    Right, after his son Luke proselyted him.
    Something which wasn't foresee or planed by Sidious.

    Vader's hate sustained him until Palpatine and the medical crew arrived.

    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.

    So Palpatine put his hand over Vader is just because he cares?

    Something more like a twisted "father/son" affection, much like they demonstrated previously in the film.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    He did, did he? That's some great foreseeing there, given that the Rebel fleet didn't get destroyed, nor did the Rebel forces :p.

    That's what I mean - as it turned out, the fleet was so lost, it managed to take out the second Death Star, while Luke's friends were so dead, they managed to take down the shield generator. So, not exactly the best job ever, as far as seeing the future goes.

    I hope this thread isn't too old to be responding to but I just saw Episode 3 for my first time today and I thought I'd comment on my impressions of it.

    First of all, like most people say, I do think it was the best of the first three episodes. 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. Second, I don't know if it was just the nostalgia of seeing signs of what you saw in episode 4 begin to surface, but some parts I got really emotional over. I actually thought the part where Palpatine rescues Anakin from that lava planet was pretty gut wrenching. He really seemed to care about him as a person and not just because of Anakin's power. Very well done there as well as the development of many other relationships between the characters. With the exception of course of Anakin and Padme. It really made me squirm in my chair to watch those two interact and pretend to be in love. I really never felt like those two actors had any chemistry on screen and the harder they tried just the more awkward it felt.

    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? Cause if it was just to hope that Anakin should arrive and rescue him and exact his revene upon Dooku and be more seduced by the dark side, then that just seems like a pretty huge risk to take. Cause when you think abou it, Palpatine, Anakin, and Obi Wan barely make it out of there alive. Just like when the elevator was about to smash them and they barely escape. 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.

    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.

    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.

    Some other notable scenes in the movie that I particularly enjoyed was when the clone army started exterminating the Jedi. I was also glad they didn't soften Anakin up when he had the choice to kill those "younglings". I was just glad Lucas didn't hold back when it came to him turning to the dark side. R2D2 peeing on those battle droids and setting them on fire was pretty nice. I also really liked the look of those aliens (I don't remember what they were called or what planet it was) that had the smooth bald heads and were green. They kind of reminded me of the Remens from Star Trek: Nemesis.

    Overall I really enjoyed the movie and was glad I got to see it while it was still in theaters. And I really wonder what's next for Star Wars.

    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.

    Palpatine was given the gift of foresight when he became a Force user. He knew what was going to happen to a certain extent.

    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?

    STAR WARS: EPISODE III - REVENGE OF THE SITH: THE ABRIDGED
    SCRIPT™

    By Rod Hilton



    FADE IN:

    EXT. SPACE

    Two NOT-QUITE-TIE-FIGHTERS fly and zoom around, the camera
    chasing wildly behind them in a way that only computer
    generated scenes can show. We see that they have EWAN
    MCGREGOR and HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN in them.

    EWAN MCGREGOR
    I can hardly tell who is shooting
    who in this dizzying space battle
    sequence!

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    Yeah, it's pretty confusing.

    EWAN MCGREGOR
    No, I mean literally dizzying!
    (vomits)

    They fly toward CHRISTOPHER LEE'S SHIP so they can rescue
    SUPREME CHANCELLOR IAN MCDIARMID.

    EWAN MCGREGOR
    Oh no, the hangar has shields up!

    HAYDEN shoots something next to the shield and they
    deactivate.

    EWAN MCGREGOR
    The thing that powers the shield is
    on the outside of the ship?

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    Yeah, it's pretty stupid. It's like
    a life support system being in a box
    on someone's chest.

    They land inside the ship and TAKE SOME DROIDS TO SCHOOL.

    EWAN MCGREGOR
    I sure am enjoying the feeling of
    brotherly camaraderie between us.

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    Yeah, it is nice. Seems like the
    sort of thing that should have been
    in the last film. Oh well, at least
    there were scenes of me rolling
    around in the grass.

    They make their way toward CHRISTOPHER LEE and IAN
    MCDIARMID, using the help of R2D2, who uses his rockets to
    fly again, in spite of everyone trying so hard to forget
    that ever happened. They find IAN.

    IAN MCDIARMID
    Help me! I am trapped in a
    comfortable chair overlooking all of
    the destruction I have wrought!

    Suddenly, CHRISTOPHER LEE enters.

