The 2D series really went over the top. I mean, Ventress torching 36 odd V-19 Torrents with just lasers while Anakin has to spend a while to do that or use missiles? Wut? SPHA's being blown up with lances?

I'll give the 2D series credit for setting the stage and being an enjoyable over-the-top action flick (IIRC, they were meant in-universe to be propaganda films by that kid Mace met on Dantooine, though that may just be net rumor).

The new series, after a rocky start, has really come into its own. I agree, some changes to the EU were painful (though some were just honest mistakes, IE, fighting over a gas giant in the Bothuwai system was a mistake of using a different planet in the same system than actual Bothuwai), some weren't too big a deal or can work fairly easily (adding Ahsoka in, the Mandos changing, etc.)

All in all:
-The 2D series excelled at over-the-top action film and had some genuinely funny moments (Grevious with a chainsaw (implied)? Heck yeah)

- The 3D series is much more realistic (for Star Wars, at least), and has a much bigger emphasis on plot. Still has holes/bad ones? Sure, but so does every show, and it should be noted that a lot of the bad stuff is earlier in the series, when the writers were still adjusting and getting used to the series.

Both have good sides and bad sides, but I'll take the 3D series anyday.

I agree with you the 3D series had sort of a rough start but it did come into its own. It didn't get too crazy and came up with an intelligent story line. Although, I do kind of like the crazy over the topness of the 2D series.

First the clone wars ( the new series ) isnt EU its T canon, its G canon in tv basicaly. Second what changes in the mandalorians? For me actualy make alot of sense. 1000 years passed since the great conflicts, they emerged as a more modern society. Yet roots of the old warring and clan days still linger, more then roots actualy. death watch? anyone? Truth to be told we know litle about the fallout and fate of the mandalorians as we know it in KOTOR, swtor, and old republic generaly. as we know litle of the fallout of pretty much everything that connects the old republic to the new one.
The old series is purely a joke, it was like wacthing a poor version of dragon ball z... I prefer the 3d series way more, much more connected with the movies and the lore we all know.
I must say that true to be told i think they try to connect with all of the EU lore and all that, but remember this is also George lucas here ( lucasfilms) so EU is pretty much secondary. As it stands The tV show and the movies stands above the EU.
Personaly in my opinion, EU has some good stuff, but mostly is crap. And some of it ruined my personal experience of star wars has i had know it. yet not all is bad off course.
Peace is a lie, there is only passion.

I'll say it again like I said on previous threads. The Old Ones were just a massive brawl between characters. Like it or not, but it made eachother godly. Which is a bad thing most times when it comes to Lore.


The new one has story arcs and amazing battles(Both Lazers and Lightsaber). Like I loved the recent Dooku vs Anakin. And Palps smiling as he watched made it all the better.
Hapan: "This creature has information that could lead us to a woman who has been kidnapped. We will get that information."
Luke: "This woman is a citizen of the New Republic, and if you do not take your hands off her, I will take your hands off you."
