"Only a light garrison was left on the planet to protect the world, the Republic tacticians not believing that thunder would strike in the same place twice."

Those are weasel words.

A light garrison? More than eighty of the order's "finest knights" are part of a low priority garrison?? (- -) 06:02, November 2, 2009 (UTC)

Maybe there were more jedi back then so 80 was a small number compared to the rest.Gorvar 16:48, November 22, 2009 (UTC)

Similarity to Thermopylae Edit

I recently watched the new timeline and saw the similarities between this stand of the Republic against the Sith and the stand that the Greek forces made against the Persians at the Battle of Thermopylae. Just a sudden realisation. --Thenorthernman 13:14, November 15, 2009 (UTC)

Republic Soldiers Edit

Why do the Republic troops bear such a close resemblance to Clone Troopers. I though clone trooper armor was based on mandalorian design. Mando Warrior 17:42, November 21, 2009 (UTC)

I think they are cashing in on the Clone Wars (comics) series.It could also explain why during the clone wars they picked that uniformGorvar 16:47, November 22, 2009 (UTC)

They are not cashing in on anything - Out of universe the design on republic trooper armour - the armour of the swtor class "Republic Trooper" is based on that of the Clone Troopers and the Storm Troopers - an iconic feature of the star wars universe. In universe they are based on that of the Mandalorian full body armour, just like the later clone armour and storm trooper armour are suppose to be based on previous republic military armour's and that includes the Republic Trooper. I very much doubt they have taken any notice of the clone wars comic series, both swtor and the comic series have based the armour on the same first sources. ░▒▓ Alex | Talk ▓▒░ 16:56, November 22, 2009 (UTC)

Article Name Edit

Shouldn't this article be called Second Battle of Bothawui (Great Galactic War), like most other battles on this wiki? I don't understand why it was moved? ░▒▓ Alex | Talk ▓▒░ 22:47, January 23, 2010 (UTC)

  • Please check the nomination page for the various reasons. This name is tenative until a better solution is found. Darth Trayus(Trayus Academy) 22:51, January 23, 2010 (UTC)

Just watched the timeline twice over, it quite clearly states that "Allusis and his men perished, but not before the Imperials were driven to defeat", which implies that not all of the Republic Troops were killed, otherwise the Sith forces would have occupied the planet. When I tried to edit the article to reflect this, it was promptly changed back. Q-35 19:40, January 22, 2012 (UTC)
