    What things regarding The Star Wars Universe made you cringe and think....what were they thinking??!!

    I'm not meaning in the films (so please no Jar Jar, Christmas Special comments) but in the toyline, books, advertising....things like that.

    For me it would have to be the Star Wars Vault, Theres a picture of Chef from South Park in there dressed as Darth Vader but in that episode he joined a club for pedophiles :eek: not really something you'd expect Lucasfilm would want to be associated with and certainly something that had me scratching my head when I saw it.

    well your first line doesn't make sense with the rest of your post..

    So I was going to say Cloned Palpatine, now that was a silly idea :p

    There's all manner of bizarre Star Wars advertisements from the 70s. I probably laughed more than I cringed, but still, easily the weirdest things related to SW that I've ever seen.

    If I had to pick, I would probably go for the CGI Jabba added to A New Hope. It sort of made me shrink down in my chair and want to never see it again when I saw it.

    It looks like it hurts to be him.

    It didn't even look anything like Jabba. Perhaps this should be retconned.

    "Master, I heard Yoda talking about midichlorians. I was wondering, what are midichlorians?"

    or

    "Not like you. You're everything soft....& smooth"

    Worst. Dialogue. Ever.

    I don't know where you got the "Not like you. You're everything soft....& smooth" line from, but it definitely ain't Star Wars.

    Yeah it's from a movie called Attack of the Clones. Never heard of it?

    well I've heard of the line "Not like here, here everything is soft and smooth" now that line is in the said for mentioned film.

    If you're going to say something is the worst dialogue ever, at least quote it right, not to be pedantic or anything

    Wrong. It was scripted as you said but the line delivered in the film is as I've written above. Go & watch it & see for yourself.

    The end of The Force Unleashed II. And then sat in the chair stunned.
    Killiks and the hive mind on my most recent readthrough of the DNT.
    Crucible, well worse than cringed, three times.

    Vader being captured by the Rebellion before the movies? Hell being captured at all? That is disgusting.
