And Lucasarts canceled the sequel, where we were going to help carry out Order 66 as the introduction, and then flash fowards to the original trilogy timeline, and play as the remaining Commandos who were members of Vader's Fist, fighting rebels, uncovering the fate of Sev, and potentially switching sides to help stand against the Empire.

I can only assume that George Lucas is allergic to success, money, and nice things at this point, like a fat kid that ate too many cookies and is now diabetic.

Shortly after the Clone Wars and the execution of Order 66, the first generation clone troopers were now too elderly to fight. Within a few years, all clones would be dead. In response, the Empire ended their contract with the Kaminoans and turned to a rival company on Centax II, which could grown combat-ready clones in a year. These clones primarily made up the 501st legion at the time of Episode 3, and were the decisive factor in winning the battle for Coruscant.

Fast forward roughly 19 years. 95% of all clones are dead and gone, the only ones being used anymore are pilots, and commandos. So where do the Storm Troopers come from? Conscription. Ordinary citizens of the Empire who were press-ganged into military service, given bare-bones military training, then handed a gun and told "go shoot that teenage kid that never hurt anybody." Not only were they ****** shots due to lack of formal training, but neither could they bring themselves to shoot civilians, as they once were themselves.

Hence also why we have storm troopers of differing heights in Episode 4-6.

TL;DR, Storm Troopers are barely trained slaves with too much humanity.

Or it could be They were clones of clones of clones. By the time of A New Hope, the latest batch was mildly retarded
User avatar #26 to #20 - ilovetocuddle (07/26/2013) [-]
I heard it also that the jango clones were to smart, and a few groups of them split off and betrayed the empire after the fall and rebelled. Fearing a full blown rebellion in the distant future, got regular people and second rate clones to prevent this.
#34 to #26 - eiggim (07/26/2013) [-]
I don't know if you ever played Battlefront 2, but one of the missions was on Kamino.
You, being an original trooper from Geonosis, had to kill a bunch of new clones as they had been built to destroy the empire. Not saying that is cannon in the story, but it could have happened. I only ever saw the films and played a few games, so I don't have that much knowledge.
User avatar #66 to #34 - Ulmer (07/26/2013) [-]
That actually is canon to the universe, the Empire invaded Kamino.

Impossible, unfortunately.

Hm...perhaps Vader valued his personal army so much that he just recloned them and programmed them to follow his orders alone?
User avatar #115 to #20 - creepingorion (07/26/2013) [-]
I actually saw this one thing that said the reason they couldn't shoot for **** was because the Stormtroopers blasters had ****** crystals or something. Thus, science.
User avatar #123 to #20 - finni (07/27/2013) [-]
The production of clones stopped after the Kamino rebellion didn't it? You know, when the Kaminos tried to rebel against the empire and used clones against them on Kamino and after that the Emperor ordered the Empire to stop production of clones and start with ordinary citiznes instead, but the 501st remained as clones and were renamed to "Vader's first"
User avatar #174 to #123 - tkfourtwoone ONLINE (07/27/2013) [-]
Vader's "Fist", not "First"
User avatar #184 to #174 - finni (07/27/2013) [-]

Maybe, but it's weird to change it like that after thinking it's Vader's first after so many years

Read 'Death Star', gives an interesting perspective on why the Stormtroopers ran down the wrong hall while chasing Han.
#157 to #20 - hellstar (07/27/2013) [-]
And then there's the original reason:

George Lucas royally ****** the prequels up. So badly they needed to create a whole new back story for everything.
#47 to #20 - grohl (07/26/2013) [-]
actually by the end of the clone wars first gen clones would only have been matured for roughly 5 years (the Clone Wars only lasted for 3, and i doubt they matured immediately before the outbreak of war) and were nowhere near retiring. I know what you might think: "accelerated aging" but actually only their growth and maturing is accelerated. Clones did begin being phased out after the Clone rebellion on Kamino with clones from other donors and eventually enlisted ranks, but certain groups (eventually only the 501st) were Fett clones only. By the events of New Hope the Fett Clones would have been in service for about 25 years (pretty much 45 years old, assuming maturity is equal to 50 non-accelerated years) and, only then be near retirement. The Famous Clone Narrator from Battlefront II, for example, only retired after the Battle of Hoth, almost 30 years after the battle of Geonosis. While I agree, after the first generation of clones, the Kaminoans did begin rushing the clones, to their own detest, and by the fall of the Republic the troops being produced were of a far lesser skill level, even the Fett clones. I would also like to point out how much the Fett clones hated the non-fett clones and enlisted troops with a fiery passion. After the Kaminoan rebellion, they may have ended their contract with the Kaminoans, but as we all know, the empire had a tendency to enslave those who did them wrong or had use to them (cough-wookies-cough), so they pretty much anally raped Kamino and forced them to produce troops along with other contractors
TL;DR: while you got it right in certain palces, you did make a few errors

