Sure, it's not one of the action loaded episodes, but still I liked it. Anakin got to say "Impresive, most impresive." Also I liked the look of the world and the rebels looked like world war 1 soldiers, which I also liked.
Indeed, its a good episode. And I think i can see its importance to the main plot, by developing the character of Lux Bonteri who looks to be a main one, unless he runs off with that Onderonian girl or dies
