Of the microseries, TCW has:
- Stopped the production of new toys based on it to prevent 'brand confusion'
- F**ked up the ARCS, turning them into basically mall cops
- Bumped it into non-canon
- Screwed up the underwater with PADME! Why the f**k is Padme fighting in a war? That's like if Obama picked up a gun and headed to the middle east.
Anyways, I hate the entire 'They are not in the film, so we can't do it'. They didn't have a problem with getting Vos in.
However, I wouldn't direct this rage at Filoni. If one looks around, you will notice that Lucas has taken control of CW. The first season, with no Lucas involvement, was great, with minor characters getting an episode, and generally creating characters (Echo) people cared about. The second season was average, but you could already see the Lucas takeover with the stupid politics (Senate Murders, anyone?) and the dumb ripoffs (The Zillo Beast). The third season is nearly all Lucas, with half being pointless politics and the rest focusing on Ani/Obi/Shoka/Padme. What happened to the minor characters getting featured? What happened to it not being the Skywalker story? Both those are out the window. These are classic Lucas mistakes - look at how much politics there were in the prequels, and how most characters weren't, well, characters. Lucas can only really handle 3-4 people, and that's not good in an anthology show.
So, in conclusion, TCW is being controlled by a madman, and that madman killed the hopes for the commandos. I just hope that what happened to the Mandos doesn't scare LA from making RepComm 2.
