    This gets better and better. Cutting out the only decent character from the previous films?

    Clearly the entire Saga up until this point has been about Obi-Wan, from his apprenticeship to a Jedi Master to his challenge training and killing the chosen one.

    I cannot believe that Obi Wan will die in the next film.

    If the Star Wars saga is not about the trials and tribulations of Obi-Wan Kenobi, then what is it really about?

    How to make the most money DA.


    Removing Palpatine from this movie is a bad move. he was the only good character and one of two good actors (McGregor was the other actor) who did a good job. Remove Palpatine, kill off Kenobi. EXCELLENT JOB LUCAS. [/sarcasm]

    I second this. How bad is it that Palpatine is missing? Is he gone for good? [face_worried] What the heck. You can't take the major villain of the first 3, crown him Emperor and then go, well, he's gone now. Dumb. Just dumb. :_|

    Yeah!
    I can't see the movie working very well when he's not in it again.
    I mean, does Lucas think we'd not notice he's missing? And where could he be? Prolonged vacation in an anti-wrinkle-spa?:rolleyes:
    He's the friggin ruler of the galaxy, you can't just ignore that!

    Nah, you can't do that with Photoshop. [face_shame_on_you]

    Yeah, you don't want Lucasfilm to shut down TF.N.

    Maybe Vader overthrows Emperor Palpatine between III and IV.

    Emperor Darth Vader would be pretty cool. Chosen one. Sith Lord. Emperor.

    Palps isn't in it because he went to Highbury and was determined to stay until Arsenal won.
