Why exactly did he shout it out loud like that? What was the point?
Well, for one, Sheev takes great delight in what he does. This is evidenced by his frequent maniacal laughter and shit eating grins. His plans had finally come to fruition and he loved it.
Second, the plans for a galactic Sith Empire didn't start with Poppa Palpy. They started a millenium prior with Darth Bane, and Sidious was the chosen Sith that would finally inherit and controlthe greatest and most dreadful power in the galaxy.
Third, Ian McDiarmid is a classical actor trained in the Shakespearean tradition, so as a Sith Lord, this sort of silly melodrama is his speciality.
>Said that line with eyes closed
>peeks open the side of the eye to look at anakin when mace starts talking
>sheeve says he is too weak to do anything
>anakin makes his decision
>sheeve immediately blasts the shit out of Dindu screaming about unlimited power
It was fairly clear to me he was fine, and was just manipulating anakin. The scream was to let Dindu know he failed, that a sith now controlled the entire galaxy, and there was no one left to stand up to him.
It was kicking dindu while he was down.
>shit eating grins
Literally the best part of the PT
He knew he had won. Decades of plotting in the shadows and he succeeded in turning Anakin. Wouldn't you be thrilled too? Just imagine being Sheev in that situation. Just imagine.
It would ackshuallly make him 200% more bad ass if that was the situation.
>I might be able to take Dindu, but I'm not sure I can in this situation, still, lil Ani is coming, and if he sees me spinning, he'll know I'm full of good tricks and help Dindu, I'll have to take a gamble so that we. can. have. peassssse
>Bane isn't Cannon
Tell me about Nick, why does why wear the mask?
Technically, the Darth Bane trilogy of novels and the related comics are not canon.
HOWEVER, Darth Bane and the Rule of Two, since they both appear in The Clone Wars, exist as part of Star Wars canon. I do recognize, however, that they will not ever again be mentioned in a Star Wars movie. But since the prequels are so severely lacking in subtext, they are made much more enjoyable and coherent with some knowledge of the Expanded Universe, hence the relevance of Darth Bane.
Address my other two points faget.
>shitty exposition can only mean one thing
I really don't entirely disagree with you. I absolutely love the story that the prequels tell, and the precedents it establishes, but I think it does it poorly.
I think it sets a great standard for world building, but that standard is only fully realied in the EU. Take Bane and the Rule of Two as an example. Bane, a powerful Sith, eradicates the entire Sith order in order to create a nefarious lineage based secret society that will utilize subterfuge over raw power in order to gain absolute power in the galaxy. I've seen the Rule of Two criticised as impractical, which I disagree with, but it undoubtedly gives great insight into Sheev's motivations and the nature of his background and his plans. But the prequels don't tell us anything about this. It gets a single measly mention from Yoda, which doesn't really explain anything.
So the prequels certainly do something to establish some great worldbuilding. Unfortunately, it is not realized very well in the films themselves.
You mean like the video game kind?
If I had seen “Revenge of the Sith” in real time, in a theatre upon its release, in 2005, I think that, at the moment when Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid), sizzling in the blue lightning that Mace Windu (Samuel L. Jackson) reflects back at him, cries out to Anakin (Hayden Christensen), “Power! Unlimited Power!,” I would have leaped out of my seat yelling with excitement. The entire movie is filled with an absolute splendor of the pulp sublime, and that moment is its very apogee.
I would say I'm sorry to have disappointed you, but

It's nothing violent except for maybe Star Wars Rebels.
Really, it is just a bunch of stuff that kids will not understand until they are much older.
