Why did Lucas even bother giving Sheev a lightsaber? He always seemed to be above such tools when this nigga could just shoot lightning.
When will this Sheev and Yoda shouldn't use lightsabers meme end?
I wish they had done the same to Yoda, i admit watching him with a lightsaber was a little ridiculous to me,it makes more sense that he would use the force as his weapon against Sidious and Dooku.
Wouldn't this scene have been so much better if Palpatine just stood up and used the force instead of pulling out a lightsaber? Like imagine if Sheev had made a force implosion in the center of the room and the Jedi were all flung against the walls or something. And you can see even Mace struggling against the sheer power that Sheev has in his domination of the force. Wouldn't that be better than yet another lightsaber fight?
The force isn't a fucking weapon to the Jedi you casual
He wasn't supposed to be much stronger than Dindu
>Le Jedi are wizards meme
Fuck off you nothing about the force or Star Wars.
Also going from "Sheev casted lightning on Luke in Episode VI" to "Sheev has the cast lightning ability for decades and is his primary force attack, costs 12 mana to cast" is incredibly unimaginative
because he's a sithlord, not a magician to entertain you?
I understand people equate the force to magic but magic has a much deeper scope in terms of what it can be used for..
The Force even if you add Swtor shit is still very limited in comparison
Fuck off with your fanfiction tier shit sheevekiddies
No it fucking isn't. Merlin wasn't a knight who evolved into a wizard. Besides the GOAT wizard Gandalf used a sword all the damn time.
This entire thread proves just how stupid and pathetic this board is. None of you fags care about Star Wars at all. All you stupid pieces of shit care for are le dank memes and BBC.
Just because it got turned into a video game power system after the OT doesn't mean it was all the force could be, now that based JJ rebooted the series disregarding the prequels we can have a much more mystical and dynamic Force
Except until the Prequels both Sheev and Yoda were presented both as above using light sabers and both didn't think too highly of them.
> None of you fags care about Star Wars at all.
Hahahah I think I'll live Jojo fag
No they weren't. They didn't have the tech of know how to make a puppet fight with a lightsaber. Sheev is a sith one who uses the force for attack and wields it as a weapon. Why would he wield his lightsaber against a young fool who had no idea how to wield one.
>waaaahhhhhh I hate the prequels and love tiny jewish cock wahhhhh
What are you arguing. That they regarded the light saber as anything more than a sword? Because Yoda certainly didn't train Luke with the fucking thing, and Sheev very openly mocks the Jedi weapon.
Thats why its stupid they fucking use them later. Its fucking stupid. Who wanted to see Yoda jump around like an anime cartoon character with a sword??
Watching this >>64681678 fanboy get buttblasted is fun as hell.
TFA was good. Sheev and Yoda should have never used lightsabers, looked like something out of a cartoon. The prequels were bad.
Didn't have enough time obviously. Luke needed to learn the force first.
>tfa was good
I can't stop laughing
He's a hypocritical lying piece of shit what do you expect?
Kasdan: The Force was available to anyone who could hook into it?
Lucas: Yes, everybody can do it.
Kasdan: Not just the Jedi?
Lucas: It’s just the Jedi who take the time to do it.
Marquand: They use it as a technique.
Lucas: Like yoga. If you want to take the time to do it, you can do it; but the ones that really want to do it are the ones who are into that kind of thing. Also like karate. Also another misconception is that Yoda teaches Jedi, but he is like a guru; he doesn’t go out and fight anybody.
Kasdan: A Jedi Master is a Jedi isn’t he?
Lucas: Well, he is a teacher, not a real Jedi. Understand that?
Kasdan: I understand what you’re saying, but I can’t believe it; I am in shock.
Lucas: It’s true, absolutely true, not that it makes any difference to the story.
Kasdan: You mean he wouldn’t be any good in a fight?
Lucas: Not with Darth Vader he wouldn’t.
Kasdan: I accept it, but I don’t like it.
Why did he even bother with shoulderpads?
sheev having a disdain for lightsabers doesn't mean he never uses one
it's very sheev-like for him to kill you with a weapon he doesn't even use often and disdains just to show you how much more powerful he is over you
When has Sheev ever shown to be hypocritical? Do you think that Empire at all alluded to Yoda training Luke with the light saber or are you assuming that because if the prequels?
Speculation, he seemed very content in the OT to let Vadar handle heavy lifting and when push came to shove he didn't sheev spin at luke but instead electrocuted him with his force energy. I mean thats more Sheev like, to use powers to prolong someone's death than to use a fucking light saber to duel them what the fuck.
He looks so goddamn stupid dressed as the emperor swinging a light saber around fighting a jumping tiny Yoda. Its fucking Tex Avery
>I-it was a mistake!! Yoda was supposed to be an extremely agile ninja! Then degrade into a hobbling hermit over the next 30 years.
Vader was a Sith lord. But the Sith are never mentioned in the OT. Vader is just considered a dark jedi at the time, the PT made everyone use lightsabers and have spinny dance fights.
Sheev was the unquestioned emperor for 20+ years at the time of RoTJ. No one in the galaxy rivaled him in both Political and literal power. I don't expect him to still bother with lightsabers since he's got his Galactic Empire and Vader to do the heavy work for him. And if it still comes down to it, he can use Force Lightning.
It's the same reason I don't expect multimillionaires to do their own laundry once they've made it big. I'm sure they know how, but they've got other people to do that shit for them.
