Allright, since you've seen it, can you tell me four things?

Is General Grievous present?
Is Durge present? (Big, burly bounty hunter in armor? Might have been on a speeder bike with a lance?)
Are Plo Koon/Kit Fisto present?

Do any of the above characters have lines or some sort of importance?

Nope, No, Nada.
And to the last question, no.
:O
Also, Gunner is one of the children.
It's true.

Figures they'd just pull Asajj out of the trio :P

Did she have any lines/importance?

Then wait for the more adult orientated live action TV show.  I see no problem with trying to introduce new fans to the series.

But when you do it at the cost of alienating your current fan base then you have a problem.

The fanbase is alienating themselves.  Like I've said before, this is really no different from the Cartoon Network shorts, and nobody seemed to have much a problem with them.  I will admit that this really didn't need to be a movie, but it just seems to be suffering from the same problem as Indiana Jones 4, it's not really bad, people just want to hate it and find things to complain about in it.

Plo Koon and Fisto actually appear somewhat briefly in the opening sequence, back to back.  Like I said before though, it's already confirmed that there will be at least one episode of the actual show focusing on them.  And yeah, I was wondering if Grievous would appear as well, but it focuses mainly on Ventress as the main villian, which I think was the better choice.  So yes, she has some importance in the movie.   ;)

for the record, I would just like to say that I hate Asajj Ventress more than possibly any other SW character. Dunno why.

I hate Asajj the same way I hate Darth Sion and Darth Sidious; they're just too good not to poke fun at.

For example, I refuse to call them by their actual names; they'll allways be "cat woman", "roasty toasty peanut butter", and "emperor prune-face" to me.

what was wrong with Sion? Kreia was way worse... Nihilius was the best

Long story, but it started with that recording on the Harbinger.

*Girly scream*
*Standard glass-break sound*
"I've come for the Jedi..."

Something about it struck me as funny.

I also dislike Kriea, but "witch" just isn't as funny a name as "roasty toasty peanut butter".

Kreia/Darth Traya could have been a far better if they didn't make her such an obvious villian from the start it defeats the purpose of having her as a character who they show is puling the strings behind you as a party member you have to pretend to trust it ruined the immertion they should have just made her villianess the big reveal. Other than she worked as sort of a knight templer character.

Of course the blatent use of the main villian in your party was not KotOR 2's main problem.

grievous, plo koon, and fisto appeared i the intro but had no lines and only showed for a few seconds.


I thought it wasn't terrible, but it wasn't good. the lack of the flying space paragraphs and the crappy monologe that replaced them made it seem un-star-wars-like, and the plot sorta seemed simplified for a younger audience.

Anakin's apprentice didn't fit with the rest of the Star wars series (or at least from what i know) so it would have been better that in the end of the movie, Anakin can no longer teach her. it would have made the movie make a smoother transition to episode 3, seeing as she wasn't even mentioned in it. I didn't mind the fact that it was animated, but its hard to make a full star wars movie without actors and have it feel the same.

I have to admit i enjoyed the battle scenes, and I thought they did a good job with the clones, but it could have done better without the snappy one liners in the middle of combat and the nicknames that Ahsoka had for Anakin and vise versa(where did snips come from?!). I also couldn't figure out if it came before or after the animated series, i assumed after because Asajj had her red light sabersin the movie, but then there were even more things wrong with that!

Overall i would give it a 5/10 or 6/10  :-\

Having seen the various promotional materials for this movie, I must say that what I enjoy the most is the whimsical design of the characters. Their appearance is obviously based on the Eastern European (specifically Prague where they are very popular, even today) puppets. To adapt this style of portrayal to a science fiction story is a novel idea.
