    Obi-Wan vs. Jango

    From IMDB:

    In DVD commentaries, the crew claims that the fight between Jango Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi was intentionally made different from the other fights in the films, in that it focused more on physical and hand-to-hand combat, something not done in the films often.

    A Way To Keep Track Of Everyone

    From IMDB:

    Several subtle visual clues were incorporated into the design of the shots to help audiences keep track of who's who. The good guys, the Republic Clones Troopers, always move from screen right to screen left, while the Separatist Battle Droids moved from screen left to screen right. The sun is behind the clones, resulting in a gloomier sky behind the Separatists. Finally, the missile contrails were color-coded to denote allegiance: the Republic rockets leave clean white trails, while the villains launch missiles that leave noxious black/purplish exhaust.
