I think his giving KT a free hand with Boba and the Mando influence in the Clones is a sign he's finally realizing how much of a fan base he's been ignoring in the Fett/Mando following.
I've never said he wasn't smart...I'd think he's a friggin genius considering all he can be credited with coming up with and his vision. I think he LOST a lot of it between the original and the new trilogies, but never the less he's still one of the all time movie making Greats and yes, he deserves all our thanks for giving us the passtime we love so much.
All that being said, I feel he Has at times shown a dissreguard for us *the Fett/Mando fans out there* and a general "I'll do whatever I flippin please with SW," which of course is perfectly within his right. But those are things he's done with the films; he's STILL given authors and game creators the freedom to explore and expand on the Mando universe.
Whether or not he's trying to minimize Boba, I'm not sure; where I am I've never seen so many Boba toys and figures before, though I'll be watching to see if that lasts with the new flow of Clone Wars cartoon figures.
