In The Force Awakens: within a few minutes we see legit friendship.
In Attack of the Clones: we see nothing within a few hours.

Do I like the Confederacy of Independent star systems? At one time I did find them intriguing... At one time. And more so that the Republic. I was really curious, really intrigued, and really interested in them from about 2002 to about 2005. When they were introduced, they seemed kind of gray morality with dark undertones. It was obvious they had people connected to the Dark Side, but simultaneously on many occasions, they actually had valid points.

They lost faith in the Republic, they seen the senate as corrupt, and there was a whole lot more. During Episode II, we find out that planets are leaving the Republic, and now the Republic will vote on a Military Creation Act. People were yelling in the senate room, while news cameras floated around Palpatine. I believe that act was the last straw because it got passed. I suppose the people who left the Republic to join the Separatists did not want their children fighting in any wars.

Then the Clone Wars broke out, and the droid army seemed menacing. The B1's were emotionless things. When the Super Battle Droids first appeared, they came walking out of the shadows and made Mace Windu jump away. These droids were killing Jedi left and right. Eventually the Jedi were surrounded. The Separatists was really intimidating and mysterious in their early days. Those traits even continued in Republic Commando.

So what changed? Many of the younger fans might not like my answer. Well... The Clone Wars t.v. show happened. It is an okay show, and it does have its moments, but it is the reason I lost interest in the Separatists. When the show was first announced, I was curious about how it would play out. It was called "The Clone Wars" after all. I was hoping for in-depth behind the scenes on each side of war. The show ended up being largely one-sided. It kind of took away that gray area that was once there and made everything more metaphorically white and black. The show displayed the Republic as morally correct, and the Separatists as nothing but bad guys. It kind of distance itself from the whole, government becoming more and more flawed. The Separatists was also portrayed as more comical and humorous. That guy in the cowboy hat who created the show also drew the droids weird and more comical. The Super Battle Droids looked like hunchbacks, while the B1 became more silly and stupid. The Separatists lost their mystery, valid points to make, and seriousness; which in-turn made me think, oh. Well... Nevermind. And I sort of lost interest in them.

I am certain fans will say, "stop paying attention to the political aspects of Star Wars, Larry-3. We only care about the action scenes, militaries, and lightsabers!" Well, the military and lightsabers are nice, but they are not the only thing I care about. I actually really do like the politics. In gives more depth to Star Wars. It makes me want to care more about each war. I cannot really support a faction unless I know their motivates and what each one is about. And the political climate in Star Wars has always intrigued me. Lucas really put a lot of thought into the politics. In fact, one could give a lecture on it. The politics really are well-done.

Anyway, back to my original point, at one time, I was actually really intrigued by the Separatists... At one time.

I hope you all enjoyed one of my many nerdy moments, ha.

CSI is THE most pathetic faction in SW. They had no real independent leadership. They were the bitches of Darth Sidious & Darth Tyranus who controlled them.

So, I'm interested to know whether you guys think that Jedi Temple Guards are Jedi Sentinels. I got into a debate about this topic not to long ago. The person I was arguing with said that they were because they had yellow lightsabers.

Personally, I do not think that they're the same because their jobs differ very greatly and it is never stated that they are Sentinels. I'm not even sure if Jedi Sentinels are canon at this point.

"The Rebellion seems to me to be just as bad as the Empire. They may not have the true evil members like Palpatine, Vader, etc. But it seems that they consistently engage in tactics that result in the deaths of hundreds of thousands, if not millions of soldiers. Soldiers that are probably just serving under the idea that it's their duty to protect against the terrorists that call themselves The Rebellion.

So, since it seems that the Rebellion's modus operandi is to just destroy as much Imperial equipment and manpower as possible, how can they consider themselves to be good and just?"

Is the Rebellion really good?

I can not belive how some of you guys have a major moral compas malfunction.
The Empire prospered ONLY 'cause of forced labour & slave labour. The Empire was a rascist government. They were willing to wipe out the populations of entire planets just to get to their resources.
Attacking military instalations is a legite tactical move in times of war. But The Empire targeted massive civilian targets. They slaughtered them & the survivors were sent to slavery. And the Empire isn't just evil 'cause of the Sith Lords that ruled it. The Imp. Ruling Council members were one of the most corrupt & psychopats in the Empire. The Moffs were genocidal megalomaniacs. Amd they ALL owned slaved. The ISB was comprised only of extremly brutal & sick people who tortured not only men & women, but children as well. The COMPNOR was basically what Göbels' propaganda ministry was. The Empire in it's entirety was evil, corrupt, decadent & brutal.
And any of you who claim the Empire to be good or even a little good are ignorant fools, who haven't even read any books.
How stupid can you idiots be??!!

Or do you condone slavery, exploitation of child labour, torture, government sanctioned genocides & mass murders and rascism?
Either way you are dumb as fuck.
Lucas created the Empire to mirror the Nazi Germany & other fascist govermants. He created the Empire to be evil!

Star Wars and horror together, is there a better combination? Good story, much different than what some might be used to. I enjoyed enough to read it a couple of times. If you haven't you should.

Boba's armor can deflect Lightsaber strikes. I'm sure Iron Man's phazers won't do a much better job.

Or you know

Maybe the Imperial Officer is just a midget.

You never know.
 
So....Some new images have come out of the new Empire Magazine Rogue One issue ... including this one. I don't know what to think. It seems the new Deathtroopers are really tall. Like giants. This would partly explain why the Black Series figures of the Deathtroopers seem so tall and skinny. That being the case I think the Deathroopers may be droids - unless the Deathroopers are some new and very tall alien species.

What say you?
