"wouldnt it make sense for the kaminoans to keep producing clones for the empire and if so why wouldnt thrawn, in zahns books use them?"
Of course it would make sense. On www.theforce.net, I think there also was an article from the eighties in a magazine that stated that Stormtroopers are clones!!
However, cloning is a very expensive procedure. Cloning *one* human embryo today costs at least $200,000...
And the Empire needs millions of clones, then they need all the snazzy enhancements, not to mention all the expensive weapons.... one must wonder whether the Clonetrooper program bankrupted the Old Republic....
