This is easily explainable, after order 66 with the purge of the jedi clones were mass produced to an even greater extent using lesser genetic material and were grown at even faster rates making for a much more sub-standard unit. These clones not only had less potential but less training do in a memory flash manner also sub-par. This was done for two main resons to lower costs of the empire to spend more on say, palpatine's palace on naboo and to have a much larger army to better maintain control over a galactic empire. Take the 501st vader's personal unit their made up of orginal clones which is why they get their **** done like taking leia's ship with minimal losses or taking down rogues squadron or hoth.

The Clone soldiers were clones of what was arguably the greatest bounty hunter in star wars history, who slaughtered Jedi with his bare hands when he was a teenager. Stormtroopers were random schmucks pull off the streets and given a gun.

Just throwing this in here, but I really loved the idea that they took inspiration of the clones' armor from the Mandalorian design. Well, duh, Jango Fett was Mandalorian, obviously, but still, it's a nice deviation.

Don't like the looks of the Phase II armor that much, though (the one from the content, it's a half-way form between Phase I and the Stormtrooper armor; besides the changes in the helmet, you also see more armor plates being used for Phase II armor than for bigger and fewer ones found on Phase I)

Okay there are 3 people that were storm troopers
1) humans that joined up
2) clones from the republic
3) clones that palpatine had order to be made at a rushed rate at a different location

#3 clones were told they were raised on Kamino but they were grown on another planet where it was dry and never rained, this is seen in the republic commando series in the book Order 66 when the commandos were talking to regular troops and they discussed their "childhood"

Just doing this from memory, so the details might be a bit off, but there are several reasons for this.

The original close troopers were all an exact copy of Jango Fett, with their training supervised by Jango Fett. The cloning was done by the planet Kamino, who had technology for it far ahead of anyone else. After the clone wars, a conflict with Kamino using Jango Fett clones on both sides made the empire wary of having every soldier be the same individual, so they started cloning many different recruits without the benefit of Kamino's technology or Jango Fett's training.

So they don't have the same quality of genetic stock, training, or durability that the original clones do; save Vader's 501st battalion who are still purely Jango Fett clones with the best training possible.

That being said, star wars is full of ******** retroactive explanations of things that were originally put in just because they were cool. This is likely one of those cases.

It's because Anakin was never a good leader to his troopers, because he never was a father to Luke.

Stormtroopers are regular people. The Clones were cloned from Jango Fett, a highly trained killer.
User avatar #177 - formidableguy (11/16/2013) [-]
Clones from the clone wars were taken from the template of Jango Fett, incredibly skilled their training process was designed by him to get the best results, of a high quality army.

Storm troopers are taken from several templates of mediocre soldiers of fortune, after the clone rebellion on Kamino the Emperor realised the problem of one highly trained mass produced soldier, if one comes to a conclusion the high probability is that the rest will arrive at the same conclusion, when the newer, less indoctrinated troops heard of order 66 they revolted, and almost destroyed the cloning facility, meaning the Emperor would lose his ability to mass produce an army and make clone shells that he could in habit if he were to die.

Also Storm troopers were also supplemented with non clones, they acted as the local police force on the Imperial controlled planet, creating an occupation force from the same people that lived there, essentially a self occupying force, they kept each other in line,

Because the clones were factory-made perfect soldiers with impeccable aim and battle tactics. The cloning factories were like the 1st place the rebellion destroyed, so your standard stormtrooper is just a random drafted conscript from a random planet. Besides, the good security guards were at places that would actually see action, not the Death Star. Who in the universe would actually be dumb enough to go inside the Death Star and launch an assault on a space station the size of a small moon?

Storm troopers: Hired/conscripted.
Clone troopers: Made from badass.

Easy, clone troopers(CT) were trained by the Mandalorian, known to start a war with the Old Republic just to goad the Jedi into fighting them. (And, this is just an RPG mechanic, but in KOTOR 2, the character Mandalore(Mandalorian Chief) has a character trait named, Mandalorian Mind or something like that, it gave the character uber resistance against Sith and Jedi mind power.)
Stormtrooper(ST), has two version, i; Mass cloning, these ones were not trained by Mandalorian merc, just ordinary soldiers training another soldiers. ii; Mass recruiting; basically ordinary citizen of the Empire become soldiers. Like i), they were trained by not the best of the business.

clone troopers were specially breed to kill
storm troopers were basically volunteers

the highly skilled (clone trooper), were just that clones of jango fett, one of the best bounty hunters in the galaxy....
the other (storm trooper) is the equivalent of an enlistedmen , trained to be sure, but not to the likes of clone troopers

lets not forget the fact that against most "average" folks the storm troopers went up against wouldnt stand a chance, but what you see in the movies are then going up against are main characters (PCs) so their skill lvls just dont match

In the EU it explains that the original clone troopers were trained in 10 years (also explained in Episode II) and as time went on before the Clone Wars ended Palpatine started to introduce Clones created in 1 year.
This is why they are horrible shots, because they had less time to become expert shots like the original clone troopers.

After the clone wars military service became an option for imperial citizens, forcing the quality of troops to decline (i guess).

Because the Clone Troopers were highly skilled warriors that spent all of their live's raining for combat whereas Storm Troopers we recruited and had far less training than the Clone Troopers.

cloning obviously causes mental retardation.
