Oh you mean like Count Dooku? You fucking asshat

Palpatine is the senate and the courts, so he had the authority to pronounce immediate executions. He said so himself and he has no reason to lie.

He felt guilty about killing Dooku and not letting him stand trial. He said so immediately after doing it.
>>
>>65097254
Do you know what probably would have made him feel better? Not murdering him in the first place
>>
>>65097222
it's sad. It's clear Lucas had some good ideas in ROTS,but they just weren't fleshed out fully.

Lucas wanted to portray the jedi as flawed and show how anikin was struggling with that, but he just didn't take the time to portray it properly.

so much wasted potential.
>>
>>65097310
>Characters aren't allowed to make mistakes!
>>
>>65097355

Idk they do come off as kinda clueless and they even admit that in Clones and Sith. At one point Mace says "our ability to use the Force has diminished". What isn't shown as well is how this is a result of their hypocrisy and arrogance.

Still, it doesn't stop plebs from talking about how stupid the Jedi seem as if it were a plot hole when it's clearly intentional.
>>
>>65097535
It may be intentional but Lucas did a poor job of showing it and ended up making everyone seem retarded instead of flawed and hypocritical
>>
>>65097771

You could already see how the Jedi were hypocritical by how they were sending Anakin to spy on the Chancellor.
>>
>>65097771
>He doesnt think Sheev makes perfect sense and falls for the "sith are evil so theyre obviously wrong" meme

Jesus. Name one time a Sith came off as retarded?

Why didn't Count Dooku rat out Palpatine?
>>
>>65097930
He did, but nobody believed him.
>>
>>65097930
Because you ride for your niggas and die for your niggas.

Dooku believed in the sith way, why make them go extinct?
>>
>>65097050
Note that Mace and Sheev are the only characters that have gold on their lightsabers.
>>
I always get confused with Episode II... was Dooku a good guy in the end?

Originally, it sounds like Dooku knew Palpatine was amazing power and realized the Republic sucked and honestly wanted peace and to separate from it. But the Republic was lied to by Palpatine, taht Dooku was the bad guy and thus Dooku is hunted down in a war and killed.

BUT, watch Episode III and even parts of II: Dooku was workign for Palpatine and probably knew he was the evil Sith Master. He knewingly helped cause this war, to help his master.

I prefer either: Dooku is totally good or confused or grey jedi OR he clearly workign for the Sith and their manipulations.
>>
>>65097050
Palpatine was not only someone he looked up to, but also had something he wanted, which was a way to save Padme.

Not long after he says something like "I need him!", so it was more what he wanted out of him at the time by prolonging his life.
>>
>>65098349
>clearly working for the sith

You mean Darth Tyranus was working for the sith!?

What are you trying to say? Sheev manipulated Dooku into being the scapegoat to start a war and raise a clone army. He knew it would give him power as Supreme Chancellor so he could implode the Jedi from within by restricting their rights and suffocatting them politically.
>>
>>65097050
Dooku could have saved himself and told them who the Sith Lord was, he killed himself
>>
>>65098492

Anakin would have killed them both.

No, I know, I just think Episode II would have been better if Dooku didn't just become another Sith Lord.

I don't want to shill but I did see a video series that says the same exact idea and I agree with it.
>>
>>65098541
They could have cloned Sheev and make a senate with a bunch of Sheev clones.
>>
>>65098604
What motivation would Dooku have then? Grey Force users arent canon.

Dooku saw the Jedi as corrupt and wanted to expose them. Sheev gave him a way and taught him how.
>>
>>65097050
>oh you mean like count dooku

thats the point he doesnt want another dooku, you could see he was torn over killing dooku when he did it and sheev is his father figure so he doesnt want to see that
>>
>>65098349

M8 he was a certified Sith Lord. He even had a Darth title, Darth Tyrannus. He was the faux leader of the Separatists. His mission was to start a civil war that would justify the creation of the clone army, and keep the Jedi occupied while Sheev expanded his control over the Republic (while at the same time causing the number of Jedi to dwindle significantly due to war casualties). The original plan was for the CIS to lose the Clone Wars, execute Order 66 and for Dooku and Sheev to take complete control of the Republic to create the Empire. Dooku was in on all that. What he didn't know was that Sheev really wanted Anakin as an apprentice because he was far more gifted with the Force, so when Sheev saw an opportunity to get rid of Dooku and turn Anakin to the dark side he took it.

Your second line is motivation enough, just Dooku should be against Palpatine.

