A number of settings can grind the combined of forces of 40k into dust and treat all of it as pest extermination. Zones of Thoughts' Beyonder civilization. The Culture and its major opponents. The Xeelee, or the humanity from the Xeeleeverse. And Star Wars beats 40k too, just it will be an actual war, instead of 40k forces just being blown to bits by enemy forces they cannot even detect.

No. The only things in 40k verse that have a chance of taking on SW Galaxy are Chaos (corruption, lol) and Necrons. Everyone else's fleets are so damn slow, that by the time they reach any important SW planed, SW fleets have already glassed a thousand of planets in their rear.

That's debatable. They were a galaxy wide empire but they were destroyed by the Flood, which is arguably a less dire threat than something like the Tyranids or Chaos. Their only hope was to kamikaze the whole galaxy.

Not true at all. The Flood are a tier above Tyranids because they are extra-dimensional. Any infected hosts knowledge and memories goes into the gravemind and stays there, even if the host is destroyed. They aren't a collection of creatures, they're one entity inhabiting trillions of bodies at once. The gravemind could talk to you face to face on one side of the universe, have a million conversations all the way across at the same time.

Forerunner are low level Culture tier, they'd be right at home in that setting. A single promethean warrior could simultaneously control a million small attack craft through his suit's ancilla AI. Their space combat focused on redirecting enemy fire through tears in reality and ai augmented reaction speeds bordering on nanoseconds. The largest Forerunner capital ships were 100km in length and made mostly of almost indestructable hard light, allowing the ship to change configuration and shape instantly even in combat.

Their production base was also insane; they could complete construction of even their largest ships within a day thanks to their hardlight composition.

Because they either were made by or are these guys. The Flood test sentient species. They let humanity live after they proved themselves.

The Forerunners tried to stand against the waves and destroyed themselves. The Flood, meanwhile, still live with all their stolen knowledge and intelligence as long as a single spore remains.

I've always thought that was the weirdest aspect of the flood. A gravemind can be put into a timelock where it experiences a billion years from its point of view as it ages into dust, then in the outside world a few seconds later a new one is formed that is basically the exact same being.

The fact that Precursor buildings and artifacts are indestructible to everything but a weapon that targets neurological pathways has to be related

“But most humans are immune,” the Didact said. Then he seemed to understand, and lowered his great head between his shoulders like a bull about to charge. “Can the Flood choose to infect, or not to infect?”

The wide, flat head canted to one side, as if savoring some demonic irony.

“No immunity. Judgment. Timing.”

“Then why turn Mendicant Bias against its creators, and encourage the Master Builder to torture humans? Why allow this cruelty? Are you the fount of all misery? ” the Didact cried out.

The Captive’s strange, ticking voice continued. “Misery is sweetness,” it said, as if confiding a secret. “Forerunners will fail as you have failed before. Humans will rise. Whether they will also fail has not been decided.”

“How can you control any of this? You’re stuck here—the last of your kind!”

“The last of this kind.”

The head leaned forward, crimping the torso and front limbs until one leg actually separated and fell away, shooting out a cloud of fine dust. The Captive was decaying from within. What sort of cage was this? The misty blue light seemed to vibrate and a high, singing sound reverberated through the hemisphere, shaping razor-sharp nodes of dissonance. But the Captive still managed to speak.

“We are the Flood. There is no difference. Until all space and time are rolled up and life is crushed in the folds . . . no end to war, grief, or pain. In a hundred and one thousand centuries . . . unity again, and wisdom. Until then—sweetness.”

The Didact stepped forward with a sharp grunt. He lifted his hand and a panel appeared in the air, shaping controls. The Captive’s head squared on its torso, as if bracing for what it knew was about to come.

“It is your task to kill this servant,” it said, “that another may be freed.”

Warhammer FB seems to have magic on a much more tactical scale, but magic in LotR is like war winning nukes or some shit. Battle at Helms deep for instance.
