Yes, it is quite interesting.
Chapter 8 - The Separatist War Machine
The Separatists at War
But while popular accounts of the Clone Wars focused on the Separatists' legions of battle droid and corporate flotillas, the Confederacy relied heavily on the armies and defense fleets of sectors and individual star systems such as Umbara, Thustra, and Persavi that followed the lead of Antar, Ando, and Sy Myrth in breaking with the Republic. Many of the battles of the Clone Wars were fought between armies of organics, with nary a battle droid or clone trooper in sight. In some divided sectors, battles were fought by soldiers on both sides wearing identical uniforms and opposing fleets were made up of the same classes of warships and starfighters, with only new insignia and hastily applied coats of paint indicating the change of allegiance.
I would be really interesting to see some of these battles. Star Wars likes the black and white morality so seeing two forces fighting each other in the same uniform would be a really neat way to exhibit the different politics in the war. It would really bring up the brother vs. brother component of the conflict and it would force the viewer to pick a side. I love stories where the battle lines are less clear cut. In addition, seeing organic confederate soldiers would really humanize the cause. That's why I liked Umbara so much, because I like to imagine those militia-men were choosing to fight because of what they believe in. Personally, I like the Separatists more then the republic so it's nice to cheer for guys with emotion rather then droids.
The same thing happens with the galactic civil war. The imperial army was the largest branch of the military but those troopers don't look as good on a poster as a stromtrooper. As a result, it's easy to forget they exist. Seeing a non-regular GAR and Seperatists units would be awesome.
What did everyone think of To Catch a Jedi? I did not think it was anywhere close to last week's episode but it was still really good. This is shaping up to be my favorite arc and I'm anxious to see how it ends. I know Ahsoka will have a role next season but her relationship with the Jedi and the Republic will certainly be shattered.
Does anyone think Barris Offee is not behind the attack?
