* Padding: The Season 5 episode "A Sunny Day in the Void" is perhaps the most uneventful episode of the entire series, consisting almost entirely of D-Squad, [[ArmchairMilitary Colonel Gascon]] and WAC-47 wandering around the desert planet Abafar for 22 minutes. The only reason it seems to exist is as character development for two characters whom nobody really liked, and it's not hard to imagine how it could have been made more interesting or replaced entirely with an episode that was more exciting.

** Wilhuff Tarkin is a colossal dick to everybody right off the bat, introduced in the Citadel Arc as [[ComplainingAboutRescuesYouDontLike badmouthing]] [[UngratefulBastard the Jedi]] while himself [[Hypocrite contributing nothing to the escape attempt.]] His return in the temple bombing arc, where he fixates on Ahsoka as the culprit [[KnightTemplar and refuses to accept evidence to the contrary]], only increases his hatedom, especially since the ForegoneConclusion means he'll never get any comeuppance. However, his role in the story is held up as an example of how to correctly develop an original-trilogy character's background, as well as nicely foreshadowing the Empire and Anakin's inevitable turn to the dark side.

** Similar to the above, Dooku suggests in season 3 that he plans to [[TheStarscream betray Sidious]] and become the new Dark Lord of the Sith. After Savage leaves Dooku's service, this storyline is never mentioned again, with Dooku spending the remainder of the series as Sidious' loyal subordinate. Again, while Dooku remaining Sidious' apprentice is a ForegoneConclusion, it's still a lot of wasted story potential.

Though WhatCouldHaveBeen before the series cancelation would have gotten to the Dark Disciple arc, which is now a novel, and does allude to Dooku's intended betrayal.

* BetterThanCanon: While the series is canon to the films, the series is widely considered to have done a better job portraying Anakin than the Prequel trilogy; he's genuinely likable despite his flaws, he and Obi-Wan actually come across as close friends, and his conflicted feelings about the Jedi are rather less {{Wangst}}-y Some even say knowledge of the series' events retroactively improves his portrayal in the prequels to an extents.

* UnpopularPopularCharacter: In universe, Hondo Ohnaka isn't exactly the most popular character. Both Sith and Separatists hate him for either capturing their leaders or humiliating them in some way. He's not too popular with the Jedi either and even Obi-Wan, the one Jedi Knight whom Hondo considers his friend, sees having to deal with Hondo as an unpleasant chore. He can be popular with his own men but even they would willingly backstab him if they saw an opening, since they're all space pirates. With fans, however, Hondo is wildly popular as a BreakoutCharacter and even now, there are some people petitioning for him to be included in the new Star Wars movies.

** When it became clear that he was going to lose Ryloth in "Liberty on Ryloth", Wat Tambor ordered the bombing of every Twi'lek village on the planet - explicitly stating "the inhabited ones first" - just to send the galaxy a message about [[PyrrhicVictory "the cost of a Republic victory"]]. If he didn't cross it then, he crossed it when he performed inhumane experiments on sentient beings (even killing at least one of them) during the Bad Batch arc.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: The Season Five arc, featuring a group of insurgents fighting against the Separatists, who Obi-Wan has minor doubts over whether or not their actions may degenerate into terrorism. The capital of this group's home-world is named 'Iziz'.
