I am a big fan of the PT and ROTS is my favorite film. But there are two things in this particular scene that gets to me and I'd like your opinions on. 1. How Sidious takes out 3 Jedi masters in less than 5 seconds. I understands he's a great sith lord who knows his way around a lightsaber, but it's like they're not even able to put up a fight. I think the scene would have been better if they had let them get one or two swooshes, at least, before being killed, instead of just being stabbed right away like they hadn't even been in a fight before. It's not like they didn't see him coming/flying across the room. 2. "I can't hold any longer". He's basically killing himself here. Why not just stop the force lightning so that Mace can't send back? I get that Mace probably would have just chopped him to pieces if Sidious hadn't been so set on doing the job himself, but still.. why?