    CHRISTOPHER LEE
    I have been waiting a long time for
    a rematch. Now, you will have to
    face a stunt double with my face
    pasted on!

    They DUEL. CHRISTOPHER LEE easily dispatches EWAN. HAYDEN
    fights him and eventually KILLS him.

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    (furrowing his brow)
    Wow, that was it for Christopher
    Lee, huh? Seems almost pointless to
    have killed Darth Maul and
    introduced him in the first place.

    HAYDEN, EWAN, and IAN all begin to leave, but they are
    CAPTURED and brought before GENERAL GREVIOUS, A ROBOTIC
    SKELETON.

    GENERAL GREVIOUS
    (coughing)
    I will now add your lightsabers to
    my collection of Star Wars
    memorabilia.

    He places them inside a VINTAGE 1970'S STAR WARS LUNCH BOX
    WITH THERMOS NO RESERVE!!

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    Artoo, freak the hell out
    obnoxiously!

    He DOES. This distracts everyone long enough for EWAN to get
    his LIGHTSABER back. There is a short battle in which an
    OPPORTUNITY TO SHOW THAT GREVIOUS IS AS BADASS AS WE'RE
    SUPPOSED TO BELIEVE is missed.

    GENERAL GREVIOUS
    (coughing and wheezing)
    I will run like a coward, further
    failing to illustrate how
    intimidating my character is meant
    to be!

    HAYDEN crashes the ship to the ground and SAVES EVERYONE.
    There is MILD CELEBRATION followed by a cameo by NATALIE
    PORTMAN, the linchpin of HAYDEN'S turn to the dark side.

    NATALIE PORTMAN
    (yawning)
    Hayden, I'm pregnant.

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    (furrowing his brow)
    How can you be sure?

    NATALIE PORTMAN
    Because in a minute or two I'll
    actually be showing. Really.

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    You know, I love you with all the
    love one can love a lover with.

    NATALIE PORTMAN
    Wow, that almost tops your 'wish'
    line from the last movie. Tell me
    again on the balcony while I brush
    my hair and look vaguely hideous.

    We cut to HAYDEN having a nightmare about NATALIE giving
    birth to a GUNGAN. NATALIE is visibly pregnant now in a
    single shot, the only indicator at all that any time has
    passed since the previous scene. Nothing happens for a
    while, and eventually HAYDEN seeks the advice of IAN
    MCDIARMID.

    INT. SOME WEIRD OPERA THING

    IAN MCDIARMID
    You seem worried about Natalie
    dying. Also, you're confused about
    being a Jedi.

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    (furrowing his brow)
    They don't want me to fuck Natalie
    Portman. That's insanity. Did you
    see her in Closer? Holy fuck.

    IAN MCDIARMID
    Did you know that those who embrace
    the Dark Side have a lot of powers
    that Jedi do not? For example, they
    can influence that midichlorian
    bullshit to create life.

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    Create life? Wait, are you implying
    that my supposed virgin birth was--

    IAN MCDIARMID
    And they can stop others from
    dying.

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    Stop others? Like, if someone force
    chokes them and they start to die
    because of it hours later?

    IAN MCDIARMID
    Yup.

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    That's distracting enough that I'll
    not bother following up on the other
    thing you said.

    Meanwhile...

    EXT. KASHYYK

    YODA leads an army of WOOKIEES to fight against DROIDS. The
    scene is utterly superfluous and present solely to have a
    scene containing WOOKIEES. It also serves to make the STAR
    WARS UNIVERSE seem even smaller with more cameos by
    characters from the original trilogy.

    CHEWBACCA
    Nyaaarrrgghh.

    EXT. UTAPAU

    EWAN MCGREGOR finds out that GENERAL GREVIOUS is hiding on
    UTAPAU. He jumps on a RIDICULOUSLY LOUD AND ANNOYING IGUANA.

    IGUANA
    Shriek! Shriek!

    The IGUANA'S sounds are ear-piercing and awful, making the
    AUDIENCE MISERABLE during any scene containing it. EWAN
    rides it up to GENERAL GREVIOUS and challenges him.

    EWAN MCGREGOR
    I will attempt to destroy you now,
    without waiting for my support
    troops to arrive.

    GENERAL GREVIOUS
    (coughing)
    Are you serious? You've lost
    literally every single duel you've
    been a part of except for the one
    with Darth Maul. Hayden constantly
    mentions how many times he has saved
    you. What have you done in the
    entire prequel trilogy so far to
    prove that you're actually a decent
    fighter?

