Still open to suggestions

Not really 501st, but it's related to vader and the attack on the Kamino Cloning facilities.

According to the Force Unleashed II, Commander Cody of the 212th attack battalion was posted there after the empire took over the facility. In one of his journals he complains about how incompetent the new clones are when compared to the old ones.

Also semi related to kamino; Taun We, the kaminoan who watched over Boba Fett, lived out the clone wars and way beyond the galactic civil war. Eventually Boba Fett tracked her down and used her knowledge of the clones to slow down his terminal illness. for those who think Boba died in the Sarlacc, he escaped and continued to kick ass for a long time. He doesn't even have a date of death, since no writer killed him off

501st was actually the name of a group of fans who dressed as Troopers to all the sci-fi conventions. George loved it so much he used them in the stories.

**mrgoodlove rolled a random image posted in comment #876643 at Friendly ** so technically, any planet attacked by this group got fisted by Vader?

Seeing the words "brutal efficiency" when describing stormtroopers seems both strange and wrong.

A. Most stormtroopers were not clones. Regular guys pressed into service.

B. Most of the engagements with the storm troopers were situations where they had orders not to kill their targets because they intended to track them or capture them alive.

And then they suddenly started missing every shot they made.

Well technically, THEY weren't the ones missing. It was the shoddy new stormtroopers who missed. For example in Ep IV, the ones guarding the death star at the time were NOT 501st (according to Battlefront 2 anyway). While the ones that assaulted Hoth or the Tantive IV were 501st.

Seriously do Revan. He's one of the most powerful and consequential jedi to have ever graced the galaxy. Not to mention he's such a badass he almost won 3 Galactic wars by himself.
