Just going back over the old TCW episodes, I looked at the Zygeria arc for a bit, and then I remembered why the arc annoyed me: in the Star Wars galaxy, as presented, slaves make absolutely no sense. Not just as a moral issue, as a practical one. Why? Simply put, droids. Just a handful of minutes into the first episode of the arc, the whole thing became so bizarre I just quit watching. Dooku and the Zygerians march a massive droid army into the city, empty it of inhabitants, and cart them off for slavery. The problem with this is so blatant that I barely feel it needs to be said, but I'll say it anyway - why attract pointless moral condemnation and feed Republic propaganda when you could just cut out the middleman and just give the Zygerians the droids instead? Nothing they do with the slaves in any way requires anything shown to be beyond the droids' capabilities, and the droids clearly outnumber the Togrutas by dozens to one. Slaves in the entire galaxy make no sense when you could just build a sentient machine to do it better, more efficiently, and willingly, but this especially stands out. I'm really sick of the CIS being portrayed as evil for the sake of evil, but this just makes me want to find whoever thought this up and punch them until they become less brain-dead.