    EWAN MCGREGOR
    Hey, I sorta beat Jango Fett. So,
    what's with the coughing, do droids
    get colds or something?

    GENERAL GREVIOUS
    (wheezing)
    Oh no, see, I'm a cyborg, not a
    droid. Check it out, I have an
    actual beating heart.

    EWAN shoots it and GREVIOUS'S HEAD explodes in a ball of
    fire.

    EWAN MCGREGOR
    That made sense.

    INT. CORUSCANT

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN runs up to SAMUEL L. MOTHERFUCKING
    JACKSON

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    Samuel, I rented the original Star
    Wars trilogy from Blockbuster. I'm
    pretty sure Ian McDiarmid is a Sith
    Lord.

    SAMUEL L. MOTHERFUCKING JACKSON
    Then it's time to get medieval on
    some ass.

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    Let me come with you.

    SAMUEL L. MOTHERFUCKING JACKSON
    No, go your room.

    SAMUEL L. MOTHERFUCKING JACKSON and some OTHER JEDI go to
    see IAN. Meanwhile HAYDEN stares out the window of the JEDI
    TEMPLE, toward NATALIE PORTMAN'S APARTMENT. Though he says
    nothing, we can see that he is conflicted, trying to decide
    between his commitment to the Jedi order and his love for
    his wife. NATALIE, at the same time, gazes toward the Jedi
    Temple, wondering what will happen to her husband.

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    How pathetic is it that the msot
    well-acted scene between us is the
    one in which we are in separate
    buildings and have no lines?

    SAMUEL L. MOTHERFUCKING JACKSON enters IAN MCDIARMID'S
    CHAMBER.

    SAMUEL L. MOTHERFUCKING JACKSON
    Ian, you're under arrest for being
    a manipulative motherfucker.

    IAN MCDIARMID
    I got a threshold, Jedi. I got a
    threshold for the abuse I'll take.
    And right now I'm a race car and you
    got me in the red. I'm just saying
    that it's fuckin' dangerous to have
    a racecar in the fuckin' red. It
    could blow.

    SAMUEL L. MOTHERFUCKING JACKSON
    Oh, you're gettin' ready to blow?

    IAN MCDIARMID
    I could blow.

    SAMUEL L. MOTHERFUCKING JACKSON
    Well I'm a mushroom-cloud-layin'
    motherfucker, motherfucker! Every
    time my fingers touch my lightsaber
    I'm Superfly TNT. I'm the Guns of
    Navarone.

    Suddenly, IAN pulls out his LIGHTSABER. He moves toward the
    JEDI, pulls his arm back, aims at a Jedi, kills him, pulls
    his blade out, moves toward another, and slowly kills him
    too, all while SAMUEL L. MOTHERFUCKING JACKSON twirls his
    lightsaber around pointlessly behind them. Once only SAMUEL
    is left, they DUEL. IAN makes silly faces and is eventually
    beaten.

    SAMUEL L. MOTHERFUCKING JACKSON
    Let me read to you from the book of
    Ezekiel for a--

    Suddenly, IAN unleashes some force lightning on SAMUEL,
    which he absorbs into his lightsaber and somehow pushes back
    onto IAN, which causes him to grow old, apprently. Despite
    this, IAN refuses to stop doing it.

    IAN MCDIARMID
    Must... bridge... gap... to...
    original... trilogy...

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN arrives.

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    Wow, you really can absorb force
    lightning with a lightsaber. Someone
    really, really needs to tell Luke
    that. Anyway, Ian, I think Samuel is
    about to rip you a new one, mind
    telling me how to save Natalie real
    quick?

    SAMUEL L. MOTHERFUCKING JACKSON
    Fuck that, I'm killing this geezer
    now.

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    You can't. He must stand trial.
    Killing him now would be.. er, well
    it would be exactly the same as when
    I killed Christoper Lee in the
    beginning of the movie.

    SAMUEL L. MOTHERFUCKING JACKSON
    You're actually right, but I'm
    going to kill him anyway.

    HAYDEN stops him and IAN throws him out the window, a fall
    which no PARTIALLY ELECTROCUTED JEDI CAPABLE OF
    SUPER-JUMPING could possibly survive.

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    What have I done?
    (pause)
    I submit myself to your will, Ian.

    IAN MCDIARMID
    That was fast. Well, now that you
    have taken a single, somewhat
    justifiable step toward the Dark
    Side, there's no turning back. Go
    kill all of the Jedi in the temple,
    including the children.

