The clones simply could not handle the amount of Dark energy that Palpatine possessed. Only his physical body, which had time to grow along with his power, could handle it. Palpatine obviously knew this would happen, because as I recall he had multiple clones.

and the only way to solve this was to possess the body of a strong force user and that is why he tried to possess the newly born Anakin Solo, correct?

It's been real but the game just wasn't worth the sub for me anymore.

Yes. The clones were insensitive to everything, including the Force. Had the clones been connected to the Force, Palpatine could have lived forever through his essence transfer ability. The only suitable host body would be a body that is Force sensitive. I think he was going after Anakin Solo was because any Jedi or Sith could have the will to fight him off or commit suicide to stop Palpatine, so a child was the perfect host. Especially a descendant of Anakin Skywalker, young Solo was perfect because he was strong in the Force even as a newborn.
