sorry but i think dave filoni is a little late in fixing the mistake now the damage is done and lots of kids will go around talking about how they know everything about madalorians and star wars. I respect the work karren travis put into the books as well as all other madalorian lore that people have created and it disappoints me to see the creators of clone wars screw it up so badly in just 3 episodes. Sorry but as far as the books go and the mandalorian history MANDALORE IS A FOREST PLANET NOT A DESERT WASTELAND and dont say "oh the other side is all forest " no it doesnt work that way plus were did this government come from NO mandalor doesn't have a government it is ruled by the madalor there is no such thing as queen or government on mandalor. The deathwatch are a splinter group of mandalorian warriors that jango fett fought against when he was younger and is the whole reason he became a mandalorian because they killed his parents and he is adopted by REAL madalorians and they trained him. The deathwatch are a very small group and do not appear often even boba in his later year encounters them. Another thing about madalorians is that every man woman and child are warriors that is the culture and tradition there is no civilized living they live in huts and shacks except for the occasional small town.

Another mistake is the casting of boba fett in the clone wars he is just a whiny little kid and gets the slave I destoyed and destroys jangos helm like Eillack already said none of that happens. yes boba comes back in a later episode and is a bounty huner but were is his armor and even though he is a bounty hunter now he still whines from time to time.

Another thing about star wars clone wars is the casting of the nightsisters yes they evil and use the force but the way they use it in the clone wars makes it look like magic and voodoo NO doesnt work that way clone wars writers. Another thing that is wrong is that the nightsisters are shown as a none human species WRONG.

The dothomirians are all human but a few have the ability to use the force and the ones that use the force in rage are cast out of whatever keep (town or castle type structure) they live in and are looked down upon by other dothomirians and some of those that are cast out formed the nightsisters. ANOTHER thing that is wrong is that in the clone wars the zabrak (darth maul species for those of you who dont know) are shown to live on dothomir and are the male oposites of the nightsisters NO ZABRAK DO NOT LIVE ON DOTHOMIR THERE HOMEWORLD IS IRIDONIA AND THERE ARE FEMALE ZABRAK TOO.

Star Wars: The Courtship of Princess Leia is the first time that dothomir and the nightsisters apear in star wars. If you really like star wars and not the crap that these clone wars writers keep turning out go read the books they are way better. sorry for the long post i just want people to know actual facts if you really want to know about the nightsisters look up the courtship of princess leia its a good book.

I don't like Clone Wars at all. Reasons are pretty simple.

Star wars as such gave you a specific idea over the galaxy and individuals in it. This certain vibe was never ammended, or altered, NOT even by most of the EU material. It still maintained this 'SW Charme', where things seemed a bit out of place. Surreal. It had a charme like no other series.

Clone Wars turned it into an action show for Kids. And if not for clone wars, SWTOR would've never ended up with the art-style it has, infact i'm sure that if not for CW, we'd have a far more realistic looking SWTOR. But that's the minor issue with it. Clone Wars feels redundant and pointless. You know exactly what will happen a few years from now on, how anything these characters will do will affect the outcome of the galaxy. It's simply without any suspense if you know already that 'Obi Wan / Anakin survive, none of the major cast dies and the results are already determined.' Where's the suspense in that? What's the point in watching a War which' conclusion you already know? The only viable interest people might have is in the newly introduced characters, but then again, what point is there to cheer for the fate of characters who's involvement in the large picture will end up minute? Ahsoka Tano will never have any major importance in the generic SW storyline, nor will any other of the Clone Wars introduced characters. They just fill a time-space undefined by Lucas, simply because he himself considered it too boring to be included in a movie. That alone should make you realize that CW was doomed to be a lackluster rendition of SW storytelling.

The entire Artstyle of CW is simply hideous. I don't really enjoy watching cardboard Box faces talking, in a world which remembers you more of a cheap 90's cartoon rather then Star Wars. I remember going to the cinema on the CW pilot only to be so majorly disappointed that I vowed never to watch anything in relation to CW again. I broke that promise because everyone was telling me how awesome it was, only to get disappointed once more. Asajj Ventress becoming a major player? Please, she was the muster child of cannon fodder Dark Jedi, now they're making her out to be some epic warrior. Darth Maul returning? Demeaned the value of Episode I in it's entirety. Mauls Death served as prime example of how a Jedi can triumph over darkness if he lets' himself be led by the light, and how light conquers darkness as such. CW Went on to take a fudge on that symbolism a la 'lol he never died'.