>>65098705
I know all this as well, but in Episode II: Dooku TELLS OBI WAN there's a traitor. Why? You are all right, but there is almost a plot hole or a second plotline where Dooku says the Jedi have become corrupt, soemone is manipulating them, and then... well, as said he IS Sith
>>
>>65097868
I never understand that.

>>65098824
4chan cut out the rest

>as you said, he IS Sith
He truly did become Darth Tyrannus and is workign for Sheev before being betrayed

Shouldn't have gone that way. Greivous for enough
>>
>>65098836
The most hypocritical part was because Sheev was limiting them, not because they suspected him of being a sith LORD. Mace was literally just butt hurt because his Jedi militia was getting wrapped in red tape.
>>
>>65098824

I think that was more for the benefit of the audience, because you're right, it doesn't make much sense for him to tell Obi that. Idk, maybe he was trying to make Obi doubt which side he should fight for? Obi didn't know Dooku was a Sith Lord at that point after all, so maybe he wanted to create dissent and unrest among the Jedi. If some Jedi believed that they were being duped into working for a Sith Lord they might want to change sides and join the CIS.
>>
>>65098836

They sent him because he was the only Jedi that Sheev trusted. They just underestimated his loyalty to Sheev and overestimated his loyalty to the Jedi.
>>
>>65098976
Trick Obi Wan? Hm, that's probably quite likely the reason.

palpatine used his spooky sith powers to influence anakin into killing Dooku, also no one would ever know that a Jedi executed Dooku because Obi Wan was sleeping

Palpatine was easily stronger than Anakin, he could've just popped those shackles off and lightninged the fuck out of him

Was Sheev really to dangerous to be kept alive?

Did he ever in the 6 movies attack anyone that wasnt hostile to him first?

Luke?

Oh wait,

He literally attacks Yoda without ANY provocation, after specifying "you survived" indicating that he had planned for him to be killed in order 66.
which he also ordered unilaterally.

It wasn't the arms he was missing, it was the hands! Wo-hoah! Wa-hey! Noiven!

No, its literally just a different of religion.

In the novels, during the arrest of Sheev, sheev points this out saying something like "Is having a different point of view a crime? You may aswell arrest the entire senate"

Also, order 66
>>
>>65100471
>>65100486
Yeah. He only had purple cause Jackson wanted it purple. I saw the footage of him asking Lucas. Lol.

Also, he's supposedly really really powerful and is a grey Jedi. They didn't exactly display his power correctly in the movies.
>>
>>65100665
Did Sheev kill any of the jedi during Order 66, which happened AFTER the jedi tried to kill him.
>>
>>65100731
he ordered the death of them.
He is DIRECTLY responsible for many, many deaths.
That's how it goes with military. The individual isn't arrested for following orders, the guy who gave him the order is.
>>
>>65101062
And the Jedi put out a hit on Sheev first. He acted politically. They tried to kill him, he found them to dangerous to be kept alive. He was well within his rights.
>>
>>65100728
>and is a grey Jedi
he's not
>>
>>65101123
They didn't try to kill him though. They were going to arrest him, he attacked first

>>65101185
>HE MUST STAND TRIAL
>HES TO DANGEROUS TO BE KEPT ALIVE

Thats sure arresting him.

Its also motive to brandish a scheme to kill the jedi politically.
>>
>>65101315
The point is that at first they didn't want to kill him at all, he just attacked out of nowhere and killed three Jedi right away. Yes, Mace later wanted to kill him, but that was already after Sheev killed few Jedi.
>>
>>65101185
Also hes not wrong. It was Treason.

He said he would relinquish power when Grevious was killed. He even asks about Grevious, but they dont care. The jedi were literally arresting the Supreme Chancellor of the republic like they were in control.

Treason.
>>
>>65101395
But Jedi were like the police/peacekeeping force of the Republic. It wasn't a treason, if he'd be proven innocent they would let him go and apologize.

Except they had literally no evidence of his guilt.

You cant just go arresting whoever you want. They arent an authority figure, they had no jurisdiction on the Senate.

It would be similer to Arresting the Queen, in England. YOU'D be put on trial, even if you did have suspisions of something.

>>65101556
Look at that smile. He wouldn't hurt a fly.
>>
>>65101481
>>65101563
And the only real evidence they had was he was a Sith. A different religion. He did nothing wrong, it was Dooku starting the wars.

