    I don't think I've ever contributed to the Plot Ideas thread, but I believe it's still out there somewhere... like Palpatine. [face_devil]

    It's just that there is no way your synopsis could even resemble the real deal. We know that the big three could be written out of the script if necessary. We'll get a bunch of new leads. I don't want to be a party pooper and I enjoyed reading about your idea, but there is no way the ST could fit this plot of yours. None.
    I mean the general scenario is a possibility, I guess, but the rest is impossible.

    Let me explain: Lots of people hate this guy. He is the guy who made Anakin bad and tortured Luke Skywalker. Sometimes it is hard enough to even create sympathy for the protagonists. And then you want to take a cackling, card-carrying villain like Palpatine and make him seem pityful?
    It doesn't work, it can't work.
    Those who despise him will feel some smug satisfaction at the beginning, but be annoyed when this character arc continues.
    Those that like Palpatine, the power-hungry dictator, will be annoyed too, because they don't want to see their hero humiliated.

    Palpatine is dead. He has no more place in the story.

    He had to wait 30 years though. That's a stupidly long time.

    This has been said before, but at the outset of framing the ST they could've been written out, I doubt that is the case now after getting their commitment. So don't think that line means that the OT3, especially Luke, won't be a lead. Lucas told Hamill on the set of TESB that they wouldn't have recast him if he had died in the car accident, they would've adjusted the story. Luke was the main character of the OT and yet Lucas told Mark he could've written Luke out. Same thing here.

    Is it longer than the rule of two's stupidly long 1,000 year plan?

    I wonder if there's reincarnation in the GFFA. If so maybe Palpatine is now a fly buzzing around the enormous rear end of a Shaak. He'd be alive at least and back on his homeworld. :p

    which makes the Sith plan dumb. Sith are supposed tobe the greediest, power hungry group the GFFA has ever seen. Yet we're expected to believe they would sacrifice 1,000 years in order to get revenge? The Sith in between Bane and Sidious were team players, yet always tried to supplant the other? Noway that makes sense.

    Not alive now? Check out the explosion of Palpatine tranferring essence.

    If Palpatine transformed into a -ghost like Obi-Wan, then that huge flash of blue light was the reactor consuming his robe and saber. That image posted above doesn't show his body being destroyed, so it doesn't prove anything.

    In other words: Star Wars is over. There is nowhere for Star Wars to go after ROTJ.
