Yes but compared to Gungans? Jedi are more dangerous to GG, and Maul not being arrogant? Really? It sure looked that way, with him sending sparks at Obi-Wan as he laid there hanging and he actually had somewhat of a smile on his face instead of just finishing Obi-Wan off, he actually was prone to gloating and overconfidence(I mean come on, he thought he could kill the ENTIRE Jedi Order INCLUDING the Council in their Temple). You don't let your opponent live, so you can gloat over them at their defeat as they are still alive...you do that after they are dead.

Best: Ventress - I don't know about how she's been portrayed previously but right now she's just awesome.

Worst? *shrug* I wouldn't say General Grievous, mainly because I don't really consider the previous Clone Wars series canon at least where abilities are concerned. The nature of the animation meant everything was exaggerated and overpowered. I can only compare him to Grievous of RotS - and really this guy is no weaker or stronger. And from a personality/voice acting perspective etc. he is very good and spot on. Gotta love his evil cough/laugh, and his pseudo-romance with Ventress (sort of )

Palpatine? I think he's great. I like the sinister smiles as personally I prefer his alter ego, Sidious, and these little reminders that he isn't some naive, friendly Chancellor but an evil Sith Lord are important - also adds dark undertones at the right moment. And lets face it, the Prequels were full of sinister smiles, knowing looks etc. I mean remember this. Not exactly hiding is he? Still, he's not like doing it infront of Yoda. In fact those scenes with the Jedi always have a sense of chilling irony, they suspect nothing and Sidious' persona reveals nothing.

Dooku? Potrayed well, nowhere near enough screen time. Nor enough to really judge him properly.

Bariss, can't argue there, but we shall see how they develop her.

I think Ventress is probably the best. Maul is pretty good too.

My only beef with TCW is that there are plenty of characters that you don't see much of. The first few seasons made great strides in that area with the Ryloth/Malevolence and other episodes, but it eventually fell back to Kenobi, Skywalker and Tano.

I wish Dooku had more screen time, and I think Grievous needs to be shown as the cruel General we see in other Clone Wars works. We don't really see the devastation that the Clone Wars caused. Grievous was a major contributor in that area, and I would like to see some Separatist victories from Grievous to truly show how cruel he can be.

If not even Jedi is worthy to earn his feeling, why would a Gungan be able to?

In RotS GG's chest was Force Crushed by Mace Windu, he had not recovered from it yet. Why does people always use just CW as reference? I don't want to quote stuff from other EU again.

It's super naive to show your real intention before you reveal yourself, which Palpatine never did it in the movies.
That's not sinister, he was pretending to be happy to be rescued by Anakin.

Nowhere close to CW

Because he is overconfident? Just because he doesn't find Jedi worth of his feelings, doesn't mean he isn't suseptible to gloating and overconfidence in lower beings in terms of combat.

That's not the GG we saw in other sources.

And all for what? Grievous asked himself. The timid old man backed to the bunker's rear wall? The would-be
champion of democracy, who had loosed his clone army against the merchants and builders and traders who
opposed his rule - - his Republic? Best to put the Jedi out of her misery, Grievous thought.
Sure he could get overconfident, but not like he would get stabbed by a dying Gungan.

He could because he decided to stay in a fixed position rather then move. Its one of those things, that specific circumstances had happened due to a multitude of reasons. Anyway, best to stop here I don't wanna derail the thread anymore then it already has.

Which is not what GG would do, and even Force Push could be dodged by him, why would a dying Gungans' speed be able to harm him?

Maul was bisected by Obi Wan, if it was just a dying Gungan he would dodge the attack easily.

this is why 99% of star wars is crap. The blatant fanboyism works to cover up the silliness of official works.





Why didn't Obi-Wan use Force Speed at the end of episode 1?

He was tired.
