The CGI one?

Not much. I gave the movie a chance and it was all I could do to not leave the theater.

The cartoon by the Samurai Jack artist (I think) was pretty awesome though, slightly biased though I be. Anyone willing to give Shaak'Ti ass kicking time is worth me giving it a watch.

From what I heard many people actually liked the new series, even ppl who usually hate on Lucas, just the movie sucked.

The movie didn't suck, that is being far too kind to it.

I never saw the CGI movie and I don't watch the series regularly, but I found what I saw of the show to be enjoyable.

Wasn't Seth Green working on some kind of Star Wars sitcom at some point? Whatever happened with that?

You mean this book? If you want more Star Wars zombies, there's also this book by the same author.

the original animated Star Wars the Clone Wars was very good. It had a lot of good action in it and some great story. Grevious was a total bad ass in that series, too. just damn, he takes on 4 Jedi no sweat.


Meanwhile, the new CGI one is fairly awful. I saw the movie on Dvd, it was just 3 episodes put together, basically.

Not very high. I haven't heard tremendously great impressions of it and I've never thought BioWare had a good handle on Star Wars.

But all that would've been forgiven if I could make a Chiss Sith of some sort. But nooooooo, Chiss can only be Imperial Agents. Wouldn't want any Chiss that people wouldn't play a Thrawn clones. Certainly not.

I read Death Troopers and I loved it. Red Harvest sounds like it's better.

You're wrong on Chiss. They can also be Bounty Hunters.

The 2D Clone Wars cartoon is good, let us know important plots before EP III.

But I don't think they have to make another series of Clone Wars. Why not something about the clones and the Jedi during Execution Order 66?

So they can be another class that isn't a Sith. Great.

Are Chiss even capable of being force sensitive? It could also be they're not allowed to be Sith because they're technically not part of the Sith Empire.

Sith is not a class, it's an organization of dark force users, if you are talking about dark force users then that's Dark Jedi.

I'm talking about the classes in TOR, Sith Inquisitor and Sith Warrior. In addition to being the two force sensitive classes available to the empire they're also part of the political system of the empire, especially the Inquisitors. The Chiss are unique among playable races in TOR in that they're not subjects of the Sith Empire, only allies, and are still technically citizens of their own, closely allied government. As such, they wouldn't be allowed to be Sith because the storylines of those two classes assume you're a citizen of and eventually politician within the Empire.

I suspect it is this. They are allowed to assist in the intellegence community and Imperial Military, but not the Sith Order.

Then I go with my "They can't be Sith" theory. They could, of course, be "dark jedi", but "dark jedi" aren't playable. To be a sith requires you to hold a position in the Sith Empire, a position barred to the Chiss.

To add on to this, all of the aliens that can be Sith, are either well respected near-human aliens raised in the Sith Cult, or former slaves that were found to be Force-sensitive.

I'm curious. What makes you say that?

I actually enjoyed KOTOR's plot more than 2 thirds of the movies... >_> It had a more satisfying conclusion than either trilogy.
