Yeah, the A-wings and B-wing in Rebels kinda bugs me too--though the actual B-wing episode is nowhere as bad as that linked post makes it out to be.  But we're living in a world where the Crystal Star, Courtship of Princess Leia, Jedi Academy Trilogy, Dark Empire comic, Darksaber and so many more are no longer canon, and that is more than worth the price. 

In other news, didn't anyone catch the Rebels references in Rogue One?

I know there were a few folks here who said they didn't see or catch all of the SWR Easter Egg/References in Rogue One.

That depends, is Sabine's mom Bo-Katan? Cuz she's supposed to show up in Rebels too. Though the stuff with Sabine in general does look pretty cool.

So I looked it up, and Obi Wan Kenobi will be voiced by Stephen Stanton. He voices Tarkin in both Clone Wars and Rebels, and voices the protocol droid who talks like Alan Rickman. In addition to playing a few different characters in Clone Wars, he also played Obi-Wan in a fan film and the video games Battlefront II and Empire At War. So clearly he has some experience playing Obi-Wan.

Not sure if you mean on this forum or in general. If it's in general, then I'd guess you're not familiar with the Mr. Plinkett reviews? The idea is apparently "overly choreographed" means it's too unrealistic to be compelling. Or rather, that it wasn't an acceptable substitute for a lack of dramatic imperative (which IMO, Clone Wars and Rebels were better at than the Phantom Menance anyway). A lot of people also complained that Yoda fought in the prequels, flips and all. I know people complained about that back when the films came out. Though as Honest Trailers pointed out, they might have gotten the idea for the flips from the Dagobah scenes from Empire Strikes Back, something that amuses me, and I imagine, makes Prequel haters spout steam out of their ears like a kettle.

Actually funny thing, the guy who does the review, literally refers to the Vader vs Obi-Wan fight in a New Hope as two old guys awkwardly flailing at each other. His argument is that it's till superior because we care about the characters and the story.
Personally I've never drank that particular Kool-Aid. It's possible to do visually interesting fight and interesting story to go with it. Look no further than the Luke/Vader fight in Jedi.

And yeah, I loves me the original trilogy, but the fight in A New Hope looked pretty weak, regardless of their age and with regards to their supposed skill level. The light saber fights in Empire and Jedi were much more visually using what the special effects guys were able to do at the time . And in the case of Jedi, Luke's aggressive attacks lacking grace or style fit his emotional state and the tone of the scene.

The fight in this episode of Rebels fit the tone of the scene as well.

Season 3 Finale of Rebels...

IMO, it was quite good.  Not as good as season 2's finale(which had much more emotion), but this finale had many of the elements we appreciate in Star Wars.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

I like what the show is doing.  It's focus is deliberately blended the elements of Star Wars that fans like and I for one appreciate it.  Glad we got another season.  Hope to see it catch up to Year 0.

If we are already taking about the next season,and missed opportunities of Clone Wars...Durge.Hes a bounty hunter,why not?
Or considering the Empire at War inspiration of this season,I wouldnt be surprised if Tyber Zahn shows up next.

Spade,

Actually, last I checked the Zahn Consortium has been placed in the official canon.  Even though Tyber Zahn has not.  Actually, now to mention it, the "underworld" of Star Wars has taken a bit of a backseat in the series, particularly over the last few seasons.  I mean, we've gotten Hondo and he's been a constant.  Again, no Boba Fett.  No Black Sun.  No Jabba the Hutt.  Or any other Hutt really.  It would be nice to see some other Clone Wars figures show up.  Like an older Jaybo Hood.  Or other figures from Kanan/Caleb's past.

And isn't Ventress still alive?

I mostly agree.

Like a lot of what you said and just a few things to touch on:

Also about Inquisitors, the names were "Fifth Brother" and "Seven Sister".  I would imagine(and I actually GMed a game using the motif) that there's at least 5 more Inquisitors for them to use.  Perhaps Inquisitors we know like Jerec or Tremayne outside of the "Brother" or "Sister" Inquisitors.  I don't think the Grand Inquisitor from season 1 went by that numeration.

Has anyone else had a huge problem with Mandalorians running around all over the place in this show?  A) When I was a Star Wars fan back in the day (we walked five miles to school, up hill both ways!  In the snow!), the Mandalorians had been wiped out in the Clone Wars.  That was more or less the established canon, and Bobba Fett was interesting because he was a survivor and a mystery.  B) It makes no sense for a warrior culture to survive in the Empire.  It doesn't fit the setting.

I'm slowly catching up here, but I find that my issues remain.  It just doesn't quite fit for me.

We even had Mandalorians in Legacy,way after Clone wars.So Bobba definitly wasnt the only one who survived.
