    I thought Maul would somehow survive and play a role in the next two films. Glad they brought him back, regardless.

    I thought for sure Anakin would return to Tatooine to free the slaves. I imagined this is how Owen Lars and his wife Beru came into play, that they would be slaves like his mother was. But I liked the storyline with the Tuskens Raiders better, because it again demonstrated how dangerous the sand people were.

    I thought Qui-Gon would appear as a Force Ghost.

    I knew the Sand People were a threat but that really hit it home in Episode 2.

    The reason why Palpatine chose Naboo is explained in the novel Cloak of Deception, and I can't remember but it may also have been explained in Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter and Darth Plagueis as well.

    Lucas did not bring back Maul for the next two films . . . only in a few novels. And frankly, I think he should have remained dead. Maul looked "cool" and was obviously excellent with a lightsaber. But I really don't see how he could have fit in the narratives for the other two movies.

    Because if you carry over the character, you alter the narratives for the next two films. So he would fit because he would be made to fit.

    Ahem.

    Not like Sidious needed a terrifying, genocide-prone leader of the Droid Army to scare the Republic into giving Sidious whatever he wanted or anything. Darth Grandpa sure ain't that.

    I hate that the EU brings back Maul, i hate when people bring back dead people. I can give you Boba Fett cause he never really died but this guy was CUT IN TO TWO and fall down the big hole. its just dumb