Now the biggest reason why I don't watch CW, at all. Is Ahsoka Tano. The Jedi NEVER trusted Anakin entirely, they knew of his personal conflicts, of the depth of his issues, and the ONLY Jedi that ever stood entirely behind him was his master, becaused he vowed so to Qui Gon. If not for Obi Wan, the Jedi wouldn't have indoctrinated Anakin in first place. Even after he earned his reputation later on, He was still not considered a master, neither respected as such.

..And they give 'that' guy a student to teach? Seriously? That's insulting to about every major Master character in the entire SW universe at that period. 'Oh hey let's give the angry kid a student to screw up'.

I'm sorry, but CW as such is nothing else for me then a story build on lazy excuses and plotholes in order to create a money-making machine to milk the young kids that wheren't around when the original SW hit the screen. and it's 'dark' tone is nothing else then an attempt to interest the slightly older audiences aswell.

Perhaps I'm just a hater, but it's still my opinion that CW is by far the worst thing to ever hit star wars.

Kinect is actually BETTER, yes, better then CW. Kinect counts to those 'we don't take ourselves so seriously' SW products, like the christmas special or that Ewok planet offshoot starring kids fighting a nightsister. CW tries to sell itself as a valid addition to SW lore.

1st.: If you actually watch the show, you would actually know Deathwatch wants to go back to the old ways. And that was happening the Mando comics. Turning to peaceful ways isn't a new thing. In the comic the supercommando Codex was created by Jaster Mereel. Which basically said, if Mando's still want to fight become a soldier or a mercenary. And then there could be a peaceful civilization form the Mando's who didn't fight.

2nd: Mando's a Forest Planet? http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/File:Jasterdeath.jpg that sure doesn't look Forest in the background. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/File:Sundari_Desert.jpg Does that look Forest Too you? And Geographically, its highly unlikely for an entire planet to be one certain type of land. Though it has happened a few times before in SW.


3. You do know that Boba is 16 about by the time of TCW...

4. Read a book with the Nightsisters in it, the Clone Wars captured the way they do their stuff perfectly. They practice Dark Arts using a Book to tell hem to utilize the Planet's Dark Energies. They are described as Witches thousands of times. What does a witch do? Practice Magic.

5. Okay, lets talk Zabraks. Are you saying they can only be born on Iridonia? Thats like saying Human's can only be born on Coruscant. Also Darth Maul is a Dathomir Zabrak, that is his species. An Exiled Night-Sister gave Maul to Sidious. Read Darth Plagueis. And the group of Zabraks you saw on Dathomir were the Nightbrothers.


You stressed allot over what... 8 episodes? Out like 50?

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."

1.sorry i was not specific enough. Mandolorians dont have a government and never have had one there one true leader is the madalor the people who made CW just wanted an excuse to put in madalorians and did it in a horrible way that makes no sense.

2. THAT PICTURE IS NOT OF MADALORE have you even read that comic im guessing you havent it even says what planets name the planet is called korda 6 its not madalore and yes madalore is a forest planet and the excuse the CW creators give is that somehow part of mandalore (pretty much all of it from what the cartoon shows) is a white desert wastland because the galactic republic somehow destroyed that part of the planet turning it into a desert (dont know how they would get away with that since the republic is about peace) WHEN DID THIS BATTLE HAPPEN the last war the republic had is like hundreds of years before the clone wars ***. If you have read any of the books and other things like the comics you should know what madalore looks like.

3. what does him being 16 have to do with anything ?

4. yes the nightsisters have a weird way of using the force like magic but really RAISING THE DEAD IS ABSURD dont get me wrong it was cool but really raising the dead no the force doesn't work that way like i said it may be powerful but reaminating the dead takes way more power than what the nightsisters are capable of. and just because they are described as witches doesnt somehow give them superpowers of awesomeness they have a limited ability with the force even star wars forces of corruption got it right even if the rest of it is none cannon

5. you are correct on that sorry for not researching more yes he is a dothomirian zabrak but the funny thing is he was born on iridonia -_- gotta love the inconsistency he is born to a human mother and a zabrak father -_- okayyyyy another thing i want to add to the nightsisters subject is that ........ THEY DONT HAVE SPACE TRAVEL AND HAVENT EVER LEFT DOTHOMIR. really what is so hard to keep strait here. Another thing is that males (human males not this stupid zabrak thing) are considered a lesser cast and are used as slaves to the woman (who are soldiers and leader) who when they want to can pick one do the deed and throw them back into servitude.

I have read almost all the books and comics and know most of these facts by heart but i do use wookipedia sometimes to get my facts straight because it is updated by loyal fans to star wars however much lucas arts screw up.
