Indeed. In TCW, we saw one Jango clone had a deformed body. And a team was failing to pass an obstacle course until they chose to be more creative. Not mentioned in AOTC, was a bit where Lama Su said that Jango's DNA needed to be extracted regularly. The more it's used, the less potent it became.
It is dearfully boring filler though, that anybody who's already seen it is likely to fast-forward though.
The same can't be said about the asteroid field, the speeder bike chase, or even 90% of the rest of episode 1.
The pod race is the worst part of an already very bad film.
'The marquis. Well, you know, to be honest, he seems a little bit dodgy to me.'
'Mm,' she agreed. 'He's a little bit dodgy in the same way that rats are a little bit covered in fur."
I can only imagine the reaction when the first slivers of information start to leak out...concept art, script synopsis
I expect the dark corners of the internet to collapse in on themselves

Didn't they think he was the Chosen One before the Battle of Naboo? Beside that they also think the kid's to dangerous to train, even at the end of the movie this is something that comes up, so they can't just be cool with little Annie after he accidentally blew a ship up. They also don't ever seem to trust him, but even if they did begin to after ten years, that doesn't have anything to do with Phantom Menace and them letting Obi-Wan train him.

Han Solo: You love him,
Han Solo: don't you?
Princess Leia: Yes.
Han Solo: All right. I understand. Fine. When he comes back, I won't get in the way.
Princess Leia: Oh, Han, it's not like that at all. He's my brother.
Obviously, Han should have gone "wait, didn't you kiss him to spite me in Hoth? What the hell are you two playing at?
Surrounded by a lot of filler. Too many characters, disposable villains, too many factions and not enough of the important character.There was still a lot that needed to be focused on. How Palpatine rose to power, which we see in TPM and AOTC. We see how the Clone Army and subsequent Clone Wars came about. We see the relationship between Anakin and Padme. We learn of Anakin's beginnings with his mother and his desire to do good. We get all the important details in each film.
He could have had his breakdown earlier, instead of in Cloud City, after losing a hand to Vader, and then he could have started working in the "let's redeem him" plot.So you would be fine if you found out your father, a man whom you idolized, but never met, was a serial killer? You wouldn't go off the deep end?
Nope, that adds emotion to the movie. I agree with the speeder bike chase, but then again, I don't like a lot of the stuff in Jedi, starting with the Ewoks.We can delete the garbage compactor in ANH, the asteroid field in TESB and the Speeder Bike chase in ROTJ.
It's a bit different in the case of the Rebel Alliance leader and a constantly-on-the-wrong-side-of-the-law smuggler. Shmee is just a slave with zero special skills and combat training. Even if Luke hadn't gone to Cloud City (Yoda was, in fact, expecting him not to go), Lando would have set them free. The ones he could, anyway.The point is that Anakin had to let go of his mother period. Worrying about his attachments, regardless of how close or far away there are, will change his inability to let go of them. Just as Luke had to let go of his sister and his friends, in ROTJ.
Keeping his mother safe would have shaved 9 years, 11 months and 29 days off that time. They would have had a grateful Chosen One.Because they believe he is the Chosen One, based on what he did during the Battle of Naboo. If he is the Chosen One, then he has to be trained. They begin to trust him after ten years. The reason for the mistrust is because he had fear for his mother. Fear was the first step to the dark side, as established in TESB.
Like I said earlier, Han still believed Luke to be a competitor until the brother revelation.
Correction, the love triangle was already dissolved in TESB. Luke and Leia only have two scenes where they interact and most of the time, she's clearly in love with Han.
As shown above, the picture was taking from TESB during the making of the film and was cut. All scene where Luke and Leia had an inclination for a relationship, never made it into the film. What was left was a scene where Leia kisses Luke to make Han jealous, since they earlier discussed the idea of kissing and she stated she would rather kiss a Wookiee. Because Kershner cut those other scenes out, there is no love triangle in TESB and by ROTJ, Lucas decided to make them related since that door was already closed.
