One thing I've always been simultaneously fascinated, but also confused, by was the role of the Geonosians. Were they part of the separatist movement as legitimate members who felt they were oppressed or were they just another corporate entity looking for profits like the Federation and Techno Union. We see them build battle droids but sources say the Geonosian factories are property of the Techno Union. However, we clearly see they have their own culture and were all willing to watch Republic spies be executed for treason. Also, TCW implies that the Council was made up of corporations and the Parliament was made up of actual separatist senators. Yet, Poggle The Lesser had a position on the Council along with Po Nudo, who was just a senator. Any thoughts on what the Geonosians role are in the actual Separatist Movement? Also, a bigger question: Wouldnt actual separatists be suspicious about people like Nute Gunray and Wat Tambor, clearly part of the corruption from the Old Republic, being members of their movement?
