Piett reminds me a little bit like my old boss
If he evacuated and the Rebels actually did manage to destroy the Death Star, he'd be humiliated and lose any future command at best or be tortured and executed by the Emperor at worst, depending on how mad Sheev was.
If he evacuated and the Death Star still managed to destroy the base, he'd look like a coward and a moron.
Staying on and risking death was the only logical option
Cushing brought some much needed gravitas and acting chops to the movie. It's too bad he didn't become an iconic villain like Vader and Jabba the Hutt did, but I guess it's hard to stand out in pop culture as a sinister old British guy with no goofy costume or similar character gimmick
He ran the fucking show. Telling Vader to knock off choking that grunt... awesome.
I mean it was Peter Cushing so of course it was going to be a great performance.
Went down with his ship like a captain should, as well.
Amazing in Star Wars.
Because these fuckers haven't been invented yet in the Star Wars universe.
>"Hold your fire, there's no life-forms"
>tfw you could have stopped all this shit from happening if you weren't a cunt, saving your laser shots for the escape pods with people in them
>looking for the stolen plans was just a ruse by Vader so he could find his old buddy 3PO
asshole stormtroopers had to blow him up in ESB so he doesn't recognize it when they finally reunite
he wields them just like how general grievous wields lightsabers, splitting each arm in two so he can sign four supply requisitions simultaneously. It's the only way to keep a station as big as a moon adequately supplied
>tfw a prequel film about Tarkin will never be made
Yes, but it's not enough
I want the further adventures of best Imperial officer
The new Rouge One movie is about Tarkin though.
Try using google friend, there are more than one links
>Cushing is a pivotal plot line as he was the one to create Darth Vader and there’s a whole back story that will come out.
>as he was the one to create Darth Vader and there’s a whole back story that will come out.
U wot m8
The star wars radio drama implies he was going to stage a coup against the emperor, even his own officer's were pushing him to take control. Pretty intetesting but i get why it was cut from the movie for pacing issues
Also they're stealing the death star plans for the fucking ten billionth time. Granted all of the old plan thefts aren't canon now but Jesus fuck create a new plot device you fucking hacks.
Tarkin is the best Star Wars villain. I hate how the Sith completely stole the show, and the Empire reduced to just being Sith puppets. Tarkin has no magic powers, can't fight with a light saber, cant' do any silly flips. BUt he's so god damn cool.
A military commander with a giant death star.
My Lord, the fleet has moved out of lightspeed. ComScan has detected an energy field protecting an area of the sixth planet of the Hoth system. The field is strong enough to deflect any bombardment.
>immediately goes for the high ground
Holy fuck, the poetry is unlimited!
Most people that have seen the movies never read any of the books. Besides there were 8 fuckin million books, obviously they would cover a lot of ground. They made the old universe no longer canon so they didn't have to held down by it, which is apparently what you'd like to see.
Yeah imperials didnt become comedic until rotj
Tarkin was a badass, but got defeated at the last moment
Veers was a badass, he waltzed his walker into the rebel base without a sweat