You cant arrest someone you THINK will do something wrong.
>>
>>65101563
It was a time of war and everyone knew there was a second Sith Lord hiding in the shadows. They also knew that there were always two Sith working together, master and an apprentice, which meant that whoever the second Sith was, he worked with Dooku which means he was evil. Also Dooku literally said that the second Sith lord is controlling the senate. Also Anakin literally said that Sheev told him he's a sith lord.
I'd say those are pretty good reasons to have people at least inspected.
>>
>>65101563
>they had no jurisdiction on the Senate.

That is why they intended to let the senate decide.

>>65100621
>No, its literally just a different of religion.

The sith are a political entity as well, and last time the sith were being overt things kinda sucked. And there were many, many republic-sith wars which were literally just about the sith trying to dominate everything. Being a sith is definitely a crime.
>>
>>65101670
>inspected

Theyve been inspecting him for awhile, violating HIS privacy. You're so focused on the "Sith are bad, Jedi are good" swill they spoonfeed you.

The Jedi are not a police force. They cant go around arresting whoever they want. You need to go through the Senate first.

The Senate democratically appointed Sheev Supreme Chancellor during war time, until General Grevious was destroyed.

The Jedi, having their rights restricted by the Senate were getting upset with Sheev. Anakin, who the Senate did not trust
>if youre right you will have gained my trust
Tells them he SUSPECTS Sheev is a sith lord. Windu immeditley goes to confront him, drawing his lightsaber almost immedietly.

Sheev, having done nothing wrong to be arrested for, Retaliates.

Stop thinking that being a sith is a crime. It isnt.
>>
>>65101798
>Sith-republic wars about sith trying to dominate everything

So beint Muslim should be a crime? Hello Trump.
>>
>>65101843
If literally every muslim was hell bent on dominion and made extensive use of slavery and super weapons, probably would be yes.
>>
>>65101800
Being sith probably wasn't a crime in the Republic, but we don't know that, it might have been considered what they did in the past, something like being a Nazi or such, but that's speculation.
What was a crime though, was collaborating with Dooku in artificially creating and sustaining a war, which, under the assumption that he was a Sith, Sheev did.
>>
>>65101843

Yes, being a proper Muslim literally means being an enemy of the state.
>>
>>65101906
So lets say they all have that mindset, but literally do nothing about it for hundreds of years

Do we arrest all muslims?
>>
>>65101843
Being a Nazi is though (at least in most Europe countries). Which I'd say is similar.
>>
>>65101945
If the last time they were allowed to exist they nuked half the planet, and this drive to dominate everyone else was literally part of being muslim. Yes.

Fortunately, reality isn't as black and white as fucking star wars.

This. Obi-Wan talked about him like he was a great and proud knight fighting for good and justice, but then Darth Vader killed him. So I always thought he actually was like that before he turned.

when mace dindu tired to arrest Sheev under the authority of the galactic senate, Sheev was legally elected and had legally obtained emergency powers that trumped the senates. On top of that the senate did not authorize the arrest and the Jedi aren't the senates police. They're peace keepers. Mace really was the traitor

Sure, but in this case it could easily be decided democratically by the senate. The problem is that Sheev killed the Jedi. It doesn't matter if Jedi were in legal right to arrest him or not. He could just sue them legally for arresting him if he were innocent.

He has to be a fascist child murderer from the beginning.

From what we saw Vader do in the OT, I'd say Anakin was way, way more evil.

The funny thing is, though, that Dooku knows that Sidious is Palpatine. So he knows that it ultimately doesn't matter who joins the CIS or not. The CIS is just there to provide conflict so emergency powers and shit are given to Sheev.

Since Palpy ultimately controls both: If the CIS win, Palpatine wins. If the Republic/Empire wins, Palpatine wins.

Dooku doesn't really need to tell anyone anything. He just needs to let things happen and Sheev wins. Which is one of the weaknesses of the prequels. There's no good ending either way.

I never got the impression that he knew his master was palpatine.

It always seemed to me that he was fed information to get him to do what Palpatine wanted, but never saw the whole picture.

>>65102787
Vader didn't order the destruction of Alderaan though, that was Tarkin.

>>65102831
He knew. He mentioned to Obi wan that a sith was leading the Senate. Either hes a really lucky guesser or he knew.

The worst thing Vader did was not stop it, he didn't push the button or even order it to be pushed.
>>
>>65102881
Yes he knows palpatine is evil, not that the hooded guy talking to him is palpatine. To him he was fighting the war to dispose of the sith who's taken over the senate.
>>
>>65102898
Yes, I'm not defending what he's saying, but that's the justification he has internally. "These disagreements stop the republic doing good, a strong figure would be able to do good"

That kind of thing is a big part of what lucas was going for. People choosing dictatorship over republic, only to have it not work out so great.

