What's up with the dark side of the force? Apparently Mace Windu is borderline light/dark because he was able to use force grip and force crush.
So the light side is basically shit powers (telekenisis, healing, force yell, and ghost?) and the dark side is embracing powerful techniques that corrupt the person? Would that mean the force in general is a evil?
Considering that both the Jedi and the Sith were hated and feared by the common galactic resident, probably, yeah
We only see the Jedi as good because they ultimately want peace, but they're still willing to use underhanded means to get their way.
There are dark side and light side powers, some are overly cruel and require tons of dark side, others like force lightning are useful in combat, there is no other explanation why Dooku knew it and could combine it with telekinesis, dude was a Jedi master, he's not going to be getting trained much by sheev
SW is not realistic in a sense that the difference between force-sensitives and everyone else is much bigger than the difference between the Jedi and the Sith. The most likely thing to happen in the situation that the SW universe presents us with is that force users would form an elite class that would rule everyone else.
All force users have the exact ONE same power: manipulating force
The rest is just figuring out how to do it
There's the most basic shit like pushing, pulling lifting etc
Then there's a bit more imaginative stuff like crushing (applying force from multiple directions simultaneously) and choking (same as crushing except more targeted)
They're not fucking different "powers", just different ways of using the force
