I pick Storm Troopers cuz they look slightly better than the clones, Arent the clones the ones who evolved to Storm troopers? Have you noticed that the Storm Troopers were named after the Nazi SS Storm troopers?
Haha. That is something. But I guess it probably had something to do with the fact that all the movie producers by that time (the 70's when Star Wars was being filmed) were WWII Vets and needed to come up with a name for something evil, so they named them after their nemeses, the Nazi SS Storm Troopers, except without the "Nazi SS" before "Storm Troopers".
But yeah, I'd say that the Storm Troopers are the coolest. But the Clones are quite interesting as well. The thing is, when I first saw Star Wars, I knew that the Storm Troopers were dust because they never had any name tags - just numbers to identify them ("JK-427").
Storm Troopers: ocupation, inspiring fear, enforcing domination of Emporer
Basicly clone troopers are great, but their lifespans grow a bit short (sped up aging) after a while and more clones have to be created and trained for another full size army, that takes decades. So came the stormtrooper, while clones still alive were introduced into the service as stormtroopers, most stormtroopers were recruits trained to act as soldiers. Main purpose is to impose the emporers rule through fear, kill any random person so often and kill any who disobey the law, people don't want to mess with the empire when they see other people getting shot at random. With the death star and imperial fleet under construction, which took quite alot of credits, armor had to be downgraded to still serve the basic purpose but not cost as much as clone or stormclone armor. A few additions were made such as breathing modules, advanced communication systems, but over all it was a downgrade from the storm clone armor which had all the advantages of storm trooper armor with none of the disadvantages.
Clone Troopers: Invasion, Special Ops, War Time
The clone troopers came in mass numbers of highly trained clones of an elit bounty hunter. Expensive and time consuming as it was it was the ultimate army at the time. These units were ment to serve in a full scale war that would last just a few years. Created to establish order the clone army doesn't last too long, but can be replaced by storm troopers once they are too few in number to effectively hold the empires grip on the galaxy.
Sith Troopers: War time, occupation, spreading fear
The ancient sith troopers were the most feared. Faceless armor added to horror in their victims eyes. They took planets easily and killed millions of enemies. Usualy highly trained veterans the sith troopers are cunning to the ways of war. As they are recruited they can still be used for occupations.
I would vot for sith troopers if it were an option, but since it isn't I'll just vot for old clonies
Clone Troopers by far. They are far more likened to a military force than just "the bad guys" like the Storm Troopers they "evolve" to be. They have battlefield command posts, officers who know their shit tactically, and better vehicles.
Storm Troopers are almost the predecesor to Clone Troopers they're so bad.
We couldn't have the Stormtroopers winning against the "good guys" now can we? I have a feeling that the stormtroopers were far more tactically sound than they were shown. No one can be that bad and call themselves a soldier. I'd go with my theory of they didn't have much opposistion after the Empire was established, because no on had the guts to fight them, so they grew complacent.
But I just don't understand why all the tech seemingly downgraded over time. In Episode II they have those completly badass dropships with practically Napalm Lasers, then progress some years forward and we get the paper-thin-armored AT-ST.
Well, Incom, the company that produced the X-Wing fighter, one of the best fighters ever made in the Star Wars universe, switched to the Rebel's side. This prevented the Empire form having advanced, and efficent star fighters in battle.
