I'm not a Republic Commando fan, but I just thought some of you guys would like to know that they are going to appear on the 3rd season of The Clone Wars TV series. Take a look:

The series in general is not boring at all. I've been following it from the start, and is interesting to see how the animation has improved since the movie. Also interesting is how it helps keeping the Star Wars franchise alive.

According to IGN's report, that scene is from the latest episodes they made for season 3 and decided to bring it to CV.

That's was pretty cool. It nice to see that LA has not forgotten that they created RCs (IMO, one of the projects that had potential to be really big that was abandoned)

I have enjoyed this series so far, even though I have not been able to see season two yet. I personally think it is one of the better "kids" shows out there.

Do you think that they will just have cameo appearances or will they become supporting characters?

What? Didn't the RC exist during the Clone Wars? Then why not making a cameo? Also, they are not nearly forgotten characters, since many fans kept asking if the RC would eventually appear on TCW. And the cameo is reffering to season 3. Eventually they may use them on future seasons.

We don't yet know whether their role in this particular episode is important or not, so it's a little unfair to make that criticism.

And including them shows that they aren't forgotten, and that the show's producers at least are fans of RC.

This is good new. Republic Commandos play such a hidden role (by being spec ops they naturally would) in the clone wars that it seems most people have forgotten about them, due to the ancient release date of the game.

We believe Grievous is planning a Separatist attack on Kamino

***If it's Grievous, then adding the separatist part makes it a bit redundant, eh?***

Numerous ways where the Clone Troopers handle their blasters in a careless manner that any soldier would be made to run laps for.

The dialogue is disappoint.

The plot is disappoint.

Making the Mandos pacifists is disappoint.

Ahsoka and Anakin's attitudes are disappoint.

Most of Lucas' work after the OT is disappoint.

TCW is no different, and I find that to be a great disappoint.

I think we see that in AotC. But I don't find that in TCW...

The dialogue is disappoint.

Dialogue was never a strong point in Star Wars. Ever since the OT.

The plot is disappoint.

The plot is the same from the micro-series. It's the Clone Wars.

Making the Mandos pacifists is disappoint.

In the very episode, it is said that the pacifist way was very recent, and it was chose by the people who had nothing to gain with the various clan wars. Also, the Death Watch in the episodes critisize the whole pacifist ideal.

Ahsoka and Anakin's attitudes are disappoint.

I have to agree. However, the series is not always around those two, and they have improved their behaviour as the series goes on. Nothing comparable to the movie.

Most of Lucas' work after the OT is disappoint.

TCW is no different, and I find that to be a great disappoint.

:carms:

Well, if someone goes watching the series (or anything) with that in mind, I'm not surprised.

EDIT: For the Grievous/separatist commentary, no need to nitpick. Someone can do the same about the movies. But if it's in the movies there's no problem, right? :rolleyes:

But how has it "devoured established canon and spewed it up in a steaming heap"? I've already explained they made it so that it explain how that change happens but you seem to ignore. If it was for the Ryloth cycle or Mandalore surface, I would understand (although it's not a problem to me). And I laughed at that "well-written storyline".

I'm not sure how something that happened 4,000 years before this happens equates to all Jedi past and present being responsible 'a lot of evil that's happened'.

But, considering this is likely an echo of Traviss' blatant hatred of Jedi (even going so far as to make her own Jedi weak, self-loathing creatures) dressed up as fact in her work, then I can forgive you for thinking that. Sure, the Jedi aren't without faults, but it's laughable, sickening and just plain wrong to turn them into demonic slavers and kidnappers, and to reinforce that viewpoint at every turn in her books, without even offering a counterpoint to that view.

Karen Traviss did amazing RC books, some of the best books ive ever read, in fact, the game had a weaker plot than her books.

On another note I hope TCW dont mess this up like they did with Mandalore.

And what about Jusik or Etain huh? They were great jedi, and Traviss portrayed that. The Jedi Order then was a lot less agreeable for Jedi like Jusik and Etain than the New Jedi Order set up by Luke.

I dare say that your standards for writing quality are sorely in need of development. And while the video game's story wasn't exactly deep or complex, it was still better than hers, consisting of a standard, basic story for an FPS, with all four of the main characters perfectly interesting and likable without all her shoehorned Mandalorian culture and rape of previously established canon.

