I agree that some info, gaps are missing in a 21 minutes episode
when this happens, abrupt ending, clichés could occur.
the blend of characters often compromise the ethos or personality of a major one,
as stated above Obi Wan couldn´t prevent the workers slaughter.
Some new characters are kinda "Alice in Wonderland" by Lewis Carrol
for example, the fungi, medusa bounty hunter, looks like the Republic is more
animalizated each following time, they have to put a limit between alien and beast.
And the most bizarre thing, Anakin failed to slash the fungi bounty hunter and the green female alien one, however she was pushed away by the blade of his lightsaber.
