If Jango Fett was the genetic template for the storm troopers (which is what I assume they were implying), why do they have American accents in the first three movies? Were English accents considered a genetically undesirable trait and removed from the cloning process?
That's a New Zealand accent, mate! (Oh, and the answer to your question is no, English and other non-USA accents are not genetically undesirable :-).)
The kid's (Boba's) accent was pretty strong too. I was laughing during their conversation while flying through the asteroid field: it's not every day I get to hear a Kiwi accent out here in Norway.
ObLongTimeNoDiaryEntry: I've been submerged with work for ages. I decided a while back that I was going to ignore everything else until I got the new release of prc-tools out the door. It took at least six weeks longer than it should have, alas, and I finally released 2.1 on Monday. Phew! So now I can get back to having a life, working on more interesting parts of prc-tools, and replying to all the friends' emails I've been ignoring (sorry Graham!).
