Not anymore, you should have chosen the Dark Side option when you had the chance :
so you would have skipped the entire fight.
Just don't fight the waves too close to the cave's entrance, you'll be overwhelmed. Try dragging them towards the soldiers NPC, they'll help.
Hopefully you are at least lvl 28 and have disable droids, that helps a lot.
I did it on my annihilation marauder at lvl 30 with Quinn. Thanks to my disable droids skill and his carbonized stream we could CC a lot of mobs and didn't have too many issues.
