i think this is something cryptic need to fix, but for the moment if i cant complete a mission it gets one star. if you use a captain level mob and you know there is a chance of a medic then its a risk you take and you should be prepared to get bitten for it.
Ultimately, I think it must come down to writing carefully. The mobs should be scaled to be the most difficult ones possible. Anything less than maximum level can be interpreted as creating an exploit I-win map. By the same token, you should make sure not to include too many mobs as this could be seen as exploitative as well. It is better to create a one-star map then to push the envelope, in your writing process, and risk breaking the foundry rules.
