yeah they are basically insane and see themselves as the only true mandalorians left, purposefully discounting all the other diaspora factions as those who have lost "the way"
ergo why mando always recites that things are "the way", the only way to stay a true mandalorian in their eyes.

She goes after Luke and tries to kill him to take revenge on Vader, in doing so she realizes she would become the exact same monster Vader is and can’t bring herself to do it, instead she carries an unconscious Luke back home where she tells Obi-Wan she’s just like Vader to which Obi-Wan tells her that the fact that she couldn’t harm a child like Vader did proves they are not the same and she can atone for her wrongdoings

I watched the last couple episodes cause I read there was some cool Vader stuff, which there was. I enjoyed the fights and interactions between Kenobi/Vader. Worth pirating the last 2 episodes for that. Everything else surrounding that was a pile of dogshit and didn't even have to be there. No reason for Leia, Luke/his family, the inquisitor I guess technically needed to exist to give the plot initial movement but the actress was terrible and when she was fighting with Owen drove home the pointlessness of her character.

> why did the third sister not use her force to fight vader?
Vader is massively powerful and doesn’t give enough of a shit about Reva to leave himself open and vulnerable like with Obi-Wan
Force users do passive force shields when they fight each other, Reva isn’t strong enough to get through Vader’s
> also wtf, you can stop whole ass planes with the force?
Vader is absolute top tier as a Force user, very few are strong enough to do that
His grandson was strong enough as well

Dark siders are good at cheating death
Maul survived getting bisected
Vader survived becoming paraplegic and suffering sustained burning over his entire body which also scorched his lungs
Sidious survived being electrocuted for several seconds (bad enough he was disfigured from it)

that's so much edge
who created the dark side? is palpatine the root of all evil in SW? or is there another?

there's always a war going on, with a bad empire and good guy rebels

 No.26232

>>26231
> who created the dark side?
Nobody
The Dark Side is a natural thing, but it isn’t an outer darkness either, and it isn’t neutral it’s explicitly corrupted and explicitly evil

The Dark Side is a specific relationship to the Force, nobody created it, it’s the capacity of people who can use the Force to utilize it towards selfish ends and impose their will upon it
> is palpatine the root of all evil in SW?
He’s the root of a shit ton of evil in the story, but not all evil, no; the Sith existed before him, the dark side existed before the Sith, and the problems of the Republic that led to the Separatist movement are largely independent of the Sith

Palpatine was and is an opportunist, the Sith preceding him set up much of the grand plan, the Republic set up a situation that could be easily exploited into a war, Dooku was a Jedi who could be seduced to the dark side and rally many to his cause, the business leaders of the Galaxy could be manipulated into launching a war that would catapult Palps into power, the Force produced Anakin to stop Palpatine and Palpatine’s response was to manipulate Anakin into becoming his puppet

> there's always a war going on, with a bad empire and good guy rebels

Well, it IS Star WARS
However, there isn’t always a ruling empire vs heroic rebels; in Legends most of the wars were launched by a Sith Empire outside of Republic space trying to conquer the Republic, the Clone War was a series of planetary civil wars within a much larger civil war involving the entire Republic, the First Order - Resistance War is the Imperial Remnant invading the New Republic; only the OT is about a rebellion

I like this idea (other than the ending)

The politics of star wars seems cool (anti-imperialism, anti-fascist)

but the non-violence and against calls to action always irked me

and anakin was the chosen one and nothing really came out of the prophecy, this would've been a good ending

even without his mother dying, a good alternate reality where he creates a jedi empire would be based

I think communists would be the ones that would democratize the force by making technology that enables everybody to use the force. Darth Marx will give you force gloves and a force belt, and it will be called the prole-force.
Also the commie light saber will have a adjustable length setting. So you can laserswoopchop the entire battle field in one swing.

Star Wars absolutely isn’t non-violent or against calls to action, what are you talking about? The Original Trilogy is literally about an uprising against a fascist government.

