    I just had an idea and noticed something from return of the jedi. Luke escaped the death star 2, just as it exploded. Not a few minutes later, not even seconds, he survived by one second. If the emperor's throne room scene or even how fast/slow he walked at any time changed, Luke wouldn't have lived. It was a coincidence. Did anyone else notice that?

    Also, no one really seemed to think about Luke being on it until after it exploded. His presence didn't become another obstacle preventing the attack, like the shield being up. That could have been interesting.

    "Soon I'll be dead. And you with me."

    Luke didn't expect to survive the Battle Of Endor. He just has good timing. Or, y'know, The Force.

    Wish the EU would give us a bone and state that Luke knows the ghosting trick (it'd be daft for Yoda to not teach it to him, IMO) by ROTJ. His calm confidence reminds me alot of Ben in ANH confronting Vader.

    But yeah, Luke didn't expect to survive.

    That was touched on in The Black Fleet crisis books.
    But the less said about that mess the better..

    Truth be told, I haven't read it since it was first published. I'll give it another go one of these days.[face_laugh]

    It'd be better if there was an actual fleet battle at the end. :p
