Well, there was SPT Layzner, in which the Earth was pretty much conquered
except for the resistance movement and its lone SPT.

And didn't the Earth get walked over pretty good by Aura Battlers in Dunbine?

Mospeada's Earth got thoroughly trashed by the Invid, who knocked down our
house of cards and then retreated tot heir hives, leaving the humans to
fight it out amongst themselves.

Lots of good story potential here, and not a Turn-A: Defender of the
Universe among them....
