Eh... I'm on the fence, leaning more toward the side that the clones as portrayed in TCW was such a blatant contradiction to what had been revealed in AOTC. But on the same token, it never sat well with me that people like Padme or the Jedi were cool with an army cloned, without freedom, and sold into a life of servitude (i.e. slaves) that were loyal to the Republic merely because they were told to be, rather than having any kind of stake in the Republic to warrant patriotic sentiment. The idea that the clones were fairly individualistic was kind of a distraction in that I had to consciously stop and recall "...wait... these are STILL slaves" since the way that they were depicted in TCW didn't make it immediately apparent. But really, if they wanted a loophole for individualistic clones, they could have used the degrading Jango DNA as an excuse. Make something up like the Kaminoans resorting to improved cloning techniques and improved growth acceleration to make the process even faster to keep up with the Republic's demand to replace clone casualties, with some of these new clones proving to be "faulty" and too independent for it to be worthwhile to continue cloning and also accelerating the need for Order 66 before too many of the "old guard" got replaced by these faulty clones. I much rather would have liked to have seen clones more akin to how they were described in AOTC and the dilemma among Bail, Padme and the Jedi in regards to this army (without it, the Republic is defenseless, but with it the Republic is keeping slaves). Which could also have been a sore subject for Padme. She was troubled by the fact that the Republic's anti-slavery laws didn't extend to Tatooine in TPM, and now the Republic would have a slave army defending its borders.
