Season 6 of The Clone Wars showed us that order 66 was implanted in every clone's brains since they were embryos. Why did Sidious waited until half Episode III to trigger it? He could have done it much early.

Because the Jedi Order would have ROFLstomped the Clones in a straight up fight. He had to wait for them to spread themselves thin across the galaxy. Let's face it, if Yoda was at the Temple during Operation: Knightfall, the 501st would have been SOL.

I don't know what SOL means, but I assume they got killed.


Also...
Jedi weren't really thrilled about the Clones either. No one knew they were created and suddenly they were there as a happy coincidence, scepticism of a lot of Jedi would have ruined the plan.
Another reason why he waited with with Order 66 is his own infiltration in the senate, to become the leader, getting more influence and power.
The fact that he decided on taking Anakin as his apprentice slowed down the proces as well, as Anakin needed to be turned more from the light.

One objective of the Clone Wars was to turn public opinion against the Jedi so that when Order 66 was issued, the general public would believe whatever reason he came up with for killing the jedi and be relieved they were gone.

The whole point of his plan was to become and stay emperor. That is why he orchestrated the war in the first place. He did not want to give order 66 until the perfect time when he was thought to be a hero by the masses and the jedi were spread thin as well as had lost much of their public support. A lot of the clone wars series demonstrated how the people were losing faith in the jedi.

Also, the emperor wanted the most powerful jedi in the order to be his apprentice. If he gave order 66 before Anakin turned then there would be no way Anakin would side with him.

I actually loved the prequels because to me it was the story of how the emperor manipulated the entire galaxy and that he was much more than some old guy that could shoot lightning. The prequels had some faults (obviously) but they made me love the emperor far more than Darth Vader.

I loved the originals very much but there were more plot holes in them than the prequels such as the rebels winning because they blew up the deathstar. There were still far more star destroyers than rebel ships.

Not really a plot hole there, considering the war still continued even after the 2nd DS was destroyed. Sure at the end there was celebration, but that didn't mean the Empire was done.

No the plot hole has to do with where they celebrated. If they had retreated and then celebrated it would be very believable, but they would not have lasted much longer after the death star was destroyed.

It is fine though. All movies have plot holes. It didn't stop the original movies from being my favorite movies ever. I was just making a point.

The rest of the Imperial fleet had retreated right when the 2nd DS was destroyed(with the exception of Grand Admiral Teshik who fought alone for 3 hrs and was later captured), so where the Rebels celebrated was fine.

I mean the Imperial fleet had just witnessed the lost of two of the most powerful weapons the Galactic Empire had, which killed any kind of fighting within the rest of the Imperial fleet, so they retreated.

Personally I think the whole point of season 6 was to make the Jedi look as BIG of idiots as possible. I mean look at it from the point of the jedi:

We just found out Dooku was the real purchaser for the clones, the clones have these chips in them that was withheld from us knowing about it and apparently clones have this deep dark desire to kill Jedi... OH STANG! GET EVERY SINGLE CLONE BACK HERE ASAP AND PULL THOSE CHIPS! Or just keep this info to ourselves and hope for the best.
These new J. J. Abrams movies are just a bad dream. Someone wake me up when Timothy Zahn says he's directing a SW film.
