* ContractualImmortality: No matter how dire the situation, we already know Anakin and Obi-Wan are going to live, as well as everyone else who was in ''Revenge Of The Sith''. One of the strengths of the series, though, was introducing a vast number of new characters for the series who ''weren't'' guaranteed to survive (including main characters like Ahsoka and every clone besides Commander Cody).

* ExecutiveMeddling: Creator/GeorgeLucas, being an executive producer, had a say in certain creative decisions (usually for minor things) that would override decisions made by the writers - for instance, it was actually a last-minute suggestion on his part that led to Ziro the Hutt acquiring his speech pattern. Interestingly, it was also Lucas who suggested to design Cad Bane to be Creator/LeeVanCleef [[RecycledInSpace in space]], and his changes generally didn't interfere with how the stories themselves were told, [[TropesAreTools so it works both ways]].
* ExecutiveVeto: George Lucas occasionally exercises this power on the show. For instance, the finale of ''The Lost Missions'' ends on the planet Korriban - however, the term "Moraband" came up during discussion, and Lucas suggested that it should be the planet's canonical name. A writer later added that "Korriban" is simply an alternative name.

* DoingItForTheArt: The amount of work put into this series really shows how much the crew cared about it, even just observing from the surface. But when you start noticing and then paying attention to such trivial things like posters on the walls of clone barracks or clubs, the elaborate details on spaceships, bugs crawling around on branches, ''garbage'' thrown away on the lower streets of Coruscant, and dozens of other tiny little background details the creators have sneaked in - despite the fact that most viewers probably wouldn't register any of it the first time viewing - it becomes mind-blowing! Then consider that all of this is made in CGI, with a relatively low budget when the series was only starting. And when their budget and technological assets increased as the series progressed, they did even more with it.
** Going even further, they had assets to use from Lucasfilm's archives. For instance, during the production of Season 3 episode "Wookiee Hunt", the crew had a meeting with Peter Mayhew to make sure they got Chewbacca's appearance (while working within the art style of the show), characterization and body language accurately.

* ChannelHop: Due to Disney acquiring Lucasfilm, the series was pulled from CartoonNetwork after its fifth season concluded, most likely because the prospect of Ted Turner profiting off a Disney-owned IP was unfathomable to Bob Iger. The sixth and final season wound up on {{Creator/Netflix}}.

* ScrewedByTheLawyers: Just like what happened to certain [[WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen other]] [[WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan shows]] when Disney purchased Marvel, Clone Wars ended up getting cancelled after Disney decided they'd rather invest in their own cartoon. The silver lining though is the remainder of the series will air on Netflix.