And what about Jusik or Etain huh? They were great jedi, and Traviss portrayed that. The Jedi Order then was a lot less agreeable for Jedi like Jusik and Etain than the New Jedi Order set up by Luke.
Etain and Jusik are portrayed as "great Jedi" by Traviss because she has both of them reject the Jedi ways in favor of "superior" Mandalorian training, methods, and "morals". Meanwhile, virtually every single other Jedi in the canon gets smugly lectured at or about on how amoral and hypocritical every single one of them are in contrast to the Mandalorians. And don't even get me started on the idiocy regarding Etain's fate in the Order 66 novel.

Also, unless you're fortunate enough to have not read her books in the Legacy of the Force series, then you should already know that Traviss and her Mandalorian mouthpiece characters despise the New Jedi Order as much as the old, for the same ludicrous manufactured reasons.

TCW isn't THAT BAD. They've improved it a lot since Season I. The only reason you guys hate it so much is because you THINK they ruined Mandalorains. All they did was create a new faction. Though the episode Landing at Point Rain would have been cooler if they had added clone commandos. It annoys me how on missions perfect for clone commandos, they just go ahead and use regular clone troopers. Dave Filoni actually went through a lot of trouble to give Delta Squad an appearance.

My second guess was that it was Savage Opress. Is LA just going to throw away a good character and just replace him with some mediocre one they thought of in probably just 5 minutes? People like Durge because his backstory has been elaborated on and people know what kind of stuff he's been through. If you notice you'd see that Cad Bane's backstory hasn't been shown in much detail, which is what makes a bland character. Durge is also more bad ass than Cad Bane and seeing what he did in the comics, that proves my point. Durge would probably be a better character to use because he's more well known. BTW I did know that they replaced Durge with Cad Bane, I was just hoping they'd give him an appearance too.
Also Durge's backstory was explained in a comic called Prototypes, in case you guys didn't know where I got that information from.

What do you mean? They thought of creating a new villain, instead of bringing Durge. Is that so bad? I see many people complaining about their lack of creativity, and now that they've created Cad Bane, people still complain?

Like Boba Fett in the OT. Your point?

Durge is also more bad ass than Cad Bane and seeing what he did in the comics, that proves my point.

What? This is not about being more badass or not, and even so, that point is discussable. Also, that doesn't prove nothing about your point above.

Durge would probably be a better character to use because he's more well known.

I don't think so. Using a not well known and new character takes away any predictability that everyone might have while watching him, and gives a feeling of wonderness to the character and episode.

BTW I did know that they replaced Durge with Cad Bane, I was just hoping they'd give him an appearance too.

They were going to give him an appearance. But since Cad Bane became a fan favourite, they decided to stick with him. Also, Durge's story has already been told and people would know that he would die sooner or later, so I don't see the point of bringing him back.

Why do all the cool characters in Star Wars always have to die? Just because they're bad guys? The good guys always win in TCW. The Savage Opress character looks pretty cool, but I can bet that in Season III they will make it so he dies or fails his mission in some way, just like Boba Fett and how Grevious is failing repeatedly and probably Cad Bane is next. They create a good character and then disgrace them by making them fail their mission. Seriously, give me one example of when the bad guys have ACTUALLY won in TCW, not counting Hostage Crisis, they purposely made it so they won that time. I hate shows like TCW that are repetitive. Every episode it's the same thing: there's a problem, good guys fight the bad guys, problem solved, they same the day, repeat. They can't just depict the Republic as winning all the time, they were actually losing to the Separatists for most of the war. BTW what's the point of another Clone Wars show? Everyone already knows what happens in Episode III so there's no point in showing what happened up to then.

You hate shows like TCW that are "repetitive", however, by your posts I can tell that you have watched every episode until now.

What's the point of the prequels? What's the point of every EU material until ROTJ? This is not about knowing the end, it's about how it ends, why it ends, and what happened until the end. Because I bet despite all we have about the Clone Wars, nobody knew about Yoda in Rugosa, Plo Koon and the Malevolence, Y-wings during the Clone Wars, Kit Fisto dueling Grievous, a Ryloth campaign, Luminara dueling Ventress, Anakin having a padawan, a second Geonosis capaign, Eeth Koth dueling Grievous, Cad Bane, Aurra Sing helping Boba agaisnt Mace, etc, and that it all happened during the Clone Wars.

