OK gonna toss in my two cents worth here. Some of what I've read I agree with, some I don't...unfortunately not going to get into that as it would take an age-and-a-half and I'm doing this one-handed (no, not an amputantion or anything equally drastic, just tendonidis....little advice; try to avoid it, it sucks). So I'll just bring up the new thing I thought of while reading:
Jango is, if nothing else, a father who shows Boba the way to being the [add long stream of adjectives praising Boba's skills here] bounty hunter, by:
1- Being a prime example of what Not to do (i.e. kill two guards w/one rocket instead of two, when you have the chance to poison-dart a Jedi don't pass it up, shoot them when they drop their weapon then recover dropped weapon, approach all situations w/ a cool detachment instead of being cocky, don't stick around for the opera...er execution, take the bounty then get the hell outta dodge, Don't. trust. people...especially the ones who use you as bait. ---Interesting note; Remember how Boba reacts with anger by being used as a pawn by Mr. Spider -not gonna try and mutilate his name- and Xizor? He doesn't go emotional or ridiculous, but he does react w/anger...maybe some left-over resentment of being used as bait in the past?*---, wearing silver armor is like painting a target on your back...and it makes you look rather like a twit)
2- imparting basic hunting and flight skills
3- giving his son a cool name
Not saying I'd nominate him for father-of-the-year, or that I hate him...but all in all there has to be the flawed Jango for there to be the perfected** Boba.
There's my two cents, now for a question that's semi-off-topic:
Why did Jango dive for Mace's weapon instead of using the wire-thingi-magige (can't think of the name for it...damn that's gonna bother me the rest of the day>.<) like he did in his fight with Obi-Wan?
*I know they were published out of chronological order, I'm not asking about author-based-pyschology, but purely character-based
**perfected as in best-there-ever-was, not that he never makes mistakes
