Added DiffLines:

* AssholeVictim: The Tusken raiders who murder Shmi, though Anakin [[WouldHurtAChild killing their children]] was rather unwarranted, as Anakin would later [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone lament]] to Padmé.

* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: Count Dooku's effectiveness as a mysterious villain (as parodied in a [[http://www.gamespite.net/toastywiki/index.php/Site/ThumbnailEpisodeII02 Thumbnail Theatre]]) would undoubtedly have been more effective if his action figure packaging hadn't given away the fact that he was a Sith Lord months before the ''Attack of the Clones'' was released. Even if you never saw anything that gave away his Sith Lord status, the movie still did a horrible job of hiding it.

Added DiffLines:

* VillainRevealsTheSecret: Dooku has Obi-Wan imprisoned and tells him the truth: Darth Sidious is in control of the Republic. Not only does this not backfire, it actually helps the Sith. By telling the Jedi this, they start investigating Republic senators and Sidious latches on to this to create tension between the Jedi and Republic, ultimately allowing him to declare them traitors. [[XanatosGambit If they did nothing, Sidious continues his plan unbothered so he wins either way.]]

Added DiffLines:

* INeedAFreakingDrink: Who could blame Obi-Wan? You'd need one too after jumping out a window, getting shot at and then falling dozens of feet, only to land in a stolen speeder driven by a reckless, fearless Padawan.


* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: The films in general don't treat Tusken Raiders as much better than savages. As observed by several reviewers, Padmé doesn't react much to Anakin admitting to genocide of an entire Tusken Raider tribe, women and children included, for [[PayEvilUntoEvil torturing his mother to death]].

** During his space battle with ''Slave I'', Obi-Wan evades Jango Fett by powering his ship down and hiding on the side of an asteroid, just like how the ''Millennium Falcon'' hides from the Imperial Star Destroyer in ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack''. According to Lucas' director commentary, this was also meant to explain why Boba Fett sees through that trick in ''The Empire Strikes Back'': he's seen it before, and remembers Obi-Wan trying it on his father.

* ArbitrarilyLargeBankAccount: One Jedi Master could order up an entire clone army and fleet of warships apparently without having to go through any kind of budget request to either the Jedi Council or the Senate. The ''Legends'' novel ''Literature/DarthPlagueis'' states that the funding was provided by the titular character, who happens to be a wealthy banker as well as a Sith Lord. Within the Canon, it is justified by having Count Dooku - essentially the richest man in the galaxy - fund the army under his Sith name Tyranus.

Just prior to the climactic fight with Dooku, when Anakin and co. are chasing his speeder in a Republic gunship, the only reason [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim they don't avoid a lightsaber duel by shooting him down]] is that they ran out of missiles in the preceding battle.

And this is after Gunray was acquitted for war crimes after ''four trials'' (which, admittedly, cost him a fortune in credits). This is especially nonsensical since Padme is the leader of the opposition to the Republic using armed force against the Separatists, so the Separatist leaders should have a vested interest in keeping her around. Talk about having a sense of entitlement!
