You got Lulu'd
"Sir, there's a ship approaching. It has Republic markings and they say ambassadors from the Supreme Chancellor are on board."
"Shoot it down."
"Inform the Republic Senate that there was an unfortunate accident."
Plagueis locks his bedroom door.
We are a lot thinner, now.
"Here master: Tattooine. It's small, out of the way, poor. The Republic has no presence there."
"No, Obi-Wan. I doubt we'd be able to find the parts we need to repair the ship on such a desolate planet. We'll simply have to take our chances in a more populated system."
This wouldn't have ended the Saga but would've drastically changed it. Anakin NOT mentioning where he was going to kill the Separatist leaders. Why would he tell Padme he was going to Mustafar? Bcs the plot required him to. This line always seems awkward & out of place. Inserted by a writer to advance the story.
Tarkin: Two things Darth Vader. First, I am not agreeing to you letting them escape the Death Star in the Milenium Falcon. And Second, get that damn exhaust port fixed, and no need to get estimates for it.
"No ship that small has a cloaking device!"
"Well then how could it hide, the only thing the same color is our destroyers..."
^ Speaking of which, I always wondered:
"Why is Boba Fett asking to move his ship to the garbage hold? What is he up to? Does he know something we don't? Let's check out the garbage hold and its surrounding area."
"Everybody strap yourselves in. Chewie, you put the seat belts back in before we left, right?"
Chewie looks over at Han silently.
I think you are missing the point that
a) He trusts Padme
b) It reinforces how far he has fallen that he is divulging info regarding his cold mission to her. He isn't the same person he was.
- Master, the Chancellor's sending us to Naboo to settle some kind of dispute.
- How much's he paying?
- Fifty credits.
- Forget it. Put the kettle on, Obi-Wan.
"The Rebel vase is on a moon on the far side, we are preparing to orbit the planet."
"Blow the planet up, then the moon. Then bring me my slippers.
No, I got the point. It was that Lucas needed Padme to follow Anakin to Mustafar. So he had him clumsily reveal the location of his mission to her.
The aspects I mentioned are important too.
He immediately asks if Padme and the baby are safe, then lies to himself and his wife that the Jedi are traitors.
He has become obsessed, the scene is characterising him as Vader.
Plus this is the first time he has seen Padme, and he is going to leave again straight away. You don't think she deserves an explanation?
Your complaint comes across as pedantic to me.
The intention is that we feel the tragedy in Anakin's (misguided) plans imploding when Padme, out of fear for her husband, decides not to adhere to his request for her to stay behind and instead follows him.
I think if the plot didn't require him to do otherwise he would've simply said "The Chancellor has given me an important mission. I'm going to arrest the Separatist leaders & end this war" ...or something like that. No need to name-drop the location.
Perhaps, but I personally don't hear the awkwardness you claim present.
"The Chancellor has given me a very important mission." (Blind to the fact this will bring Padme no comfort.)
"The Separatists have gathered on the Mustafar system. I'm going there to end this war."
I hear more Anakin's hate of the Separatists for destabilising the galaxy, and his arrogance and overconfidence in proclaiming himself solely responsible to deal with it.
It seems appropriate to me, Padme isn't informed of the situation and Anakin is also venting to the only person he has told, someone he trusts with the information.
This made me legitimately laugh out loud.
"Chancellor Vallorum, this Naboo crisis needs to be solved. What can we do?"
"What if I were to secretly send two Jedi to handle the negotiations?"
"Sir, without Senate approval? That's not going to look good, politically."
"Yes, that's true. Besides, the Jedi might send in some joker who'll start cutting everyone down. We'll send in some experienced diplomats. Maybe Palpatine can recommend someone?"
Mace Windu: He has control of the Senate and the courts! He's too dangerous to be left alive!
Darth Sidious: I'm too weak! Don't kill me, no!
Anakin Skywalker: I agree, Master Windu.
"I can't have children." - Leia
BEN: Yeah, uncle Luke?
LUKE: We need to talk.
"Luke, you switched off your targeting computer! What's wrong?"
"Oops... didn't mean to hit that button. First time out in an X-wing and all. Okay, it's back on now!"
Lucas: The momemnt fans develop headcanon and base their expectations on them will be the day I end Star Wars forever.
(Saga eneds after ANH).
Krennic: All Imperial forces have been evacuted and I stand ready to destroy the entire moon.
Tarkin: Excellent. You may fire when ready.
"Terminate her. Immediately."
"Yes sir.... And it's done."
