Star Wars: The Clone Wars - "Lethal Trackdown"

Spoiler Level: Medium

So... who's this squeamish kid they replaced Boba Fett with?

I can handle that they're trying to say that Mandalorians and Jango Fett had a sense of honor. I can handle the concept of Boba Fett being an honorable rogue and as such a story's hero, like he was handled in the Legacy of the Force books. But this just felt like a mess. This felt like they wanted to start setting Boba Fett up to be used as a hero later, but they couldn't go all out because he has to still be a bad guy in Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. The result just didn't work for me. And if you can't let Boba Fett go all out because he's a kid, then it's better to not use him at all.

On the plus side, the various cantinas and Hives of Scum and Villainy were very, very cool.
