I have been reading many threads and Im astounded at the replies that have surfaced regarding Sifo-dyas. It is a mystery and I don't think it will be reveiled in ep3. Many of you have come up with interesting ideas that seem more like you could rewrite lucas's story all together,but I think it is more simple. Sifo-dyas is dead and his identity is not important eccept he is a member of the jedi council. I agree that his identity was used and that the fact remains that he wasn't alive long enough to order a creation of an army. It would take to much time in a 2 hour film to explain such a conspiracy. There is so much too explain about its ep3's plot that you probably wouldn't even care about sifo-dyas, because... uh .. he's dead. Perhaps I'm wrong and I hope I am, because I, like many of you, like a story that is twisted plot wise. Paltine should be a clone. I always thought that, because it is way too obvious that palp. and sidious are one. Ddduuuhh... You might be disappointed if they are. I saw the new figurines where they inter-change into one another leading me to beleive they are the same. DAMN YOU LUCAS!!! Anyways, there is no mystery involved about sifo-dyas. The jedi faled in seeing what would happen and thats the end... or is it?
