    It's hard to believe that Count Dooku could duel with Yoda, had tremendous amounts of knowledge when it came to the Force as he stated to Yoda on Geonosis, that Yoda could throw Sidious around like a rag doll, yet Dooku is incapable of defeating Sidious himself. Dooku was well respected within the Jedi Order for a reason, yet fell to the dark side and became Lord Tyranus. Sidious is more powerful than Dooku supposedly, yet Yoda countered everything Sidious dished out, and Dooku and Yoda fended off one another in their own contest.

    I'll never understand why Mace and Yoda can throw and kick Sidious around, yet Count Dooku, with all of his experience, knowledge, and power, can not....it just doesn't make sense.

    i wouldn't say Mace threw anybody around, Sidious never intended to kill him.

    I don't quite buy that. So, Mace is the second baddest Jedi in the galaxy during that time and he goes to arrest the Chancellor. The Chancellor is playing possum with Mace because he wants Anakin to witness the act of treason instead of it being a coinidence that Sidious got his behind kicked and was about to die when Anakin walked in to save the Chancellor?

    I wouldn't say Mace is the 2nd baddest jedi, i would say the 4th.

    IMO Sidious is far stronger in the Force than Dooku, but I think Dooku's saber skills would give Sidious a real challenge!

    i think its is possible, Dooku was different than the other sith Maul was evil, DV wanted power, Dooku went to the darkside b/c of politics, and he disagreed with the jedi.
