    The whole names thing seems to get less and less important with Palpatine over time...he doesn't go publically declaring himself as Darth Sidious, nor does Luke get a Sith name (that we know of) in Dark Empire decades later.

    There are a lot of Sith who continued to use their own names. Freedon Nadd, Marka Ragnos and Exar Kun for example. Even Revan and Malak used their own names and just stuck a Darth in front.

    Actually, Malak's real first name was Alek, but close enough.

    He changed it before becoming Darth Malak though, right?

    Well Ahsoka probably assumed she was a Sith.

    Yup- in the KOTOR comics it's fairly clear that both "Revan" and "Malak" are names those Jedi have chosen for themselves at some point (I think when they started the Revanchist movement).

    I don't think it matters if there were sith disciples or sith wannabes in this period. The only sith of actual relevence were vader and sidious. They actually influenced the galaxy.

    I don't care what post Obsession Ventress is doing. She should just stick her hand in the sands of Tatooine.

    Doesn't Tarkin know that the Emperor is also a part of that "religion"?

    The Emperor was never a Jedi though- he was part of a slightly different religion ;)

    I think there were only a few people who actually new the truth. That's what made the revelation more powerful. The Emperor shooting lightning from his hands were more of a shocker to me as a kid than Vader's paternity results.
