Evil is a point of view, anon. I'd imagine that for the average human life changed very little or maybe even got better under the Empire. Aliens got it worse, but who cares about aliens really? Republic era shows what happens when you treat those slimy three-eyed retards like they were our equals. Corruption and war everywhere. Sheev did nothing wrong.
>>64700070 Destroying Alderaan is as justifiable as bombing Dresden or nuking Hiroshima is.
Also we dont know how many millions of lives would crushing rebellion in its roots save.
Not to mention >there were probably members of an enemy group somewhere on that planet It was the planets' leadership. By your logic bombing Nazi Germany was unjustified because there were only few nazis in charge.
>>64700070 Its like if you discover the mayor of an isolated part of your country is supporting terrorism and have done it for years, using the resources of the region to fund them and supplying them with troops. Its perfectly justified
>>64700234 >Be citizen of New Republic >Your father died on Death Star >You believe in the ideas of the republic, but you see it degenerate into ineffective, corrupt, bureucratic mess with the society in decay >Day after day you hate the republic more and more >You finally realize that the bad guys won >You decide to leave to join the first order to avenge your father and fight for better galaxy There WILL be novel like this, right?
>>64700391 Well given Disney's new concept of EU (Everything is coherent, no more canon tiers, everything is as canon as movies are) i doubt we will reach the old EU levels of shitting out new novel every week.
But there already are some grey stories. I mean you got that romeo and juliet thing where one character fights for rebellion and the other for empire. For being described as young adult novel or whatever it's bretty good even in describing politics and shit.
However if they ever do something like >>64700348 the protagonist probably turns against the first order eventually because while making empire not seem that bad is not a big deal, the First Order nazi symbolism is a bit wee too heavy in order for them to be good guys.
>>64699665 >Destruction of Alderaan is the only thing that makes them evil. >And even that is justifiable given that Alderaan was birthpace of rebellion and also its' primary financial backer. They provided lot of equipment too. >it was a valid target.
Even Tarkin admits that Alderaan wasn't a military target and and that he blew it up for keks. Listen, I like to be an imperial apologist as much as the next guy, but at least get your facts straight.
>>64700746 And according to Tarkin's statement, he apparently didn't know that. Guy walks into a supermarket, shoots five random people. Turns out, those five people were ISIS and were going to blow up a building, but he really just wanted to kill some people. Is he a hero?
>>64701553 >Hey? I think ISIS has a base under this city. >Yeah? How do you know? >Well I don't, but like one of their top guys is from there, and we spotted some ISIS vehicles in the area a few times. >So we have no idea what their ties are to the local government, if any, and the majority of the people probably have nothing to do with ISIS, even if and I repeat IF they havea base under the city? >Pretty much. >Fuck it, drop a few hundred shells on them. Surplus has to go someplace
>>64701796 >They know that Alderaan, a powerful and wealthy planet, is fully supporting the Rebellion. >Yet the base they want to find, which they are satisfied with, the base that they consider to be the big hold out locations of the Rebellion, is some bunker on a jungle moon with a handful of starfighters. That is some prequel level lapse in logic.
