* RedHerring: When Anakin is trying to fight against the Geonosians inside of the Droid factory, he at one point gets his arm trapped within a piece of molded armor, and is drawing closer and closer to a crushing machine/cutting machine, causing the audience to think he'll lose his arm as a result of the battle in a CallFoward to ''The Empire Strikes Back''. Turns out, he actually loses it during the battle with Dooku later.

* ShownTheirWork: When the two Jedi are interrogating Zam Wesell to figure out who hired her, just as she's about to spill the beans, a projectile(later revealed to be a Kaminoan Sabre-Dart) imbeds itself in her neck, followed by the report of the weapon that fired it--though this may seem a plot contrivance to make sure that we're surprised by the dart, in actuality this is an example of this trope, as in reality, super-sonic weapons fired from a long range(Jango Fett is clearly a long way off in the subsequent shot) impact before the sound of their firing reaches the target, which is part of the reason why they're so deadly. You don't get to hear the shot and drop, as is often shown in cinema, you drop and then you hear the shot(or, if you're the target, your buddies do, but by then the shooter's usually re-located, again, as in the film).

* AwesomeButImpractical: Anakin's LeeroyJenkins moment against Count Dooku has him going at it [[DualWielding with two lightsabers]]. CrowningMomentOfAwesome that it is, he lacks the skill necessary to keep it up for long and ends up getting himself disarmed...in both senses of the word.

* LoopholeAbuse: After Anakin re-transmits Obi-Wan's message to the Jedi Council, Mace Windu informs him the Jedi are on their way to rescue Obi-Wan, and orders him to stay with Padmé and continue to guard her. When Padmé points out to Anakin that she and he are much closer to the planet where Obi-Wan is than anyone else and the other Jedi aren't likely to arrive in time, Anakin insists that (for once) he's going to follow his orders and stay with her to keep her safe. Her solution is to insist that ''she's'' going to go rescue Obi-Wan, so in order to follow orders, he'll have to come with her. Interestingly, when their rescue attempt predictably gets them in trouble, Anakin doesn't bother pointing out that this was technically all ''her'' idea when Obi-Wan is chiding him for taking such a stupid risk.

The conduct of the wars and their eventual fallout is/was explored in a number of cross-media projects elsewhere-- ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars'' was an animated miniseries of 5-minute and 12-minute "episodettes" that enlarges the scale of the conflict and [[ADayInTheLimelight the people who fought in it]] by showing individual battles and [[AscendedExtra more obscure characters]], airing between the release of Episode II and Episode III, where the end of the Clone Wars is depicted. ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' was a CGI television show produced a few years after the release of Episode III, something of a SpiritualSuccessor to the previous series (very few production members are shared) but with a longer format to elaborate on the interpersonal conflicts and political atmosphere. This is all not to mention numerous other comic and novelized spin-offs covering everyone from Grievous to Boba Fett and back again.

Structurally, Episode II focused on Anakin Skywalker's [[ComingOfAgeStory maturation against the political drama and personal loss]], while showing [[CrapsackWorld decay and corruption on a galactic scale.]] It's purposefully a CallForward to ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack''--everything from the inclusion and importance of the Fett family, to the usage of the Imperial March, and a chase through an asteroid field. Plot-wise, it hews closer to a MurderMystery-Political Thriller, and tries to inject some [[ActionFilmQuietDramaScene quiet moments]] in a galaxy on the brink of destruction.