>sheev literally calls lighrsabers the tool of the jedi and shits on it
> >Sheev shoots Mace with lightning
>Mace deflects it
WOW SHOULD HE HAVE A LIGHTSABER TO DEFEND HIMSELF IN THIS SITUATION HUH YOU GUYS WOULD IT MAKE SENSE THAT THIS SITH LORD OBSESSED WITH KILLING JEDI KNOW THE INS AND OUTS OF JEDI FIGHTING TECHNIQUES HUH GEE THIS LIGHTSABER CRYSTALS ARE APPARENTLY LIKE TIES TO THE FORCE OR SOMETHING THATS WEIRD BUT WELL WHATEVER THE JEDI CLAIMED THEM FIRST SO THAT MEANS THAT SITH CANT USE THE GLOWLY STICKS AWWW TOO BAD BUT FIRSTIES ARE FIRSTIES
YOU KNOW YODA WAS A REAL FUCKING IDIOT INSTEAD OF SAYING "DONT UNDERESTIMATE THE EMPERORS POWERS" HE SHOULDA SAID "HEY LUKE WHATEVER YOU DONT THROW YOUR LIGHTSABER ON THE GROUND BECAUSE LIGHTSABERS DEFLECT A SITH LORDS ONE MANNER OF ATTACK, IN FACT I WOULD GO SO FAR AS TO CALL IT A JEDIS WEAPON SINCE IT IS SO EFFECTIVE FOR A PEACELOVING DEFENSE AND KNOWLEDGE JEDI TO DEFEND HIMSELF AGAINST A LIGHTNING THROWING SITH LORD SINCE APPARENTLY WE ARE PRETTY IMMUNE TO FORCE CHOKES I GUESS PLUS FROM A MORE CIVILIZED AGE THESE WEAPONS ARE BEING HMMMM"
Nothing was wrong with him having a lightsaber as a Sith Lord has to be a little of everything, there are only two, no room to specialize, Yoda shouldn't have been a fighter though.
I think that scene would have been much better if Sheev had his lines from the book, did a saber throw instead of a spin to kill one, then leaped to grab his blade and stab another before they could react. He then could have knocked back Windu with a push and killed Kit, followed by some Sheevy dialogue about how long he has waited to kill Windu.
He was on the defense against Windu the whole time as he should have been because the point of that encounter for him was to create a crisis for Anakin to react to, if Anakin arrived and it was just him and 4 dead Jedi masters Anakin might have just attacked Sheev.
The Yoda v. Sheev battle should have been almost all force though, I would have loved to watch Yoda, having never lifted a blade in the movie, block Sheev's blade with his cane and then disarm him as they rose into the senate chamber. It would have said so much seeing Yoda forsake the blade and still be able to defend himself with a simple cane of wood.
But nah, more glowsticks = better movie for fanboys.
If Dark side is so unnatural and gay, how come dark side users are more powerful? Why do midichlorians support assholes?
Seven fucking movies and its still absolutely unexplained what exactly makes dark side bad, other than the fact that it gives you potentially amazing and helpful abilities like ressurrection
the point is to be as emotionally unnattatched as possible, who would you rather have a fucking nuke, an emotional angsty teenage boy or a fucking monk, its not rocket science why the jedi try to sever themselves from reasons to make bad decisions
heev was making fun of the Jedi you idiot
He calls it a Jedi weapon but then proceeds to shit all over trained Jedi masters with it before blasting them with lightning, which Jedi dont have at all.
Hes showing that the Sith are better than them at their own shit and shit theyve never heard of before. By the OT time, the Jedi are dead so he has no reason to use them anymore
Dont ever doubt based Sheev
The dark side is basically atheism, materialism and moral relativism. The idea is that dark side users tend to draw on the power of the force to further their own goals and ignored the will of the force. To Sheev, the force was a means to an end.
Lightsiders tended to regard the force as having a will of its own, they're theists, spiritualists and moral absolutists. There is a will of the force and to disobey it is to invite destruction. To Yoda, the force was an end in itself.
Lucas intentionally doesn't make it clear which philosophy is correct. For example, the spontaneous generation of the chosen one is either Sith manipulation generating life, or the will of the force reacting in opposition to the Sith manipulation of the force. In old EU's Darth Plagueis book, Sheev and Plaguey both don't know the clear answer to what caused the chosen one to emerge other than it was related to what they had done.
Didn't Sheev lose his saber during the Windu fight? I distinctly recall it getting knocked into the abyss of the city.
Also I watched HAL9000's re-edits of the prequels and so many of the issues are fixed. They actually became great movies.
Sheev wielding a saber and fighting/spinning around like everyone else came off as both anticlimactic and strange.
Sheev seemed to be above 'jedi weapons' in the OT, and unlike Vader he was never a Jedi and therefore had no reason to use a saber. It makes sense for Vader to use a 'dark' Jedi weapon, but Sheev? That just seemed forced.
This was mentioned by Plagueis in that Palpatine novel that a master of the dark side would have no need for lightsabers, but that the Sith continue to use them to mock the Jedi.
>Sheev was wearing loafers when Luke & Vader showed up
I liked the idea of Siths not even bothering with Lightsabers and Vader just had one because he was taught to use it, and was nostalgic for it.
But I guess all those shitty video games would have been a lot more boring if only Jedis and sabers, and sith were just space wizards.
