Seeing the original Kotor games, why not?
At least in the games, enemy soldiers wore Cortosis armor (or a layer) that protect them a bit. In the movies and novels, no normal soldier does.
I agree with you that a Jedi is....logically stronger then a soldier, I have to say. Soldier is indeed not a good example. The Sith Assassin squad from Atton perhaps? Or just Assassin?