The rebellion would of been crushed by Fett clones. If it wasn't for the Kaminoans who made those troops to fight the empire then Palpatine wouldn't of stopped using them.
User avatar #95 to #79 - tikledpikle (07/26/2013) [-]
i may need to brush up on my 501st history, but the rebellion was Fett clones vs Fett clones on Kamino. The rebel clones were sympathizers towards the Rebellion Fleet, and were eradicated by the 501st. It was decided by the emperor to use others DNA instead of just one donor, because the genetic make up would become weak and turn against him. like i said, i may need to touch up on the history a bit.
User avatar #65 to #47 - Ulmer (07/26/2013) [-]
I personally read the Republic Commando book series among others, and when I said first gen clones I meant literally the first generation the Kaminoans ever cloned. Should have specified, my apologies.
User avatar #107 to #20 - nikster (07/26/2013) [-]
I like to believe that the reason the stormtroopers were terrible on the death star, was because those troopers were reserve. Think about it, would the empire put their best of the best on their strongest fortress? The troops with experience were probably out on the fields, putting down the goddamn rebellion. Those on the Death star were the soldiers who were either a) just recruited, or b) only good enough for guard duty. When the Empire decided to use their seasoned troops, like in the battle on hoth, they were amazing. The reason why we (er....the empire) lost on Endor, was because of the emperors extreme underestimate of the rebels. He did not expect luke and Darth vader to kill him. He believed that he could control the minds and bodies of all troopers, using his power to make them fight the way he wanted. He was so confident in his abilities, that he put the same type of conscript troopers on the moon. The thrawn trilogy talks a lot about the powers the emperor had on his troops. Once he died, his troops lost their edge. They were, once again, just poorly trained conscripts. This lead to a massive rout, where the ewoks won the advantage. WHOOOO STARWARS

The Trade Federation was just super cheap. Cheap droids = cheap programming.
That actually (partially) explains why the stormtroopers were such bad shots as well.

Adeptus Mechanicus and also, that's for Space Marines, the Imperial Guard don't have any Codex, unless you count the Codex Astartes, which applies to EVERYONE.

I really hate the Warhammer 40K universe in general. Who thought that absolute terror and despair was the thing to base a universe on? Yet alone make a universe that can't be improved or in any way can see progress storywise?
User avatar #32 to #30 - crazylance (07/26/2013) [-]
*shrug* The entire universe fell into total war because of the God Emperor of Mankind, if I'm not mistaken, it's the Horus Heresy that caused **** to go down the drain or it could be the loss of all the Chapter House Matriarchs. I'm not well versed in W40K history.
User avatar #33 to #32 - thewisedane (07/26/2013) [-]
The universe were ****** and grimdark from the start, but it got worse after the Horus Heresy.

I have nothing against total war, and I have nothing against a dark universe, but why can't there be SOME redeeming characteristics for this universe? Everything is just baseline ****** up!
User avatar #154 to #33 - whycanticaps (07/27/2013) [-]
there is some happy endings, usually small miracles thanks to the blessing of the Emprah
User avatar #188 to #154 - thewisedane (07/27/2013) [-]
No, there is not. Everything remotely possitive will always be drowned in something negative of extreme proportions, so no, I don't see how these small happy parts of the universe can redeem the rest of grimdarkness.
User avatar #35 to #33 - crazylance (07/26/2013) [-]
Because sometimes, such a universe has to exist, think that if such a universe exists, there is a universe which is exactly the opposite to W40K
User avatar #36 to #35 - thewisedane (07/26/2013) [-]
Yes, the Brighthammer 40K universe. Problem is that it is so much the opposite that it is more of a parody.

I just want a likeable universe.
User avatar #37 to #36 - crazylance (07/26/2013) [-]
You know so much about 40K, yet you hate it so much at the same time.
User avatar #38 to #37 - thewisedane (07/26/2013) [-]
Yes. Is it wrong to know your enemy?
User avatar #39 to #38 - crazylance (07/26/2013) [-]
Nope, just surprised that you're among the rare ones that learn what they hate and find the reasons they hate it for.
User avatar #40 to #39 - thewisedane (07/26/2013) [-]
I had to. If I didn't, I couldn't choose a race of my liking, could I?

I also plot to make a fanbrewed version of the Warhammer 40K universe, that is less grimdark, while still feeling like Warhammer 40K (retaining reasons to wage war, no wipeouts of races, etc.)

Gonna be glorious. The Imperium shall fall.

Check the thread above yours, it rambles on about how the storm troopers are just unwilling conscripts who don't want to fight the rebels all that much.

I don't care what anyone says (unless they're agreeing with me of course) Stormtroopers are my favorite characters in Star Wars. They're the roughest, toughest, bunch of bastards that you could ever imagine. They spend their entire lives living for the sake of their cause and dying to see it out to the end.
They march into hell knowing their lingering fate and laugh when it comes. You don't **** with the men who've already accepted their death but will never accept giving it up with anything less than their all.

what you just described made Storm Troopers go from sounding like mindless drones in clunky cheep suits to immortal warriors that purge anything that so much as looks in their general direction.

But for me I really liked the Clone Troopers, even though everyone hates anything that has to do with the prequels
