    That was evil, for sure. But would that have happened if the rebel alliance never existed and stole droids?

    How did that explain everyone on tattoine happy the empire was gone? Almost all the population had no stake in the outcome, if the empire won or lost. The empire didn't affect their personal lives. Other than that, why was the empire evil? I'm not arguing. I'm just asking, why were Tattoine citizens happy the empire was gone? Cheering crowds mean a lot.

    Even before owen and beru died, luke hated the empire, implying the evil did a lot of other evil things to the people of Tattoine. What did they do exactly? How were they a dictatorship?

    Riight. Because it's the rebel's fault. Maybe the government shouldn't murder random civilians if they're on some sort of moral high ground?

    I'd suggest the Empire randomly murdering their neighbors sure explains why people were pleased.

    As for Luke: Maybe he actually cares about the rest of the galaxy?

    Luke hated the empire even before owen and beru died. What evil things did they do before that?

    Are you saying that the senators in ROTS created the rebellion because of a self fullfilling prophecy?

    Yep, nothing evil going on here.

    Deleted scenes aren't canon, btw. ;) In any event, ROTS explains why the Senators started the Rebellion. It's not because of a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    Luke, leia, and the rest of the rebel alliance weren't fighting against the empire to avenge the younglings. That was irrelevant at that point. It happened 20 years before.

    The Sith hated the Jedi because the Jedi hated the sith.

    Why didn't the jedi want the sith to take over?

    Um, why don't Democrats want Republicans to take over? Because they don't. Why do I not like eggs? Because I don't. Good people do not want bad people taking over. Then, there's this thing called evil. Evil is not a desirable thing. Incompatability and common sense.
    Jedi Code:
    There is no emotion, there is peace.There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.There is no passion, there is serenity.There is no death, there is the Force.
    Sith Code
    Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
    Through passion, I gain strength.
    Through strength, I gain power.
    Through power, I gain victory.
    Through victory, my chains are broken.
    The Force shall free me.
