Star Wars Rebels

Interesting turn of events, and quite frankly, I'm glad to see Filoni involved.

Perhaps an older Ahsoka Tano will appear in this series.

I personally hope they try to take a more series tone with the series, but some how the doubt of that eats away more than the Jar Jar Binks episodes of Clone Wars ever could. The Disney ownership is giving us new movies, the partnership with EA will give us new games; the next couple of years will determine whether or not we actually wanted any of it.

How many more saber clashes would make it fully-assed?
I'm starting to get the impression you're completely missing my point.

No, though I am perhaps a bit unfairly reducing your point to "want moar fite." There's decades of history there. We know it. I just don't see what else could've been thrown in there without belaboring the point.

Maul has killed two of the most important people in Obi-Wan's life. Obi-Wan humiliated Maul, cost him his status and horribly maimed him. Before Maul could seek out Kenobi again, the Empire rises and Obi-Wan is believed dead. Then he finds the holocron with Ezra, and you get the whole, "HE LIVES! HEEEE LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVESSSSSSSSSS!" bit. Revenge is all Maul has now. Spreading his pain, his suffering is the nature of his existence.

So, basic combined arms and air support tactics are considered a stroke of tactical genius in Star Wars? =P
Remember, putting wirecutters on a walker is considered universe-breaking. So...
And what's a Grand Admiral doing commanding a ground assault? While a government official commands naval operations? =P
Thrawn r s00per-d00pr war jeenyus! And, in fairness, I think Thrawn did have some ground stuff in Legends because... s00pr-d00pr and all. Remember, too, this had a political officer leading starship combat and ground actions.

Actually having Star Wars make sense militarily is the one thing more difficult than having it make sense scientifically. So of course I try to do both

Actually, I don't think he did, beyond "keep troops here" and "don't mess with this". I don't think he was ever directly involved in any of the (actually few) land battles in the trilogy, and the closest he got in Outbound flight was commanding a boarding party.

Give Zahn a little more time: Thrawn will be destroying armies with his mind. Hmm, in a battle between Thrawn and Mara Jade, written by Zahn, who would win? >_>

Thrawn. That basically happened in the trilogy, didn't it?

He duped her into thinking she outsmarted and evaded him. <_<

Ah, but neither of them had died yet at that point, and therefore neither had become Mary Sues yet. I'm talking about the Mara Jade who destroys starships with pistols and the Thrawn who defeats Jedi with staring contests.

Actually Rebels isn't as bas as it was in the first season now that it's getting deeper and more serious.

What I love the most is the small details like how officers entering combat zones actually wear body armour to protect themselves. Gives it a nice touch of realism. But then Star Destroyers that don't fire their weapons appear... =P

No, it's Zahn's--he seems to apotheosize any of his characters who die, whether by his own hand (Thrawn) or especially not (Mara Jade). Having read all of Zahn's Star Wars books pre-Allegiance and a smattering of his non-Star Wars books, I have to conclude that Zahn is a writer who sometimes has good ideas and occasionally good characters, but who lacks the chops to tie them together--and his obsession with overly complicated plots and excessively intelligent characters does him no favors. Also his prose is pretty middling.

ETA: But yes, there are elements of the fanbase who would not be content with Mara Jade or especially Thrawn being anything less than godlike.

I think Thrawn did have some ground stuff in Legends because...
Yes he did. His specialty was naval combat, but he was knowledgeable in ground warfare as well. But he did leave those affairs to people like General Covell.

Outbound Flight showed him leading a boarding party (not like Vader though ), but it was established before that novel that he basically went all predator on a group of Imperial soldiers, humiliating that commanding officer.

Oh, tantrums are fine. But we're discussing competency. I mean, they made five movies plus an origin story about a villain that would throw tantrums.
