Crashing tools

I've been working tirelessly on this issue and have found no good solutions.  I have two sets of polygon features, one containing 565,000 and the other containing 397,000 features.  I've tried the following to execute a union:


Running a model in model builder (both in Arc and in Catalog)

Running a union in Arc

Running a model in FME


When I do any of the above, it either crashes or returns an empty feature class after reaching 100%.  I looked into the empty feature class issue and  the error code told me to change my extents to cover the whole feature class so I did, and it still won't work.


Does anyone have any experience with this or know of a better way to approach this?
