is that they actually made life on many of the planets mentioned in the story. Because in Halo 3 theres a specific forrunner terminal that outlines that of a rare occurence of a planet that had life on it being Earth.
For those who read the books (being me and me alone ) the UNSC had discovered over 800 planets in less thana 150-200 year period, since the forunners could actually make a planet life sustainable they probably did it alot.
Now to put the forunners up against anything (Besides the Flood) they would win.
For those wondering why the flood could have taken on the Forunners, I'll tell you that Flood parasite don't kill the host, they pry into the mind leaving only the host to watch what happens as the parasite controls everything. During that time the flood will search for all the information it can like "how to operate a ship" or "Where is another forunner planet," and so on, unless the host can try to remember one thing and keep their mind distacted the parasite will sap the host of every detail making them forget everyone and everything as the parasite uses the persons body as a vessel until Flood Colonies are vast enough to start making Pures which are true flood essence and means the Colony is thriving to the point of instead of using the bodies as vessels it will use them as food.
And thats why only and ONLY the flood kill the Forunners. They are the perfect idea for Space Zombies
