yeah, the season 3 so far has been a let down, i don't care about the politics of it, everyone is curupt, everyone knows that. Get to the meat and potatoes of the war itself. Tell me about the clones, not the senate.
And about Ventress, LucasArts is trying to make everything come together, but when they created Ventress, she was a warlord from Rattatak when Darth Tyranus found her. I guess i don't know for sure, because the episodes where Tyranus replaces Ventress with Savage Opress haven't aired yet., but as far as the trailers go, after Ventress is betrayed, she ends up on Dathomir, and one of the Night Sisters calls her "sister".
