Everything Wrong with the BATTLE OF GEONOSIS

  • Added:  4 days ago
  • Everything Wrong with the Battle of Geonosis. Part 5 of our Star Wars Tactics series this time we'll be looking at the first battle of the clone wars on geonosis. The newly created Clone Army are led into battle by inexperienced Jedi General against the newly discovered Separatist Droid Army. It's an unnecessary blood bath.

    So in other works, Lucas proved that all the liberals who said that after 9/11 the U.S. should have just send the FBI in an arrested OBL were wrong. Or for that matter Carter's attempt to Rescue the Hostages in Iran, with a small commando force rather then a sizeable military action.

    Why wasting ground troops if you can bombard the surface from orbit? The droid army does not seem to have a powerfull shield system like the Gungans in Episode I.

    @Generation Tech:
    From a tactical perspective this is all right what you say, but while watching this an idea came up in my mind.
    Maybe the Jedi's incompetence of leading and not using both strategic and tactial superiority and advantages was part of the "great" plan, foiled by the chancellor (aka Darth Sidious). It would at least explain Order 66 without inhibitor chips. And somehow shows the egoism, self-assirance and ignorance of the Jedi, as mentioned by Yoda in the same movie!
    The Jedi were, as mentioned, trained for 1v1 combat, not as generals or leaders of great units (1000 + soldiers etc.). At this point (if we don't follow the story line) the clone commanders should have stepped in as they were trained and drilled for leading units and obey this command structure, better knew of tactical and strategic advantages (air supremacy etc.) and were clones too, so understood what it meant for their subordinates.
    It would have been possible to achieve a victory with either a low casualty number or greater victory than in the movie all along.
    Jedi are a bit reckless and this episode shows this quite good.

  • Raptor302
    Raptor302 15 hours ago

    The (much) bigger mistake made by the Jedi was accepting, without question, a gift-wrapped army that was conceived and paid for ten years before they needed it.

    A few questions were raised when Obi-wan discovers it, but those questions were quickly abandoned. This is in spite of the fact that the person who supposedly placed the order for the army was dead before the order was made, and nobody bothered to follow the money trail for who financed the project. The Jedi practically let themselves get wiped out by Order 66 by embracing this Trojan horse.

    one thing I did agree with is that the Jedi Didn't go in with out a plan im pretty sure they knew that the senate was going to inact the clones I think the Jedi were either sent as a distraction while Yoda was sent to get the clones and in the clone wars comics and cartoon both the one in 2003 and the latest one you see that Jedi although peace keepers have had some type of military and strategic lessons or study's of them and one point is the clone wars movie they use stealth to sneak passed and destroy the enemy shield generator and also the second battle if genosus (fucked the word up) was that one they would launch and establish a beach head which was obi wans team animal would attack from the east and take care of the forces their and destroy the blockade so future tanks could go and then ki add would attack the west and destroy anti air canons or clear the caves for of geinossain forces in their then converge on obi wan at least this time the attack used more military stratigcs

    There was a lot done wrong throughout the Clone Wars, many points as to which you highlighted, but at the same time many of these situations were of no fault of the Jedi. The problem was that prior to the Old Republic, the Jedi hadn't been in war in over 1000 years so they became very complacent in their position and instead of practicing battle drills and focusing on training to fight, they trained on deepening their connection to the force, and seeking out the Sith. The average life span of any Empire is around 200 years, so needless to say, the Jedi more than wore out their welcome and within their complacency, they lost it all because of their arrogance and blindness. SImilar to the reason why most Empire's fell in real life.

    This is definitely a conversation that could be discussed and debated all day long. One thing is for certain, there are wrong's and right's to both sides of the coin within this timespan of the Star Wars universe.

    The Jedi were not warriors and were in a rush. They didn't plan anything. I think the clones got there late simply because Kamino is so far from Coruscant, where Yoda was coming from to visit. Actually, I think the clones should have taken even more time to get there.

    I know Ill get a lot of hate for this but I find many of the Jedi during Obi Wan's time are weak.. with a few exceptions. The Jedi during the Old Republic could have led the clone army easier. Also they were not afraid to fight if the situation called for it.

    The Republic Commando books state that roughly half of all of the Commandos produced on Kamino were killed on Geonosis, mostly due to the Jedi being inexperienced in leading soldiers and deploying the Commandos as infantry.

