** Looking closely at the scene, Mace only cut the blaster in half. When Jango's body falls over, his hand is still attached.

** Threepio has probably heard about Artoo's experiences on Naboo, which include him repairing a shield generator while turbolaser batteries blew apart the astromech droids aboard Queen Amidala ' starship, or flying into the hanger of a Trade Federation warship and blowing it up from the inside. "Trouble" for Threepio could pretty much describe any adventures involving the possibility of being harmed. In any case, it is entirely in character for C-3PO to engage in idle hyperbole when he's chattering. He's not saying that he has literally seen Artoo getting into trouble, he's saying he's worried about Artoo.

* This just occurred to me after I played KOTOR and TOR games; ''how'' does the Republic protects its own territories prior the deployment of the Clone Army? I mean, why is the Republic, which is consisted of countless star systems throughout the galaxy, has no grand army to defend itself at all? Just look at what happened in The Phantom Menace: the Trade Federation, a fairly minor faction, was able to form a blockade around Naboo and the best the Republic could do was sending two Jedi to solve the whole crisis. Flash forward to the Clone Wars, and even the mighty Clone Army struggles to beat the Separatists for years. If the Clone Army was never created, the Republic would be so screwed when thousands of planets declare war on it without any form of major military force to defend itself. Sure, Palpatine was manipulating them, but what about ''before'' that, when Valorum was still the Chancellor? Considering if the Old Republic is still canon, what happened to ''that'' army in those days? The Old Republic Army with soldiers who could take the fight to Force-sensitives on their own terms?

** I gathered that the Galaxy had pretty much been in peace for a long time. It's hard to justify keeping a grand army around when there isn't a war, unless you're a dictatorship intending to intimidate the people, The Republic probably kept it's military budget low while it devoted its spending to galactic infrastructure or something like that. Whatever problems the galaxy had were often ones that could be solved by a couple of monks with magical powers. Ironically, this attitude probably fanned the flames of the Separatist movement; if the Republic was ill-equipped to defend a world from a major attack. why should they pay hefty taxes and follow legislation drafted by corrupt politicians light-years away when they would be just as well off on their own?

** Looking at the scene, she doesn't kiss him, just hugs him. Given that he had just got his arm cut off, it appeared just to be a sign of comfort, at least as far as the onlookers are concerned.

* At least prior to the Blu-Ray editions, there's a scene right after Dooku's escape where Padme runs up to a crippled Anakin and the two kiss. Yoda, some clones and even Obi-Wan are watching. The only way to cover this bad writing up would be to say that Anakin uses the Force to temporarily blind everyone and/or give them amnesia. "Blind we are", Yoda says about the Jedi, maybe he's more right than he realizes?

* "I wonder what happened to poor little R2. He's always getting himself into trouble." Why would C-3PO say such a thing when he ''barely'' knows R2 at all, and has not once seen R2 get himself into trouble?

** Well, in the old Legends lore, it allowed for an advanced user (Dooku being considered either the best duelist or one of them) to be able to pull tricks that would be difficult for a less experienced fighter to account for or pull off (somewhat minor tricks, but when you're in a duel to the death, a minor advantage can quickly spiral into an overwhelming one if you're one of the top duelists in the galaxy). Another possibility is ergonomics. Dooku might simply find the handle more comfortable as a personal preference. He's incredibly rich due to being a noble and lightsabers are already personally built, so it's not like he can't make a new one.
