It doesn't take Yoda to deduce that George Lucas's Lucas Arts probably wouldn't have cared that Ain't It Cool News published an early review of the forthcoming animated "The Clone Wars" if that review was positive. In fact, they probably would have been overjoyed.
But AICN's Harry Knowles produced a scathing critique, and Lucas decided to enforce a review embargo with a cease-and-desist letter. AICN soon took the review down, raising ire across galaxies near and far, far away.
Of course, the review has popped up elsewhere, so what purpose did sicking the company's lawyers on the geek army really serve?
