I just have a hard time accepting the notion that most old school fans of Boba have that he's a totally cold and heartless bounty hunter who lives for nothing but his next big pay check. It's commonly said that he lives by a code; why can't that code be that of a Mandalorian Warrior?
Being a fan of the Mando'ade just as much as I am a fan of Boba, I *unlike many* loved the idea of Jango, the last true leader of the True Mandalorians being his father *didn't love that Boba turned out to be a clone so much, but the idea didn't kill me.*
It's my opinion that Boba saw himself as the last REAL Mandalorian in the galaxy. Unable to become the Mandalore of a true force of Mandalorian Warriors *until later* he leads the life of a bounty hunter, reaping the Honor of catching the most dangerous or most elusive pray in the galaxy; the credits are just what pays the bills.
Havn't really read much EU about him, so maybe I'm all wrong, but that's how i like to see him
"You set a code to live by. I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted...I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do these things to other men, and I require the same from them."