The good guys actually won in those episodes. What I meant was, do the bad guys actually win in the end, because in those episodes the good guys win at the last minute. Think hard, at the end of the episode did the bad guys really get anywhere with their plan or gain something? It would always seem like the bad guy has a chance at winning and then out of nowhere, at the last minute, something stupid happens that screws up their plan and allows the good guys to win. BTW do you always have to have a negative response to all my comments?

Watching TCW is like reading the end of the book then reading the rest, you know whats going to happen, you are expecting it (anikin and Obi-wan do not die, something happens to ashoka which makes Anikin never speak of her again and the republic win the war). Hang on that's exactly like the original trilogy.

Well considering this is a reboot directed at a new generation of star wars fans (IMO there are three generations OT, PT, TCW) the creators assume that they don't know that Anakin & Kenobi live and that Ahsoka is not a main character at the end of the CW. We don't know if she dies...she might become a Jedi at the end of the series and leave to go fight on another planet idk. Additionally they could have a main character die and then in a next reveal that someone has the same force resurrecting power that Cade Skywalker has, but that IMO would not be a good idea because I have never heard of anyone else being able to do that.

Hang on that's exactly like the original trilogy.
Why the hate towards the OT? (I assume that it is what that was)...I don't know how the OT is like reading the end of a book and then reading the rest...The situation with TCW is more like the PT because it happens before the OT and was released after.

I dont hate the original trilogy, just saying that lucas arts were flogging a dying horse both times(in terms of the public, not hardcore fans). It resurrected it with the OT and its trying to keep it going with TCW, but animation isnt as good in real life, and theyre stretching TCW out over a short time period when lots of EU books were written, and weve already seen they messed up mandolore, what will they bump into and override the EU on next? I never said ashoka would die, just leave the picture and not be mentioned.

I understand that you never said that Ahsoka would die...I was saying that we don't know what will happen and giving two possibilities of how they might "kill off" a character.

Just to get things straight the OT is the original trilogy (ANH, ESB, ROTJ or Ep.4, Ep. 5, Ep. 6) so saying that LA resurrected SW with the OT is incorrect, it would be correct to say they resurrected SW with the PT.

Yes TCW is just a method for revenue. BUT, it is meant to be a reboot, which is why there was a little while between ROTS and TCW the movie (not enough IMO). Therefore it is not supposed to be meant for people like us, it is meant for people/kids who either have no idea what SW is, have just heard about SW (b/c it is part of our culture) through games, pop culture, etc.

I'm glad to see the Commandos on TCW! But it is not enough to get me to like the show, I have tried many times. I just ignore it. But hopefully it means more appearance by the Commandos in the future of the Star Wars universe.

@Rinku
sorry, mistype on my part, but I totally agree on all of your last point though. Pity theres nothing for hardcore fans in the foreseeable future (e.g tv, films, games, and no good books for the rest of the year except Fate of the Jedi 6 and Red Harvest - hope its as good as death troopers).

Its ok ;) (Wasn't trying to sound negative or mean was just trying to fuel debate).

Agreed I haven't been that impressed with any book since I read Death Troopers (except for FotJ).

I hope that after Fate of the Jedi concludes that there won't be anymore giant book series's. Seriously, there's NJO, LOTF, and FOTJ, we don't need anymore long book series's that are like 9-25 books long, the story gets hard to follow if you miss a few and it gets old and boring after the first 5 books. Oh and I heard that Karen Traviss is now writing Halo books. She will be writing a series of books telling about the events that happen after Halo 3, maybe we'll even learn Master Chief's fate? The series starts with a book that's a sequel to the Halo book, Ghosts of Onyx.

Uh, no.

It's not that difficult to follow if you use Wookieepedia to catch up on what has happened to characters if you've missed a book or two.

No one is making you buy or read them anyway.

Not entirely sure what this has to do with Commandos appearing in The Clone Wars, but as far as i'm concerned Haloids and GearHeads (she's writing Gears of War 3 too) are welcome to her.

^I thought that some people would like to know since they like her books and some of us on the forums are Halo fans.

I was actually expecting TX-001/Astor (yes I read your KT rant)/alexrd to say that she would make master cheif look stupid and rubbish compared to the brave, battle hardened awesome might of the spartan 1

TCW just got a lot more epic.
