Oh yeah and a modern shotgun wouldn't have any effect on stormtroopers' armor.


If it was a widespread shot it might get them through the body glove weak areas, but Vol_ was actually referring to a scene in Star Wars: Empire at War - Forces of Corruption when crime lord Typer Zann shoots some troopers with his shotgun-like custom blaster.

Ah i haven't played the campaign.

Since when have the clones every really shown fear? ?They were genetically engineered or severely "re-socialized" to be completely obedient. ?They were told to miss while still making combat realistic and to minimize their own casualties as much as possible.

has it even been confirmed that stormtroopers are cloned people?

I've always wondered that, did the Empire continue using clones after the wars or are stormtroopers just ordinary "humans". If they are still clones then why the name change? and would the Emperor trust the cloners not to programe them to turn on their commanders as they did the Jedi?

Aside from the obvious intended similarities between Stormtroopers and Clonetroopers, the Empire did continue to use clones, but supplemented them with real (albeit psychologically conditioned) people as well as using a variety of clone templates rather than solely Jango Fett (which is why the Stormtroopers have different voices from the Clonetroopers and are not all the same height).

A very good point, and in actual fact the scenario you suggest did actually happen, leading to the Empire using clone templates other than Jango Fett and taking in recruits.

In the story of star wars battle front 2 after one of the missions it is revealed that they stopped just using clones so to prevent someone from creating another clone army and some how ensure loyalty.  In the books the none clone stormtroopers where put though training similar to Marines in addition to various resocialization programs to the point where they almost didn't remember their own name.
