"When the 501st was finally rotated out of Felucia, Aayla Secura made a point of seeing us off personally; Calling us the bravest soldiers she had ever seen...

It's a good thing we were wearing helmets. Because none of us could bear to look her in the eye."

Oh God

I hadn't even seen the films when I played that game, I never paid attention, I was just there for the gameplay.
But even I got this.

I understand it all now...

That part gets me in the gut every time.

What exactly is the context of that quote? I've never played Battlefront II.

Hopefully I've got this all correct.

It's when the 501st legion are fighting on Felucia and are stranded, until Aayla Secura comes in and defends them long enough for them to repair their transports. They felt bad because they knew she was going to die from Order 66, which is the extermination of all Jedi if deemed traitors, which is what Palpatine commanded shortly after that mission.

Did the clones always knew about order 66. Season 6 of Clonea Wars says they did not know about that ?

there's evidence that they were taught it then other sources say it was programmed...

That's something I don't like about the Clone Wars. They just take an axe to canon and rewrite as they see fit. Executive Order 66 is one of the many fine print orders instituted that each Clone must know. For instance, Order 65 is to depose the current Chancellor (in case someone besides Palpatine won that vote in Episode 1). They always knew about it but didn't believe the Jedi would ever turn against the Republic and go rogue (which is what Order 66 institutes)

Damn, the Kaminoans must have really not given a shit if they knowingly programmed in Order 66 and then not only didn't mention anything, but actually turned over the Clone army to the control of the Jedi. Money talks, I guess.

It was a safeguard. Think about it from their perspective for a sec. We've got these mystical super soldiers that can take out whole armies or have the potential to and now we'll give them some of the most trained soldiers in the world. It's assumed there were a bunch of failsafes like that just in case something happened. In this case, it was manipulation of the truth to make the clones believe the Jedi had gone mad with power.

Honestly I do agree with you in that particular case. I feel it would have been nice if all the Clones knew about Order 66 as a failsafe and nothing more and just left it as the chip in their heads was in order to keep them compliant (which is what I believe the case is) as opposed to being specifically in order to kill the Jedi... though honestly I think it was just an oversight on their part and I don't consider it canon.)

I do prefer pretty much everything else in the Clone Wars to the prequel movies. Jar Jar is less abrasive... if only a little bit. Ahsoka is a nice addition to the canon (though she is grating in the first season) and the stories about the clones actually delve into them and make them into fairly tragic characters. They are actually interesting in how they choose their own names and still have distinct personalities despite it all.

Anakin is also 1000 times better. He is everything that Anakin Skywalker should have been, although I just wish they had put more hints into his character that would explain why he would shit all over the Jedi Order. Sure, he loves Padame but I'd like to see him a little less content with how the Jedi did things so that I could actually believe him doing what he did.

And those last three episodes with Yoda, whilst they could have been better, did three really amazing things:
1) Made me far less worried about the Yoda movie, considering they managed to do Yoda some real justice in those episodes.
2) Made me actually like the medichlorians, explaining them as merely a medium as opposed to a source. Sort of, the simplest life-forms in the galaxy being the most powerful sort of thing. I can kinda dig that.
3) Make the Ghosts make sense! God damn that always bugged me, like how such proactive characters as the Jedi would simply roll over and let the Sith win. However following the presented logic it's the Jedi playing the waiting game, striking at the perfect time.

Given all that happened I am gagging for Rebels.

I understand what you're saying. I definitely came to love the Clone Wars as a series, it was just a few of the things that they do sometimes that make it annoying.   
   
If you like the way they portrayed the Clones, I'd recommend the Republic Commando book series written by Karen Travis. It's all about a squad of four Commando's, them meeting their Jedi commander, and about how they become more and more independent as friends and people instead of just jedi/clone all the way from Genonosis to Order 66.

"When her death came, I hope it was quick."


Seriously, that's the end of the quote, how did you miss it?
User avatar #220 to #70 - fishlung (03/11/2014) [-]
Heh.. The quote stuck in my mind.. I couldn't remember all of it. I looked it up and that wasn't in it...

Although I do remember hearing that from the 5 or so times I've played the campaign.

"It was said the 501st got the best of the war. We also got the worst. On Felucia the Seps dug their metal heels into the muck of that alien hell hole and dared the Republic to come in after them......so we did. Only to be met with month after month of flesh eating diseases, shrieking nocturnal predators, and other sights that haunt me to this day. Cut off, and for all we knew, abandoned by our superiors, our only hope was Aayla Secura, our Jedi commander. Without her iron will none of us would have made it off that planet with our sanity. Or our lives. When her death came I hope it was quick. She'd earned that much."
