YMMV: Clone Wars Gambit
  • Alternate Character Interpretation: Anakin's characterization is a bit across the map with him being a highly racist Anti-Jedi (!?) character in the adaptation of the movie. Books by Karen Miller tend to focus on Anakin Skywalker as he appears in the television series, noble and loving to his padawan.
  • Broken Base: What with Karen Traviss writing for Star Wars, it was inevitable.
    • Post 2014 reboot, this is pretty much the only Clone Wars product to not be kept canon. Fans are arguing as to whether or not Disney should have made the entire thing canon or not.
  • Ho Yay: A complaint about the series, Clone Wars: Wild Space contained a great deal of intimate holding and comfort between a near-death Obi-Wan and Bail Organa.
    • Anakin and Obi-Wan can be taken this way too, what with all the holding and crying and parallels between Anakin's relationships with Obi-Wan and Padme. Anakin's jealousy over Taria (Obi-Wan's "ex-girlfriend" of sorts) and the fact that Anakin is almost always on Obi-Wan's mind doesn't help much.
  • Relationship Writing Fumble: Padme and Bail Organa are (probably) intended to be close platonic friends, what with them being married to other people and all. The problem is that they think "we are both married to other people" every time they spend time alone, or hug, or have a moment. It comes off very "me thinks they doth protest too much." In Wild Space, they also end up holding hands for a moment too long and become embarrassed when they realize it. In the same novel, Palpatine wonders if Padme realizes she's attracted to Bail.
  • The Woobie: Obi-Wan Kenobi.
