Yeah, I know it's 20 years. But you don't think he will declare himself Emperor in one of these movies? I personally think he will. That's why I think we will see Stormtroopers.

let me clarify by saying that episode 2 takes place 20 years before episode 4. i think the storm troopers, despite what they initially wear, won't appear until palpatine declairs himself emperor(he'll need an army to protect his seat of power). that probably will happen between episode 3 and 4.
besides, the more outfits the clone/stormtroopers have, the more action figures they can sell;)
