I personally would like to see Palpatine do it. As mentioned before, Mace will solve the mystery and confer with Yoda. Mace decides to confront the Chancellor. That's when Palpatine finally reveals his true sith power and dispenses Mace rather easily. I don't think we'll see Boba again until ANH. I don't know how Vader or Dooku will fit into this though. Honestly, there's a heck of alot that needs to be resolved in Episode 3 and I'm curious as to how Lucas will pull it off in 2 hours. *looks up at the calender* ARRGGG!!!
