Do you agree with their culture and way of doing things over all? Like where their reasons valid for starting the Mandolorian Wars that eventually destroyed the jedi order?

You know that mandalore was a pupet of the sith empire all along. They were meant to probe and weaken the republic.

To answer, no I don't think Mandoa culture is agreeable.

Aside from Traviss' mary-suing of the Mandalorians, they exist in a state of permenant war and preparedness for war. It's been shown before that if they don't have a good enough Mandalore or conflict to unite behind, they scatter to individual clans.

Furthermore, their state of permenant aggressiveness has never really endeared them to the Republic at large. Most viewed the Mandalorians like early europeans viewed the Vikings. You tried your best to appease them or **** of the way of the war du jor.

The problem I see is that Mandalorian culture has no way to really exist properly in times of peace. They're supposed to die in glorious or honorable combat. That leads to insanely high rates of attrition as Mandos aren't known for retreating, no matter how suicidal the odds are.

Well I guess they must have forgotten during the mandalorian wars, cause they surrendered.

It's not like they are a bunch of god-men who aren't willing to back down no matter what. Everyone has a point where they know they are beaten, for some, it's just a little beyond death. The fact that the Mandalorians aren't all dead by this point is a testament to the fact that they have some survival instinct.

I know that, was just merely responding to Wolf's part about them never retreating n such.

Yes. The Jedi order was wiped out after the Mandolorian wars. Revan, Malak, the Exile, and other Jedi defeated the Mandolorians at Malachor V.

As far as Mandolorians. They are fierce warriors. No doubt.
