I'm a little late to the party but never mind.

This arc started off admittedly rather dull, and it took me a while to get used to the characters. But I liked the ending, and that explosion was really awesome (in fact the best thing about this arc has been the visuals, really nice).

However there seems to one small plot hole if you will, with this episode:

Anakin Skywalker was aboard the space station. So why did the Separatists attack? Sidious assumedly knew about all major Separatist movements through Dooku, so wouldn't he know about a major plot like this that could have turned the tide of the war? And if he did, how come he was willing to let the Chosen One die? Which he planned from the word go to make his apprentice? I suppose Sidious could have been unaware of this plot, but it seems somewhat unlikely.

And yes, R2 was perhaps wearing a little bit too much plot armour, that could have been done more believably...

Altogether though, an enjoyable side track to the general 'pew pew'. I look forward to the next arc.
