There is an explanation for the clone's lack of space combat proficiency. And although never really explained in the movies, the recent Starwars game, Battlefront II, in its cut scenes, explains that the republic clones didn't have enough pilots, so many of the pilots where actually ground combat troops that where pressed into filling pilot roles and given crash courses in space combat. Their clone training didn't really cover space combat or was glazed over in favor of the ground combat. When we see the clone trainging/growing facility on Kamino in AOTC I don't remember seeing any of the clones doing space fighter simulations, which I thought was kind of odd. But there you have it, most of the pilots wheren't really pilots at all. Its like taking a marine that has been trained to hold his own with a squad and saying hey we don't have enough pilots, here read this manual on how to fly an F-16 and get up there and take out some MIGs.

well, actually its the weaponary design's fault.

If droid fighters are always cramped together, then weaponary with AoE effect would work on them more efficiently. So it would only be reasonable if they have some "time bomb" like weapon dropping out from the tail of those arc 170s

Well, if the Republic were to use weapons like the Slave 1's bomb, the Droid fighters probably wouldn't be flying cramped together.

Well, the reason they died is probably that they really couldn't hit every fighter in the swarm of droid fighters.

The Jango Fett clones were extremely...elite and well trained. The Imperial Stormtrooper ranks are filled from new recruits or their clones. The clone pool got diluted. They are not as good.

- Majin Revan




- Former Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, Star Wars: Battlefront, and Star Wars: Battlefront II modder. Used to go by the name "Majin Revan."

Actually that whole sequence was badly made, some dogfights would have been nice. :|

It'd be cool if they made like, an extra scene that follows a squad of clones for a bit during a battle.




The following tale of alien encounter is true and by true, I mean false. Its all lies. But they're entertaining lies, and in the end isn't that the real truth? The answer is no.

This is how I see it. Lucas made it so that clones were only good sometimes, he made it so Stormtroopers stink at shooting and die way to fast, He never showed any blood or gore during any battles (which ticks me off). The way I see it he messed up 1,2,3, and 6. I love the movies but I have to admit that he should have considerd more things when making the movies.
