Vader's hate sustained him until Palpatine and the medical crew arrived.TIRex said:Maybe Sidious kept Vader alive with the help of the force until the cybernetics toke over.
What Anakin did was a 'crime of passion'. He was so wrapped up in the moment - in the confrontation with his wife - that her harming him had to be retaliated. It wasn't like he was thinking "BITCH, YOU GOTTA DIE" or something.TIRex said:And he couldn't let Padmé alive.
In Empire Strikes Back one of Vader's officers tells Vader that "a starship approaches, X-Wing class," or something of the sort. I could check the book upstairs if you wish, but it is an older version that my father had.However, what is NOT used anywhere in the movies is the term X-Wing
I wouldn't think so, the Force has a strong influence on the weak minded so I doubt a Jedi could fall under a mind trick, unless the Sith mind trick is stronger.did palpatine use the mind trick on anakin when anakin found out he was the sith lord? it appeared so.
1. How could it come up that Palpatine kill Padme? The idea is that I picked up was that she died because of her broken heart, "she lost all will to live" after she had seen what Anakin had become.if palpatine killed padme why would he have waited for the twins to be born? These two kinda caused a lot of trouble for him later down the track...
He did, did he? That's some great foreseeing there, given that the Rebel fleet didn't get destroyed, nor did the Rebel forces .Anxiety said:2. Palpatine also foresaw that the rebel fleet would be destroyed as well as the Rebel forces on Endor's moon. If somehow he did kill her he probably saw it as a chance to gain another Sith apprentice.
If you go by the movie novelization, Obi-Wan and Anakin are known through out the galaxy as the "poster children" for the Jedi Order. When something needs to be done right, the Council or the Republic calls them in to do it.Shipgate said:Some parts I didn't like and maybe it was just because I didn't understand them. So maybe someone could clarify things for me. How come in the beginning of the movie Anakin and Obi Wan get set up to rescue Palpatine from that ship?
Palpatine was given the gift of foresight when he became a Force user. He knew what was going to happen to a certain extent.Shipgate said:Why would Palpatine risk his and Anakin's life for the sake of trying to turn Anakin to the dark side? Cause if that was his elaborate scheme, it seems like too many things could've easily gone wrong.
Don't forget that they didn't make the (silly) connection that Palpatine was Darth Sidious. The Trade Federation never really got screwed out of much besides maybe some droid batallions and a couple of ships though. Think of it this way - they tried to blockade a planet's trade route illegally and got out of going to prison?Shipgate said:I also just don't get why the trade federation keep allying themselves with Palpatine when they seem to get screwed by him over and over. Or why they keep building their crappy droid army that is always easily defeated.
Really? IHMO all that luring and hints towards the dark side were done quite well, but the turning itself was as cheap as it could be.Shipgate said:The thing I thought was best done about it was Anakin's turn to the dark side. It wasn't too contrived like I thought it might be. I thought it was well paced and convincing enough.
Palpatine could see the future to a certain degree so he probably knew. Also he maybe needed a test if Anakin would obey him as master.Shipgate said:Why would Palpatine risk his and Anakin's life for the sake of trying to turn Anakin to the dark side? Cause if that was his elaborate scheme, it seems like too many things could've easily gone wrong.
And Palpatine seemed to do a good enough job tempting Anakin just by telling him later about the dark side. So I just didn't get that whole part and I hope someone can explain that to me.
If you look at human history people were often enough quite eager to willingly give up a democracy in order to follow some dictator. The scene wasn't any more weird then people applauding Hitler before World War 2.Shipgate said:Another thing that bothered me was how after Mace almost killed Palpatine and he's all "pruny" looking. There is that part where he addresses the Senate and tells everyone how he's going to get rid of the Republic and start a new Empire. How come seemingly everyone in the whole room applauds that? Cause he looked pretty evil and scary the way he was shaking his fists in the air boasting about a new Empire you would think some of these representatives of their homeworlds might look around and be like, "This is kind of weird..." So I just didn't get why every single alien there unanimously agree with his dictatoresque speech.
