This is a question that has been pondered by Star Wars fans from the time of A New Hope. Now there is an answer. Due to genetic drift the Empire was forced to find a new genetic template to replace the original template used to produce the Clone Troopers. Unfortunately, they chose quite poorly.

"We can about our business."
"Yousa okeyday!"

"Move along."
"Begone wit yousa!"

Wasn't there a line in Brian Daly's radio play about how bad stormtrooper armor smelled? Gungan sweat. Ugh.

OK. That answers one question. Now we need to figure out why the red-shirted ensigns from Star Trek keep dying.

That is hilarious!

On a more seroius note, I always wondered the same thing. I mean didn't Obi-Wan once say in ANH "Only Imperial Stormtroopers are so precise," (I believe that was the quote off the top of my head). If they are so accurate then how come they always miss, or perhaps Obi-Wan only remembers the original clone stormtroopers seeing as he's been on Tatooine for so long. Or perhaps they are clones of clones, which as we've seen in Multiplicity, doesn't turn out right.

I think what he meant to say was "Only Imperial Stormtroopers are so precise, from a certain point of view ... that of a blind man."

I forgot that that part got left on the cutting room floor.

You don't understand, except for our heroes, nobody else in the SW universe can hit the broad side of a barn (except those specially-trained Tuskens shooting at 700kph podracers... DARN YOU EPISODE I!!!!) :D
