    Personally,my biggest problem is that Disney didn't bring something new on the table with the new trilogy.Force Awakens was pretty much a redux of A New Hope and the Last Jedi tried something different but failed in most parts.

    The Clone Wars CG series, despite a rocky start, did sort of redeem parts of the prequels-it filled up some of the plot holes, was generally well-written and made Anakin a far more likeable (and better acted, oddly enough) character.

    While the Micro series ending led into ROTS, I think they were trying to do that more with Clone Wars towards the end-Ashoka was written out, Order 66 was elaborated on, as well as the Jedi Ghosts etc....arcs dealing with the Death Star, Ventress's fate etc. were also made but not completely finished (Although they're still canon). Had the show continued, I'm guessing it would've perhaps dealt with the lead up to the battle of Coruscant and Padme.

    The Clone Wars CG show was great. It was particularly nice to see a well-written Anakin Skywalker who's a hero, a good person, and a respected Jedi while still having flaws that would eventually lead to his downfall. The first season was a little rocky, but by season 2 it was golden.

    It still couldn't salvage the Anakin/Padme romance though. Maybe if it spent less time showing how Padme is the ultimate pacifist and more time showing what they have in common that would have worked.

    I thought it fleshed out the opposites attract and Romeo & Juliet aspects of their relationship better. Good reasons to turn to the Dark Side, IMHO.

    That and Durge was awesome, he was planed to be a major advisory until the end but Lucas wanted to introduce General Grievous (it does explain the wheezing that he is doing in the beginning of ROTS). Durge was going to be reintroduced in the CG cartoon but the idea was scraped and Cad Bane took his place. Asajj Ventress is also introduced in the minis. Now I got to go watch them again.

    It still gave her the best line she ever had in any medium: "I still can't believe they let you teach."

    I think both pretty much started to show up early in the comics as well, particuarly the "Zombie Gungan" arc. Interesting thing is the early comics didn't have Durge be an Akira-like monster; more just a sort of bounty hunter.

    Kudos to this being funny and well thought out at the same time.
