Just because it was doesn't mean that every citizen inside of the boarders was a practicing Christian. By law, yes, they were all technically Christians, but that doesn't mean they were all practicing members.
Oh, I see what you're saying. Witnesses wouldn't be there, but Palpatine engaged them in a duel. If he would have been struck down in said duel, it would have most likely been by lightsaber strike. Pretty incriminating evidence.
Also, there have to had been security cameras there. Since Palpatine won, of course he had them scrubbed, but if the Jedi had won, they would've said "look at the tapes", and that's a whole other can of worms. Prosecutors in a court case would've claimed Palpatine defended himself (the Jedi did draw lightsabers first). Probably would've also questioned if Palpatine's motives were even bad. There would probably be no way to know what he had actually been planning. Maybe some incriminating evidence about talking to both sides, but Sidious was crafty. Doubt any of that would have been traceable.
Actually this could be a really cool "what if" storyline, "The Trial of the Jedi Order"... Dark Horse is publishing Legends stuff now a days...
Ah, ok. I quite like the look of Mustafar itself, but isn't that "serves no obvious purpose" thing kinda a Star Wars trope in general? What was the point of the place Vader and Luke fought on in Episode V. A lot of that was the lower levels of the Carbon Freezing Chamber, but why a big hole?
Oh wow, you're very hard to please. The music, the emotion on the faces, little dialogue, so it's basically just visual story telling as you watch these tormented people just think? Nothing about that strikes your fancy?
To each his own, I suppose. I love that sequence.
Again, he had been having doubts the entire movie. His killing of Dooku "[wasn't] the Jedi way", he was asked to spy on the Republic's head and commit treason, and the Counsel rejected making him a master. The counsel in a matter of days seemed to be going against the one thing Anakin still mostly believed in. If Windu would just murder Palpatine just on the basis that he thinks he's evil, what really is the difference between Jedi and Sith? As cringy as some people think it is the "from my point of view the Jedi are evil!" line rings true. The Jedi stooped to the levels of the Sith and broke their own code, finally breaking Anakin's faith in the Order. Where else can he turn than to the man who claims he could save his wife?
Ok, granted, based on my phrasing there, I suppose he did change in the blink of an eye, but it wasn't "just 'cause". There were reasons why he flip flopped sides that showed why it was a long time coming.
Benedict Arnold turned in the blink of an eye, but that had been a long time coming too.
Having the bullet points of what happened written down and actually showing how and why they happened on film is different IMO.
That's being from the perspective of an (adult? teenager? Sorry, don't know age here). 9 in 10 kids ages 8 and younger will laugh at Jar Jar's antics, which is doing his job, and keeping the kids happy. Like I said,
He's not perfect, but he does his job.
Well if we want to look at this from the Legends lens, at the beginning of Episode III, Mace Windu had just done a number on his vitals. Grievous was weakened and wounded, without any time to heal before battling Kenobi, hence his basic defense and run tactics on Utapau.
Otherwise, they changed the style of attacker Grievous was between iterations of show. The Micro Series presented him as a lightning fast cyborg ninja. The Clone Wars preferred him as a heavy hitter who wore his opponents down over time with fancy tricks (like the four arms) or by cheating ("Lair of Grievous"). Either way, he's a skilled warrior, it just falls to personal preference which one you prefer, but I don't think they "ruined" the character per se.
George didn't make any sequels. That's Disney. George made Prequels.
Sorry, I couldn't resist.
He went to Luke because after Anakin became Vader, Obi-Wan DID stop believing in Anakin. Go watch the Rebels Recon episode for "Zero Hour", which has a reader question about the previous episode "Twin Suns" which featured Old Ben. Pablo Hidalgo, one of the story heads at Lucasfilm goes into a bit of dialogue between Maul and Old Ben concerning Luke.
7:00 mark. Spoilers for Star Wars: Rebels, obviously.
HAHAHAH! That's a great one. That's one I actually haven't heard before.
