    Have to take a moment and appreciate the patience that Palpetine had during the entire PT. This man visualized that he would be in power probably even before Anakin was born and plotted perfectly until it happened. Even when some things didn't go as planned he didn't jump in and expose himself. He anticipated how the Jedi and the republic would respond to each one of his moves and smiled. I have to give this man props on that.

    I guess. No different than any politician. It often takes a lifetime of building alliances, influence and power to achieve your end goal.

    yeah I always thought his plot was just brilliant , to dismantle the Republic from within , to manipulate it to conspire its own demise etc.

    I love the way he fomented a sustained period of bloodshed and conflict, divisive politics and all out war for his own narcissistic ends. So many feels of admiration.

    Kylo who?

    Yeah. When you appreciate the incredible patience he showed for so long in quietly amassing power right underneath the Jedi's noses, his wild exuberance at the end of ROTS starts to make more sense. He's kept it all hidden and bottled up for so very, very long that it must be a thrill to let it all out and reveal his true self.

    Palpatine never stopped working for his plan of Galactic Dominance; even by III he was still working. Patience is more like waiting for a long time to reap the benefits of something you did a long time ago...

    Definitely. He was always implementing parts of his plan. Always. Everything he did was tailored to his end goal. He was the best in the business and no one will beat him in this regard.

    Exactly and he wasn't no punk either. I was just telling one of my co workers who was talking about oh when he fought Yoda he almost loss. First of all its Yoda. Then I had to show him the clip from The Clone Wars when he confronted Darth Maul and his apprentice. That was awesome!

    Your avatar of Darth Plageuis is awesome btw.

    I concur. You have to give credit where it's due. What a man. Palpatine is a legend. I mean seriously what a beautiful plan. I personally liked the Jedi. I detested the corrupt Republic. Palpatine's long game was incredible. He outplayed everyone. Shame he became too arrogant in his old age by ROTJ and pointlessly tied the hands of an Imperial Fleet that could have obliterated the Rebellion there and then.

    If only we had such a visionary leader and well told villain in ST. I think it was magnificently shown how Palpatine got himself into power and LEGITIMATELY became the ruler of the galaxy.

    The Jedi coup etc. His patience. My word, Master Yoda should tell the story of Darth Sidious the Patient, when instructing Luke on the art of patience. What a plan. Order 66, brilliant. Terrible yes, but brilliant.

    I mean Palpatine has to be the most genius villain in the galaxy. You got to hand it to him, no matter which side you are on.

    The relish with which he issues an executive order, "The time has come"

    "Master Yoda.... At last the Jedi are no more!"