    South Africa sends Peacekeepers to wartorn countries to extract hostages. I know Hollywood loves Navy Seals and Tier 1 Delta groups but South African Peace Keepers are pretty badass they're modeled off SAS but mostly work as peacekeepers providing security detail to aid workers in the most dangerous and remote parts of Africa. If you've never heard of them.. that's the point.

    I also do not entirely agree with the idea that Jedi were bad at leading an army. For starters, they didn't even know about the army coming to Geonosis until it was literally above their heads. On top of that the armies were already landed and deployed in the formations that we see in the movie. There probably weren't too many options available. This can be said for many of the battles we see in fact. Sometimes there arent too many options like on Umbara, there was no place to land heavy tanks or set up bases and the entire planet was hostile.

    Mace even said, "If I had slain Dooku, if I had allowed Jango slay me down on Genosis, the war might of ended that day. I don't think that shatter-point exist anymore. Now, with or without Dooku, the war would go on." Yeah Dooku may have been the leader, but he was just another cog in the system. What happened after Dooku died? General Grievous assumed leadership. When he died, another took his place. That shows you the CIS was a unstoppable war machine, and Dooku got them to that point. After that, the Jedi couldn't just kill him off because there were those who showed pleased emotions towards him. If he was stabbed by a jedi, it would of made half the Galaxy morn over his death.

    The Republic and the Jedi needed the whole Galaxy to take their side of the coin, otherwise it would made them look like murders. And they can't force it, because they'll be no better than the Empire itself years later.

  • Christopher Mallon

    It's been a looong time since I read the novelization so I may be wrong here but the impression I always had was that the strike team under Mace Windu did not know that the clones were coming. This movie is about the worst for weird time warps anyway so I guess it fits.

    That said it was still a dumb idea... literally all they had to do differently was have like 6 more Jedi up on the balcony and they would have won.

    Also the clone trooper incompetence when chasing Dooku - which you didn't bring up in your video - I remember thinking at the time it had to be intentional, the clones knew not to attack him - but that was never followed up on and doesn't seem to fit anymore after Episode 3.

    most clones were hesitant when order 66 came about it. most jedi were really outstanding leaders such as ki adi mundi, Shakti, luminara , kit fisto and even plo koon as well as many others. after the battle they were all taught to lead in the order, many jedi leaders have grown srong bonds with their clones. before the chip idea it was hard for so many clones.

  • Björn Mätal
    Björn Mätal 2 days ago

    Oh come on. I Come here expecting a review of tactics, and I get the usual "clone lives matter" bullshit?

    The new Disney "clones ain't bad, it's 'cus the chips!!!44!4!"
    explanation destroys one of the most interesting concept of Star Wars,
    which is:
    Republic/clones=/=good,
    Sith/CIS/Empire=/=evil.

    Here's the thing. Clones were bred and trained since birth to obey and kill. No friends, no feelings, just brainwashing.
    Until their first battle, the average clone foot soldier was exactly like all the others, they had the same personality for they had the exact same DNA AND same experiences also.
    From then on, they can be lumped up to groups based on where they fought, which allows for small divergence. Emphasis on 'small'.

    They do not have to like or dislike the Jedi, in fact, they were not allowed to have such emotions and preferences.
    All they had to do is to obey orders, that of the Jedi, until they get a different order,
    which was to kill them. Palpatine outranked all the Jedi so the clones obeyed him and killed the Jedi. Not because they hated them, but because they spent the first 9 years of their lives getting the "OBEY ORDERS" thing hammered into their cloned skulls.
    They weren't "human", they were drones, following orders to the letter.

    Only exceptions being clone commanders/commandos and such, whom required to have a shed of personality and were trained by Jedi or mercenaries, instead of going through the same training program 99% of the clones do. They had a shed of free will and so the small chance to disregard such orders because they feel like it, but still it was miniscule compared to the brainwashing they all went through during the early stages of their development.

    You, as well as Disney, underestimate the psychological impact of such a training process. It was like the perfect communism for them. From the moment they were "born", they were all equal in every single possible way.

    Totally agree, lets just jump into the middle, it was more for effects of who made it, blundered the story for views. All those loses, you had an army none knew about, use their air support and do a quick extraction then mount an offensive. Jedi could have been used to take out key points to make the extraction more likely to succeed. It's like who you trying to impress? Oh that's why the "fans" none of this shit would have happened if the producers didn't worry about deuce bag Americans and the money they spend at the movies.