Why?
>what are gray side users? i feel like i would be gray side user
Crappy fanfic concept/video game mechanic that significantly simplifies and cheapens the magic system of Star Wars by making it something it’s not despite seeming like it should be

Midichlorians are a spiritual organism and connect with a spiritual energy, in the story characters literally try transfusing themselves with Jedi blood to gain Force powers and it doesn’t work. The Force isn’t even about special powers, it’s about being able to interact with the energy field flowing from and back into all life; the purpose of being able to connect with that energy field is ostensibly to help life flourish, and plenty of characters have a sort of relationship with the Force without actually being able to use it, such as Donnie Yen’s character in Rogue One
>>26278
> yeah i know that but aren't jedi bascially the good guys of the franchise and they're preaching "oh killing is bad, we shouldn't do that, violence is never the answer"
Killing is bad and in an ideal world we would not need to use violence to resolve our conflicts with others, but we do not live in an ideal world. The Jedi do not want to take lives, that is true, especially since their abilities allow them to connect on a spiritual and mental level with living things and their suffering much deeper than regular people; however the Jedi still carry a weapon whose every edge cuts and burns, which can maim or kill an opponent with ease. The Jedi do not want to kill, but they will not hesitate if they must.
> "the job of the jedi is to preserve life in the universe, not end it"
Well, yes, but that’s not really a bad position for a hero? Sometimes preserving life in the universe means ending certain lives. Something I find interesting about the Jedi is that we see them fighting pirates, ancaps, fascists, religious terrorists, corporations, and criminal gangs; but we never see them fighting groups like revolutionaries or getting involved in labor disputes to crush down laborers; so I mean, that at least puts them above your average superhero
> they were all angry at anakin because he's aggressive and not so merciful
They aren’t angry with Anakin, they were pretty lenient with him despite his Sith tendencies. Anakin’s aggression was a severe problem because it opened him up to using the dark side to solve his problems that culminated in becoming Vader, his lack of mercy is a good example of where he was going considering he frequently kills people he doesn’t actually have to, to the point of slaughtering an entire village in revenge and executing a literally unarmed man.
> but i get what you mean, there's a difference between passiveness and being full on homidicial
Basically this
The Jedi are not passive, nor are they really pacifists; they just prefer to generally let the people of the Galaxy solve their own problems and avoid taking lives if they don’t have to, which imo isn’t bad
I do think a Jedi civil war over a worker’s movement in the Galaxy could make for an interesting story though
>>26277
> i just finished rewatching the first one, it's okay
In hindsight I like the sequels more now than I did when they came out
> kylo ren is the biggest sin i see, he's so fucking annoying and badly acted, nothing he said, felt real
I actually rather like Kylo’s portrayal 😅
Only criticism is that I found an, imo, better idea for Kylo online, basically Kylo without Force powers, who hates his father for “cursing” him with being regular, and is a martial artist so honed he can wield a lightsaber without the Force, and who worships Vader due to being fucked up as a Skywalker with no Force abilities
> don't like that they killed off Han Solo, humans can't come back as force ghosts rights?
Humans can, but only ones who can use the Force
Han returns in Episode IX but not as a ghost or living person either
> where did obi-wan go wrong with anakin
He was too lenient with Anakin and loved him too much to recognize the darkness rising within him

The story of Anakin and Obi-Wan is especially sad because, Obi-Wan taught Anakin everything he needed to know and was a mostly good mentor and father figure; he loved Anakin as though Anakin was his own little brother that he raised, he loved Anakin so much that he didn’t want to get in the way of Anakin’s obvious relationship even if it went against Jedi laws and didn’t want to recognize that Darth Vader was already coming to life in Anakin’s heart for years before Revenge of the Sith
Obi-Wan loved Anakin too much to create the needed boundaries between master and apprentice and too much to want to fully recognize the implications of Anakin’s flaws and do something about them
> maybe this is the actual problem, they were destined to do that
Not necessarily
Destiny is real in Star Wars, but people also have a choice in the matter
Anakin wasn’t just a puppet of fate but an active input who decided his own fate
Same as Luke
All Force users are destined to be force users, but how they use their ability is their own choice
Anakin was destined to destroy the Sith but he chose to become Darth Vader and destroy the Jedi instead

Came before MP3chlorians, it was dumb to explain the force, then you have no reason why it can't be studied and converted into technology.

The jedi support literal feudal monarchies. There is slavery in the galactic republic, and the Jedi don't seem to be bothered by that. When they went to get Anakin from Tatooine, his mother was an enslaved moisture farmer, and they couldn't even be arsed to free her. This slave of yours, Shmi Skywalker, she is's the mother of space-jesus who will bring balance to the force and piece to the galaxy, you will let her go or you'll get the lightsaber

There is near infinite content you can make from Kenobi helping to build the rebellion and fight with the resistance, particularly as it took all those episodes just for him to realise he was still a mad mfucka, in fact, more bad than we’ve ever seen him, throwing around all those rocks etc.

I personally thought that would be a pretty good series, Kenobi organising resistance to Vadar, fighting off these half sith inquisitors