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    Right, go kill the children. Got it.

    IAN MCDIARMID
    Well, kill everyone, not just--

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    (leaving)
    On my way to kill all of the
    children now! Whee!

    He DOES. The CLONE TROOPERS kill most of the adult Jedi,
    while the challenging task of murdering children can only be
    undertaken by the DARK LORD OF THE SITH.

    IAN MCDIARMID appears in a HOLOGRAPH to one of the CLONE
    TROOPERS.

    IAN MCDIARMID
    Execute order 66.

    CLONE TROOPER
    Kill all shrieking CGI creatures.
    (to his troops)
    Alright men, shoot down the giant
    Iguana.

    IAN MCDIARMID
    Oh, and order 67.

    CLONE TROOPER
    Jedi, too. Got it.

    They shoot at EWAN, who falls into the water.

    CLONE TROOPER
    He's dead. Nobody could have
    survived that fall. Except a Jedi,
    of course.

    EWAN MCGREGOR
    Jesus, they've become really
    stupid. This movie really DOES
    bridge the gap between the original
    trilogy and the prequel trilogy.

    EXT. MYGEETO

    Suddenly, all of the clone troopers turn against
    KI-ADI-MUNDI and shoot him.

    KI-ADI-MUNDI
    Oh no, I'm being shot by fewer
    weapons than at the end of Attack of
    the Clones! Somehow, this overpowers
    me!
    (dies)

    CLONE TROOPERS kill all remaining JEDI all over the galaxy,
    including the BLUE HOTTIE. Despite their supernatural senses
    and a lifetime of training in battle skills, they all
    succumb to the TROOPERS. Meanwhile, HAYDEN travels to
    MUSTAFAR to kill all of the separatists. JAR JAR, sadly, is
    not one of them.

    INT. NATALIE PORTMAN'S APARTMENT

    EWAN arrives to talk to NATALIE.

    EWAN MCGREGOR
    Natalie, do you know where Hayden
    is? I just saw some security
    recordings of the Jedi temple, and
    apparently also of Ian McDiarmid's
    chamber afterwards. Or beforehand.
    Or an alternate universe, perhaps.
    Anyway, he was killing children!

    NATALIE PORTMAN
    Hayden? No! I refuse to entertain
    this notion and will dismiss your
    concerns outright. Hayden would
    never kill children!
    (pause)
    Oh, wait, unless they were
    sandpeople. Then he would kill them.
    But he's definitely not a murderer
    otherwise.

    EWAN stows away on NATALIE'S SHIP as she FLIES to MUSTAFAR.

    EXT. MUSTAFAR

    NATALIE'S SHIP lands and she runs to HAYDEN.

    NATALIE PORTMAN
    Hayden! I heard you've gone toward
    the dark side! It's not true, is it?
    Why are your eyes all red?

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    (furrowing his brow)
    You brought Ewan, didn't you? To
    actually act well and make me look
    wooden and awful!

    NATALIE PORTMAN
    Of course not! I'm even worse than
    you in this movie, why would I bring
    someone capable of acting well here?

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    (comically)
    Liar!

    He chokes her.

    NATALIE PORTMAN
    (collapsing)
    Urk!

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    Oh baby, I'm sorry. I only force
    choke you because I love you. Come
    back to me baby.

    EWAN MCGREGOR
    Hayden! What the hell, your whole
    reason for turning was to save her.
    That was completely stupid.

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    Bah, the Jedi are stupider! They
    didn't know I was married to Natalie
    despite the fact that we live
    together, which Ian figured out in
    seconds. They didn't know Ian was a
    Sith. They asked me to get close to
    him, knowing full well I am confused
    and that he's manipulative. God, the
    assassin from Attack of the Clones
    allegedly couldn't be sent by
    Christopher Lee because "it's not in
    his character." Face it, it's a
    miracle the Jedi survived this long.

    EWAN MCGREGOR
    Anti-Jedite!

    They DUEL. Then they DUEL some more. Afterwards, they do
    some more DUELLING. Then there's another DUEL, a little
    DUELLING, and finally a DUEL.

    EWAN MCGREGOR
    It's over, Hayden. I've got the high
    ground, just like Darth Maul did in
    Episode 1 right before I killed him
    successfully. Ignoring that, if you
    jump over to me, I will cut your
    shit off.

