Yeah. Trooper Davin Felth was traumatised by the order to murder defenceless civilians(Owen & Beru Lars) ... There is a bit more backstory... Its a great little story in the "Tales from Mos Eisley" Anthology

I think the clonetroopers were better as far as look, they had some cooler uniforms and I liked the battle scars; I was more realistic for me that it would be dirty, scarred, punctured, and would have paint from each battalion, since they probably took a lot of pride in which part of the army they were from. The stormtroopers are just plain clean white, and have no distinction at all, I think that is because of the time period they were in, Vader wouldn't care for individuals in his army. More of an evil thing.

The stormtroopers I am guessing would actually have the better equipment and weapons as they are later on and more advanced, although the movies were made backwards so the technology looks backward.

well. the clones wore special armor for there type of duty. thee color was so they could be easily noticed what they specialize in. it was also stupid because hey if i have ships that dont like rockets why not target arc troopers? and the stormtroopers have officer uniforms and pilot uniforms etc. the are more a universal warrior. one troop could do what 3 clones could do. and the storm trooper action ... well have you seen ep.5? the storm troopers dominated hoth. the there were also at-ats but storm trooper deaths were vary small amount compared to the rebels deaths.

Hmm, the Republic stormtroopers were CGI, while the Empire's Stormtroopers were extras in costumes.

So in a fight the extras could smash the computers with their prop guns, while the computers would be powerless to fight back (though the might electrocute some of the extras as they were being smashed if they didn't cut the power first).

Even though many of these extras are probably middle aged or older by now, they can still put up a good fight. The computers may be shiny and new, but they have little defense against the onslaught!

I give this one to the Empire's troops.

even the best have bad days...ewok day was just a bad bad day.

As for the Evil Jedi...they were enemies of the Republic...the Clone Troopers did indeed take out the Evil Jedi.

as for uniform stylage...StormTroopers all the way. the way it was set, once an enemy figured out your color sets it was much easier to figure out who to shoot first....
"hey bob"
"yea"
"got two groups of clones heading this way"
"what colors?"
"im looking at Dark Blue and, i could be wrong, but pink?"
"oh, ok...take out the blues first...the pinks are standards...btw, thats just a faded red, nipplehead"

flash forward to epIV times

"hey bob jr"
"yea?"
"got some Stormtroopers coming this way"
"time to leave."
"aye"

all cgi/extra this is just a movie indeed convos aside:
Clone Troopers were the "good guys" till they "went bad" at the end of III
Stormtroopers were always the "bad guys"

movies are made that the good guys are more accurate, better fighters, and more prepared than the bad guys.

therefore: until the Clones went "bad" they were the mack daddies. as soon as they went "bad" they lost the ability to be mack daddies in combat.....sadly, STs were never the mack daddies because of that good/bad slant. the OT was writting and filmed to make the good guys, well, the good guys.

overall, though, I prefer the StormTroopers. not because of the OT thing as I look at all six now, but simply because they seemed more uniform...like the clones in epII...which is more intimidating and impressive.

It's not really fair to say stormtroopers were "bad guys". That's as simplistic as saying that all German soldiers in WWII were Nazis(they weren't, though the SS were a different story altogether). The stormtroopers, like many of the galaxy, believed in the new order, at least, at the outset.

As far as which I like, the clonetroopers seem like the more impressive of the 2, since they were portrayed that way in the films. Though, I must admit a certain nostalgic loyalty to the stormtroopers, who I felt were not really portayed as the well trained troops that they were in the original trilogy.

No, it's fair to say they're the bad guys. Because they are, whether they were evil as individuals is a different matter. Some probably just needed a job, much like your average nazi.

for the love of...

i was pointing out their portrayal in a movie as it was written. whether they were good or bad individually in that movie isnt part of the equation. teh fact is, for the movie, the good guys are more skilled and have better aims than the bad guys unless you are a member of the "extra" population then the bad guys will have superior aim and, if called for, you may get hit "accidentally." the whole point of the uniforms is to remove that individuality. similar to giving one live round and blanks to a fireing squad (if that was ever truely done). anonimity(ms) allows you teh freedom "to do many things some might consider...unnatural." har

I always said that the stormtroopers never being able to hit the main characters was a device of the filmmaking(obviously, LOL).

RotS clones are the best. Their suits are cooler than the ST and I like colour coding.

The clone troopers are my favourite. Stormtroopers suck, soldier-wise, they can't shoot straight, but clone troopers...man, they are teh pwnage. Like in the Battle of Utapau, you had that clone run ontop of that crab droid and blast the crap out of him from on top (the one where they had to use a Navy SEAL for motion capture)

That just proves it, the clones are the best, Storm Troopers are played by some guy off the street, Clones Troopers are played by elite Navy Commandos.

What does it matter, almost everyone prefers the Clones. Those who liked the Stormtroopers didn't even give a reason.

I like Swamptroopers (think thats what they are called) the best. They look so cool with the green and mossy look. But I will always like the Stormtroopers better.

Well, stormtroopers have "diluted" qualities of clones due to some of the possably less effective clone samples used, and also due to the extra population of those "recruited simple humans" used.

Equipment wise, I guess general ST equipment have around the same effectiveness as the CTs. Sure tech is supposed to be higher in ST era, but CTs are somewhat of a elite, while STs are average soldiers. Now, vehicle wise its a 50:50.

Land vehicles its STs all the way(even pets for sand troopers!!) but CTs get better arial toys.

Jango's DNA was never destroyed. Jango clones were used in addition to other hosts and conscripts.