>>65102930
He knows about the rule of two, he would have read the Sith scriptures, and if I recall correctly he says something like

It's shitposting, not serious belief. It's like people saying the moral of Lord of the Rings is that Sauron was the good guy and did nothing wrong, etc.
>>
>>65102970
It's true though, the problem is that you need a legitimately good dictator without human flaws. An AI would probably be a good choice of a dictator for such state.

This

The Dark side relies on tapping into your emotion for power where as the Light side relies on your logic and clear mind.

Its easier to be emotional than to let stuff go. This is essentially why the Jedi are hypocrites. The only jedi that truely is emotion free is Yoda.

They dont. I just think, like a lot of chemicals in our body powers are stimulated by raw emotion.

They don't, they're not sentient. Midi-chlorians are just a messenger between the Force and living organisms. The Force is all the same, Dark side only means you abuse its use.

Different emotions release different hormones, which the midi chlorians can react too. But that's just bullshit of course; science to make it sound right but even that is so stupid, I can't even shitpost it without complaining.

There are no midichlorians and if we assume they did, they are unrelated to Dark Side/Light side; they just offer potential and the Dark Side is how you use that potential
>>
>>65103697
The comment you're replying to isn't technically wrong, but it explains it badly. Windu uses (and helped create) a form of lightsaber combat called Vaapad, which doesn't directly tap into the dark side, but does require the user to be very emotionally invested in the duel. The idea was that it took partly from both Jedi and Sith styles making it unpredictable and was a good counter for Sith lightsaber forms which had in turn evolved to counter the Jedi's, and thus caught them off guard a bit.
>>
>>65103891
>Maul
Blunt object for killing, though I think maces (which looks like his head) can be considered a maul too
>>
>>65103751
I always saw it as dependent on one's definition of strength and power, and it being a trade-off of sorts.

The Dark Side allows aggression to provide bursts or power and allows physical greatness, like choking, lightning, mentally breaking people or whatever. Some people might define that as strength/power. But, for that, you limit your existence to your physical body. You might learn how to do things with practice but you'll die and be gone forever.

The Light Side, though, while bound by morality, allows you to deepen your connection to the Force on a more complete and eternal level.

Even Vader respects the Force itself, seeing it as more powerful than anything else. As a Light Sider, you end up becoming one with that Force forever.
>>

>democratically elected

Okay then.
And the transition from the Republic to the Galactic Empire was met with applause, people wanted the change, which was exactly what Sheev was going for.

Fuck you. Sheev was right.

Makes sense. Of course, That means Lightside and Darkside are false dichotomies that the Jedi made up. I guess the Sith stupidly bought into it when they could have done their own thing.

>>65103920
There are no midichlorians
Didn't Qui-Gon say they were there?
>>
>>65103891
If Sidious is Insidious then I think it's more likely Vader is Invader.
>>
>>65101923
And they had literally zero evidence Sheev was behind the Separatists and the whole Clone War.
And Windu didn't even bother to tell Sheev Grievous was dead to see his reaction.
For all Windu knew, Sheev was going to step down as chancellor. But he went to arrest him, lightsaber drawn, because he was suspected of being a Sith Lord.
The Jedi brought their downfall on themselves.
>>
>>65104019

>>
>>65104069
Vader literally means father in dutch.

But by your theory Tyranus must be Darth Tyranasaurus Rex
>>
>>65104019
It kind of makes sense. The Light side means letting the Force guide you and only using its power sparingly for defense and protecting. The Dark side means harvesting the Force for your own profit and bending it to your will. That's why 'Balance to the Force' means getting rid of all Sith, and not just making Sith and Jedi equal in count. Jedi don't imbalance the Force, only the Sith do.

There are midi-chlorians, but we are only told that the Force communicates through them. Think of them like an antenna recieving and transmitting signals from the Force.
>>
>>65104076
It would have gone literally the same way if Mace said that Grievous was dead first.
>>
>>65104124
Presumptious
>>
>>65104092
Why the fuck would GL name a character set in a different galaxy after a Dutch word that would spoil the entire trilogy if deciphered? Where is the logic there compared to how the other Sith + Grievous are named (after slightly altered words with obvious negative connotations)?

