My favorite adventuress, er, Asaaj Ventress helps to liven things up. Those Coruscant security forces are surprisingly competent and effective. I gotta agree with the visuals, some parts of this I think are genuinely feature quality.
I'm kind of hoping this will end with Ahsoka alive but permanently leaving the Jedi. That would explain her absence in ROTS without requiring her to die like everyone expects.
I know you hate the supposed predictability of that action but Anakin's characterization in ROTS already seems off (to me at least) now after watching him in Clone Wars. I don't know if the narrative of ROTS is so precious as to not want to rock the boat.
