    These are the places where the duels with his former master take place. Both have similarities with Vader's thinking at the time as you can notice reading this:



    Mustafar is a hostile planet, but not completely inhabitable.
    Vader was a hostile and evil man, but there was believed that he still had goodness in him. Or so Padme prayed.

    And it was an active or-so-you-call-name-it planet. This also aludes to Vader and being in his prime, seemingly unstoppable.

    The Death Star has absolutely no use for the good of the galaxy.
    Vader is at that time "irredemable" as Obi Wan put it. He has absolutely no goodness in him at the time of ANH. Or so he would have us believe.

    Also, the Death Star HAD to be destroyed to save the worlds from an untimely fate. Like Vader (as well as the emporer) had to be killed for the Empire to end.

    Another thing, the DS was not a "biological" planet. It has no activity of a real planet or even moon. This also aludes to SUITED Vader and his being sort of clumsy inside that suit.

    A man-made moon cannot be compared to a natural moon.
    A droid-made black suited cyborg cannot be compared to the strongest Jedi.

    Interesting observation, Master_Mace_Windows!
    I don't think it's something that George Lucas was consciously aware of when he wrote the screenplays, and I think it's perhaps a bit of a stretch, but it certainly does show a good deal of thought on your part!

    I just found something out.

    Look at the DS and Vader. The DS is completely built, and Vader is completetely irredemable by then.

    Now look at the DSII and Vader again. The DSII is incomplete, and Vader is slowly losing influence and Anakin is coming back.

    This would also apply that Anakin returns to the world when the DSII is about to get destroyed, along with his Vader self.

    :eek:

    I don't mean to steal your thunder, but I think you're reading too much into the settings on this one. I mean, I suppose what you're saying is a possibility, but I just think the parallels you've drawn are unintentional. ;)

    I fully know most of them ARE unintentional, but that's the way we are, sneaky and we find parallels to everything we see :D

    The parallels are very strong and interesting, whether they were intended or not.

    Indeed. There are so many intended parallels, that I'm not surprised people, including myself, occasionally see unintended ones as well.

    And in Return of the Jedi, in reference to Vader/Death Star

    Lando - That thing is operational!

    Luke - Crap, my dad is really going to try to kill me.

    That reminds me.

    The DSII was not in position of destroying whole planets. Vader wasn't either in position of killing Luke.
