    Actually, I misread your post and thought you meant the last battle in RoS. Apologies, that's totally my bad. While I'd argue that TFA absolutely was not leading to TLJ (or anywhere, really) I also wouldn't call its ending an ass-pull.

    FWIW, I consider the fight inside the arena to be the actual last battle of AotC. Massive battles in Star Wars are mostly backdrops. Whether we're looking at Ackbar's fleet in RotJ, the Gungans in TPM, etc., the real action is usually somewhere else and the larger battle is there to give it a larger sense of scale. The masses of clone troops are no different. They just come in a little late as a "here comes the cavalry" moment.

    Does anyone else find it amusing and fitting that the final season of Clone Wars is airing on Revenge of the Sith's 15th anniversary year since the season's time frame takes place during Order 66 later on?

You will therefore be taken to the Dune Sea, and cast into the pit of Carkoon, the nesting place of the all-powerful Sarlaac. In his belly you will find a new definition of pain and suffering as you are slowly digested over a thousand years."

    One of my favorite things about the fight is that it isn't red vs blue, which makes it harder to just go "yay Obi-Wan" and label Anakin as the villain. There are moments where you can't tell which of them is which because the lightsaber is the same and you're just going "wait, we really have fallen far. What the HELL happened?" It's probably one of the grayest moments in the movies. Anakin isn't too far gone until he actually screams "I HATE YOU!" When the fight starts he isn't red yet.

    And we're spoiled by all the EU content but unless you want to count Grievous, this really was the "first" blue on blue fight and it was kind of a big deal. I think him switching to red would have been cheesy and I'm glad Lucas didn't do it.

    Regarding the Legends comic collections, which ones are better? The Omnibus’ or the Epic Collections?

    I dunno about the Epic Collections, but the Omnibuses were usually good.

    I can't believe this hasn't seemed to be brought up here but has anyone read Trevorrow's Duel of the Fates draft that's floating around?

    It's... Interesting. In some ways better than what we got and in some ways worse, but it's more in line with 7 and 8 as far as being pointless-but-coherent as opposed to TRoS's... Hideous Frankenstein mish mash slouching around under the guise of a film

    There has been extensive discussion about it here up until about a week or so ago.

    Yes I know - that's what I'm talking about. Check further back in this thread and the TROS one - people talked at length about the script leak. I know we did because my two cents on it was that I thought it sounded just as bad, but just in a different way. Some people thought it sounded better. Some people posted videos about it. It's all here... somewhere.

    Oh, I agree. I just simply want to share a very funny video that parodies TRoS.

    Also, there is another video that is worth checking out:
