Hello there! I've gotten the idea to post this in the gaming and technology thread because Star Wars has been bugging the CRAP outta me! This thread is just me ranting about it; feel free to join in and comment on my horrid, yet wonderful rant! Can you bare reading through it all!? Let's hope so! Lol. There are a few spoilers for Episode 7, so if you want to see it, don't read this!
This is similar to UTD^Force's Islam Topic, except here I ranted and you guys could ask my stance on specific area's of Star Wars or express your own opinions about, or express comments related to my ranting! I apologize if there are grammar errors! I can't pick all of them out ya know!
Okay first things first, I'll just say it plain and clear, I am a prequel fan. I do NOT like the classic Star Wars from the 70's and 80's, nor do I like the new ones in present day. Star Wars "fans" don't know how hard it really is being a prequel lover. They diss the movies, hate the characters, the games, and its pure soul. While I appreciate everything about them. I loved all the prequel movies (though Episode I was a bit iffy at times, but hey who doesn't like Darth Maul?) Episode III being my favorite. The times of the Clone Wars simply, in my opinion, outmatch the over driven/rated original trilogy, and I well tell you why.The New Star Wars Movies
We've been blowing up the death star for more than 40
years! How much can you possibly blow up that thing? In Episode 7 we blew up the Death Star Jr. (Starkiller except bigger and "better" well if it's better why did it get destroyed again?)and the same premises in the original trilogy appear in the new Star Wars. Well I'm sick of Star Wars! Empire this, Rebels that. People drool over Episode 7 when it's just Episode 4 all over again! OOOO look, Kylo Ren in Han Solo's son! There's that family relation again *cough* Luke and Vader *cough*. Oooh we're gonna take the X-wings and change the red stripes to blue! They're completely different now! Let's change the Empire's name to the First Order! Now they're different! Hooray we have something new that will surely lure new fans. And the sad thing is, it worked. Fans are blinded by their "Star Wars nostalgia glasses" and do not pay close attention to the actual STORY of Episode 7.
Everything is just a copy from Episode 4. Knock, knock, Earth to Star Wars fans, isn't Jakku just Tatooine? DUH!
They just claim it's good because it's Star Wars, and you can't possibly hate these new movies more than the Prequels! That's pure bull crap right there! Just hearing the same dead lines "Han Shot first" or "I've got a bad feeling about this" or "I am you.....[family relation] bugs the living crud outta me! Just hearing of all the new star wars games based on the classics of the new movies all about Han's past and Episode 8, 9 , 10 makes me cringe!The Prequels
Now getting onto the other side of Star Wars I ACTUALLY like.....
People highly HIGHLY over look the prequels as pieces of JUNK. As with Episode 7, if one would pay attention to their true story and ignore the "flaws", one would see that they're no all bad; and definitely not AS BAD as Episode 7. (Anakin may have been whiny, but Kylo Ren far surpasses him for whinyness!).
In my opinion the Clone Wars Era is the the most imaginative part of Star Wars. You have super awesome characters that are wholesomely unique! General Grievous, a cyborg standing 7ft 1in tall who wields 4 lightsabors and is general of the CIS, Count Dooku a deseiveous little beast who's tougher than he looks, Jango Fett a Bad*censored*
bounty hunter who really outshines his over rated son (Jango killed 6 Jedi with his BARE hands, can Boba do that? I don't think so.. All Boba did was shoot once in a scene and got killed by a blind man). There are far more unique characters than those! Why do people over look them? They're seriously awesome.
With all theses characters comes diverse vehicles and soldiers. Haven't you noticed that the Clone Troopers have all different colored armor and deigns? All storm troopers looked the same. Or the CIS with their driods. They were different colors as well and had different designs like the menacing Droidika! Speaking of Clone Troopers let's touch on that a little bit.Clone Troopers vs Storm Troopers
This has been a long controversy, and just to put it simply the Clone Troopers far surpass their ancestors. Throughout the classics, let's face it, the Storm Troppers can't hit S**t! (Pardon moi francais!) But it's true. Not to mention their supposedly "Laser proof armor" didn't do anything to protect them. They got killed and mauled by the Ewoks sticks and stones....... Seriously? Sticks and stones kill these soldiers of the All mighty Empire? BAH!
Where as the Clone Troopers got missions done, were superbly skilled, and fought their guts out! They could actually kill! The 501st legion of the Galactic Republic wiped out an ENTIRE Jedi Order!! The Storm Troopers couldn't even kill a small Teddy Bear! Storm troopers are fierce? Yeah Right...More about the Clone Wars
The prequels have just been so BEATEN and punished by Star Wars fans and even Disney who refuses to expand upon them or even TOUCH them. This has always got me so furious! Come on, just because "The Prequels were a failure" doesn't mean it doesn't have a fan base! I just love everything about the Clone Wars. The CIS vs the Republic, General Grievous, The epic Battle Over Coruscant. EVERYTHING! The battles in the Clone Wars were so MUCH MUCH more realistic and intense. People claim the Galactic Era had the best battles..... Umm no. In the original trilogy the battles only took place on 4 PLANETS. Just 4. Yavin 4, Tatooine, Hoth, and Bespin. The Galactic Civil War took place on those. Where as in the Clone Wars, it was GALAXY WIDE! I'm talking about Geonosis, Rhenvar, Kamino, Coroscant, Polis Massa, Kashyyyk, Naboo, Tatooine, Mustafar, Mygeeto, on and on and on. Look at all of those different worlds!
People who didn't pay attention to the Clone Wars likely claim that the Empire made the Death Star. WELL the didn't. In Episode II the CIS actually came up with the DESIGN and the concept of the Death Star! Yep that's right, NOT the Empire.
Furthermore, the Clone Wars era features a whole lot more content than the Galactic. Like I have been listing they have more unique armies, unites, vehicles, planets, etc. I could just go ON AND ON AND ON AND ON!
I'm just going to make this more brief and post more on this later! Cuz, I'm tired of typing. I'll talk about Star Wars games next!
Thus I will end it with, the CLONE WARS ARE JUST PLAIN AWESOME! LOL
