Then surely the clones would be mighty... Imagine a battle between Hundreds of Sith's and Jedi's...

Still can't figure out why the Emperor did'nt do that...

He didn't want to create clones that could potentially be more powerful than himself. Sure they'd be powerful, but he couldn't mentally manipulate them the way that he wanted. If you want to wipe out the Jedi, you don't create millions of other powerful Jedi to do it. Instead, you build idiots.

Wasn't Maul a secret?

If Palpy came forth with his DNA, wouldn't questions get asked? Secrets get shared? Supreme Chancellors get impeached? Not to mention his body fell down that shaft-thingy. Can't imagine them getting a DNA sample too easily from him 10 years later.

Technically they wouldn't get the DNA ten years later because the cloning began 10 years (or more) before AOTC, so Maul would be alive and well to give DNA samples. They could have dificulties getting DNA from him to make new clones, but why not just take DNA out of a clone?

PENDO!

The clone's abilities don't really matter. Ol Paply's contolling both sides in the conflict remember. His goal is power and the extermination of the Jedi order. He already has absolute power in AOTC. Now he just needs to get rid of the Jedi - and Anakin is his primary tool for that. He doen't need the rebublics approval or anything to get rid of the Jedi. He has ABSOLTE POWER. He doesn't give a rats @%# what anybody else thinks. The big businesses like the Trade Federation, Corporate Alliance, etc.. are all making big money. Palpy doesn't care about money. He's only in it for revenge. The Clones are only a small part. He just needs a huge army quickly, and the clones are the fastest way of producing a decent army. If the Clones ended up getting beat by the Battle droids of the seperatists, who cares, Palpy controlls the seperatists too. He wins either way.

I hope we finally get to find out what they really want revenge for. "At last we will have revenge!"

He didn't want thousands of clones who just stand there and watch while they get cut in half. ;)

This is all going under the assumption that just because Maul looks like a bad-mofo, he must be one. How do we know that Jango isn't equally or even more skilled than Maul? In the trailer we see him kicking Obi-Wan's lightsaber out of his hand. No easy feat, I would assume.

Maul was a mindless puppet, Jango seems to be a man who has carved his own niche in the galaxy and is chosen for his long list of accomplishements. Something Maul didn't have. (Unless you buy into the EU interpretation)
