    it's not important is it? I love all of star wars :) my answer is based purely on emotion.. it's not about the character.. it's about what the character did and how they acted, not so much the actual character.. I thought the actual character looked really really cool... I just didn't like what they did. [face_blush]

    so maybe it's not that they are my least favorite.. it's that they are my most loved to hate character.. though I suppose hate is a strong word...

    'splain... why you not like Mace?

    Because I think he played right into Palpatine's hands and gave Anakin more than enough reason to doubt the Jedi Order. Mace was supposed to be this strong of will and commitment Jedi, up there with Yoda and he did not act like it.. (again, this is not the fault of Mace, it is the character developement and I did not like where character developement took Mace Windu when it came to Anakin, Mace did not act like a Jedi, he acted like a Sith)

    Now, the book Shatterpoint.. that made Mace into the awesome Jedi I figured and expected him to be! Once I read Shatterpoint it changed my whole perception of Mace.. it doesn't change what he later did though....Mace's actions and words towards and about Anakin, was imho part of what made it so easy for Palpatine to get Anakin over to the 'dark' side.

    So your problem with Mace is that he never completely trusted Anakin, the Jedi who would turn against his own by becoming a Sith Lord, slaughtering the Jedi younglings, and helping Darth Sidious hunt down and destroy the Jedi Order.
    Oh, wait, there is the one time Mace did completely trust Anakin. He trusted Anakin to watch his back while Mace fought with Sidious, and Anakin slices Mace's arm off. You're right, if only Mace had been more trusting of the young Jedi, Anakin could have helped KILL MACE SOONER.

    I think what made it easy for Anakin to turn to the Dark Side was that his emotions were used aganist him, plain and simple. And, Palpatine knew Anakin's greatest weakness was his inability to control them. Palpatine knew what strings to pull, and Anakin was manipulated along with everyone else.

    Yep, Mace was just as manipulated as Anakin was... they all were (the galaxy not just the Jedi and Sith orders).

    If that?s the reason to dislike Mace than I would think it?s double for Yoda.
    At least Mace was honest about his distrust for Anakin.

    Mace still brought that on himself.. he was proving to Anakin by attempting to kill Palpatine that indeed Palpatine was right about the Jedi.. If Mace had from the beginning put faith in Anakin then perhaps Anakin would have felt the strength to carry on even in the darkest of times rather than turn to Palpatine..

    Yoda never distrusted Anakin, he distrusted their ability to read the prophecy.

    Yoda did have trust that Anakin would do the right thing, that was one of the reasons why Yoda felt he had failed, it was not just that he failed in a duel against Palpatine, Yoda failed to see what was happening and he felt very much that the Jedi Order Failed.. not just himself.. they should have been more proactive in the fight against the dark lord.. not in the fight against everything else.. Yoda felt very much to blame.. Mace never showed that.. he never showed that he should have been more attentive to what was going on... he just barreled in.. and his decision to attempt to kill palpatine is what drove anakin over the edge.

    Yes.. Palpatine orchestrated it.. but why did Mace have to attempt to kill him.. all Mace had to do was subdue Palpatine and take him in. I truly believe Anakin would have helped him do that.. Anakin was not a happy camper to find out Palpatine was the Sith, he turned him in for it in fact.. it was Mace's actions that drove Anakin over the edge I say again.

    Mace was trying to subdue Palpatine at first, but when it became apparent that there was no way Palpatine would let himself be arrested, Mace had to attack. When Anakin came in and saw Mace about to kill Palpatine, Palpatine acted like a baby and twisted the truth so that Anakin would do what he wanted. Mace didn't cause that. I do have to agree though, Mace could have put a little more faith in Anakin...if Mace had shown more approval of Anakin or more faith in his abilities, Anakin might have been a little more loyal to the Jedi. After all, if you feel like you are not appreciated or important to a group (i.e. the Jedi), why would you want to stick around?

    Going solely from memory here, Yoda did not want Anakin to become a Jedi in the first place. Qui-Gon said he would train the boy in spite of what the Council said. I hardly call that trust.

    As far as simply "subduing" Sidious, please remember; four Jedi went in, only one was still alive when Anakin arrived. With three of your fellow Jedi lying dead around you, that is hardly the time to ask, "So, Sidious, had enough, or do we, err, I have to get rough?"

    Kat's assessment of Sidious/Palpatine's actions after Anakin arrived is quite correct. Sidious/Palpatine twisted the situation to make himself look the victim, and make Mace APPEAR to be the bad guy. If Anakin had pulled his head out of his butt long enough to look around and see the three dead Jedi, Sidious/Palpatine's "help me, I'm a helpless old man" routine might not have swayed him as much. If you should read this, George, no need to re-write the entire series just to please me. Overall, your story works, although the "dead Padme" part still confuses me.:D
