This is something that's been annoying me for awhile, and it all sort of culminated with the Season 2 premiere -I'm referencing (and highlighting, for safety) just one event, and I'm trying not to get too specific, but beware for slight spoilers. What's with all of the clever and witty droids we've been seeing? The battle droids frequently offer a sort of off-hand humour, and in the premiere we see Cad Bane's droid, who also has that sort of disobedience and sarcasm. In the movies I guess you could sort of classify Artoo like this, but it seemed necessary in his situation. We also had I-Five from several of Michael Reaves' books. Chances are I'm reading way too much into this, but is anyone getting annoyed? Droids -or at least the battle droids that tend to do the majority of the attempted humour- are manufactured to serve a purpose, not to be entertaining. In fact, I would think that the producers (of the droid, not the show) would go through great lengths to not make them amusing, as in a battlefield situation that could be a huge disadvantage.
