    Palpatine would have fried Grievous with some force lightning.

    I would have loved to see anakin do force lightning.

    The PT needed fewer people yielding Force lightning, not more. I'm looking at you and your lame lightning, Dooku. :p

    Why do people call it force lightning, I just realized. It didn't look like lightning. Looked more like electricity.

    Why do you think the PT should have had less force lightning? Why are you say against it? How else would mace windu die from Palpatine?

    So why are you talking and asking questions about them?

    Because most think it does look like lightning... and lightning is essentially electricity anyway.

    I think the PT should have had less lightning because I didn't like that Dooku used it, which is why I mentioned him. I was fine with Palpatine having it, just as he did in the OT. So the way Mace died from it was fine with me.

    I liked dooku using it on anakin. It was a parralel to luke getting zapped in ROTJ. When luke was getting tortured by the emperor, anakin remembers and has a flashback of dooku zapping him with force lightning. Interesting parallel. Agree or not?

    If not force lightning, how should windu have died? If you didn't go along with the lightning explanation.

    But you were talking about the PT even before you've changed your opinion two days ago. Did you use a time-travelling starship to write these postings?

    So, let me get this straight. You think your boss, the most powerful man in the galaxy...

    [​IMG]


    Is actually the most evil being in history and is single-handedly responsible for the clone wars...

    [​IMG]

    and spends his spare time teaching other people how to shoot lightning from their fingertips...

    [​IMG]

    And your plan is to have a metallic, cowardly cyborg kill this person?


    [​IMG]

    Good luck... :p

    Is this some kind of joke? What does Morgan freeman have to do with anything? He's one of my favorite actors. What does a cowardly cyborg have anything to do with morgan freeman? Say what?

    There's nothing wrong with a superhuman character shooting lightning from his fingertips. It's sci fi, fantasy, whatever genre you want to call it. People have superpowers in that kind of fiction. So are you saying that the rebels were right in starting a war that cost millions, possibly billions or trillions of galactic lives, because some guy had a dark, powerful, superpower. That is irrelevant to the quadrillions of imperial citizens. We're waging war because we don't like your superpowers, was not was the rebels said.

    Palpatine was evil, no question. He started the clone wars, which costed billions of galactic lives, just so he could get power for himself. You are correct. Palpatine was evil.

    My issue is not whether or not the emperor did evil things. The issue, is, the rebels started an unnecessary unjust war and their quest to defeat Palpatine wasn't nessecary or good. Because after he came to power, that was done and over with. No reason to wage war against him or Vader. Many countries came to power because of supposedly evil means, some would argue.

    Back on topic. Palpatine could not be defeated by Grevious. Grevious was just a cyborg non force-sensitive, Palpatine was a Sith Lord.

    What kind of advantages does Grevious have over Palpatine, or vice versa? That's crucial to this discussion.

    For some reason I don't think Shmi is an option.
