Undeniable Fact About AOTC #27: It Set Things Up For Clone Wars

“Begun the clone war has,” Yoda intoned at the end of AOTC. With that came a slew of multimedia documenting those tumultuous years between Episodes II and III. There were novels like “Shatterpoint” (2003) and “Dark Rendezvous” (2004). There was the micro series that ran on Cartoon Network 2003-2005. There were comics like the Republic series. All of that culminated in creating The Clone Wars television series.

    That penultimate ending scene – of the clone troopers boarding the assault ships – really opened up the Star Wars setting. I’d compare it to Luke’s allusion to Tatooine being the place farthest from the bright center of the universe, and to Anakin’s exchange with Qui-Gon about the planets of distant star systems. The size and the scale of the Star Wars galaxy was glimpsed in that scene.

    Each one of those assault ships was carrying a sizeable Grand Army of the Republic unit to a distant battlefront. Just imagine how many there are, not necessarily in that one staging ground: 1.2 million units, so probably close to that number of planetary battles and deep space engagements going on at any given time.

    That was the scene, I’d argue, that inspired a wave of EU and TCW stories that is still ongoing.

    What I’d give for a damn good real-time tactics game set in the Clone Wars…
