    Had Anakin done the right thing given that Qui-Gon died at the hands of a Sith, Anakin lost a limb at the hands of a Sith, that Palpatine is the Sith Lord that the Jedi had been looking for. Had Anakin listened to Mace Palpatine would be dead 10 times already.

    Let's give Anakin some credit. He's not entirely stupid. Palpatine still needs to get Anakin to join him. So he would provoke Mace into attacking him, which will result in Anakin choosing a side. Anakin knows that Palpatine is powerful as the three dead Jedi attest. What he doesn't know is that Palpatine fakes being weak, when the Lightning fails to stop Mace. Nor does he know that Mace is going to die the first chance Palpatine gets. The whole point is to get Anakin to pick a side and if the boy is convinced that his life is in danger, then so be it. He will provoke an attack to get Anakin and Mace to react accordingly. It's rather simple.

    Now, if Anakin chose to refuse, Palpatine wouldn't turn on him right away. He'd continue to try and bring Anakin in. The only way this scenario has a chance of happening is if Anakin all of a sudden decides that he can live without Padme and stops being greedy and selfish.

    Anakin has to be a complete idiot to end up like he did. That's besides the point. The chancellor apparently thinks he's a nitwit because it's not about Anakin getting what he wants. It's about Sidious getting what he wants. Yes, Anakin made the choice and we know it was the wrong choice.

    Obi-Wan and Anakin are the only two Jedi during the entire millennium since the Sith were thought to be extinct until when they revealed themselves who killed a Sith. You can not bring a Sith Lord into custody, even if he surrenders. Anakin in my opinion did the right thing by killing Dooku. Palpatine is using seduction and manipulation. If Anakin had the sense he was born with he would have killed Palpatine right where he stood.


    Now let us say Anakin somehow found the inspiration and morale to go on without Padme. Let's say he didn't want to be confused anymore and started having moments of clarity and did the right thing and Padme lives anyway. Let's say he sacrificed her in that way willing to see her and Luke perish but it does not happen.

    Palpatine would surely be pissed at Anakin newfound attitude and he would no doubt try to kill him.

    I agree. Palpatine would be a fool not to show his true colors at this point. If Anakin turns on him then he has nothing. And Palpatine wouldn't come as far as he did to throw it all away and allow the Sith to die out. He would resort to something. Sith lightning, perhaps.

    Hey buds. Hey I hate to be the fool who breaks up a forum with a pathetic question but here's my ?. What if mace lived? What if he, once flown from the window, half dead and deranged with sith lightning, landed on a passing speeder and somehow made it to the ground safely? Then decided to begin to train other young padawans to become jedi. Then he would bring him and his padawans to the remnants of the old jedi temple. Then he would reach luke skywalker to convice him to return to courasount to rebuild the old temple instead of on yavin 4. Then together they would live in peace for a thousand years and then the sith would strike again and lukes son would eventually become sith and then the saga would continue over and over again until the end of the universe.

    What if? lol...u decide if it is pathetic or awesome
