Kamino was used as an out of the way place to extract the genetics from Fett. The DNA would remain on Kamino until they were battle ready. Jango Fett was not tied to just working for the Empire, as a Bounty Hunter he would work for whom ever offered the greater bounty.
Not caring or having an ounce of remorse Fett stayed loyal to Dooku. Even jumping in to offer protection. Protection that would end his life. His life would sew the seeds of hatred that his cloned son Boba would carry.
Needless to say the clones would also carry out Fett’s anger towards the Jedi and Rebellion. One man created armies and a son to carry on his work. One man, a simple man trying to make his way in the galaxy would reshape it.
Others would gain from his genetics and his grit. The Star Wars universe would take on an expansion as Jango’s template would be used for first generation Stormtroopers.
Jango Fett left his footprints all over the galaxy. It is his legacy.
