This has always been a cool topic, discussed on various boards. Unfortunately, often it ended up in a negative bashing and trashing thread.
Here's my thoughts:
I don't think all STs are Clones. To maintain a cloning program of that size would surely cost way too much credits, even for Palpatine. We all know the Empire ruled by fear. So, I think the Empire eventually shifted its attention more to drafting regular people.
Take a look at the arrival of Palpatine in RotJ. And looks closely at the Royal Guards. There are quite some differences in height....
Also, in RotJ, there's the "fat" Biker Scout. I believe he's the one shouting "quick, go get your ride!".
Clones are of the same height, right? And due to their metabolism, follow strict diets and such?
So, while at first (two, three years ago) I was all against the whole ST=Clone idea, now I'm quite happy believing it's a mix of Clones and regulars.
I sure hope the STs will keep their original voices, though. And that Boba gets his original voice back in ESB as well....
