Spoilers aren't fun, they are evil.
And I would not consider someone DYING to be a minor part of a book! Death is a very big thing. I would most certainly rebuy the book.
Edited so as not to post twice in a row.
I have the game and would like to say that this "Shaak Ti" is Shaak Ti in name only. She doesn't look, act, or speak like the real Shaak Ti.
Yeah, I don't understand why they changed her look for the game. It's like they were trying to give her some kind of sex appeal for the game. And she was way too easy to take out when you fought her. The hardest one ot fight for me, so far, was the weird little guy with all the droids and the Doc Octopus type arms coming out of his back harness.
which kind of animation for the clone wars did you prefer?
i kinda liked the 2-D aspect of the old one
I definitely liked the first Clone Wars cartoon animation style a lot better, but I didn't mind this cartoon that much at all. I do like that they show more of the interaction with the Clones now, though. Makes them more personable and less nameless. You actually feel for them when they bleed and cheer with them when they win.
I did like how Yoda seemed to almost be having fun at the beginning, as if he was just messing with the droids. Reminded me a little of the "crazy" Yoda from the Empire Strikes Back.
While reading everyone's opinions on the new cartoon, I couldn't help but think of what a boardroom thread like this would have been like had the internet been around when I was a kid and the Star Wars: Droids and Star Wars: Ewoks cartoons were out. I wonder if people would have been so critical about them back then, or just happy to have something Star Wars on TV on Saturday mornings. I was just happy it was Star Wars, because that was definitely THE thing back in the day. Every kid had Star Wars toys in some shape or form. It's amazing how some things gets ingrained with people, not so much in the culture as a whole, but just within a certain generation of people. I wonder how different thing would be if Star Wars had come out in the 50's and was first part of my parents generation. Would I even like it as much as I do now? Just goes to show that it's not always the animation that pulls people in, but the story, whether its something serious (well, not comedy, anyway) like GI Joe, He-Man, or the Superfriends, or just plain wacky like Bugs Bunny, Animaniacs, or Freakazoid.
