Uhhh...what happened to all the clone troopers?

There was only a brief period of Clone Troopers, in the Star Wars universe.

End of Episode 2, Throughout Episode 3, they are still being grown.

In between 3 and 4, their growth facilities are shut down, the Empire is back to recruiting citizens to be Storm Troopers. By the end of Episode 6, still a mix of Clones and Storm Troopers throughout the former Empire, but no telling the exact numbers.

If you consider the Clone Wars cartoons canon, then many, many died in between 2 and 3, as well as an unknown number of desertions, etc.

For Episode 7(the upcoming film), it may be as much as 30-40 years later... those Clone Troopers still alive would be far too old for active duty, even if they don't pull what many suspect will happen: "clone troopers have a shortened life span"

Then again, they claim to be ignoring most of the Extended Universe, so who knows what they will claim happened in Episode 7.

TL/DR: Before and after Episode 2-4, The Empire recruits normal citizens to be Storm Troopers. Clone Troopers are only a brief blip in the Star Wars Universe, largely spent on fighting Robots Armies.
