Somehow I forgot to post a link to Adam’s essay from 4/18, Anatomy Of A Scene: Grievous Challenges Kenobi. In it he explains in great detail why the scene was set up the way it was (I never had any problems with it and in context of The Clone Wars, people shouldn’t have any problems with it at all).
First off, Kenobi is a Jedi trained to not let his emotions get the better of him. When he moves, he moves deliberately and without letting fear take him. Any Jedi worth his salt would do the same, as Grievous wears in his cloak proof of what happens when you don’t. And as for a non-Jedi character who would be scared pantsless? They’d be deer-in-headlights frozen for at least a moment before screaming to the hills.
And it reminds me of when Hayden was once asked to consult on the ROTS video game. He told the game designers that Anakin would never walk around all tense with a lightsaber in his hand because he’s always ready. Jedi are kinda like that, you know .
