I know that a lot of people who've seen ROTS have picked up on the similarity between Palpatine's claim to Anakin that Count Dooku was "too dangerous to be kept alive" and Mace Windu's insistence that Palpatine was "too dangerous to be left alive." Others have pointed out the similarities between the circumstances under which Anakin ultimately turns to the Dark Side (ROTS) and the circumstances under which he turns back to the Light (ROTJ), as well as the way in which Mace fits into this. (And, just for the record, I would like to add that I think Mace was justified, albeit barely, in trying to kill Palpatine, or at least he would have been if it hadn't set such a bad example for the already morally destabilized Anakin.) But, I have to wonder...How many people remember a certain statement of Mace's from AOTC? When Padme states her belief that Count Dooku was behind her attempted assassination, Mace counters with "You know, milady, Count Dooku used to be a Jedi. He couldn't assassinate anyone. It's not in his character." I was just wondering if anybody else had picked up on the irony of Mace making a statement like this and then ending up posthumously tarred with the label of "assassin" himself!
