You're like me.
And because of that, I must now destroy you.
It's really a downer to know that in probably as little time as a year, Anakin will go from rescuing people to charbroiling younglings on his lightsaber. It's a downer to know that he'll probably kill "Snips". It's a downer to know that, despite all she's done to help them, Aayla's clonetroopers will still mercilessly, and without hesitation shoot her in the back until she's dead. And then continue shooting her.
It's distressing that they want kids to see these fuckers as heroes. I remember playing Battlefronts 2, and it features the 501st throughout the Clone Wars. Towards the end of the game, they transition from Clonetroopers to Stormtroopers, and then, your missions start revolving around murdering populations of planets and abhorrent shit.
I'm sitting there like, "Man, this fucking sucks shit." It's gone from Star Wars to Star War-Crimes. Playing the bad guys has an appeal, I guess. But when the bad guys are being portrayed as heroes, then there's something wrong.
Missed this part of the thread before.
My son just turned 4 at the weekend he got this helmet as a present.
It's size makes it look pretty comical on him because he's so small but I look pretty good in it.
Regarding your point, he likes the jedi but for him the Clones are the Heroes of the series.
While playing with him with his toys he even wanted to recreate the executions of the Jedi at one point.
It's a little worring but as far as I can gather from him he seems treat it like they are good guys who get turned bad by the Emperor just like Anikan.
