Although I'm sad it's over, this was a great ending to a great series.
The next story arc, 3 episodes, is centered on how Sidious ultimately obtains control of the banking guild in order to fund creation of the Empire as we see in the original trilogy. Padme and Clovius are the main characters with a jealous Anakin and an always nefarious Count Dooku in the picture. It's an okay story, but feels like it could have been condensed to only 2 episodes and it is very predictable.
Next comes a pair of episodes involving Mace Windu and JarJar which are better than expected if you are not a Binks fan as I am. Queen Julia of Bardotta calls Binks for help and the Jedi send Windu to assist. Council Members are disappearing on Bardotta and it is threatening their civilization. Jar acts surprisingly competent, is crushed on by the Queen, and manages not to annoy Windu too much. They end up uncovering cult activity and the Queen gets kidnapped. After planet hopping an old enemy from a previous season returns. Windu is appropriately awesome as he dispatches the cultists.
Now for the best story of the season which is unfortunately the end of the series...sort of, but more on that in a moment. The scene starts with Master Poo Koon finding the long lost ship of Master Sifo-Dyas. This brings the Jedi closer to unlocking the Sith conspiracy sending Sidious and Dooku into action. Anakin and Obi-Wan head to Felicia to investigate Sifo-Dyas' last known location. More importantly Yoda talks to Chancellor Palpatine and becomes the central character in the final few episodes. Yoda travels to the Sith home world which is perfectly dark, gritty, crumbling, and imperial. It ends with Yoda learning how to merge with the physical force in order to live on after death which is very revealing and welcome.
That's how it ends. The show was cancelled despite that four more episodes were written, produced, recorded, and partially animated. Those episodes are included and would recommend watching despite not being fully animated. That story arc involves Anakin and Obi Wan up against Dooku. While it's never specifically stated, the central object of the story is a giant crystal that is no doubt meant for the Death Star. It's an entertaining four episodes despite the visual limitations.
It's kind of disappointing that there is so many unanswered questions. There was a number of events alluded to in "Revenge in the Sith" or the overall Star Wars cannon that episodes could have been done. But Lucas, having stopped being rationale years ago, sold out completely to Disney. Disney preferring a more kid centric Star Wars cartoon canned Clone Wars in favor of Rebels. The sudden end and the lack of a full seasons worth of episodes are the main reason I can't give this five stars.
Not much for extras, but what is there is pretty awesome. It includes the unfinished Utapau story arc that was originally only available on StarWars.com. If you don't know what I'm talking about there were at least 2 story lines that the actors finished but the art department didn't. So as a treat to fans they put up them up online. And thankfully they also put the "Crystal Crisis on Utapau Story Reel" as a special feature for us all to watch at home. Yes, the animation is really blocky and stiff. But it's still totally worth watching.
So overall I would definitely recommend this for any fan of the show. I will however add the caveat that I don't think the standard price is worth it. It lists for the same price that the other full seasons go for but with barely 1/2 the episodes on it. That being said, as I write this the asking price was $25. Worth Every Penny!
