Darth Sidious would have had a harder time to overthrow the Galactic Republic if it had used this strategic asset!
While Lucasfilm and Disney are busy thinking about the new trilogy Star Wars of which an unpublished image revealed the future enemies of the Haute-République , the fans redo the prelogy. And this to the point of analyzing the behavior of the Galactic Republic and what it could have ultimately done in order to beat Palpatine ( Ian McDiarmid ) at the end of Revenge of the Sith . The Emperor's plan was actually twofold during these episodes as the Sith Lord established two armies. The first, composed of droids belonging to the Separatists then that of the clones commanded by the Jedi Sifo-Dyas before Darth Sidious ultimately takes control.
However, this one could have fought more the Lord of the dark side and tried to maintain the established order by using an essential and amazing asset, namely the droids used by his opponents during the clashes of Naboo and Geonosis.
