Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Answer: I would say his death in Phantom Menace was more of a controversy. He was a fan favorite character from the movie, and his fight scene largely regarded as the best part of the movie. It was more he was brought back to please the Star Wars fans and few, if any, had problems with it.

Question: I have noticed more than one female character (Asajj Ventress and, later in the show, Ahsoka Tano) wearing pieces of cloth on their belts that hang between their legs. I have seen this on females in other shows/movies/games as well. Does it serve some purpose or is it simply decorative?

Answer: This is a compromise between flirty and modest showing skin on the side of the leg, while hiding the crotch/rear area. This style exists only in fiction because in real life, the cloth would get in the way and it would be easier to either wear shorts, remove the cloth, or both.

Question: Plo Koon always has some kind of covering/bandage on the middle finger of each hand. What is the reason behind it?

Answer: Plo Koon has the ability of a forbidden Force technique called Electric Judgment. To many Jedi, this seemed to be too close to the Force lightning used by Sith Lords. He therefore wears talons over his fingertips in order to boost his Force powers.

Ambush - S1-E1

Question: Why did the king think that Yoda didn't get a fair fight? He agreed to see if Yoda could fight the droids, so why did he think Ventress broke her word after she sent out a bunch of droids?

Answer: I guess that 1) the King assumed that Ventress' droids were meant to capture the Jedi, not kill him outright. When she yells at OOM-224 to shoot Yoda, she evidently failed that expectation. 2) Sending out a bunch of Droidekas after it is plain that Master Yoda has clearly won is not a sign of good sportsmanship, either.

Answer: While it obviously cannot be completely discounted, there is currently no evidence to suggest that this is anything other than coincidence.

The Hidden Enemy - S1-E16

Question: In Episode II, one of the Kaminoans said that the clones are designed to be obedient, so how could Slick betray the Jedi?

Answer: Nobody said to whom they were designed to be obedient.

Answer: Grievous is general of the Separatist army. Ventress technically has no rank, being Dooku's personal assassin/enforcer/aide. In terms of personal power within the Seperatist movement, both are probably about equal, but, in rank terms, the Seperatist forces would obey Grievous over Ventress.

Dooku Captured - S1-E11

Question: When Palpatine sees the hologram of the pirate leader with Dooku, he says that a hologram can be faked, but then he believes the pirate when he sees Dooku's lightsaber. If he thinks that the pirate could have faked the hologram of Dooku, wouldn't it also be reasonable to accuse him of faking the hologram of the lightsaber?

Answer: It is to note that Count Dooku's lightsabers have a very characteristic curve handle. If you wouldn't know what this particular item looked like, you would have a hard time faking it. The sight of Dooku's lightsaber, therefore, had to convince the Jedi about the veracity of the pirate's claims.

Question: Has Dooku ever officially made Asajj his apprentice? I know he is still Sidious' apprentice, but Sidious secretly trained Maul before he killed Plageous (according to the SW Wikipedia), so Dooku could secretly train Asajj. In "Ambush" he calls Asajj his apprentice when talking to the king of Toydaria, but then in "Cloak of Darkness", he tells Asajj that she has to prove she is worthy.

Answer: Dooku never accepted Ventress as his apprentice, as far as I know; he just kept her as his devoted personal assassin. In Phantom Menace, it is stated that there can be only two Sith at a time, to prevent a power struggle in the lower ranks. To accept Ventress as an apprentice, Dooku would have violated that rule.

Rookies - S1-E5

Other mistake: The battle droids - including the commando droids featured here - habitually have two broad fingers and a thumb. So how can a commando droid squeeze itself completely into clone trooper armor without its broad fingers tearing open the gloves, since it can't separate its fingers?

Obi-Wan: Very impressive. You just destroyed seventeen defenseless battle droids without suffering a scratch.
[Another battle droid falls apart.]
Anakin: Eighteen, actually.