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    You underestimate my power to
    decide not to jump to the low ground
    in front of you where I will be able
    to safely continue duelling, but to
    instead try to jump all the way over
    you and get my shit cut off!

    He JUMPS and gets his SHIT cut RIGHT THE FUCK OFF. Then he
    is COMPLETELY BURNED.

    HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    Motherfucker!

    EWAN MCGREGOR
    I'm leaving, Hayden! Even though
    you are writhing in agony, I won't
    do the humane thing and put you out
    of your misery. You're the dick,
    though.

    He leaves. IAN arrives shortly after.

    IAN MCDIARMID
    Take him back to Coruscant so we
    can put him in the big black life
    support suit that I just so happen
    to have laying around for just such
    an occasion.

    They DO.

    INT. POLIS MASSA HOSPITAL ROOM

    A CGI MEDICAL DROID is delivering NATALIE'S CHILDREN.
    Another CGI DROID talks to EWAN and JIMMY SMITS.

    JIMMY SMITS
    Jesus, not every scene needs some
    digital character in them. She's
    giving birth, can't we leave at
    least a FEW frames of the film free
    from CGI bullshit? Hell, Ewan chould
    have delivered the twins, that would
    be more dramatic.

    DIRECTOR GEORGE LUCAS
    More what?

    MEDICAL DROID
    She's dying. She has given up the
    will to live.

    EWAN MCGREGOR
    Given up the will to live? She does
    know she has two brand new babies to
    live for, doesn't she?

    NATALIE has her twins, the order of which creates a
    completely unnecessary continuity error for no reason other
    than the fact that DIRECTOR GEORGE LUCAS must really enjoy
    watching his obsessive fans rationalize obvious flaws. She
    DIES.

    INT. ALDERAAN CRUISER

    YODA, EWAN, and JIMMY discuss what to do with A NEW HOPE.

    JIMMY SMITS
    I will take the girl. Hey Ewan, if
    you know about Leia, how come you
    refer to Luke as your last hope in
    Empire Strikes Back?

    EWAN MCGREGOR
    I know about Leia, but Alec Guiness
    doesn't.

    YODA
    Oh, that reminds me! Speaking of
    justifying obvious dialogue blunders
    created by the fact that George
    Lucas didn't actually have all six
    films firmly in his mind when he was
    making any given one, I need to
    train you how to be a force ghost so
    you can explain to Luke how Vader
    killed his father.

    EWAN MCGREGOR
    Where should we keep him in the
    mean time?

    YODA
    Take him to his family on Tatooine.

    EWAN MCGREGOR
    Wait, really? You mean, to hide him
    from Hayden and Ian, we're going to
    allow him to keep the last name
    Skywalker, bring him to Hayden's
    birth planet, and put him in the
    care of his actual relatives? It
    would take like an hour of research
    to track him down if the Empire
    wanted him.

    YODA
    Well, go watch over him from really
    far away to make sure he's safe.

    INT. CORUSCANT IMPERIAL REHAB CENTER

    DARTH HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN, in full suit, is situated
    upright.

    DARTH HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    Where's Natalie Portman? Suddenly I
    am worried about her again.

    IAN MCDIARMID
    It seems that in your overacting,
    you killed her.

    DARTH HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    Wow, you'd think that would really
    make me see the error of the Dark
    Side, realize the Jedi were right
    all along, and kill you right now.
    Ah well.

    IAN MCDIARMID
    So, now that the movie is over,
    would you say that the prequel
    trilogy was worth making?

    DARTH HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
    Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

    END

    Hilarious stuff and really brings up the worst out of the movie, eventhough it was the best of the new trilogy.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    But weren't people applauding Hitler because they were starving and their pride was hurt and they were willing to accept anyone who would get them back to the top?

    In the Republic, it seemed all those different aliens were for the most part doing pretty well for themselves. So it seems to me like some could afford to disagree with the Chancellor just a bit and not all of them cheer. Like the State of the Union address. How when the president says stuff, some people stand up and applaud, others simply do not.

    And I would think with how revered and respected the Jedi were that not everyone would immediately believe that a Jedi made an attempt on the Chancellors life. It seems that most people would be willing to follow a Jedi than a politician.

    The Senators didn't have much of a choice, given the Jedi Order was pretty much over by the time of that speech.

    The odd thing is how the Clone Troopers apparently were aware of the order to kill the Jedi, and the Jedi could not figure this out. It should be easy for the emperor to keep a secret, but not to all those clones.
