When I saw Return of the Jedi, Palpatine was an ok villain, but I certainly didnt think he was as great as Vader. However, TPM and AOTC have immensely improved his characterization. We now see just how cunning and clever he is. We also see how much of a bastard he is. I now say that he is the best villain of the SW saga. Yes, I dare say he is better than even Vader. What do you guys think?
