Here is another villain who deserved more time on screen. Jango Fett was deemed one of the greatest bounty hunters in the Star Wars universe and the subject who was chosen to provide the DNA for the Republic to create their horde of clones. Jango was so important that the Republic wanted thousands upon thousands of him. So why is his death so quick in the franchise?
We are provided with very little backstory on Jango other than his willingness to provide the Republic with their clones and a brief introduction to his son Boba, who clearly holds his father in the highest regard. But as frustratingly short as Jango’s time in the Star Wars film universe is, it is only a small fraction of what makes his death so very heartbreaking.
The true reason Jango’s death is so sad is that Mace Windu’s execution of the bounty hunter leaves Boba an orphan. The shot of Boba walking out onto the battlefield during the Clone Wars and holding his father’s decapitated head against his own is a hard one to forget and one most of us shed at least one or two tears over when watching the scene unfold.