Use your head
>>
>>65103920
The midichlorians aren't the Force, though.
Nor do their count indicate proficiency with the Force.
>>
>>65104092
He didn't name Vader after the Dutch word you literal fucking retard.
It was a fucking coincidence, he's named after invader.
>>
>>65104185
It indicates your potential though.
>>
>>65104177
He didn't. It was a lucky coincidence that Lucas wasn't aware of until after Star Wars became famous. Especially noticeable given that Vader wasn't originally Luke's father in early scripts.
>>
>>65104177
Yeah, its just coincidence that the character with the biggest plot twist in movie history has the name of his twist in a language spoken in many countries (German for father is also vater)
>>
>>65104092
Look up what T.rex comes from: Tyrant Lizard

So you are going the wrong way:

Take a Sith name -> Go to Latin
NOT
Sith name-> Latin -> Use latin to find a similar name
>>
>>65102898

>>

How the fuck does Darth Invader even make sense? Who the fuck does he even Invade?
>>
>>65104124
And then Windu could've sent word back to the Council to go to the Senate to get legality for arresting Sheev. And if they failed, the Senate would be against Sheev and his proposition of giving him ultimate power in the Republic by making him Emperor.
>>
>>65104221
>Especially noticeable given that Vader wasn't originally Luke's father in early scripts.
Seems like more proof that he wasn't named after the Dutch word, unless you're saying that the realisation of the word's meaning influenced his writing of the plot between ANH and the last two movies? I couldn't honestly disagree with you there because I plain don't know, but I'm sceptical.

The first draft of Empire Strikes Back was written by Leigh Bracket and didn't include Vader being Luke's father. That wasn't developed until later drafts. The father/son thing between them wasn't planned from the start.

No, that's a bit different. I think they meant Qui Jon might be a bit brasher, or some other personality type, not what he thinks about the Force.

I mean, you can tell they disapprove of how weird he acts. I think it's different than his interpretation of what creates the Force, though probably IS related to using it.

Well, I refuse to believe that it's just a coincidence that one of the main characters of the story is conveniently also named after the huge plot twist of said story, so I'm rather sure that George at least has kept it as a possibility
>>65104374
But that's only the first draft, before Lucas got to influene it.

Valiantly Luke lifts his saber to parry; then as Vader’s blade comes streaking down, Luke deactivates his sabre and darts aside. Thrown momentarily off balance because the unexpected ruse and the lack of opposition to his blade, Vader is overbalanced. Luke leaps aside and over the railing into the shaft.

Even the fucking first draft has people use the turn on/off capabilities of sabers to their advantage, why does that never come up again

Who says they didnt?
>>
>>65104293
Sorry if I worded badly but that's what I'm saying. He wasn't named after the Dutch word.

In fact, in the very early draft of the first movie Darth Vader was a non Force using General of the Empire. Just your average bad guy. The cloaked Sith was originally a character called Prince Valorum. Lucas just ended up merging their characters over time.
>>
>>65104452

Can you imagine what the scene would look like?
People activating their lightsabers in the OT while stationary already looks jarring as fuck, I couldn't imagine what it looks like if both them were mobile.
>>
>>65104350
So, on the one side we have one 5 minute scene has soft proof that his name is supposed to be 'Darth Invader'
On the other side we have the major plot twist of the entire series as soft proof that his name is supposed to be 'Darth Father'
I go with the second theory
Of course, we can also merge the two and suggest that it was initially supposed to be Darth Invader, but then Lucas noticed the resemblance of Vader and Father and came up with the twist
>>
>>65104525
I think that's the major reason why they didn't utilize that- technological limits
>>
>>65104534
Lucas didn't come up with the twist though.
And certainly not while filming A New Hope.
Remember that literally no one thought A New Hope would be a success, it's why the Directors' Guild and Screenwriter's Guild let him off the hook with not having opening credits.
>>
>>65104494
So wait, Lukes father really was a good friend and not some autistic spaz?
>>
>>65104534
I know what you mean, but I'm starting to feel it really means to be Invader, especially with the naming schemes for all Sith, ever.

Darth Icky was HIS creation by the way
>>
>>65104436
But the father/son thing wasn't planned from the beginning. Much like Leia being Luke's sister wasn't. Writers develop new ideas as they work on stories and drafts over time.

Also, notice how Obi-Wan doesn't refer to his old pupil as "Vader" on the Death Star, as his identity. He calls him "Darth". Because Darth was originally the characters first name, not a title.

And notice how Luke sees no problem with announcing himself as Luke Skywalker, like he hasn't been raised to hide his name. Or had that name kept from him for his safety. Cause, originally, he didn't need to cause Vader wasn't a former Skywalker.

It started as a straight forward "avenge my dead father against the man who killed him" hero's quest, and just became better over time.
