Although the Imperial stormtroopers are all clones of the Mandalorian Jango Fett, they're not the same. We know from Star Wars: The Clone Wars that they have their own personalities. This means that some stormtroopers' sexual orientation is like their shooting skills: not straight.

In this Spanish video, "Love Wars," we see what happens when two clone troopers share a secret relationship. (Obviously, Emperor Palpatine has his own version of don't ask, don't tell.)

Their romance is extremely passionate, much like one of those telenovelas we've glimpsed on Telemundo. It's both touching and hilarious, considering these two men are having a heart-to-heart while wearing their white plasteel armor.
